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 DC for an epic crime spree.
The new CRIMENET network offers a huge range of dynamic contracts, and players are free to choose anything from small-time convenience store hits or kidnappings, to big league cyber-crime or emptying out major bank vaults for that epic PAYDAY. While in DC, why not participate in the local community, and run a few political errands?
Up to four friends co-operate on the hits, and as the crew progresses the jobs become bigger, better and more rewarding. Along with earning more money and becoming a legendary criminal comes a new character customization and crafting system that lets crews build and customize their own guns and gear.
Rob Banks with Friends:
Players must choose their crew carefully, because when the job goes down they will need the right mix of skills on their side.
The dynamic contract database lets gamers pick and choose from available jobs by connecting with local contacts such as Vlad the Ukrainian, shady politician "The Elephant", and South American drug trafficker Hector, all with their own agenda and best interests in mind.
PAYDAY gun play and mechanics on a new level:
firing weapons and zip tying civilians never felt so good.
No heist ever plays out the same way twice. Every single scenario has random geometry or even rare events.
Choose Your Skills:
As players progress they can invest in any of four special Skill Trees: the Mastermind, the Enforcer, the Ghost and the Technician. Each features a deep customization tree of associated skills and equipment to master, and they can be mixed and matched to create the ultimate heister.
More Masks than Ever:
PAYDAY 2 features a completely new mask system, giving players the ability to craft their own unique mask together with a pattern and a color combination.
Weapons and Modifications:
A brand new arsenal for the serious heister, covering everything from sniper and assault rifles to compact PDWs and SMGs. Once you've settled for a favorite, you can modify it with optics, suppressors, fore grips, reticles, barrels, frames, stocks, all of which will affect the performance of your weapon. There are also purely aesthetic enhancements - why not go for the drug lord look with polished walnut grips for your nine?
Play It Your Way:
Each job allows for multiple approaches, such as slow and stealthy ambushes, to running in guns blazing. Hit the target any way you want, and watch as the heist unfolds accordingly.
The best bank robbing, meth cooking and drill fixing on there.linguofu | Sept. 24, 2014 | See all linguofu's reviews »
This game is a master piece developed by Overkill Software. This game offers a wide range of play style from run and gun into a bank or be a sneaky ninja stealth your way through your pay day.
This game has 4 different skill trees from a supportive Master Mind; boosting your team's skill, survival ability and reviving team mates at a range by shouting "Get the F* up". Or you might want to be a tanky gunner, using heavy weapons and carry extra ammo for your friends. If this doesn't please you, chose Ghost help you with your movement, bagging and open doors with your ECMs. Last skill tree is Tech, upgrading drill to improve their efficiency, setting up sentries and planting trip mines.
Make and create your own personal mask with their awesome mask customization system.Mask is not the only thing you can modify, you can now also make each and every one weapon to fit your play style.
This game is updated regularly and never forgotten by Overkill Software, so you don't have to worry about a game with out of date content.
PS:This game is the best drill fixing, meth cooking,lock picking and bag bagging sim you can ever find on the market.
I would 100% recommend this game for you and your friends! ... ... Why are you still reading this? Buy it now! And join the CrimeNet!
Great game in co-op only.Snotnarok | Sept. 20, 2014 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
This game is really really fun, it's a co-op shooter with classes that actually feel different. Each level gains you points to spend into class tress that are easy to understand and are helpful along the way. Enforcers can drop ammo bags and dishout more damage with shotguns while masterminds can control the heists with their voice, telling civilians to help them out, reviving allies from a distance and even getting enemies to cuff themselves to use in hostage trades. There's more classes but...I feel that gives a good idea what to expect.
Gameplay is varied, it's not just a horde mode or stealth game (though it can be both of those too). You look over a map and jobs appear over it, when you spot one you like on a difficulty you want you grab and go. You can rob a bank, you can make raid a meth house and ..make meth while the house is being assaulted, rob jewelry stores, move drugs. Each person will find roles, you'll need to drill safes, saw or pick locks, or hell use C4 if you're speced to do that. You need to move bags individually which REALLY makes the game get tense as the police are on you if you're under assault and they will try and grab them if they're left unattended. With stealth it makes the missions lengthy as you need to get them out without being noticed.
