Generic Mod II is a Keen 2 mod by Levellord released in 2005. It is notable for featuring not Keen but an original character called 'jetboy' originally created by another Keen fan. The player is given an unusual gameplay mechanic, being able to fly through the air for any distance with some control by using a jetpack.

Although consisting of more than one level this mod is usually considered a one-level mod as the focus in a single, rather large, level.
