How do body bags work? [PAYDAY 2]

How do body bags and their cases work? This is the sixth video in my series on how all of the equipment in Payday 2 works, you can check out my previous video About tripmines and shaped charges by clicking the button up in the corner. So moving on to the ghost tree under the Shinobi Branch We have body bag cases you get a single one of these by default, and can carry a second one by acing cleaner. Body bag cases are placed and used in the same fashion as doctor or ammo bags. But, instead refund body bags to the player so in order to know how the equipment works You’ll need to understand how body bags Themselves work body bags are utility available to all players by holding the tab Key you can see how many body bags you currently have by default you get a single one and can carry up to two Getting basic cleaner will spawn you into heists with two body bags and allow you to carry up to three body bags are used near exclusively in stealth to dispose of corpses whether it be a dead civilian or Guard the latter requires that the guards pager has been answered first there are exceptions to this such as the guards on Nightclub Or outside on Scarface Mansion who do not have pagers at all upon bagging them you can now carry the corpses around body bags will slow you down by 25% of your max movement speed and halt your ability to Sprint, this matches the movement speeds for bags of gold weapons and so on. The main reason one would want to bag a body is to hide it and many stealth heists are built with this in mind there Are alleyways corners and generally out-of-the-way places where a body bag can be safely stashed. More often than not, stealth heists will have dumpsters that can be opened up to toss a body bag into and Certain Ice-t’s will have cliffs or deep water which can be used to permanently Dispose of the evidence if you have the Burglar Perk Deck equipped and leveled up sufficiently you can bag corpses 20% faster when combined with Burglar’s 10% faster pager answering those precious moments can make the difference between being detected or remaining unseen Body bags are the only way to move Any reasonable distance after they’ve become alerted in certain cases a suppressed shotgun can be used to launch a guard out of view, where their corpse can remain “unbagged” and Undisturbed, as for civilians. They can instead be zip-tied and led to a safe location However, this can prove dangerous and time-consuming as civvies tend to have a bit of trouble following basic Paths so many players opt to kill the civilian and bag them getting them out of sight far more quickly and safely Body bags left out in the open or in a poor hiding spot can be spotted from 19 Meters away. Just over double the range of “Inspire” This is fairly far, however is preferable to the 25 meters and “unbagged”, unobscured corpse can be observed from, not to mention corpses are detected far more quickly than body bags, a guard that stumbles across the body bag will try to call it in and Civilians will become Alerted run off and attempt to phone the police, if a heist goes loud body bags become all but, useless you can no longer Dispose of bodies as you’d have no reason to anyways any bagged up corpses will remain but Unsurprisingly are worthless if brought to the escape at the time of this video’s release however there is a single heist where body bags are not just useful, but mandatory and loud on boiling point test subjects inside of Aiken’s Laboratory must be bagged up and brought to the scanner. These body bags Don’t follow the usual rules you get an unlimited supply and are only able to bag those test subjects So you won’t be needing any body bag cases Speaking of, as I said with aced Cleaner you get two body bag cases, which could be placed like most other Equipment, guards and cameras will be oblivious to body bag cases But remember not to body bags themselves each body bag case contains three body bags And it’s very easy to tell at a glance How many bags are left to grab, the main reason to bring body bag cases is for Stealth heists Where you expect things to get messy, heists with a lot of guards and civilians, such as a Bomb Dockyard or Less or heist are made far easier with an ample supply Of body bags, on the other hand you may find other stealth jobs Bank Heist Or Jewelry Store will not require body bag pieces at all, at least beyond those granted Via pre-planning That’s right body bag cases can also be bought as assets on nearly all stealth heists however it requires ownership of aced Sixth Sense on stealth heists with the standard asset system a single body bag case can be purchased however on heists with full-blown Pre-planning such as Shadow Raid, two body bag cases can be acquired and placed in various locations All of this means body bag cases aren’t what I’d consider the most useful type of equipment seeing as ECM Jammers are typically a far more versatile stealth utility despite this I Frequently bring body bag cases as a secondary by means of the Jack-of-All-Trades skill I’ll talk in length about Jack-of-All-Trades in a later video however in the meantime you can check out my stealth build video to get an idea of a good way to Use body bags. To summarize minimal or even no skill investment is required to get use out of body bags and their cases in Stealth bagging corpses is a vital tool in your kit and map knowledge of where to hide them will serve you well Just be sure you’re not Sacrificing a far more useful piece of equipment to bring spare body bags that you may not end up even needing join me next time When I’ll touch on ECM Jammers. Thanks for watching and take it easy

  36. Slizayoish ! says:

    Payday 2 is kinda stupid.
    Why would you put a body in a bag if a guard can spot the bag without cheking inside it?
    At this point you should just carry the body on your back,no need to take some bags with you.

  37. Mano says:

    Here's a drinking game you should try: Take a shot every time he says body bag

  38. Meat says:

  40. johnyF says:

    Can I use silencer skills with body bags?

  41. Wimpy Banana says:

    An interesting thing I learned from a Gen badass video is you dont have to waste body bags on civies, just hostage them and put their head through the wall, then they're practically invisible.

  42. Grumpy Ian says:

    something not many people know is if you have a body's head covered nothing will be alerted by it. (same with civs)

  43. Gibson Fender says:

    In alot of heists I play on dumbsters can't be opened though

  44. Lighting Chaos says:

    Connor, how about you explain how game mechanics work?
    Certain perk deck effects? Dodge/crits? Jokers?

    Because in my about 4 years of Paydaying. I still don't know the math of crits and dodge. It's a goddamn mystery.

  45. Rockymountain says:

  51. Tox says:

    You put a case down, make sure its full of bags, grab one and done.

  52. Pepijn 15 says:

    In Hotline Miami Day 1 there's a small chance (I don't know if it still happens) that a body bag will spawn in one of the car trunks, this has no use unfortunately.

  53. Kids News Channel says:

    On Xbox without live you have unlimited supplies of body bags

  54. Ender Gamer98 says:

  55. John Peacekeeper says:

    At first, I wondered why we don't just drag the bodies around, then Raid WWII came out and while we can drag bodies around indefinitely, I found you can neither use your weapon nor move around quickly.

    It's the fucking strap on the body bags that make them so valuable.

  75. CuriousCoffee says:

    How does the Armor Bag work?
    This is my seventh video in my series about how the equipment in Payday 2 works. Now, this deployable is interesting. It does not require any skill investment to function, but rather that you have reached the sixth tier in whatever Perk Deck you're using. Doing this will grant you the Armor Bag. The Armor Bag also varies from other deployables in the sense that you cannot place it, and it is consumed after holding down 'g' (Or whatever your deployable button is.). How the Armor Bag works is fascinating. If you equip the ICTV and spawn into the heist, you'll automatically be wearing the Two-Piece Suit. In your deployable slot, you'll see the Armor Bag. It has one use, and it will allow you to equip whatever armor you had previously equipped. That's it. The Armor Bag does not offer any long-term benefits, aside from allowing the player to don armor. So, when should you use the Armor Bag.
    Never. Thanks for watching, and take it easy.
    snazzy outro

    There, when do I get hired to write your scripts there, Connor?

  76. Carl Johnson says:

  78. Kalazakan says:

    Why do you inflect almost every word?

  79. Robert Marks says:
