These past ten days have been crazy. So much has happened...

After two years in America, the moment I had been waiting for finally arrived, but it was not as I expected.

So many strange things have happened these past ten days.

I had hoped and hoped to hear news of my son, and finally, the day came.

It was a strange moment, the day that I finally heard news of my son; of Kento.

Many other things have happened too. It has been an eventful ten days.

PAYDAY 2: Paper Gang
The Calm Before The Storm
Family matters. For Jiro, this is especially true. Two decades gives you more than enough time to contemplate the choices you made and realizing what’s important. And it’s time for resolution. For closure. The only question is if this new future will hold anger or reconciliation.

The PAYDAY gang consist of plenty of talents - everything from mad men and sociopaths, to ex-military and a Scot. But there’s always a need for more master criminals. And now, we at OVERKILL, are giving the Community the opportunity to get your own Heister in-game. All you have to do, is to create your own Heister by using the Blank Heister Paper Figure and then just draw, doodle, paint or spray something that’ll blow our minds. The winning Paper Figure is gonna be made into a real, playable, in-game Heister. So get cracking.

It all started with Vernon Locke getting in touch. He said he had information; that someone was out to destroy us, and he knew of a time and place where we could intercept an agent of this unknown enemy.

That shifty mercenary is a lying bastard, but we still had to investigate, of course.

Time to Burn the van again

It all starts somewhere. A ground zero so to say. Even PAYDAY. So it’s fitting to come back to the true inspiration and beginning of the whole PAYDAY saga. Heat Street. Time to catch Mr. Roscoe one more time.

PAYDAY 2: Paper Gang
Take it To The Street

An Englishman, a Scot and an Irish girl went into a bank...and robbed it without any name calling or bickering. And as someone double-crosses them, they let go of their grudges once and for all. One might state that they are inspired to solve their quarrels as money is at stake.
God rob the Queen!

Everyone was surprised to find Matt Roscoe at the rendezvous location. We chased him across town, it was insane!

As we caught up with him, he tried to buy his life saying he had information about my son. I didn't believe him but couldn't afford not to listen, just in case it was true.

Introducing a new Game Mode

Crime Spree is a sequence of several heists, all completed back-to-back for a full, crime life experience. The risks are greater but so are the rewards.

Watch Snapshot
Start off a Crime Spree by paying up Continental Coins.

By investing Continental Coins and if you’ve reached Level 60, you can go on a Crime Spree. Crime Spree is a set of random heists selected for you, and all you have to do is keep completing heists. The more you finish, the greater is the reward. But it will also get more difficult as modifiers are added to make the game more strenuous. But for those skilled enough, there will be EXP, loot drops and cash waiting.

The further you go - the greater the reward
But it will get HarderThe Heist... that never ends.
As you complete heists, you'll climb the
Crime Spree Rank and earn more rewards.

You can Claim your Reward whenever you want, but it’s only at certain Crime Spree Ranks that unique rewards await. So keep pushing.

Armor Safe

To heist is not only about lead and determination. It’s about putting on a terrifying exterior that hopefully makes bullets unnecessary. Something that instills fear and respect in your enemies. The Native Americans did it. American Football players do it. Now you can make your armor look beyond fierce. Armor Skins can be applied and used just as weapon skins, and are obtained in the Loot Drop just the same.

6 Brand New Armor Skins
Screen Filters

Each heist is different. The mood, the set up, the style. And to heighten that even further, we are introducing 12 unique Screen Filters for each and every heist. So now you’ll get even more immersed when you take on your favorite heist as everything from lightness, fog, colors and darkness can change.

PAYDAY 2: Paper Gang
Bedazzled Psychos

There’s nothing like a bit of craziness and madness to spice things up. One unstable individual is fun. Get three of them into a Jewelry Store with guns, and you have a party. A violent and dark party where reckless ways and screams are more than welcome. This. Won’t. Go. Quietly.

Roscoe would not tell us anything about the threat against us, or who he was working for, but he told me he knew of a Yakuza member named 'Kazuo' who was imprisoned in a Long Island correctional facility.

He refused to say how he knew, but he was sure that this man had information about Kento. I discussed it with the gang, and we asked Bain to devise a plan for breaking this guy out.

