Calling all those who are fans of both Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Tiger King. Yes, that’s not a typo. There’s a new Star Wars Battlefront 2 Mod that reskins Han Solo as the infamous Joe Exotic from Netflix’s hit show.
Tiger King made our list of the biggest Netflix exclusives in 2020 and Joe Exotic’s popularity has skyrocketed accordingly. While a controversial figure amongst viewers, there’s no doubt that he’s made it into this year’s pop culture lexicon, so this Star Wars Battlefront 2 mod doesn’t come completely out of left field.
This mod is currently available on Nexus Mods, and it reskins the in-game Han Solo model to look just like Joe Exotic. We’re talking hairstyle changes, fashion faux pas, and more. Users who have downloaded the mod have been leaving comments requesting a Carol Baskin skin for another Star Wars Battlefront 2 character, but it doesn’t look like the original creator has delivered on that particular front.

The most popular mods for Star Wars Battlefront 2 now appear to be related to lightsabers and clone variations, but this Tiger King reskin has recently jumped to eighth place on the popularity list for now. It remains to be seen if Joe Exotic’s appeal will have any longevity for those wanting to do battle on Tatooine but for now, it’s a light-hearted addition to EA’s multiplayer space opera action shooter.
For those who haven’t kept up with the title in a while, the latest set of updates to Star Wars Battlefront 2 have been the original trilogy updates, adding new locations from the same set of movies as well Palpatine and Chewbecca as playable heroes in select game modes.
