Something beyond the standard astromech droid, R2-D2 is a clever mechanic and pilot's aid, boasting an impressive array of special tools. He formed an unlikely friendship with the protocol droid C-3PO and became a hero to the Rebels.
R2-D2 was introduced in version 1.0 of the game.
R2-D2 unlocks one scene. As a Rebel, he is actively chased off of any Imperial level.
