A brief look at The Dragan Character Pack DLC. [PAYDAY 2]

Let’s take a brief look at The Dragan Character Pack. This was the second paid character pack released for PAYDAY 2, and introduced Dragan to the group. Dragan is a 45 year old ex-cop from Croatia. He was doing quite well for himself working for Interpol… …using brutal violence and his network of allies to earn his payday. However, after Dragan teamed up with The Butcher to protect her firearm trafficking operation… …she assigned him to head for The States and join The PAYDAY Gang. …in return, she’d contract out some big jobs to Bain, for us to handle. While the crew was a bit uneasy about Dragan joining at first, with him being an ex-officer and all… …his commitment to the job at hand, and ability to handle himself in a fight, made him a great addition to the group. Dragan’s Croat ethnicity is very apparent in his voice- [DRAGAN: Dozer killed! Got a shield over here!] -especially his swearing, in both languages. [DRAGAN: (something in Croatian I couldn’t find a translation sorry!) Get me a medic bag, or mercy kill me!] And I’m sure most of you who have stealthed as Dragan before know about his entertaining pager responses. [DRAGAN: The radio is near my crotch. My boner pressed the button, not me.] Dragan is a very popular heister, and one of my personal favourites. It probably helps that his actor, Dragomir Mršić, was once a bank robber in the 90s… …although it cost him three and a half years in prison. He’s been clean and a pretty great actor since then though. Next, let’s talk about his perk deck: Infiltrator. This one is a bit interesting; it’s revolved around close quarters combat. The more enemies that are near you, the less overall damage you take. It caps off at three enemies being within 18 meters of you, giving you a 32% damage reduction. This also stacks with the Underdog skill, totalling to 47% damage reduction! That means you’re only taking about half the damage that you would be otherwise! Infiltrator also gives a 20% boost to melee damage every time you hit with a melee attack. This can stack up to four times, totaling to 80% more melee damage! The boost lasts seven seconds and will go away if you miss a melee attack. Finally, when you hit an enemy with a melee attack (doesn’t matter if it’s lethal or not), …you’ll restore 20% of your health. You can only do this once every ten seconds. This perk deck works very well for heavy armour builds. As long as you’ve got enemies nearby… …you’ll be taking very little damage, and hopefully will be keeping your health capped off. Infiltrator has two pretty big weaknesses… …Snipers, since they are far enough away to not proc the damage resistance… …and being revived on higher difficulties. Since you’re only left with a tiny amount of health, running up to cops and meleing them and restore it back can be pretty risky. Still though, if you can keep that damage resistance up, and remember to incorporate melee into your combat… …this perk deck is a great choice. Up next is his melee weapon: Dragan’s Cleaver Knife. This weapon is pretty swift, and has decent range and knockdown… …but the damage is very low. Regardless, it’s fast speed pairs well with Infiltrator, making healing yourself a much easier task. Finally we have his rifle: The Lion’s Roar. This gun… is pretty average. A good rate of fire, accuracy, and damage is offset by low concealment, reload speed, and lack of mods… …most glaringly being NO mag capacity upgrades. This gun is also, weirdly enough, MORE accurate when hip-firing while moving… …as opposed to aimed-down-sights while moving. It is actually MORE accurate to not use the sights while moving. Be sure to ADS if you’re stood still, though, that still helps. If this gun had more mods, I would say it’s good, but as is it’s beaten out by other rifles like the Car-4 and The Queen’s Wrath. So, with everything said… would I recommend The Dragan Character Pack? Weeell, it depends. Pretty much everything in this pack has a vanilla alternative that performs similarly or outright better. However, Infiltrator is pretty fun and still viable, and Dragan himself is a great character. So, if you’re interested in the character, and are looking for a fun CQC oriented perk deck… …The Dragan Chracter Pack is for you. If you don’t care about either of them, then you can safely give this a pass. Thanks for watching, and take it easy!

    Great video. Personally I love Dragan as I am a Serb myself, so I understand his lines. He's just an overall cool character, and no matter what other characters I play, I come back to him. A great video as always, keep it up!

  6. 5color says:

    You pronounced Dragan wrong :/

  7. Yallah Habibi says:

    I actually really enjoy the Lion's Roar, for me it's a healthy hybrid between the M-16 and Famas, but its all up to what you just grow to like in-game and less about the raw stats.

  8. Aaron Mimz says:

    I used to use the lion's roar on a sneaky bastard aced dodge build. Worked really well with a bernetti as a secondary to take down specials.

  42. Irfan Spirtovic says:

    Why does everyone pronounce Dragan as Dragon
    In Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian every letter has a separate sound,and there are no "letter mixes" like th,ch,DR etc etc
    so it's pronounced Drah-gun
    Also Dragomir Mrsić is pronounced Drug-oh-mere Mrr-seech

  43. -NeXus - says:

    was it Dragan where when he came out there was a bug that his voice lines wouldnt trigger? Anybody remember that?

    Still to this day I get annoyed at both players and the characters who call Dragan…. Dragon – Where is the "O"? Its an "A", no "O". You say it Dray-gen, or Drah-Gan

  47. Beaver Bites says:

    "A forty five year old ex cop from Croatia."
