PAYDAY2: VR Beta 1.4 and Hotfix 168.1

+ + + + +

Hotfix 168.1 and VR Beta 1.4

We are really happy to see how well our latest addition to CrimeNet, the Reservoir Dogs Heist, has been received. We saw a few issues reported on the forums and we quickly got to work on ironing out the wrinkles.

We also bring an update to the VR Beta today. Jump in and have a blast with some grenade launchers and a few new levels. We are adding the new level here as well so that you can do some classical heisting with modern tech. Finally we are also including some updated animations for grenade launchers, shotguns and revolvers.

As some might have seen on our twitter we are bringing direct movement to PAYDAY 2 VR. You can now choose to play with either Dash + Direct movement or Dash only. With this update we also updated the How to play PAYDAY 2 VR (Version 2) thread on our steam forum. It will now reflect the new movement system and better represent both HTC Vive and Oculus Rift controllers.

One thing that we missed to mention in yesterday’s changelog is that since the Cursed Kill Room and Safehouse Nightmare will now be permanently available under Event heists in the contract broker they have also been added as requirements to the following achievements:

  • Criminal Origins
  • Tough Act to Follow
  • Shit Just Got Real
  • Completely OVERKILL!
  • Master of Mayhem
  • OVERKILL Salutes You!
  • One More Down, No More To Go
  • Holiday Special
  • This is Not Normal? Is It?
  • Fever Dream
  • Marked in the Calendar
  • The Heisters Day Out
  • Expanded Reality
  • And Now for Something Completely Different

Time to heist like a smooth criminal.
OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.
