Crosshair: "If I wanted you dead, you would be. Not that it wouldn't be justified. You betrayed everything we stood for. And for what? The Republic?"
Hunter: "We're loyal to each other. Not some empire."
Crosshair: "You weren't loyal to me. I was one of you. You may have forgotten, but I haven't."
―Crosshair admitting his bitterness to Hunter for being left behind by his old team.

The clone commander Crosshair (birth number CT-9904) is a minor character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the secondary antagonist from Star Wars: The Bad Batch. As a soldier of the Republic's Grand Army, Crosshair was part of the elite team of Clone Force 99 composed exclusively of defective clones like himself and specialized in dangerous missions.

Upon activation of Order 66, Crosshair has been affected by the secret programming contained in his inhibitor chip like the rest of the regular Clone Troopers, subsequently making him a dedicated and ruthless soldier of the newly formed Galactic Empire. However, his team denies the Empire and refuses to follow him, leading the once tight-knit former brothers in arms to become enemies.



Hunter: "Crosshair, forget the Empire. This isn't you. It's your inhibitor chip. We can help you."
Crosshair: "Wrong. I had my chip removed a long time ago. [...] This is who I am."
―Crosshair revealing that he no longer has an Inhibitor Chip despite being still loyal to the Empire.

Crosshair is known to be a cold, unyielding, contemptuous, pessimistic, and very cynical individual. Like the rest of the Bad Batch, following orders is not his forte. He is also not the most sociable of the Clone Force 99, especially towards the regular clone troopers whom he mockingly calls '' Regs '' and for whom he holds no esteem. His sense of humor is quite dry, consisting of quite demeaning jokes. Despite everything, he is faithfully devoted to his team.

After Order 66, Crosshair's personality remained broadly the same as before but he had now become subject to the orders implanted in his chip like executed the Jedi regardless of where those orders came from. He also did not hesitate to reprimand Hunter for disobeying the extermination order and was also exasperated that his leader was completely reneging on these directives. Following the creation of the Empire, Crosshair became a staunch supporter and the effects of his flea made him unmistakably more ruthless, continuing to blindly follow Empire orders such as the extermination of insurgents despite the opposition from his teammates. Regardless, he still had loyalty to his team, though he disapproved of their opposition to the Empire.

Following Tarkin's amplification of his chip, Crosshair's loyalty to the Empire grew complete, to the point that he attempted to kill his former teammates in cold blood when they fled Kamino, seeing them as purely traitors. As commander of imperious elite soldiers, Crosshair showed more of his ruthless nature, executing all those who had no use to the Empire as well as those who refused to follow orders. When he crossed paths with the Bad Batch again, Crosshair mocked their situation while continuing to call them traitors to the Empire and even dared to order Omega to be targeted by his troops, despite being a child.

Although his chip was taken away from him after his accident on Bracca, Crosshair remained loyal to the Empire but he had presumably returned to an almost similar state of mind before the amplification. Instead of trying to kill his brothers in arms again, he offered them a chance to join the Empire on his side to be a team again, while admitting the resentment he felt at respect them for leaving him behind when they fled Kamino without him. He also showed he had no attachment to his new team, killing them without any hesitation when they refused to drop their weapons. When Bad Batch once again denied the Empire, Crosshair was sick of it. However, it turned out that Crosshair still had some sense of honor, once again fighting alongside his brothers to survive the onslaught of the Training Droids and later saving Omega from drowning by repayment.

After surviving the collapse of Tipoca City, Crosshair chose to stay with the Empire despite being left for dead, refusing his brothers' offer to join them again. His personal feelings for Bad Batch, however, seem to have become ambiguous, as he seemed to experience some sadness afterwards.


  • Superior Eyesight: Due to his genetic mutation, Crosshair possesses a eyesight surpassing most sentient beings.
  • Expert Hand-to-Hand Combatant: As a clone trooper, Crosshair is highly skilled in melee combat. It turned out to be a match for Hunter although he ended up losing to him.
  • Expert Tactician/Leadership: Crosshair is smart enough to lead multiple troops with major success. On two occasions, he succeeded in anticipating the plans of Tech which is nevertheless endowed with a superior intelligence.
  • Expert Marksman/Sniper: Crosshair is not only a blaster expert but also a skilled sniper. His improved eyesight allows him to hit targets several miles away with precision.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

In the final year of the Clone Wars, the Bad Batch was sent to Anaxes to support the Republican forces. During a patrol flight, Crosshair and Jesse began to have tension between them when their Assault Gunship was taken down by the battle droids. While Cody is injured, the Bad Batch manages to defeat the entire Separatist Patrol using their unorthodox tactics. After nightfall, new feuds between normal and deviant clones began until Hunter put an end to them by reminding them that they were all on the same team, allowing them the next day to storm the Cyber Center.

Afterward, the Bad Batch accompanied the captain Rex and Anakin Skywalker during the mission on Skako Minor to save the long-dead suspected clone trooper, Echo. Before entering Purkoll Town, Crosshair expressed his doubts about the mission which could be a trap, while openly stating that he would have left Echo for dead since it is just another "reg", pushing Rex to hit him angrily. The team then made their way through Purkoll's security forces and eventually found an Echo transforming into a cyborg before escaping.

With Echo at their side, the Republican forces launched a direct assault on Admiral Trench's forces, although the Bad Batch remained wary of the cyborg clone. In the end, Echo always turns out to be on the right side and following the victory of the Republic, he is welcomed as a member of the Bad Batch due to now also being a deviant clone. Before leaving, the Bad Batch greeted Rex, showing that the captain had earned their respect.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch

Deployed on Kaller, the Bad Batch came to the aid of general Depa Bilaba and her padawan Caleb Dume. Soon after, Palpatine activated Order 66, leading the clone troopers to execute Bilaba as Bad Batch and Caleb watched bemusedly and quickly fled into the forest after that. Hunter and Crosshair go in search of the Padawan but when he finds him, Crosshair tries to shoot him down against Hunter's advice. Crosshair simply claimed to follow the order, which Hunter disputed. Crosshair didn't seem to care about Hunter's advice while repeating the words "Good soldiers follow order". The duo once again find Caleb and Crosshair continues to try to bring him down until he is knocked unconscious against a tree. Upon awakening, Hunter tells him that he knocked Caleb down to death in the ravine without Crosshair really being convinced.

Returning to Kamino, Crosshair questions Hunter on his certainty that the padawan is indeed dead since he has not checked. Once in Tipoca City, the team learned of Grievous' death and therefore the end of the Clone Wars before they took their leave. Back in their personal quarters, Crosshair reveals to the others that Hunter willfully let Caleb escape. Hunter claims to be uncomfortable with orders to eliminate their superior, to which Crosshair replied that the orders are the orders, just so Hunter replied "since when", much to Crosshair's annoyance. The Bad Batch then went to now Emperor Palpatine's announcement about the Republic's transformation into the Galactic Empire. While others are uncomfortable with these changes, Crosshair doesn't find it making a difference.



  • Crosshair fond of chewing on toothpicks is reminiscent of Cad Bane, another Star Wars person who also shares this attribute.
  • According to Tech, Crosshair is unable to change his cynical nature.
  • Crosshair's voice is more sour than the other clones.
  • Many fans believe Crosshair will go through a redemption arc in season 2.
  • Crosshair joining the Empire was foreshadowed in the trailers when there was little screen time of him.
