[Payday 2] 5 Tips For Building the Best Bot (AI) Heisters

Before any other players join your lobby,
or if you’ve decided to play solo, you’re going to have three bot heisters helping you
throughout your heist. Once upon a time you only got two and they
were total garbage, but after multiple updates Overkill have granted AI heisters their own
skills and the ability to wield most guns in the game. Today, we’re covering 5 Tips For Optimising
Your Bot Heisters Starting with #1, the three best guns to give
bots are the Steakout shotgun, the Brenner light-machine gun and the r93 Sniper rifle. Don’t feel like you have to give exactly one
of those to each bot, as the Steakout is better at close-quarter, cramped maps like Panic
Room, whereas the r93 is better at maps with long sightlines like Hoxton Breakout. Some people also prefer the Mosconi over the
Steakout for dealing the most damage per shot of the shotguns. Number 2, While most people have figured out
that bot Inspire is an insanely useful skill for the bots to carry, a lot of people overlook
the skill that increases your interaction speed for every bot on the team. Restarting drills and picking locks can get
really tedious, and it’s also the only skill that helps in Stealth since it affects how
quickly you answer pagers. Honestly, I’d rank the interaction skill above
the Inspire skill since it’s constantly helping you throughout a heist, not just when you
go down. Number 3, in a similar vein, I consider the
most useful Crew Boost to be the one that gives you a 50% faster reload speed and weapon
switch on all your guns. Reloading is when you’re at your most vulnerable
in a firefight, and quicker reloads for the whole team leads to an overall higher damage
output for the entire heist. Especially if anyone’s using guns that otherwise
reload very slowly. Number 4, while most people know that you
can throw bags at an AI heister to get them to pick them up, it’s less well-known that
you can order bots to hold position. Simply look at a bot and press Z to order
them to stand their ground until you shout at them later. Number 5, Whatever your favorite crew boost
and bot skill are, make sure you stick them on the bot standing furthest to the left in
the Crew Management menu. That will be the last bot replaced by a player
when the server fills up, and the first bot to reappear whenever somebody leaves the server
and their slot opens up. Finally, bonus Number 6 is a fun fact: Dallas
and Houston by default wield AK rifles, whereas everyone else wields Car-4’s. If you’ve just started playing Payday and
haven’t unlocked any guns, you should pick these two for your team since their guns actually
deal more damage than the other bots. Thanks for being patient waiting for a new
video, this is aabicus with the SPUF of Legend, keep those helmets flying!
