(PRE REBALANCE) Here’s a build to try: The Free Build. [PAYDAY 2]

Here’s a build to try: The Free Build. Previously, I made a build called The Good Build, that was designed to carry you and your team to victory using very meta weapons and perks. However, that build required the use of a nice bit of DLC. I know there are plenty of players out there who—for one reason or another—don’t own any DLC. So I think it’s only fair that I make a variant on The Good Build that doesn’t require the use of any DLC. This was actually much harder to do than I expected. However, I believe this build will serve any player looking to beat any heist—on most difficulties, that is—quite well. Let’s check it out! In Mastermind, at the Medic tree, I get basic Combat Medic, and then ace Quick Fix, Combat Doctor, and Inspire. Just like before, Inspire is a very powerful skill that any team oriented build must have. Moving over to Enforcer, under Tank, I’ve aced Resilience, Transporter, Shock and Awe, and Iron Man. The usual armor stuff, and aced Shock and Awe will allow me to deal with shields easily, considering I can’t have a grenade launcher in this build. After that, I drop by Ammo Specialist, and get basic Scavenger, and then ace Bulletstorm, Extra Lead, and Fully Loaded. While this build won’t be getting Jack Of All Trades, I still want both deployables aced so I can bring what the team needs. And besides, Fully Loaded aced means I can indefinitely refresh my throwables, which will be quite useful. In Technichian, under Oppressor, I get basic Steady Grip, Fire Control, and Surefire. Those extra 15 bullets are absolutely crucial when considering what weapons I’ll bring in this build. In Ghost, under Artful Dodger, I—of course—get basic Duck And Cover and Parkour. Also in Ghost, in Silent Killer, I get basic Second Wind and The Professional, and aced Specialized Killing. I won’t be needing the extra accuracy from aced Professional, I just wanted the 30% damage bonus. Finally, in Fugitive, under Revenant, I spend the minimum amount of points to get aced Swan Song. This skill has pretty much become a staple of any good build, hasn’t it? 9 seconds of infinite ammo and a chance to get into cover every time you die sounds good to me. For perks, I’ll be using Armorer. I did a lot of back-and-forth, considering if this build should use Muscle for the HP regen, or Armorer for the big defense boost. In the end, especially considering using silenced weapons negates the effect of Muscle’s Disturbing the Peace, I decided Armorer was for the best. Moving on to weapons, for my primary I’ll be using the M308. This is a very powerful weapon, with or without DLC, and I’ve modded it as such: The Bigger the Better Supressor A stability boost The LED Combo Any sight of choice The Jaegar Body and a Scope Mount. Technically, since the accuracy is already maxed out, the Scope Mount is optional, but I think it makes the sights on this weapon far better. For my secondary, I’m using the Krinkov, modded like this: The Bigger the Better Suppressor An accuracy boost The Moscow Special Rail The LED Combo Any sight of choice and the Wooden Sniper Stock. Infuriatingly enough, most of the good mods for the Krinkov are locked behind DLC. Still, the damage is pretty high, and thanks to Fully Loaded aced, the ammo efficiency is quite servicable. For melee, I’m bringing the Electrical Brass Knuckles to stun enemies. And finally, for throwables, I’m using the HEF Grenade. So, how does this build work? Well, unlike the variant of this build that uses DLC, you’re going to have to be quite cautious. Without Kingpin to save you from dying out in the open, you’ll need to stick to cover most of the time. The Krinkov works fine on full auto to deal with weaker enemies, just be cautious around Tasers. Once you notice more special enemies in the area, swap to the M308 and start popping heads in single fire mode. The only times I’d recommend swapping to full auto for the M308 is to kill Dozers up close or in Swan Song. If Shields are giving you trouble, you can simply shoot them a few times to stagger them and get a clean shot. Don’t be afraid to throw the occasional grenade too, as with Fully Loaded aced, you can pick them back up from ammo boxes. Although, it will usually take quite a few. Captain Winters can be a little bit of a challenge, hopefully your grenades should be enough to deal with him. If you’re low on health, unfortunately this build doesn’t have any health regen, so you’ll be looking to find a First Aid Kit. Speaking of, when a heist is starting, be sure to check what deployables your team has, and bring either Doctor Bags or Ammo Bags respectively. This build will work on all difficulties, except One Down. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to spare the points for aced Nine Lives, and besides, this build’s skills are already stretched pretty thin. In the future, I’ll be making builds designed specifically for One Down, and—just like I did with The Good Build— There will a version with, and one without DLC. Regardless, this build can carry you and your team to victory, even without DLC. Thanks for watching, and take it easy. i hope you as a viewer/reader are thankful for these captions if not thats fine its just that I would appreciate at least a light pat on the back if you could spare one, maybe a sticker if you really think i deserve it, but anyways, i believe that they should have never changed Hitman, i loved having less armor, very deathwish viable, now it is trash, being able to regen armor in 1.5 seconds pssssh thats lame, now Crew Chief is the absolute best perk deck, lets hope it doesnt get ruined like Hitman did, stop reading this it is very pointless

  64. Victor Skånberg says:

    Why ace Iron Man if you're not gonna use the improved combined tactical vest?

  65. Davzviet says:

    Here's how I would make it One down viable I would get basic shock and awe and basic bullseye because I could use the 57 AP pistol and we also have aced fully loaded I think the 57 was not out at this time but yeah and aced nine lives

  66. [YT] NovaBound says:

    Make a medieval build… with all medieval weapons

  67. [YT] NovaBound says:

    Xbox 360 has Leaked free DLCs for almost all games ;3

  68. Austin's Corner says:


  69. Americunt says:

    says no DLC immediately applies something from the Butcher Mod Pack

  70. DaniDay22 says:

    "The Free Build, No DLC needed!" However he DOES uses mods from the Butchers AK/CAR mod pack… (Spotted it when the weapons were becoming moded)

  71. Boye says:

    "The Free Build!" Uses DLC Attatchments

  72. furry fury says:

    There is an saw easteregg on the potablesaw is writen ove9000 then you have an anime dragonbals Z and theres the same thing were a character shouts out loud: my powers are. Over 9000 so thats pretty wierd

  73. Василий Яковлев says:

    can we have 2.0 version? there is more free stuff and buffs that can help on high dificulties

  74. Felix The Great says:

    The ending, tho

  75. Алексей Кадыров says:

    Hello. I heard that OVKL has added brand new gredane laucher FOR FREE, so what do you think about it? Will it free points from Shock and Awe to Nine Lives aced? try it at some time and wrie back, id you read it.

  76. feverflowinacacoon says:

    I'm planning to use this build once I get enought skill points.

    (Also, I have to aced Combat Medic so I can get aced Inspire)

  77. Gorun Nova says:

    As it is a year later, several patches, and the full release of PAYDAY 2: Ultimate Edition. Would you mind updating The Stealth build, a newer version of this build, and your Sniper build please. Thanks CS ^.^

  78. MrDeun says:

    Well, now we have FREE Grenade Launcher for secondary, so i prefer aced bullseye

  79. Bandit says:

    The scope mount and the LED combo are DLC, you can even see it in the vid. Still nice vid tho

  80. Alex & Ben Gaming says:

    Pls make a build for crime spree like a speed build

  81. SparkyTheFox says:

    There is no point acing 2 deployables if ur not getting joat. just change the skillset, and spend the skill points on something else.

  82. Hudra says:

    How the fuck do you even buy Payday 2 with no dlc on Steam? (After Ultimate Edition btw)

  83. rische says:

    Try the AMR, but only use it semi automatic. Mod it right and use the right skills, you can get 104 damage on the AMR with a fairly high accuracy. Fully Loaded recommended because the ammo pickup is terrible.

  84. david6412 says:

    free grenade launcher.

  85. Sondey_ says:
