This page is about various types of Battle Droid classes. You may be looking for the B1 Battle Droid often referred to as a "Battle Droid".
B-series battle droids

Battle Droids were droids programmed for combat, and were the bulk of the Confederacy of Independent Systems' military force and the foot soldiers of the Droid Army, fighting in battles as soldiers.

While most droids were used for solely for combat purposes, there were a number of droids that had been built specifically for menial tasks and labor such as the piloting and firefighting. However these battle droids were often clumsy, and commanders such as General Grievous and Asajj Ventress held them in contempt, often destroying them in fits of rage.

Basic Types

Firefighter droid

Firefighter droids were utilized to extinguish fires that started aboard starships and to handle wreckage of crashed ships.

Droid gunner

Gunners were used as special operatives, manning AATs in battle. On Rugosa, two such droids mounted the tanks in an attempt to daunt King Katuunko, but were destroyed when Jedi Master Yoda attacked them.

Rocket battle droid

Rocket battle droids were modified with jetpacks and saws, being used by General Grievous to escort Dorch-class boarding ships.

Training B1

Training Battle Droids were used by the Kaminoans in training exercises for Clone cadets before being permitted in to battle. They fired stun blasts and were gray with yellow markings, used to highlight the droids' weak points.

Commander Battle Droid

Battle Droids in command positions were commonly used in place of organic commanders by the Separatist Alliance. These droids were not any different in the AI, and were typically a simple B1 battle droid assigned to this task.
