Why don't people ever use the stryk? It can be pretty accurate if you have basic sharpshooter and switch to single fire, it has absurd fire rate if you want to dps, it has a huge mag even before you extend it, is decently concealable and is

Nice game you faggots
bought it today, played through that weird safehouse thing and used the laptopn
Now all missions i pick are super hard difficulty and i get kicked all the time.
Pic related, they all say Death wish
Don't most games transfer host or some shit
Can we talk about this for a second?
Why do we need to wait for someone to join?
Why does the game freeze?
I never saw that anywhere, not even on facebook games wtf
Also, how come that pirateperefection gets rid of that?
Anyone want to do some achievo hunting with me?
If you are serious
The yellow glow means that you are getting bonus experience for doing those heists. The little + sign above the heist. The most + the greater the bonus experience at the end. Just do one of them and the + will go away.
I have - - - on this Jew Store because I did it over and over again. Which means I'm getting an exp penalty instead of a bonus.
The glow is entirely different from difficulty.
If you play a single mission a bunch of times in sucession, it eventually starts to get a -exp modifier and a red glow, bsasically telling you "Hey, go and do something else for a while".
Conversely, if you haven't played a mission in a while, it'll get a +exp modifier and a yellow glow, telling you "Hey, if you don't want to stare at the fucking sun every time you open Crime.net, go play this mission".
Difficulty is determined by the number of skulls under a mission.
>Why do we need to wait for people to join?
Literally makes no sense. In L4D2 the bot keeps playing until the guy actually joins the match. It might show his name but it is still the bot playing
that's not how it works, if you play a certain mission too much, it will give you neg exp and then boost other missions by that exact amount. There's a default value so you can have bonuses without negative missions
it's still stupid
Yeah, but you still have to go to their page every update, and join their steam group.
just those two so that I could put it in my lua folder and forget about it would be great.
>just join who gives a fuck
Then why do you?
its only when you host and easily ignored
but yeah, you should be able to if you go in the tweakdata.lua and scroll down to
self.disable_enhanced_assault_indicator = false --Change to true to disable the enhanced assault indicator that shows when you're hosting a game.
self.assault_phase_text = self.local_strings.hoxhud_assault_phase_text
self.assault_spawn_amount_text = self.local_strings.hoxhud_spawn_amount_text
self.assault_time_left_text = self.local_strings.hoxhud_assault_time_left_text
self.phase_map = self.local_strings.hoxhud_assault_phase_map
and set it to true
Actually, I found out that bronco is a decent bull killer
things fucking destroys their plate, its damn great
I learned how to aim it, so it's fun as fuck
Another weapon is that rifle idk the name now, but u know, the one that isnt a sniper but it kinda is
it's not that bad, the ammo is shit tho
>Payday 2 has different heisters
>New heisters are relatively enjoyable except for one bland character everyone hates
>HB is instead a heist where NewHeisters are breaking into a MaxSec prison, being helped by Dallas and Wolf
>Chains manning a MG while the police raid keeps going
>Finally get to Hoxton's cell
>Open the door to be greeted by a Skulldozer
>After killing him, you find Hoxton
dead, with a rifle and mask in his arms
Payday 2 would have hats to go along with the masks. Hat and mask trading, excellent balance, and be hailed as yet another Valve hit.
L4D would have flopped due to rampant glitches, and the smoker being OP as shit.
GUYS, PILLS HERE, COME GET 'EM
Probably because they want to be able to do it loud if they screw up instead of just restarting endlessly. Isn't that how the game is supposed to be played?
If they have saws though then they shouldn't be doing it on normal, you're right.
I love stealth in GO bank, one of my favourite heists. You can't just shoot 4 guards and set up a drill or just have your spotter mark the few guards you can't kill while you wait for them to move. There is actually time pressure the need for multiple people and adapting to new developments.
loadout is pretty terrible
JP36 with mid-scope and laser sights.
or reinfield with close range sight, (which everyone shits on for some reason)
usually a loco
or a silenced STRYK for stealth
Before there was 4 guards inside, a possibility (more like always) for 2 gensec to arrive and a guard sitting in the toilet. That's 7 guards. That means you had to answer four pagers, get the dom and joker the toilet guard and finally get the double dom on the gensec.
Now there is 2 guards inside and a possibility for two gensec guys standing outside and if you kill them then Hillary Clinton wont send more guards there.
But there's still unlimited civs during the timelock.
which perkdeck does /pdg/ like the most?
armorer i guess, but i still wonder
I wish you could visit friends safe houses and look at their guns and masks and vaults
And maybe rob people's vaults who you don't like
You could set up and purchase defenses for your safe houses
And you could pretend to be somebody's friend
And scope out the safehouse
Then rob them later
The amount of money you can take could be based off of how well defended their safe houses are
Never able to rob them completely though
And maybe have a cooldown after being robbed so you can't get robbed constantly
I just want the safehouse to replace the planning phase lobby. Mirin' other people's vaults and dicking around on the firing range while the host uses the little computer to find a heist to play.
I tried Armorer for a short while and maybe, maybe if I stuck with it to the very end it'd be interesting but as is it's just way too weak to compare to the other trees, especially early on
Before I reset my points how does this look? Planning on suitrogue with a car4 modded for concealment so I get the most out of sneaky bastard and low blow
what does Dallas have going for the military?
a flag that's it, stop being tricky
Eh, why bother? That's an entire seperate level you'd have to load EVERY FUCKING TIME you want to play a heist. That's retarded.
It's a menu, it doesn't have to be any more fancy than that.
Armorer is better on the really long heists or on deathwish because you get more out of the armor bonus the more times it recharges and the less health you get after being downed. Muscle is good for shorter heists or when playing on overkill.
I'd suggest this then: http://pd2skills.com/#/v3/mda:eIEFgDa:tEbDa:gklhJEFGCda:fqroKMiJEFGbCa:pR8o8::w10-2-12-14-16-25-26-43-46
Those really aren't going to help you sneak much and are costing a LOT of skill points
They very rarely come into play
>Rats day 2
>Firestarter day 2
>Ukrainian Job on Overkill or below
>Harvest and Trustee variants
Probably a few more, but it's not many heists and even heists that have it it's usually just optional or speeds things up when they can easily be done by other means (C4, saw, key cards, etc.)
Although aced ECM Overdrive could be fun on the new Hoxton Breakout
The only times I can think of ace lockpicking being useful are
>Go bank if in a hurry
>Nightclub if there's a dude that would see the drill in the top office
Really, really niche
I was a dumbass and posted in the old thread. Are people tired of Fugmasters yet? Here's my go at Triple Pistol Jesus. Anything I could do better?
AFTER MONTHS OF GRINDING JEW STORE, THE RNG HAS FINALLY GIVEN UP THE 42ND
I. AM. FREE.
And it only took running out of gun mods, and probably getting 2-4 of each material, pattern, and colours to finally get to this point.
Fuck the RNG.
Fuck it forever.
Now all I need to do is get to V-100 and I'm done until they release more infamy tiers.
You're a sad and pathetic little man.
I wanted a particular material, pattern, and colors for my mask. I never grinded for it. I just played the damn game and let it happen naturally. Eventually I got to 100 and I finally collected the exact things I wanted for my mask just by playing the game for fun. And experience I guess
Which I also don't like, especially since they serve no purpose at all, your random reward is determined before you even choose a card. I wish they at least had some choice, like three random cards face-up.

I don't understand. If people don't want pubs in their game why don't they make the lobby friends only or private?
>Opulence they had it.
Why do I find russinglish so fucking hilarious? Also Vlad. My god he has some of the best lines in the game.
No, I just started playing again and I hit I-54. It happens pretty often but I've never been kicked before I load in more than once a day, much less 3 times in a row.
Playing through the missions with "testAllStrings" set to true.
so um i added a guy from pdg to do some achievements

>tfw he starts singing and I'm the only one who knows the words
I don't know why the KSG is even in Payday 2. It's a subpar riot shotgun, but it's being shoehorned into video games as the nest greatest thing. The biggest gimmick of the gun isn't even showcased in any of the games that feature it, all they do is show off "lmao2tubes!! 2!!!"
nah but i could tell this nigga sits on 4chin too much
he insta called me an autist for some reason
also, it was kinda funny in the end cuz he was also wayyyyyyyy too sensitive
>oh hey man u MUST BE BRITISH!
>OH YEA I AM HOW DID U FIGURE THAT OUT HA?ARE U A DETECITIVE NICE JOB AUTISTS!!!
he just spoke in memes mostly, after he ran out he just stayed quite then he removed me after
"I won't let you model my face and use my voice, but feel free to model this prop gun I got from Hollywood."
Fun confirmed to be an illusion for incompetent gaylords who cannot understand ballistic performance.
i just remembered somethin
he was with a friend
>guys got any jokes to tell?
>if u want to laugh, just go to your election
>other guy asked about how our "politics" are doing
what the fuck?
They could have given some half assed mod that's a "modified frame" that was just a different color cylinder and said it was made to block off the cylinder gap so you could put a suppressor on it
You could just look through either the achievement list and see which ones unlock weapon mods
Or you could go through the weapon mods on a weapon you want to see what achievements lock off some of its mods
I was just going to link directly but it thinks my post is spam
pls no bully
It's kind of depressing seeing all the HM failures really, I don't know how accurate the stats are but they look about right.
Wrong in so many ways I don't know where to explain. Do you know what they treat metal with when they make milspec equipment? You don't want that in your body ever, at all, under any circumstances.
Get to lvl 100 before you even start thinking of cheating.
Infamy resets spending cash, skill points and 200m from offshore.
Kawaii best mask.
Skill trees and missions you have to figure out yourself.
>thinking it will poison you just by touching your weapon
Nice try, but still wrong. It's designed to be corrosion resistant, so the salts exuded from your pores won't affect it, but heat will cause it to break down and enter your food.
Don't act dumb.
What's the current copypaste machine gun build?
Been using this.
I'd prefer to have a saw and also be able to use the machine gun well. I do like shotguns.
>I'd prefer to have a saw
I fucking hate it when sawbabbies bring a saw on missions where you can shoot the doorknob to gain entry. Almost as bad as Ghostfags trying to justify "m-muh faster lockpicking and safecracking!" when the safes are Titans on the missions that matter.
I don't understand, I've done about twice the missions in about half the time.
do you AFK a lot?
it also seems like the majority of your heists are below overkill and your most often completed heists are really low exp (jew store four stores nightclub and mallcrasher are your most completed heists) so it's some combination of low exp heists and lots of AFK/shitting around
>Fairly new to this game should I just join modded lobbies to avoid grinding?
Get to level 100 as fast as you can
Then be another clueless high-level fuck who has no idea what he's doing when it comes to figure out how to finish a heist
Machine gun as in LMG or assault rifle?
Also, you have a couple silly skills, like shotgun accuracy being aced and reload speed being vacant, overkill aced, cable guy only basic, no fast hands, and fugitive with dodge and thick skin when you have ictv
Lots of afking, yeah. Although not in matches. I just don't like seeing "400 hours" when I haven't done a whole lot of anything and I'm not sure what my actual hours-played would or should be given my progress.
Jew and fourstores are farming, at least
I only ever bring it on bank missions and other missions where things need to be opened quickly. But it's great to have on those missions.
LMG. My regular team mates often pick other guns, so I take the LMG quite often and enjoy using it.
I'm actually here, neither of them are me.
You came into the lobby and straight away started insulting me and the other guy right off the bat completely unprovoked, non stop talking and just generally acting like a retard.
After you started doing the former I was genuinely asking if you had some sort of mental ailment. After coming to consensus with the new guy from PDG here that you're too much of an autist-shitlord to have around we dumped you. Simple.
You're the stereotypical /vg/ player, every general has some no matter the game.
Next time, don't come into a lobby with new people and immediately start attempting to insult everyone, when you do the outcome is usually negative.
TL:DR Social Skills, get them.
Why doesn't SMGs get damage skills is beyond me. ARs have high damage already, pistols have fire rate, accuracy and damage skills. Shotguns have stability, reload speed and damage. What do SMGs get? whoaitsfuckingnothing.jpg
SMGs are pretty decent already actually, they just lack that one thing that would make it worth picking them which would be a huge ammo pool. As it is now they are like a sort of crappy version of the assault rifles that don't even benefit from their buffs.
Any anon have a spare assault to trade?
Alternatively, buy my shit.
SMGs exist for mag dumping. I have been trying to work a build for them because they are dicks for range and damage and you need to be up close. Imagine a thumper and specops.
The same people who say cloakers are bad game design are the shittrs who think Hunters in Left 4 Dead are bad game design. Let's be honest here, cloakers = hunters and both punish players who run off on their own like dipshits. Stay with the fucking group you asshats.
liek omg anon u r such a noob
cloakers r just unfare bcuz it makes teh gaem boring and liek u r stuk playin teh gaem 1 way insted of how u liek 2 play
dey r just pointles and bad gaem dezine jeez
if i wonted 2 get sum extra kilz cuz my teem is 2 scared and noobs, then i should b able 2. god ur so autistic anon.
Lockpicking is only useful for 1 or 2 heists.
ECM overdrive is great if you got 2 and three buddies with 2 each.
Then you can in theory stun cops permanently in an area, give or take a few seconds for the next ecm to kick in.
