What’s new in Day 5 of Spring Break 2018? [PAYDAY 2]


What’s new in Day 5 of Spring Break 2018? …far more than I think any of us were expecting! Okay, okay, first things first: a brand new weapon! This shoulder-mounted monstrosity goes only by the XL 5.56 Microgun. That’s right, another minigun of sorts has been added to compete with the Vulcan from the Overkill weapon pack. It’s fair to compare these weapons because they serve very similar functions. Overall, however, they don’t differ all that much. You’re sacrificing 1000 RPM for 10 extra damage, and…that’s just about it. In my experience, they both felt very similar. They can even both be concealed enough for dodge crit bulids. It feels like a KSP 58 vs. KSP situation. The weapons are near identical in practice: one is simply free and…one isn’t. That’s by no means a bad thing though, as in my personal opinion the XL Microgun is superior purely from an aesthetic perspective. Look at this absurd hunk of metal, it’s terrifying in all regards! …and one could argue that while it may output bullets slower relatively speaking, that’s actually an advantage against tasers. You won’t run dry in your mag quite as quickly as you would with the Vulcan. Regardless, players who do not own Ultimate Edition now have a mini…? …microgun, even to play around with! In addition to the XL 5.56 we have an ABSURD addition to the akimbo roster. 30 “NEW” akimbo weapons were added! Yes, 30! You can now dual-wield the following guns: (oh boy) GRUBER KURZ SIG 40 LEO BROOMSTICK WHITE STREAK BABY DEAG PARABELLUM BRONCO MATEVER STRYK AUTO PISTOL MICRO UZI MACRO UZI PATCHETT CMP COBRA BLASTER 9mm PARA KOBUS 90 JACKET’S PIECE SPECOPS MARK 10 CHICAGO TYPEWRITER KROSS VERTEX JACKAL CR805B TATANTATANTANKAH GARBAGE HOT GARBAGE COLD GARBAGE AND THE JUDGE SHOOTING GUN! *phew* (yes, indeed) I honestly do NOT have time to go over every single weapon in detail, but my personal favourites are the Judges and Broncos. I love me some wrist-breaking dual revolver action. Now, this is all fantastic and I love akimbos, but here’s the kicker: they’re all broken as hell. The fire rates of the STRYKs and Jacket’s Piece…’s are beyond comprehension, and the magazine extension upgrades incorrectly apply for revolvers and (very notably) for the Judge, leading to the akimbo Judges having 40 mag capacity! This will likely all be addressed, but here’s a more fascinating quirk: Akimbo variants of DLC weapons are available for free, regardless of your DLC roster. According to OVERKILL_Jules in my stream chat, this is entirely intentional, which I…I mean…okay? So, if you don’t own the Jacket character pack for instance you can’t use Jacket’s Piece. However, you CAN use the akimbo version. It seems like an odd choice. Normally I wouldn’t complain about more free content being added, but it’s just weird! There’s only a DLC gauge for the single variants of weapons but not for akimbo variants. Am I alone in thinking that’s just strange? I don’t know, let me know what you think in the comments below. Next up: Four new dog masks have been added. We have: Boxey. Crazy Lou, Frou Frou and Klaus. I mean, they’re dogs! Dogs are nice. I honestly don’t really care, but hey, it’s more free cosmetics. Speaking of: New customisation options for masks have been added. 49 new patterns, 33 new materials and 100 new colors! Players will get 11 “pats” 10 “mats” and 21…uh, color spats (cats?) for free upon launching as well as a guaranteed copy of the Salaminati pattern…and the rest can be earned through paydays. More customisation is always nice, even if I personally won’t be getting involved: I’m already happy with the masks I have. Other than that several achievements were fixed to correctly trigger when they ought to, places where players, bags or hostages could get stuck in various maps were removed, and…that’s just about everything. A relatively short video compared to the large amount of content, but if I went into detail about each and every akimbo weapon and customisation we’d be here all day, and seeing as they’re all seemingly intentionally free you can just try them out for yourself! Tomorrow is the last off day, but after that will be the final and hopefully biggest day. Hope to see you there and make sure to subscribe if you want to catch my video on it. Thanks for watching and take it easy!

  8. voltsy says:

    Akimbo stryk looks cool.

    Hopefully it's also practical

  9. SokWubz says:

    I cant try for myself, the last spring break broke my game, i cant get into payday anymore, i just click play and then nothing happens, on steam, appears "ingame" for a few seconds, then the game dont start up

  10. Alanos says:

    Pretty sure more than half of the new akimbos were already created as mods.

