PAYDAY 2: Silk Road Update

+ + + + +
Hello Heisters!

It’s time to get back in the van and kick some ass. We here at OVERKILL have something wonderful for you. A big update to make up for the recent year of silence. We bring more content and fixes to the game we all love. So suit up and join the fray as we once again put on our masks; let’s head south of the border to hunt murkies.

Outfits system

A new cosmetic Outfits system is introduced in PAYDAY 2 with this DLC. In addition to selecting a mask of their choice, players can now also select an Outfit from a selection in their inventory. Outfits are clothes that the character wears below the neck and are selected in the same screen as armor.

Improved UI

The general UI and menus have been given an overhaul and streamlined to make things more efficient and easier to navigate. This also, of course, includes added elements for managing the new outfits system.


In addition to the outfits system itself, the following outfits are made available in the Silk Road update:
Silk Road update (free) outfits:

  • Tactical BDU
  • Raincoat
  • Scrubs
  • Winter Camo Parka
  • Tuxedo
  • Murkywater Uniform

Community Safe 8

Alongside the update, a new community safe is added to the drop pool. The safe contains 16 new weapon skins from the Steam workshop to customize your loadout with. It will have the same drop chance as all other community safes.

Border Crossing Heist DLC

The Payday Gang’s enemies, Murkywater and the Dentist, are moving money and illicit merchandise from the US to Mexico through a tunnel across the border. The Gang gets wind of this and formulates a plan. While some Payday Gang members are off rescuing Bain, others will travel to Arizona to hit Murkywater and the Dentist.

Tailor Pack 1 DLC

Tailor Pack 1 DLC outfits (each of these has 5 color variations, for a total of 20 outfits):

  • The Showman
  • The Casual Formal
  • The Sunny Rico
  • The Classic

Cartel Optics Mod Pack DLC

The Cartel Optics Mod Pack DLC includes 10 new weapon mods to help you customize and improve the performance of your weapons in combat. The central theme for this mod pack is optics and sights.
Mods included:

  • 3 Sights
  • 2 Pistol Sights
  • 2 Optics Gadgets
  • 1 Grip
  • 1 Muzzle Brake
  • 1 Compensator
