Quick Draw Solo [Achievement/Guide] [Payday 2]

“Quick Draw” “In the Panic Room job, kill all gangsters within 60 seconds after masking up on the OVERKILL difficulty
or above.” This is another achievement that is ported from Payday 1 (or Payday the Heist). But for today let’s look at the Payday 2 version, and also how to do it solo. Let’s study the requirements a little further. Basically, kill all gangsters, and that includes the ones behind the red
door (or vault room), which can only be accessed with Chavez’s key, so we’d have to kill him as well. Oh, the poor thing. Already robbed once by the Payday gang in Payday the Heist, and now he has to die. So on the Overkill difficulty, gangsters have 240 HP (or 40 head HP) and Chavez has 6000 HP (or 3000 head HP). Medium rifles and SMGs, or LMGs paired with Body Expertise will be able to one-shot gangsters in the
body but I prefer the LMG because I don’t have to reload as often. As for Chavez, like all other bosses, have a low headshot or crit multiplier of
2, so guns don’t work very well. Instead, what I use to take care of him quickly, is a melee setup. Pumping Iron (aced) and 6 Bloodthirst (basic)
charges allows us to one-shot him with a fully charged El Verdugo. Take that Chavez! Also for the groups of gangsters, an incendiary grenade works wonders. Just throw and forget. “Unknown Knight, you’re always using some trick. What is it this time?” Hah! You guys know me well. It actually isn’t much of a trick, just us making use of how the map works. See, in the building there are closed off
rooms, which has gangsters kicking open the door
and rushing out. These are on the 2nd, 3rd, sometimes 4th and then 5th floor, which has two of these rooms. The first thing is that Chavez will spawn
randomly in one of these rooms, starting from the 3rd floor. Hmm look at him, going crazy from snorting too much coke. He can’t even hold a gun properly. And the second thing, is that these rooms only spawn gangsters when a player gets close, like magically. So combine both of these two information together, and this is what we have. If we can find Chavez early, like on the 3rd floor, we don’t have to go up to the 4th and 5th
floors, which also means less gangsters to kill for the achievement. Of course, after clearing the vault room, if the achievement hasn’t unlocked, do check upstairs for any stray gangsters
left, but try not to trigger the closed rooms, especially the two on the 5th floor. Other than that, here are a few gangsters that we need to watch
out for, as they might not move far from their original
position and cause the achievement to fail. The first is the gangster sitting on the car immediately in front of where we start. Then there’s one or two gangsters behind the counter near the first floor main
entrance. The next one is the balcony outside the coke
room. If any of the doors are open, the gangsters tend to go to the balcony and hang around there. And the last is this lone gangster in the
room opposite the red door or vault room. So do make sure to take them out. And on to the strategy. A multiplayer strategy is pretty straightforward. Just split up and clear each area while sealing
off their escapes, like having one player going up the main stairs while another starts from the outside, then going up to the balcony and then into the coke room. Then clear upwards into the 3rd floor until Chavez is found and then finally, the vault room. Multiple players/bots are definitely recommended as the gangsters don’t increase with more
players. Converts, obviously don’t work since cops don’t spawn at this point of the
game. How about solo? Going solo is the same, except that we have to make sure we clear and secure each area so that we don’t have to come back. For solo, bots are a plus but it’s definitely possible to do without
them. And one of the key equipment we can bring
for a solo run, are sentries. However, we may have to depend a little bit more on
RNG. I usually restart until I get this scenario: no gangster sitting on the car at the start and also no ambush on the outside, since they just complicate matters. So my plan is to start in the lobby and kill off the gangsters behind the counter. Then I drop a sentry gun so that all enemies coming down to the first
floor will be taken care of. I then head outside to kill the 3 gangsters and to drop a sentry. At this point, if the balcony doors are open, I’ll head into the coke room and drop a sentry
there, then out to the 2nd floor to drop another
sentry. I then clear out the closed room with an incendiary
grenade. If the balcony doors are closed instead I’ll just go back in to use the main stairs. So up to this point, we’d have secured up to the 2nd floor. Then at the 3rd floor, I’ll drop a sentry and then clear the closed room with an incendiary
grenade. Again, we have to take out that gangster in the room opposite the red door before we head to the 4th floor. Then from here, we just do the same. Drop a sentry, clear the closed room, head up, and repeat. Once we get the key from Chavez, we’ll clear the vault room and if the achievement still hasn’t unlocked, we check for any stray gangsters left. So that’s it for this achievement. Hope this has been helpful, especially for players who either prefer to, or have to go solo. Two gameplays are coming right up, a short run where Chavez is on the 3rd floor, and another where Chavez is in the last closed
room on the 5th floor. Have fun watching, and I’ll see you guys in the next video.

    You're the only YouTuber I know who utilizes the power of Bloodthirst to deal with particularly tough enemies, I've used it as a means to deal with Dozers for some time now.
