Here’s a build to try: The Basic Build (NO DLC). [PAYDAY 2]


Here’s a build to try: The Basic Build. This is your bread-and-butter, simplistic, no strings attached loud build that’ll work on any difficulty you like, including the newly added Death Sentence. It’s not complicated, it doesn’t require advanced knowledge of game mechanics, It’s just a reliable build that will make loud heists easier on you and your team, much like my older Good Build video. But updated for the recent difficulty rebalance and requiring absolutely no DLC Although, if you do own the Ultimate Edition you may get some extra mileage. Regardless Let’s take a look at my skill points In Mastermind under the Medic branch, I get basic Combat Medic and then ace Painkillers, Combat Doctor and Inspire This is hardly surprising. Inspire is still one of, if not the best skill in the game for higher difficulties. Without it, as unfortunate as it is to admit, you’re a handicap on Death Sentence. Moving swiftly on to Enforcer under the Tank branch, I’ll ace Resilience and Transporter, get basic Shock and Awe and Bullseye, and ace Ironman. Simple expected skills for any armor build, and basic Bullseye is important for the armor getting effect. It’ll save your life more often than you realize. Next up on Ammo Specialist, I’m getting basic Scavenger, acing Portable Saw, Extra Lead and Fully Loaded. The saw will save time and earn dosh on plenty of heists But the main focus here is Ammo bags and Fully Loaded as I’ve mentioned Inspire a borderline necessity so many players will bring upgraded doctor bags and no Extra ammo so both of these skills should keep you and your crew guns filled up moving on to technician this may raise some Eyebrows, but I’m gonna grab basic hardware expert in the breacher branch I couldn’t care one way or the other about the drills being silent. I’m in it for the faster repair speed trust me It’ll make sense when I get this builds final skills next up in a presser I’ll be acing steady grip and Lock and Load and grabbing basic surefire These skills all go towards improving our primary weapon and I can understand that many of you may think this is far too many skill Points to be improving a single weapon but in paydays new balanced weapons can actually well kill things So getting the most out of them is actually worthwhile as opposed to the old meta of all of your points being spent on Survival and only opting for weapons that don’t require skills to function I hope you get where I’m coming from with that out of the way I’ll hop over to ghost under the Artful Dodger branch to get basic duck-and-cover parkour and shockproof the first two skills are a given and basic shockproof is actually more than enough when it comes to dealing with tasers the skill has several chances to work while being tased and the math works out to about a 97% immunity rape to being incapacitated by tasers shoutouts to the long guy another questionable choice perhaps But I’ll be grabbing basic second wind in the silent killer branch I had a skill point left over and that 30% Movement speed increase where my Armour breaks can be the difference between making it to cover or dying out in the open if you intend To play the new one down modifier you’ll want to forget this skill and save the point for Fugitive the final tree where unsurprisingly I’ll be spending the minimum amount of points in revenant to a swan song but if you intend to play one down you can use that extra skill point you saved to grab aced my Lives as opposed to a basic version of either tier 2 skill even after the nerf swan song is still a must-have for higher difficulties getting yourself to cover inspiring a teammate just in the nick of time or using the infinite ammo to clear out a Corridor the skill is simply too. Good to pass up. This is also. Why we grabbed basic hardware expert earlier I’ll explain in more detail once we get in game for now I’ll be sorting out the rest of my kids my perk deck of choice will be armor for weld armor not to mention the faster Regeneration and two seconds of invincibility upon my armor being stripped away, if you only intend to play on mayhem Or below you could also opt for muscle instead or frankly any armor oriented perk deck you fancy I’m only recommending armor because it fits this build splendidly being a simple straightforward and free option now for the firearms And the primary slots, I’ll be using the you AR the most white-bread assault rifle available two DLC Ellis players I’ll modify it with the long barrel the tank Compensator or the competitors compensator if you’re able an accuracy boost the a3 tactical foregrip the LED combo bonus points for using a pink laser the Raptor polymer body a speed pool mag if you’re able and a site of choice after the difficulty rebalance the new break point of Interest for a 150 Samad ammo rifles is 64 damage reducing the number of shots needed to kill lightweight enemies on Deathwish and above – to evolve the assault rifles in this class both free or otherwise the you AR can hit this break point while retaining I’ll use eighty-four accuracy 96 stability is close enough to max and if using the competitor’s compensator. You’ll have perfect stability I’ll talk more about the uar later, but for now let’s move over to the secondary slot You’ll want to have a saw ready to go just in case you need it modern with an ammo boost fast motor and durable blade However for heists where a saw is not required. You’ll want the compact 40 millimeter grenade launcher It’s best to slap an accuracy boost on there and a gadget or sight if you so desire the first and thus far only free Grenade launcher the compact does damage enough to clear groups of enemies shields or bust up dozers faceplates There isn’t much else to