    by OVERKILL_Tobias on January 12, 2018 at 3:14 pm

    ​Hotfix 170.1We are going live today with a hotfix to the update from yesterday. The fixes only affect the PC version so there is no update to VR today. This update will fix the issue where a lot of levels were missing from the Crime Spree roster as well as a red dot issue. Included are also some fixes for Crime Spree issues related to controllers and a crash fix when joining a heist, this should improve the experience and avoid some seemingly random crashes that have been reported in the past.Crime always pays unless you get cloaked.OVERKILL_TobiasOVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.Update 170.1 ChangelogUpdate size: 13.5MbGeneralAdded the missing Crime Spree levelsFixed a crash that could occur if a client joined a game at the same time as a body was despawningFixed so that you can press “start the heist” or “reroll” after finishing a heist in Crime Spree when using a controllerFixed so that when you open a safe the animation is no longer infiniteFixed so that the Compact Holosight has a reticleFixed so that the AK5 Rifle has a correctly aligned reddot reticleFixed so that the Bernetti 9 Pistol has a correctly aligned reddot reticleFixed so that the Deagle Pistol has a correctly aligned reddot reticleFixed so that the Chimano Custom Pistol has a correctly aligned reddot reticleFixed the strings on some of the “Becoming …” achievements that they refer to the correct infamy lev […]

  • PAYDAY2: Update 170 and VR Beta 1.6

    by OVERKILL_Tobias on January 11, 2018 at 4:26 pm

    ​​New Year, More Heisting!We are back again after the holidays and new year celebrations. We ended last year with a bang and we start the new year with a crimewave over Washington. Four more levels gets added to the Crime Spree to further expand the roster of levels available to you.Attention:As new levels are added to the rotation any active Crime Sprees will be reset.You pay continental coins to start again from the same level or claim your reward and start over.We are also continuing the tweaks we started last year. This time the focus is Special Weapons, Sniper Rifles and some other weapons. The Swan Song skill has also been adjusted.VR BetaFor VR beta we have improved the Inventory Belt customization. You can now set the location of the boxes and further improve your experience in the game and improve your heisting capabilities.At the same time we looked over the fadeout system when your head collides with a wall or ceiling. You now have more options to define how you want the game to react.Last but not least we added a new red dot shader to all non-zoomed red dot sights. This should further increase the realism when you make the helmets fly. This does not affect zoomed sights. You can find a complete list below in the change log.Special Weapons and Swan Song tweaksThe Rocket Launchers and the Thanatos were originally designed to be the best weapons for dispatching bulldozers. Recently we feel like they have not been competitive enough to compensate for the drawbacks they bring with them. For this reason we are raising their damage to reduce how many shots they need to kill Bulldozers.While we like the way Swan Song works, it is often viewed as a mandatory skill for the One Down difficulty due to how strong of a counter it is to the one down mechanic. With the reduced duration the player will have to work harder to make the most out of the skill.To a new heisting year of loot and gunfire.OVERKILL_TobiasOVERKILL – a Starbreeze Studio.Update sizes:Update 170: 152MBUpdate 170 to VR Beta 1.6: 96.7MBVR Beta 1.52 to VR Beta 1.6: 173.4MBUpdate 170 Crime SpreeAdded Brooklyn Bank Heist to the Crime Spree rotationAdded Alaskan Deal to the Crime Spree rotationAdded Reservoir Dogs: Garnet Group Boutique to the Crime Spree rotationAdded Reservoir Dogs: Highland Mortuary to the Crime Spree rotationGeneralUpdated the crimenet loading screen hints with the new Crime.net interfaceFixed an issue where vehicles could get stuck on debris from the SWAT turretFixed an issue with Ethans health being to low on the One Down difficulty when having him as team AISoundRemoved an Ethan line where he mentions Cloaker instead of intended Bulldozer.WeaponsArbiterFixed an issue where it was not using the intended damage valuesChina PuffFixed an issue where it was not using the intended damage valuesInterceptor 45Fixed so that the red dot sight is not misaligned if you use the expert slideHRL-7 Rocket LauncherRocket damage increased to 12500 (up from 10000)Commando 101 Rocket LauncherRocket damage increased to 6200 (up from 5000)Thanatos .50 cal Sniper RifleBullet damage increased to 3500 (up from 2800)DMR Kits Weapon ModsAmmo pick up has normalised to reliable pick up one bullet per boxBroomstick Pistol – Precision BarrelAmmo pick up has normalised to reliable pick up one bullet per boxGalant RifleAmmo pick up decreased by 20%M308 RifleAmmo pick up decreased by 20%Cavity 9mmAmmo pick up decreased by 20%Little Friend 7.62 Assault RifleAmmo pick up decreased by 20%STRYK 18c PistolThe recoil pattern was tweaked to be easier to control and more predictable for the playerThe camera shake effect has been reducedThe Judge ShotgunTotal Ammo decreased to 35 (down from 40)SkillsSwan Song – AcedSkill duration bonus is reduced to 3 seconds.
