PAYDAY2: Desync Beta Goes Live

By 2017-07-06PAYDAY 2

The Desync Beta has received some great response, we are very pleased with the results. Now it’s time to release it into the main game and let the entire community enjoy the improvements that the Beta gave.

Below you will find the changelog for this update with bug fixes and changes made to the main game, as well as a separate changelog of fixes to issues found in the Desync Beta since the last update. You can also find a list of all changes that were made during the time the Beta was live.


It’s important that you uninstall any anti-desync mod you might be using.
These mods may cause glitches or crashes if left installed once the update is installed.

LuaJit and Mod Support

This update does not include LuaJIT. It was included in the Beta but we removed it since that would break all the mods for the game. The LuaJIT update will come at a later date when the feature is ready. We try our best to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The heist must go on…
OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.
