Hilarious Mod Puts Adam Driver's Matt The Radar Technician In Star Wars Battlefront 2

Mods are always a great way to spice up a game, especially when it begins to get a bit stale. In the case of Star Wars: Battlefront 2, though, the game hasn't been out for long but some people are already making mods based on some hilarious memes and for joking effect, sort of like putting Saturday Night Live's Matt The Radar Technician into the game.

The mod was showcased on the YouTube channel Star Wars HQ, and it's based on a Saturday Night Live skit for Star Wars Undercover Boss, taking place at the Starkiller Base. It features Adam Driver reprising his role as Kylo Ren in a rather hilarious Star Wars rendition of the popular hit TV show, Undercover Boss.

Modders thought it would be a pretty hilarious idea to take Adam Driver's Undercover Boss depiction of Matt the radar technician, and make him playable in Star Wars: Battlefront 2.

The character is still based on Adam Driver's Kylo Ren model in the game, but instead of wearing the traditional black cloak and cape, he has on an imperial officer's suit, but with a technician's harness that happens to be orange.

The mod was originally created by GameTsFe, and the mod can be downloaded from over on Nexus Mods. It comes in two different versions, including a single-player version that replaces the standard Kylo Ren hero with the Matt skin. The multiplayer version replaces the officer with the Matt skin. The replacements also apply to both the masked and unmasked versions of Kylo Ren, which are based on his appearance in The Last Jedi.

GameTsFe also took the opportunity to give Kylo Ren two new abilities, Force Choke and Force Push, enabling him to knock foes off their feet and to be able to choke them, as seen in the video above.

To help the mod pop even more, Star Wars HQ also applied a special fire ember mod to Kylo Ren's lightsaber, so that as he strikes things we see small sparks of embers pop off the saber and sparkle in the air.

The mods are popping up a lot faster this time around for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 compared to the original game that came out back in 2015. The modders had to take some extra time to figure out the encryption for DICE's 2015 release, and that resulted in requiring more time to figure out how the file systems worked and create mods for the game.

Thankfully, modders didn't have to repeat those steps with the sequel, and so they've been able to pump out new mods for Star Wars: Battlefront 2 rather quickly, like the one featuring Matt the radar technician from the Saturday Night Live skit. The mods are obviously only available for the PC version of the game, so console gamers are sadly out of luck.
