Count Dooku has arrived in Star Wars Battlefront II, bringing with him his lethal lightsaber expertise and Dark Side Force powers. But modders have determined that Christopher Lee’s character appears a bit traditionally inaccurate together with his arms and legs hooked up, so that they’ve pulled an Anakin and eliminated them.
As you’ll little question recall, Anakin Skywalker has a last confrontation with Dooku in one of many first scenes of Revenge of the Sith. Anakin severs Dooku’s arms, and on the behest of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, he decapitates the fallen Jedi.
That’s the final we see of Dooku within the main-line movies, but it surely appears Count Dooku’s story doesn’t have to finish there. Now you possibly can play as “Revenge of the Sith Dooku” with a helpful little Battlefront II mod.
It does simply what it says on the tin – Christopher Lee’s head has been eliminated, alongside together with his arms. The mod doesn’t add any cauterized stumps or something, so that you’re left with Dooku’s costume, presumably animated by one of many Christmas ghosts Lee reads about on the BBC.
You’ve bought two fashions to select from with this mod – one with and one with out Dooku’s distinctive lightsaber. I’m undecided which one is funnier – and the lightsaber features the identical means in each, seen or not – however right here’s a video that exhibits the non-lightsaber model in motion:
It really appears cool, in a bizarre Headless Horseman type of means – the empty costume jumps round, zorching enemy troopers with Force lightning, and infrequently barks out nonsense about “demonstrations.”

I’m undecided if Headless Dooku is sort of nearly as good as Breast Cancer Awareness Vader, but it surely’s shut.
Head over to NexusMods to obtain Revenge of the Sith Dooku. Next month, Battlefront II is getting a new game mode that’s seemingly a nod to DICE’s Titan mode from Battlefield 2142. Those defenders will likely be in for an actual shock when Count Dooku exhibits as much as take over their capital ship with out his head.