say here honestly Yet does its job and it does it properly for my melee weapon I’ll be bringing the electrical brass knuckles to stun enemies and for my throw bow I’ll Bring concussion grenades to stun enemies You could also opt for an Sindri grenades if you’re bringing a saw instead of grenade launcher or just want a little more oomph with Your stunned grab your Iron Man armor, and you’ve got yourself the basic build. It’s a good simple rustic build I’ll touch on how best to use it just after the break Welcome back, so how does this build work it just? Does if you’ve ever played a shooter hell if you even played any amount of payday at all the basics of the basic build should Come naturally you have an assault rifle You shoot things with it now its accuracy isn’t perfect So you’ll want to close the gap to your target as much as possible and swapped a single fire mode to deal with distant snipers as for auto fire mode Which you’ll be using most of the time Ideally you can shorten downtime by scoring two kills prior to reloading the uar is inherently low mag capacity works to the benefit of Lock and Load aced granting a 90% reload speed increase if you’re able to combine it with the speed pull mag many of your reloads will feel near instantaneous when met with a wall of enemies particularly shields the compact grenade launcher will be your friend One shot should be enough to kill shields Em two shots should be plenty to deal with most anything aside from Bulldozers it may take you a few tries to get use of the arc But with some practice you’ll get the hang of it these weapons should be fairly mo efficient Thanks to fully loaded aced if you’re constantly running out of ammo Chances are your shots are being wasted by missing too frequently killing enemies that are too far away to restock with or not prioritizing medics seriously Repeatedly attempting to kill enemies who are just being healed back to full health by medics is the biggest waste of ammo you may not Realize you’re guilty of focus fire medics especially medic dozers if you’re on death sentence before Anything else if you’re still struggling keep in mind you can bring Double-stuffed ammo bags as your deployable if others on your team already have them doctor bags are also an option or vice versa Jack-of-all-trades was simply too expensive to be worth it in my opinion If you’re wondering and of course on heists where it’s beneficial a secondary saw is Recommended deposit boxes can be opened with a single tap of the trigger. Don’t hold it down really waste ammo Make sure you bring in Sindri grenades to deal with shields and Captain winters now that your grenade launcher isn’t an option if you’re using concussion grenades They’re a great tool for temporarily shutting down firefights for long enough to run to the objective reload or rescue a teammate Just try not to tag your self or friendlies with them too often now while the point of this build is simplicity I’d highly consider trying animation cancelling It’s a good trick both the uar and the combat grenade launcher will actually finish reloading before the animation Done thus you can start firing the swapping weapons or sprinting far earlier than the animation suggests for the you AR Ii the magazine is first insurgent is when you can start firing and for the compact? It’s as soon as the grenade is inserted into the launcher moving on Cloakers are probably your biggest concern as that can down you straight past your Swansong your best option is to kill them before they get the chance or stun them with your electrical brass knuckles Stick to cover as often as possible and only break when you have to or when assaults are winding down When push comes to shove swansong can carry you just around that corner, or let you take down that minigun dozer Or if you’re careful allow you to finish Repairing that drill and this is why I grabbed a basic hardware expert prior to the swansong nerf the skill lasted for nine seconds Repairing a drill by default takes 10 meaning you could start repairing a drill in a firefight and so long as you survived for at Least a second use Swansong to finish repairing now that swansong clocks in at 6 seconds the four seconds that you would need to stay alive is simply too long basic hardware expert cuts down the time it takes to make repairs to 7.5. Seconds meaning you’ll only need to live for a second and a half in order to use swansong 6 seconds of relative invincibility to Get the drill restarted and keep making progress now I doubt I have to lecture you on how inspire works But in case it wasn’t obvious you shouldn’t waste in spire on down teammates at point-blank range Things can go to hell faster than inspires charge can regenerate It’s better to manually revive teammates when there isn’t an immediate threat this build is a great option for all Difficulties including death sentence and on one down if you’ve opted for nine lives aced are there better specialized builds out there of course but your strengths may vary while a sniper or shotgun grinder or Dodge build may be superior the basic build will allow you to compete on higher difficulties without much in the way of Skill pick up a gun and start hoisting That’s really it, and if you aren’t infamy 5 there’s an infamy one version available in the description oh And if you liked the video I’d appreciate if you thought about subscribing that way you can check out the updated version in the Spillville And never really have to make when overkill besides to rebalance the game again. Thanks for watching and take it easy

    Wow, ten minutes and ONE second Connor? What, are you trying to make the most of your videos in order to afford food, rent, and equipment in order to keep making more videos? Sickening, unsubscribed.

