“Traitor!” So bellowed a baton-wielding First Order stormtrooper, and the rest is Internet meme history.
First glimpsed in a teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, this mystery trooper — who confronts a lightsaber-brandishing Finn — has inspired countless memes, fan art, and Twitter jokes. He’s been lovingly dubbed TR-8R (because, well, why not?), but there’s more to this bucket head than fleeting viral popularity.
His name is FN-2199. But his friends call him “Nines.” As detailed in Greg Rucka’s excellent book Before the Awakening, Nines trained and served on a squad with Finn (then FN-2187) in the First Order. That explains why he seems just a little extra angry upon seeing Finn during the attack on Maz’s Castle.
There’s a reason that Nines gets to use an awesome weapon (which is called a Z6 baton). He’s riot control, and part of an elite squad that enforces order or squashes uprisings. While their weapons are non-lethal in theory, the Z6 can definitely cause harm or kill an opponent when used with brute force. If a lightsaber can’t cut it, you know it ain’t good news.

Hot Toys MMS346 Star Wars: The Force Awakens 1/6th scale First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper Collectible Figure specially features: Authentic and detailed likeness of the First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper as seen in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". The figure is approximately 30 cm tall and the base body has over 30 points of articulation. Unfortunately, the tightness of the body glove / black under-suit greatly restricts the figure's movements, especially in the legs. He is equipped with his Z6 Riot Control Baton and betaplast riot shield. The Sonn-Blas F-11D Blaster Rifle is attached to his right leg via magnets. The baton can be attached as well.

Z6 Riot Control Baton has a magnetic grip, can be spun in combat and delivers a stunning shock.
