Go on a Baby Yoda murder rampage with this Star Wars Battlefront 2 mod

Problem child.

It's not easy being green, so can you blame Baby Yoda for wanting to let off steam on some stormtroopers once in a while?

As spotted by PC Gamer, the Baby Yoda mod (which was first teased back in November) has now been publicly released, meaning anyone can take The Child for a drive in Star Wars Battlefront 2. It works as a reskin of BB-8, so you can roll around killing imps left, right and centre. Serves those stormtroopers right for hitting him.

As explained by nanobuds, it's not entirely perfect: BB-8's arm and wires couldn't be removed, and the latter occasionally fly out of Baby Yoda's space pram. It also leads to a rather strange animation where the pod spins around and slices all surrounding enemies. Which, to be honest, looks kind of terrifying.

Despite this, it's still an amusing and well-made mod, which nanobuds says is also online compatible. You can find it over on Nexus Mods if you want to give it a try.


Given the amount of love shown online for Baby Yoda following The Mandalorian's release in November (in America, anyway), you probably won't be surprised to learn this isn't the only Baby Yoda mod out there. A number also appeared for Minecraft, such as this Baby Yoda which force-lifts enemy mobs and can be tamed with a piping hot bowl of stew. Forget midi-chlorians: I think this is the true source of The Child's souperpowers.
