With Commander Cody and his clones, he's supposed to immobilize the proton guns. But TX-20, the commander of the droids, is already waiting for the republic troups and uses the residents as human shields.
The clones Boil and Waxer have some more screentime in the Director's Cut and TX-20 tries to check his calculations. The other differences are small extensions, just like in other episodes.
