PAYDAY 2: Update 202

+ + + + +
Happy Heisty Year!

The holiday event is now over and the XP event bonus on the Christmas-themed heists are no longer available. The special Christmas decorated heists are back to normal and the same goes for all the holiday versions of certain sounds and the main menu.

All content that was released in the last update will stay in the game. If you did not get around to picking up all the presents in the Mexican heists to unlock the Mega Sangres mask, Fear not, you can still get a hold of the mask. The presents won’t go away.

A New Face

Of course, we are on top of recent news, so if you want to heist the White House in style, you’ll have a brand new mask to wear as you sneak your way through the halls or storm the building in true patriotic style. Some may say Mr. 46 has changed a lot between the time he posed for his portrait and when the mask was made. Some may say they are not even the same person. But most would agree, you don’t want to see someone entering a bank with a smile like that… and a mini-gun.

Crime Spree

We want to start the year off with some fun new heisting. Start up a new crime spree and you’ll find that 6 new heists have been made available in the rotation.

  • Breaking Feds
  • Shacklethorne Auction
  • Boiling Point
  • San Martín Bank
  • The Alesso Heist
  • Breakfast in Tijuana

Stay tuned for more weapons, heists, and other good stuff to come later this year. The gang is back from vacation and they are ready for a fight.

Here’s to yet another year of wearing masks and vinyl gloves in public.
OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.
