HK-51 snipes litterbugs.
"Attention please. Evasion behavior consistent with malcompliant defendant. Ground protection team alert. Code: isolate, expose, administer."

"Alert. Non-standard exogen activity detected. Execute containment procedure and report."

Deleting troublemakers vs liquidating undesirables. Frankly I'd love to have, "eliminating meatbags".

As others have pointed out, that is because HK-51 is NOT HK-47. 47 was specifically programmed (by Revan iirc) to use the term 'meatbag'. Two totally different droids.

Yeah and they are lazy. That is not what the word means. And they aren't doing it on purpose, they just don't understand what irony is.

Yup, It was a term that HK-47 used on his own to describe Darth Malak and Revan liked the term so he programed him to use it. Since Revan did not have a hand in HK-51, he does not say it.

well "meatbag" is supposed to be a unique and iconic statement by HK-47 (being specially programmed in by Revan). the HK-50s in KOTOR2 used "organics" precisely for this reason (much to HK-47s chagrin)

Unless HK-51 was programmed by HK-47, it makes no sense for the 51s to say "meatbags"

I'll apologize for Alanis, Celine and Bieber, but not Shatner.

Actually, I like the "troublemakers" lines from Republic HK51 (but then, I do not have Imperial one yet).
I never really wanted for meatbags, as that is simply HK47-specific line that should not be overused.
