Requires Payday 2 (base game) to use this DLC
PAYDAY 2 is an action-packed, four-player co-op shooter that once again lets gamers don the masks of the original PAYDAY crew - Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains - as they descend on Washington D.C. for an epic crime spree.
The ARMORED TRANSPORT DLC is the first DLC pack for PAYDAY 2 and lets players do every heisters dream – robbing armored transports, full of valuables, right in the middle of Washington D.C.
Up to four friends co-operate on the heists, and as the crew progresses they have a chance to unlock an even more rewarding job – doing a classic train robbery. New weapons, weapon modifications, masks, patterns and materials have been added to let players continue to build and customize their own guns and gear.
2 new heists spread over 6 locations – The players are offered two new heists spread over six different locations. Hit the armored transports downtown, in parks, underpasses, crossroads and in the harbor area of D.C. If the player is lucky, the robberies will lead to an even bigger reward – doing a train robbery to secure a valuable military prototype.
3 new weapons of choice – players can now enjoy three new weapons of mass heisting. For the stealth artist we have the charming Gruber Kurz pistol, Tanks will enjoy the agile Commando 553 Assault rifle and only a lunatic could love the classic Swedish K SMG. Together with over a dozen new weapon modifications, everyone will have something to play with.
4 new masks, patterns and materials – Four new masks are added to the game, themed around four of the most famous American presidents. Combined with the all-new American themed patterns and materials, players will be able to cook up some pretty awesome looking mask designs. Bodhi would be proud.
New achievements, free community mask and more – A dozen of new achievements are added for players to take care of. Those that join the Official PAYDAY 2 group on Steam will also receive another bonus item in the shape of a new hockey mask – inspired from one of the best Heist flicks of all time. For those that work hard while robbing the armored transports, a curious Easter egg can be found.
The right choice for a good robberMatlair | Jan. 20, 2014 | See all Matlair's reviews »
The missions this DLC adds to Payday 2, inspired by the 1995's movie "Heat", are fast paced and very enjoyable - stop the armored trucks, crack them open, get everything that's inside and make a quick getaway. The only con is that you even get one more mission, which you can play only by grinding the Armored Transport missions and hoping to get Blueprints, which will activate the mission. Despite that, it's still a nice addition to an already awesome game.

Some say Payday 2 is the best co-operative game ever made. Although I am not so hyped about it, I still consider it great, possibly one of the best. If you are hungry for more, the Armored Transport DLC offers more of the same, but don't you think it's any kind of boring or monotoneous! It's as good as the base game and simply adds more of everything. You want new heists? Sure, it has them. New achievements? Check. New masks and designs? Sure, check again. You want new weapons? Of course they're there. So while the addon is not surprising in any way, I think it's a good thing because the game is simply build of good things, so adding more of them simply makes it even better and more replayable.

Pretty much more of the same, but that's no bad thing- if you thoroughly enjoy(ed) the original Payday 2 experience you will be right at home here.
Added in the downloadable content are extra heists, more weapons,masks, materials and achievements for those achievement fanatics.
This game is enjoyable as a four player co-op, similar to games such as Left 4 Dead- you can really get your criminal mind on.
If it ain't broke, do not fix it.