  5. rische says:

    i just spam the galant with most mastermind skills to boost reload, damage, accuracy, etc.

  6. noblehippo says:

    how do you self heal? I feel like once you go down which is inevitable you are then handicapped. essentially dead when armor is gone once downed.

  15. trollkill1314 says:

    What about underdawg and jack of all trades?

  16. MEGANOB GUTZKRAKA says:

    been loving this build, helpin me alot in my heist. but if i may ask, could you look into making an LMG based build?

  17. Pixel says:

    I have a personal, go-to build i call marksman, it's a dodge build mixed with a few sniper skills, using a concealed falcon rifle, and china puff (sue me)
    I find playing it super fun especially on higher difficulties, running around popping helmets, it even works without infamy really well!

  18. Mübarek Geymır says:

    I am still waiting for the OP ICTV build for One Down.I am sick of using dodge.

  19. LewdProvider says:

    Are you going to update the One Down build?

  20. Rishi Panigrahi says:

    i made a build named the "human sentry" http://pd2tools.com/l/93dc172287ae64fd0b22b7f1e090bfbf i was hoping you could make a video on it

  21. Joe the thug says:

  27. Kamil Kruczek says:

  28. Sir Taladon says:

    why not use the union 5 rifle??

  29. Victor Cortelette says:

    quick question if someone can answer at what level do i get the max skill points?

  30. Blue Spinner says:

    4:03 "This is a Gage Specs Ops pack item!"

    "NO DLC"

  31. Too Few Secrets says:

    "It'll make loud heists easier on you and your team."
    Immediately wastes 28 points by taking both health and ammo skills
    Burns a point on Hardware Expert on a loud build, and Second Wind on an armor build, instead of buying Die Hard Basic with those two points, which will always make you tanky enough to fix a drill on DW and below (Survive for 4 seconds – which is "actually" 2 due to 50% DR, instead of surviving for 1.5 seconds – and gain 50% DR while doing any other action, as opposed to Expert which does nothing for non-drills).
    Uses LED Combo and Raptor Polymer in a non-DLC build – the latter of which is vital for a major breakpoint unless using Underdog Basic, which costs 1 skill point

    For anyone reading this – Multiple builds. Please. You don't want to put 9 points into ammo bags and 6 points into saws on a heist where you bring neither, that's over a tenth of your build literally thrown away. Also, if you're tryharding, forget Surefire and put those points into both stability skills, then take the free KSP (or the DLC one if you can – better mods), because it both hits many breakpoints and is just generally better than most ARs in the game, not to mention you don't need any ammo skills to keep it loaded. Also, you really, really want two Jokers on DS – and two Doctor Bags, while you're at it.

    Or just take dual Grimms with buckshot and Overkill Basic and melt everything in sight, your choice.

  32. Very Haha says:

    IFUREADTHISLUVU

  33. Macek says:

    Luv u too connor <3

  34. DatYTdude says:

    Too bad I use console and the only 40mm grenade launcher is the china puff

  35. JuustoBurgeri Pyörykkä says:

    What did Connor saw :DDD Boobs or a medicbag?

  36. WOLF LEGENDS says:

    thanx

  37. yesbutno says:

    you didnt put the drill skill in the no infamy build

  38. RoyaltyLock says:

    Too bad for the fugitive because I'm on PS3

  39. Windows 10 says:

    You should try this build: the "four-man-army" build. where you ace out entire controller tree, the engineer tree, and the ammo-specialist tree. have your deployables being primary – sentry gun, and secondary – suppressed sentry gun. that's 6 sentries and also 2 converted officers and it would be cool to have everyone on the team have the build because it stacks making there 4 players, 8 converted officers, and 24 sentry guns! that's 36 in total! Please consider it.

