Star Wars Battlefront II’s New Fan Mod Lets You Play as SNL’s Matt the Technician
Matt the Radar Technician heard there was a spot open in Star Wars Battlefront II. He also heard Kylo Ren is shredded.
Modding continues to bring your wildest dreams to life. Sure, mods add new features and stories to games like Fallout 4 and other Bethesda titles, but sometimes mods let you do absurd things like changing all the dragons in Skyrim into Thomas the Tank Engine. But recently, modders gave us the ability to be Matt the Technician from the Undercover Boss skit from SNL.
If it wasn’t obvious, Matt the Technician is actually Kylo Ren, or more specifically, he’s Adam Diver poking fun at Kylo Ren. In the skit, Kylo Ren goes undercover on Starkiller Base to get a read on his employees when their boss isn’t around. He hears some employees bad-mouthing Kylo Ren, so he tells them that Kylo has an “awesome lightsaber” and that he “heard he was shredded.”
The skit was a huge hit after The Force Awakens debuted, and the mod by Nexus community members GameTSF and ricksterlol alters the Unmasked Kylo Ren skin, adding Matt the Technician’s blonde wig and uniform. If only he talked his “boss” up in-game as well; although, given the nature of modding, that’s not impossible.
Unfortunately, being a mostly online title, the mod only works in arcade mode, and it’s only available on PC. It is, however, easily accessible on Nexus mods here.
Star Wars Battlefront II is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC – you can check out a video of the mod below via DarthVaderModding on YouTube:
