Payday 3_01

Payday 3’s first major content update is live, adding two Legacy Heists from Payday 2 and numerous other features, like Infamy Points on completing Heists. However, update 1.0.2 also provides various fixes and improvements. The XP exploit in the 99 Boxes heist is gone, but now AI crew mates have 300 percent more HP, meaning more uptime.

Recommended Challenges are also available in the main menu and heist selection screen for guidance on what to do next. Furthermore, the update improves Xbox Series S performance, triples the opening rate of container doors and fixes various crashes. There’s also a 30-second custody timer for those who reconnect to a heist if downed or taken into custody.

Check out some of the patch notes below and full notes here. Payday 3 is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC. Its first paid DLC, Syntax Error, launches this month, so stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks.