You have that inane hissing noise in your ear for like 5-15 seconds before they even turn around to look at you.
You can't call yourself competent if you can't even pick up on a nearby Cloaker hiding in the same fucking spots they always hide in.
Also if you don't realise Cloakers are free heals with an Inspirefag in your team outside of DW, you need to git gud. inb4 somebody tells me it applies to DW too with the *Muscle* deck
Just look at either of these builds and lean towards or copy one. Oppresor doesn't help you dom just increases a chance they will dodge, the fug armor bonus doesn't affect anything that doesn't have ballistic in its name.
Read the long guide, it is posted in the OP.
I've got only a couple of solutions, but no easy ones. I don't have the list of strings used by PAYDAY 2, and I could set it up so that strings are printed to a file as they're "translated", but I'd have to end up playing the missions anyway.

So desperate is he to try and elevate the general perception of his shitter self, that he has to interject and quote every single other post on an entirely unrelated topic.

I have a question as to how I can unlock the Death pattern again? This Lua I have unlocks every pattern, but Death isn't included. I see it, but it's marked as a Loot Bag item. I just want to create more masks with this pattern.

The assets on DW Firestarter are surprisingly useful if you do one hangar at a time, withdrawing to the van in between. I know it's not the optimal way to do it, but when a friend and I were in a pickle we ended up being grateful for them.
I mean worse in the sense of "this is such a painful pun that it's even painful in-universe, to the characters themselves". Payday's cheese is half the appeal and I never want these bank robber to stop being goofy idiots.
Did they nerf the locomotive, and does the fugitive armor thing apply to the ICTV?
Well then, brother, motherfuckin enlighten me.
If you level up the Fugitive skill that gives you a bonus to steadiness and ballistic vests, and don't equip the Crook deck, you gain the bonus to all armors except the suit. Go try it, it works.
You have 10 seconds to explain why you don't use Nine Lives with aced Swan Song.
I'm surprised Crew Chief gets shit on so hard. It gets a nice assortment of bonuses but nothing particularly high-impact.
Muscle's Disturbing the Peace is fucking god-tier; it's exactly what lmgs needed.
Muscle perks with
Silent killer and the professionalactually make LMGs legit as fuck.
You can get the KSP to 18 acc, 30 stability if you don't mind missing the 40 damage breakpoint, 14 accuracy if you do.
Aside from the 42 skill point sink in ghost I'd rate it viable on overkill.
Last time I checked silenced LMGs don't trigger DtP. They work wonders with the rogue deck's bonuses though.
>30% less likely to be targeted
>everything turns its back to the guy with a suppressed KSP
Because they haven't implemented an axe sword for me to use nine lives with??
also it's DW-viable
Oppressor will only work if your gun has threat
Check that your suppressor doesn't completely remove threat, and also check that you're not relying on being a low-priority target. And also check your privilege cis-scum.
Well shit, my friend said they did. In that case I'd just use armourer
Not if they're silenced, they have pisspoor threat with a silencer.
Yeah, I figured as much. I'd never bring it though as I can't stand to not have inspire and ICTV on DW.
Add/remove long barrel to pick your poison.
>18 accuracy on an LMG
God bless silencers
Okay, I need help from you techno-wizards in here. I had been grinding Jew Store for 4 days straight and I wanted to get the Pumpkin pattern from the Halloween event. I was directed to a site called Pirate Perfection, installed it, and unlocked the couple mask-related things I wanted. After I was done, I deleted the files that the .rar put into my folder under Steam > Steamapps > Common > Payday2 and re-installed Hoxhud. I re-launched the game, and some of my masks are locked, saying that I don't have the Gage Weapon Pack #02 and I can only wear a Gage Blade with that. Which is weird, seeing as I own the DLC and can use the guns from that pack. Someone suggested toggling the DLC itself and re-starting,then re-enabling it and starting the game again, no luck. Then I uninstalled and re-installed. Nada. Now I'm completely purging everything Steam related (basically Payday and DotA2) and starting from a clean slate. Any idea what happened?
can i pirate this game and play by myself?
or is it like left for dead 2 co-op style and you need to do it online with peeps?
I'm new to the world of hacking things. I don't even want to do shit to my offshore / infamy or make the game easier, I just wanted a pretty mask ;_;
I know the thing had an "Unlock all DLC" option, and that's probably what fucked things up. I don't want the hack on my computer now that I've gotten my British Flag Hoxton mask.
>playing a co-op game by yourself
fuck anon if you need someone to play with that's what we're here for, don't be shy. people post here all the time asking for a game and usually it all works out.
