PAYDAY 2: Difficulties & Sniper Beta 1.3

By 2018-02-23PAYDAY 2

One Down Toggle Update

Now it’s back! The One Down mechanic can now be turned on or off from the buy contract menu. You wanna play some One Down Overkill? Sure thing. How about One Down Normal? No problem. The choice is all yours.

To see One Down lobbies on CrimeNet you need to allow them in the filters menu. With the filter turned on; other player’s One Down lobbies will become visible on CrimeNet alongside normal lobbies.

The lobbies are marked with a red “1” next to the contract icon and the text “ONE DOWN” as an indicator under the difficulty. After joining the server you can also see the “ONE DOWN” indication in the lobby, the loadout, as well as the tab and esc screens while ingame.

Animation Update

On top of it all we are expanding our animation library with not five, not ten, but a whopping 50 new hurt animations!

All these new ways to have SWATS fall and collapse are added to the animations sets for the SWATS to bring even a bigger repertoire of pain. The animations offer lots of new and subtle variations for when the enemies take damage.

Stay on your feet heisters.
OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.
