PAYDAY 2: Update 181

By 2018-06-14PAYDAY 2

Here comes round #2 of our spring clean up, this time with more than 60 fixes and tweaks. From now on you need to be more careful while trading hostages, since your trade-able hostage is not invulnerable anymore. This change was made since players could get into the situation that the picked hostage was outside of the playable area and therefore out of reach. On the plus side, you can now use the pool ladder on Big Oil Day 2!

Stay frosty,
OVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.
