Payday 2 DLC adds more shotguns and monkey masks


Gage Shotgun Pack
Jul 07
Payday 2 has its seventh bit of DLC, the Gage Shotgun Pack. In it you'll find four masks, patterns, materials, melee weapons, and shotguns. Twelve achievements, too.  Call me old school, but I don't feel compelled to drop five bucks on a few new guns, patterns, masks, and melee weapons. Not when the existing ones work just fine. Adding new heists is one thing. This? Not a fan. read

Jimquisition happens every Monday!
Payday 2 is a success, because the people making and publishing it weren't completely stupid. What sorcery is this?

Terrible things. read feature