New Weapon
5/7 AP Pistol

Don’t mistake this for 'just' a secondary. With it’s armor piercing ammunition it comes with an impressive stopping power, and it’ll make sure that everything it hits, stays down.

Tempy

Our lion has been away for 2 weeks now and we miss him. He loves all kind of cuddle, but if you spot Tempy: Do not approach him in any way, as you will get mutilated if he gets close. Also don’t let him see any kids...that doesn’t end well.

Byrne

Byrne is our koala and our "pet". But we don’t want him back. He’s boring and tedious and all he does is eat eucalyptus leaves. So now he’s gone and we wanna keep it that way. If you find him you can keep him or whatever.

Stoibs

Stoibs ran away last tuesday night and we would be glad to get him back. We had a hard time finding a chinchilla with a good pedigree. So to start all over again with a new pet would be tedious. If you find him, we’ll invite you to the dinner where we enjoy Stoibs!

Fluffedup

Our darling Fluffedup is gone. He’s a happy little individual who’s absolutely not been trying to throw himself into the blender several times. We just want to keep him forever! So it’s super important that we get him back to us!

PAYDAY 2: Paper Gang
Veteran's Day in the Kitchen

Experience and wisdom are key to being a good heister. When you’re not a young busboy anymore, you can cook with calmness and seniority like a true sous chef. Some might laugh at aging heisters. But as they’re used to both throwing a punch as well as receiving one - you might not laugh for long.

Bain had a plan as usual. He used his contacts to engineer a riot in prison. Don't ask me how he does these things.

The result was that Kazuo was now being transferred to another prison. The plan would have to depend on exactly how this transfer would be executed.

On popular demand, we’re now introducing: Henchmen. Simply put, this is Team AI customization to the max. You can change perks and abilities and in that, complete and fill the gaps that your team might have.

Henchmen is currently in BETA mode, and therefore only available in the PAYDAY 2 open_beta Version. Join the community and give us your feedback and thoughts on the Henchmen Feature.
Henchmen are found under 'Crew Management' In-game Stream with Jules

Criminal Artwork

Heisting is in some way an art form. The three artists Sokol, Wick and Bodhi all use different styles and techniques. But together they perform pieces that will forever be remembered. However, certain armor clad critics will always try to ruin what you’ve created. But grab that minigun and keep painting the town red.

Hey guys, this is the day. Kazuo is being transferred by truck convoy, and you're breaking him out.

We'll blow the Green Bridge sky-high and then assault the convoy to get him out. It's time to make some noise, guys.

Green Bridge
Watch The Trailer
Put on your Yellow Raincoat

When it pours, it rains, as the saying goes. And for this classic it’s especially true as it’s not only water that’ll hit you. But with raincoats on and impressive stopping power in your hands, Green Bridge will never be the same.

Nilam

Nilam was swift with the blade and deadly as hell. As a woman, she sought the same respect her peers got, but this was a world ruled by men. Finally Nilam had reached her limit. Those who wronged her was “sentenced” by getting their throats slit as she sailed the seas with her ship “Verdict”.

Keelhauled Alex

Alex had been stealing food during a long sail out at sea. As he was caught, he was sentenced to be keelhauled. But as Alex was beneath the boat, another ship opened fire and Alex died. Ever since then, Keelhauled Alex haunts lonesome ships at night.

One-Eyed Jessicah

After a shipwreck, Jessicah managed to swim to a small islet. Circled by a shark, with no rescue in sight, she was caught. Her only option was to kill the shark with her knife, so she could swim to shore. But she needed a decoy. So she scooped out one of her eyeballs and threw it in the water. Then she dove in.

Schneider

Schneider’s moniker “the Devil” was well known, and tales of how the “devil” sailed the seven seas traveled among bars in the Caribbean. To “spot the Devil on the horizon” was a common saying when someone had disappeared out at sea. But the truth was that Schneider had forever buried them in a watery grave.

Ten days... ten days of mayhem. Kazuo wouldn't tell me everything, but we now know that Kento is still in the US, and he is working for the Yakuza. Does he know I'm alive? Does he remember where he's from? I don't know... I must find him, and then I will have my answers.

And another question remains; who is planning to attack the PAYDAY gang? Roscoe is not telling us everything. I think he is more afraid of his employer than of us.
