The MER-P droids were designed with a quadrupedal, multijointed locomotion system that makes them appear to most as small, crude looking copies of a skinny nexu. Because the MER-P wasn't expected to face intense defense, armour & shielding were omitted from the design in order to reduce production cost. This unfortunately means that a single hit from most weapons will render the MER-P inoperative. Much of the MER-P's mass is taken up by a single, surprisingly powerful blaster rifle. Due to the fact that the MER-P was more or less built around the rifle, it is only able to fire in the direction that it is facing. The MER-P droids are programmed to make use of any available cover, as well as coordinating fire with other nearby MER-P droids. The MER-P droids communicate with others nearby using bursts of short range comm transmissions. Unfortunately this may betray their presence before they have time to spring their attack if the target is using their commlinks (the signals manifest as static) or are using sensors scanning for comm transmissions.
