Matt The Radar Tech Makes His Way To Star Wars Battlefront II

Its been, objectively, almost a decade since SNL has been at the top of its game, but now that the show is back in the lime light, a popular sketch may be soon considered “canon” in the Star Wars Universe.

Adam Driver appeared in an Undercover Boss sketch as Kylo Ren, infiltrating Star Killer Base to find out what the crew really think of him during his hosting gig last year. The sketch became so popular that now you can take his “Matt the Radar Tech” character into the massively popular Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Star Wars HQ has released footage of the orange vest’ed, blonde haired Kylo Ren as Matt tearing his way through enemies on different maps.

If you want to take Matt into action yourself, you can can get the mod  from GameTSF here, and the Fire Saber one from DeathsStrokeYT at this link. Check out the reveal video below.
