Heavily armoured and shielded, tempered by lack of mobility in certain situations.
Droidekas are designed with one sole function in mind: the complete annihilation of their targets.
When moving full speed forward, the Droideka folds up and rolls, with its shield shut down. In this state, it cannot fire. To move and shoot, you must hold the "walk" key. While standing still, a powerful shield is created around you which can hold off substantial amounts of enemy fire. While a Droideka's shield is powered up, the energy can detonate grenades and other explosives that come in contact with it.
Weapons and Abilities

Allows you to maneuver and aim better when firing.
Your overall firing rate and ammo regeneration rate.
The ability to discharge a large amount of shield energy in a shockwave that pushes enemies away from the Droideka and knocks them down.
While rolling it moves much faster than any other class.
Droidekas are extremely vulnerable to an ARC Trooper's pulse grenades. While subject to the effects of a pulse nade, the droideka cannot fire, leaving it defenceless. The droidekas have to stand still and not rolling to be able to recharge it's weapon after being hit by pulse grenades.
