CE Droids are subject to this effect. All Non-unique droid followers within 6 squares gain careful shot +4.
 
The super battle droid commander is a very good piece in any droid based seperatise squad. It is one of the main trinity pieces that can give your droids a +12 attack boost. most people will go with the battle droid officer instead of this piece just pecause it does what this piece does but a little better. It gives all droids +4 attack boardwide. The only Difference between these two pieces is how they act in combat. This character can acually deal damage with the rest of the squad. With synchronized fire you can get a much better chance of hitting.
 
100   2/5    He takes up too many points for a droid based squade in this format. Seperatist droid don't really work in this point range.
 
150   4/5   this is where they really shine. you can get a nice amount of droids in and will be doing damage like crazy.
 
200   5/5    Must for a droid squad in 200.

Synchronized fire (Characters who combine fire with this character grant +6 instead of +4)

CE: Non-unique droids within 6 squares gain careful shot +4

Today's piece is a nice addition to any droid squad.  .His stats are pretty average for a 20ish point commander.  His attack is a bit lower, but he has base 30 DAM and the sync fire can also be nice.  You also have the +4 from the Battle Droid Officer who basically will make him a +7, so not bad.

His CE is why you will bring him to the party, though.  If they don't move he can add another +4 to the attack of nearby droids.  On top of the BDO, this gives most droids a very hefty attack for some nice damage. On top of being on the cheap side, you can decide if you want to bring him in through any form of reserves or reinforcements, or just bring him in normally.

100pts: Droids don't work very well here because they are notoriously low on DEF and HP.

150:  Here you can bring in some nice droids, but unfortunately non of the huges (see my last Ask the Dragon).  That still leaves you crabs, destroyers, Dwarf Spider Droids, ect.  He is worth bringing to any droid ruckus.

200pts: Here you can fit him in nicely, but you may have to choose between him and Thursday's piece.  For his cost he is a must for any droid squad.  He even has decent damage output for a commander.