  11. Lucas Guzzi says:

    AKIMBO JACKET YEEESSSS

  12. Spearka says:

    Akimbo STRYK >>>>All other weapons

  13. Callsign Exerion says:

    To be honest even if it's quite weird I can sorta see their logic behind it, for two reasons.
    1. Akimbo and single variants of weapons handle pretty different, and
    2. Akimbos are primaries while the single weapons are secondaries, thus they have different roles

  14. Random Person says:

    BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL OH GOD IT'S BEAUTIFUL

  15. RJ says:

    the down side of the akimbo weapons is that if you don't have the dlc you can't use the dlc specific attachments

  16. That Fuck Tonnato says:

    Update sucks
    first you make Overkill pack completely useless by adding a minigun
    and Commando already is a better RPG
    And you add 30 broken akimbos
    WHO NEEDED FUCKING AKIMBOS UNLESS TO ROLEPLAY MAX PAYNE
    EVEN THEN JUST PLAY MAX PAYNE 1 and 2
    or 3

  17. Wolf-E says:

    Ho le fuk

  22. TheTSense says:

    They said no more paid DLC.
    Yeah it's not really paid DLC, but if they add something today that has any kind of money lock, the forums will burn again. I guess the scars from Crimefest15 are still hurting Almir.

    Good, mine do too

  23. Fluks says:

    Didn't they say that all DLC after the H3H3 one are gonna be free? Maybe they were thinking every single thing after it is free as in every update with weapons as well so that's why the akimbo's are free.

  24. Spooky Da Scary says:

    Oh fuck im gonna reinstall payday

  25. Uni Saurus says:

    This minigun looks like a cheap knockoff from the shoulder mounted machinegun from fallout new vegas

  26. Barnabás Molnár says:

    I hope the last day will be better.

  27. Zany200 says:

    I love how at the start the swan song stopped you from using your ammo with 420 left in the belt

  28. Gamerdude0072 says:

  37. Erik S says:

    I've not played Payday 2 for about a year,guess i'm missing out on a lot of goodies

  38. Kool Kyurem25 says:

    Just when I thought you couldn't blare Another One Notes the Dust loud enough before. Akimbo judges and Tommy guns and a free microgun. "Fuck you taser!" Jimmy you have never been more right in your life

  39. Perry Martin says:

    Suddenly 10 pages of gun slots isn't enough. Though I must admit, I had tons of fun naming all my akimbo weapons. All the Call of Duty Zombies Pack a Punch references…bliss!

  40. Metrack says:

    40 bullets judge revolver.

    Y.E.S

  41. Elias Sanchez says:

    Only long video

  42. Ryan Elgie says:

    Personally I'm happy with these akimbos being all free

  43. NemesisWesker says:

    Ok since no one says it ill do it, the akimbo Jackal mag modifications are inverted, extended mags give you +2 concealment whereas short mags take -2 concealment

  44. Vuntedum says:

    "and if that don't work? use more guns."

  45. Bacon Volcano says:

    tatatatatonka

  49. maybeDOS says:

    I didn't want another mini gun -_- first one was boring anyways.

  50. ok.exe has stopped working says:

    Immagine silencer skills on the minigun

  51. lolwhat didyousay says:

    Okay, Idk what your deal is. The new Free Akimbo stuff is Great! It makes the game easier for Free 2 Plays. Yes it seems weird to a Pay to Play player, but try to think as if you're a person who got the base game with no DLC, no DLC is a complete nightmare! (im p2p myself)

  52. vio David says:

    The micro minigun reminds me of the shoder mounted machinegun from Fallout new Vegas

  53. FebreezyXD says:

    PAYDAY VR just got so much better

  54. Tuna cakes says:

    O my godddd

  55. Reubn says:

    Nah. This is honestly fucking retarded. I pay for overkill pack (now a gun comparable or maybe even better than the minigun) I pay for multiple weapon packs (FREEBIES CAN. NOW USE THEM) what have they done 🙁

  56. Daniel Kurniawan says:

    #REINSTALLPAYDAY2

  57. Hybridchicken04 Gaming says:

  58. Paydayonline 2569 says:

    Bronco/Judges= Wristbreakin-auto guns that dont lack on speed and still pack a punch

    (Btw stryk auto pistols are for pussys only)

  59. Greedy Gamer says:

    ffs overkill update consoles

  60. Vinh Quang Hoang says:

    Most akimbo guns from dlc is kinda hard to work with since they dont come with dlc mods for the gun itself. Accept the Judge, it's fking awesome. This is for the payday 2 version receive for free btw.

  61. KidGamingEXTREME 03692 says:

    I need to go get a WiFi adapter

  62. 이루다 says:

  63. TheAnimeCommunist says:

    Why can't console users get stuff like this it's like we're stuck back in 2016 for payday content I hope we get something from them soon:/

  64. Pred Predowski says:

  65. CharSFM [Animator] says:

    They should keep the extended mag revolvers, just modify the cylinder and put in a chain of bullets

  66. knoi says:

    Theres no no mercy? well thats sad 🙁

  67. 건김 says:

  80. Blastroide says:

    did you just called the akimbo goliath's garbage..?
    unsubbed.

  81. Roy Earle says:

    to be fair, adding the new akimbo weapons of dlc variants to the paywall during a free event is just as wierd…
    besides, they said there will be no more paid content. they're just keeping that promise

  82. Sweet guitar solo says:

    Still sad about no console DLC.
