Payday 2 Gets A New DLC, Perfect For Reservoir Dogs Fans

Payday 2

The team over at Overkill Software are getting into their own version of the holiday spirit - with the traditional, good 'ol heist for Payday 2. For those that have been a fan of the title, you may remember last year's homage to the ever beloved Scarface - now Reservoir Dogs gets its own little special tribute! Here's what the team had to say the free DLC coming to the popular game:

"The year is nearly over but we all know, sleep is for the weak! Today we proudly present our collaboration with the biggest Heisters in movie history! Reservoir Dogs is coming to Payday 2. It’s time to wear your best suit, clean those good old guns and get out there to steal some diamonds! "

“La la land is waiting,” says the video's description. “Packed with diamonds and dreams of a better life. A better life that can be achieved with a lot of dough. So the PAYDAY gang are heading to California where anything is possible.”

With new DLC comes new weapons, and the Reservoir Dogs Heist does not disappoint in that arena either:

With a new heist, comes a new weapon. The Union Rifle could become your new favourite heisting companion, but try it out for yourself.

It’s not Reservoir Dogs if there’s no razor blade involved. Time to give those cops a close shave with your new Alabama Razor. But be careful, that thing is sharp!

If a mask is too warm, but wearing nothing at all just feels wrong. Then maybe it's time for a new pair of sunglasses.. And since taste can differ greatly, we hereby bring you three fabulous choices.

Developer Notes

  • Grenade LaunchersThe grenade launcher were too much of a power house, while we want to make them a bit less powerful we did not want to take away the impact they had. The grenade launcher will still take care of your shield needs but will require you to be a bit more accurate to get out the same effect as before.
  • Vulcan MinigunThis change aims to make the Minigun all about a continuous storm of bullets that shreds everything in close to medium range. Even with its damage reduced, it’s still the highest DPS weapon in the game.
  • BikerThe Biker regeneration was to hard to predict for players, we worked into reducing the cooldown of the on team kill abilities to give a more reliable source of armor and health.