Maps also have a randomized feature, parts of the heists will change, safes and vaults will be in different locations, skylights can be in ceilings, the escape van will show in different spots. So maps have a lot of replayability especially with 5 difficulty settings that come with different levels of enemies. (5th difficulty is unlockable)
There's a variety of unlocks you get randomly during missions that allow you to buy them with in game currency (no micro-transactions or whatever). These unlocks range from guns, masks+colors+textures,cash, exp etc. You have a wide range of guns, wider with DLC from shotguns, pistols, SMGs, rifles, assault rifles, grenade launchers(DLC), sniper rifles(DLC), LMGs (DLC).
Okay let me go over the DLC right quick here: There's no need to go grab the DLC though as there's quite the variety of weaponry to choose from and the other guns may not suit your playstyle and such. There's a bunch of DLC free and pay but the devs were good with this...as long as the host has a DLC for say a heist DLC thing? You can play even if you don't own it, just the host requires it and that's it.
Here's the issue, the game hinges on playing with people. There are bots who will fill in for any missing players, but they do not move bags, fix or place drills. They're durable gunners who'll help you if you're downed and will come if you call them. (they can also be disabled and not used). So, playing alone will be really impossible when all the responsibilities lie on one player to move bags, fix drills. You'll have to do all the technical parts of the game while the bots cover you which will make it dull. There's an active community and you'll never have trouble ...at the time of writing, to get into a match. Though your mileage will vary with randoms as ...well they're random strangers.
NOTE: When reading reviews, or looking up youtube vids, this game is ALWAYS changing as they add new stuff and different things both free and pay, so it can be hard to gauge what you're getting into. I played this game for many hours and stopped for a bit to play some other games, I come back and the maps have more random set ups, and there's new enemies I've NEVER seen before that added a lot of new challenge. Honestly? Got some friends, this game is 100% worth it.
A Game Best Played With FriendsDeathbyQuigley | Sept. 17, 2014 | See all DeathbyQuigley's reviews »
This is by far one of the best games i have ever played. If you liked the the game Payday the Heist then you are in for a sweet ride. You can coordinate some jobs with your team to try and complete them stealthy or you can walk in guns blazing and go out with style. This game is all about having fun with your friends and communicating to get the job done. If you want a challenge, once you hit a certain rank in payday 2 you are able to participate in high paying jobs known as death wish difficulties. On these you really need a superb team and one who means business.
This game is awesome in the fact that you earn rewards after finishing a mission in game like masks, money, weapon attachments and paints/textures to customize your mask the way you want it. The DLC for this game is also great too because it offers many different weapons, masks and tons of other goodies.
Payday 2 is a great game, not only because of the content but also the graphics and sounds are amazing. Who doesnt want good visuals or hearing dubstep/ techno music while robbing a bank or doing other missions
Another great plus about this game is that Overkill studios(the Developers) are constantly coming out with new dlc's and updates to keep the game community going.
Above all this game is a great choice if you have friends who play or even if you just like the first person shooter aspect. Id recommend this game to anyone in a heartbeat.
Best Co-op FPS gamezhim1990 | Aug. 28, 2014 | See all zhim1990's reviews »
Payday 2 has rewrite the meaning of being a FPS game. While every FPS game is asking their players to pull trigger, Payday 2 requires you to think before showing your gun. Missions setting is making this game amazing, every mission is unique and challenging, although it is a FPS game, there's always million ways to clear your mission, and will lead you to different result. The skill tree system is also a wonderful part in this game, you can always try on different skills combination and find out the style you most wanted. Unlike other FPS game skill tree, there is no useless skill in Payday 2. You may say there are some less powerful or inconspicuous skills, but during every heist (or war), those skills may give you an unexpected effect.
Getting a kick out of crimedamaffin | Aug. 20, 2014 | See all damaffin's reviews »
Payday 2 is one of the best games I've ever played and that for many reasons. Firstly I'd like to say I personally stepped into this game inexperienced, as in I hadn't tried the previous game or known anything about it. Regardless of that fact I tried it, and loved it. The game really gives you a (more or less) realistic feeling of robbing a bank or any other job there has been. The guns and masks are all customizable and usable (for a fee of course). And the greatest thing about this game is the cooperation between you and your teammates, and also the free updates the developers throw in sometimes. Would recommend for anyone who wants a great coop experience combined with a bit of skill.
