Star Wars: Battlefront 2 modder Nanobuds has been hard at work bringing Baby Yoda into the game as a playable character (via PCGamesN).

Baby Yoda isn’t baby Yoda. In The Mandalorian, the bounty hunter stumbles upon the youngling in one of their contracts and chooses not to kill the child, against their orders. The baby is exceptionally strong with The Force, which is helpful and unhelpful at the best of times, and the Mandalorian becomes fond of them in a silly but sweet dynamic. The internet loves Baby Yoda, and now Star Wars: Battlefront 2 players will soon be able to place the little darling in the line of fire. 

Nanobuds published a work-in-progress screenshot of Baby Yoda in the game, and the character is adopting one of Yoda’s default poses. The baby has the big ears and diminutive form, but the modder is still working on their wide-eyed, wondrous look. And, the baby is a luminous green. There isn’t a download link yet but Nanobuds has also released a mutilated Darth Vader mod and a Sans Undertale mod for Battlefront 2

One commenter has suggested adding Oggdo Bogdo to Battlefront’s roster, a boss from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The toad is tremendously difficult to beat with erratic attacks and a scarily long tongue to catch Cal. User N1cknamed sums it up succinctly: “Oggdo bogdo would 1-hit everyone but would be balanced by the mere fact that he can't fit through any door.”

Respawn’s Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is good. Josh praised it as an “interstellar back garden—a replayable patch of pathways and secrets that yields the thrill of alien worlds and warms them through with familiarity.” Shame about the bugs, though. Seems Oggdo Bogdo was too preoccupied gobbling Jedi to eat those and make for a much smoother gameplay experience. 

Star Wars: Battlefront 2 is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