  40. Noah Sharp says:

    Why not a build for someone rank 50 and no infamy

  41. Wells Labbe says:

    Can you make a video on a loud build using dlc? Especially now with the UAR being outclassed by the Union 5.56

  42. Glenn D. says:

    why not include joker skills?

  43. SparkyTheFox says:

    CONNOR!!!!!!!!!!
    You can save one more skill point by acing the first tier skill, so obtaining swansong and joat costs one less skill point.

  44. SparkyTheFox says:

    havent played death sentence. ever. medicdozers sound like a nightmare,

  45. Boboodeen says:

    Iluvutoo

  46. Ros The Boss says:

    Connorshaw:prim-ary weapon. normal people:pri-mary weapon

  47. voltsy says:

    Tbh I've found if I run this build without swan song on mayhem with muscle i can grab jack of all trades. then i can be more of a help if shit hits the fan on hoxton breakout and I'm with a team who refuse to use key cards for the armoury and infamy and keep one for the escape as some people just refuse to listen to actual planning out.

  48. Donnie The Dragon says:

    Your build is broken, im lv 100 with 120 perk points and I cannot get the same perks

  49. That weird guy with a mask says:

    spec ops is not free

  50. Jaquintae Winnegan says:

    Do you use mods because u have almost every modification on weapons. LOL

  51. Strobiboi says:

    I got a build.

    GL40 modded for dodge, Compact 40mm, Katana. Max out the Brawler tree, and Yakuza. No specified armor ig

    Have fun.

  52. Unknown says:

    If u read this luv u?

  53. Çağatay Sunal says:

    Why UAR over union? I remember you saying that it is basically a better UAR.

  54. Gary Ojeda says:

    I know this is a bit late and all, but why do you say that a infamy below 5 version will be available? Don't we all have the same skill points?

  55. HappyPants filmmaker says:

    Can you make a video on a build with dlc

    Pry-Mary

    Not Pr-Im-ary

  62. Andre Hashimoto says:

    the skill points calculation is wrong for those without enough infamy levels to lower the SP requirements, i can't get fully loaded with the 120 points because all i have is a sigle infamy level

  68. __ says:

    Wetaminute, nine lives is not aced on high difficulty? You kidding me, right? I think it's better to take Nine Lives assed instead of Running From Death and that drill skill.

  69. I'M A LEMON says:

    I left the video at "primery weapon"

  70. Maddox Lloyd says:

  71. Davien McCarty says:

    If you're after Regen speed for armor, the Hitman perkdeck is not affected by suppression

  72. Billy Brekowski says:

    The way you pronounced 'primary' made me die.

  73. Carlos Lim says:

    Don’t worry Connor, I did not skip the ads 🙂

  74. Atomic Gaming says:

    When I get combat medic, painkillers, and combat doctor, I can't get inspire.

  75. Cecilia McDonald says:

    No this is not a good build

  76. Grayden Fastow says:

    at least he didn’t get silencer skills

  77. opbere gamequest says:

    ifureadthisiluvu.Anyone else see this?

  78. S o l a c e 慰め e d i t z says:

    PrImarie weapon

  79. Skyrim Load orders & More says:

    i swear i can make a no infamy version of this build (edit i realised theres already a site for it.) (also edit, my malwarebytes detected it as malware.)

  80. Skyrim Load orders & More says:

    Or if you want to not get an explosive secondary, go for the bronco with damage mods, or if your going for more accuracy, go for them.

  81. Unorthodox says:

    It's a good build, but I'd sub the UAR for the Buzzer LMG.. just me though

  82. Unbelie Chicken says:

    Would a standard SMG grinder build work for death sentence?

  83. AdamFra says:

    note: on situations like biker heist one down death sentence where things may get direr than dire, you can use point blank inspire

  84. wandering spirit says:

    Even more bonus points for having a pink flashlight

  85. Music and Game says:

    can be use AK-47?

  86. Michael Myers says:

    I like how every time you think there will be an ad, there isn't

  87. demon metal says:

    guess you could say it is a very INSPIRING build

  88. Green says:

    Here's a simple build idea. All drill skills plus whatever else you think is useful. I want to go drill/doctor but I'm only lvl 35 ;-;

  89. Noah Wilson says:

    I can't unlock inspire without acing combat medic. Can someone explain?

  90. Mid Knight says:

    Here’s a build to try the casual build

  100. Christian Rasmussen says:

    I thought I finally understood parts of the game and skills and such after 20 hours.
