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.

Payday 2 is the first I have played in the series, and I have to say I was impressed!
This game relies heavily on team cooperation especially when you get to the higher difficulties. Payday truly shines when playing with friends and when everyone has mics - as I said this game requires tight teamwork. Online matchmaking is available and entertaining, but can be spotty: sometimes it is difficult to find people to play a particular mission or sometimes it is difficult to find competent teammates.
The character class and gun customization are interesting and allow different players to have somewhat different play styles. I will say that these customization options can be somewhat intimidating when they are first approached.
Overall a very fun game, would definitely recommend to a friend.

Payday 2 is one of the best games around. From melee weapons to the M16 as well as great character (where my favorite one is Hoxton), Payday 2 does break the rules "The Heist" set a few years ago.
Recently, Overkill announced that they are actually going to support this game for another 2 years which literally means we won't get a new Payday in the next while but will get support for this wonderful game which you simply have to own.
A very well deserved 93 for our one and only Payday 2.

You will be hearing that A LOT if you get this game... and often a cloaker will instantly knock you down (a thing you will learn to hate)
With all those "competitive" shooters out there like cs:go, battlefield, the now probably dead cod... you will be happy to know that games like this are becoming more and more popular. First with l42, killing floor.... and then, with payday 1 (PayDay 2 is the real and true only PAYDAY you should play, is 100 times better then the first one in every possible way) The PVE era is starting to be a real thing among the FPS games.
Ok enough of all that... if you love guns, and FPS in general, you will love this one to the MAX! Weapons feel very good too shoot and you will enjoy every moment you reload your weapon, as the animation of it is very well done.
SCORE: 85 because it is not "PERFECT" it does has lots of bugs and glitches, and sadly most of the people who play it "cheats" unlocking everything from the get go.. as the dlc system of this game is very friendly for say it in one way, and people abuse of that unlocking stuff by force.
In short: A very solid and challenging PVE shooter. Have FUN!

This game is pretty good, the weapons and characters are cool. It's nice that you can work for a while and continue to upgrade your character's abilities. The gameplay could be a bit better though. Some of the heists are just impossible! I think it also kinda sucks that you have to buy a bunch of DLC to get any of the really cool weapons! But I got it on sale and I've still enjoyed playing it!
Not as fun as the originalShaide | Jan. 23, 2015 | See all Shaide's reviews »
If you like heists and being the bad guy, you might really enjoy this, Though I would suggest playing with friends, since most of the PUG gamers take the heists EXTREMELY seriously. This made it really uncomfortable for me to play in groups while I was learning the ropes.
Still, as I said, it's a fun game and would happily recommend it to friends, although it wasn't as fun or straight forward as the original.
