Remember that absolutely hilarious 2016 Saturday Night Live skit where Kylo Ren went undercover as “Matt” the radar technician in a fake episode of Undercover Boss? Well, if you don’t remember (or never saw it) please check it out before reading on because it is great. It’s also the only way you can fully relish the fantastic news that SNL’s Kylo Ren as “Matt the radar technician” is now a playable character in Star Wars Battlefront 2.

It isn’t easy to be the commander of the First Order, a regime dedicated to dominating the universe, and Kylo knows it. “You get so caught up in restoring the galaxy to its rightful state, that you miss what’s going on behind the scenes,” boss Kylo explains in the skit. His undercover disguise is supposed to allow him to have some real talk with some real folks—and it does. He connects with employees. Learns that the work they do is valuable and hard. He even offers condolences for murdering the son of an employee by personally delivering a card.

In short, Kylo Ren as Matt the radar technician is a more sensitive version of himself. Well, except for the fact that he murders personnel for simply touching him and angrily throws a dangerous lightsaber at a wall. It’s no surprise this hilarious SNL character inspired a developer to take him into the gaming world.

To play as “Matt,” head over to NexusMods and download the mod. The character comes equipped with Matt’s signature orange work belt, a blonde wig, and that notorious lightsaber. It even quotes the skit while you’re battling on the Starkiller Base. Sadly, the character mod will only work in the arcade and competitive modes of the PC version of Star Wars Battlefront 2. (Sorry, PS4 and Xbox One players).
