A brand new Star Wars Battlefront 2 Baby Yoda mod recently surfaced online, thanks to one particularly cheeky modder.
A recent report from PC Gamer draws attention to the work of Nanobuds, the Disney-defying modder who ensured everybody’s favourite baby green alien got his fair share of playtime in Star Wars Battlefront 2. And let’s be real – if you’re playing as Baby Yoda, nobody is going to have the heart to shoot you with space lasers or whatever.
Nanobuds posted their original model for Baby Yoda over on Reddit a few months ago, which naturally raked in a boatload of upvotes. You can check it out below.
Naturally, Baby Yoda wasn’t added as part of Nanobuds’ first space rodeo. Prior to the addition of the wrinkly backwards-talker, the modder added a hooded version of Rey, Darth Maul with cyborg legs, a battle-damaged Darth Vader, and even Sans from Undertale.
“I can’t believe Sans killed Yoda,” Nanobuds writes on Nexus Mods. “Should be MP safe.”
You can download Baby Yoda as a playable character from the Nexus Mods page linked above. The mod works by manipulating the code so Baby Yoda replaces BB8 in-game.
“I started this as a joke mod but it ended up being pretty cool,” Nanobuds writes in the Baby Yoda mod description. “He looks wacky on the front end – there is nothing I can do about this. I can’t change the animations to make BB8’s arm or wire go away. Everything is fine in-game though.”
In case you were curious about how he looks in-game, here’s Baby Yoda in a metal crib thing on Endor.
