The Insane Real Life Cost Of Payday 3's Road Rage

Intro

Intro

Launching this past week, Bang Payday 3 promises to elevate adrenaline and chaos. I found myself immersed in the exhilarating universe of Payday 3. Since the game intricately calculates the loss of hostages, we'll concentrate our investigation on the physical damages, employing meticulously researched internet averages to piece together a picture of the financial fallout.

Gear up and strap in as we delve deep into the chaotic aftermath and uncover the true cost of a high-octane payday.

Experiment parameters

Experiment parameters

The first thing we need to do is define the parameters of this experiment. To keep things simple, let's assume the entire bridge is one long crime scene. Furthermore, we know that Payday 3 is set in its own version of New York City, meaning we can get a decent estimate of local New York prices to factor in for services such as CSI cleanup, window repair insurance, etc.

Lastly, this heist was played on normal difficulty and played exactly how I would play it on any given day, meaning I did not make any effort to avoid doing damage. Consider this to be your control variable, so without further ado , let's get into the numbers.

The numbers

We're starting off strong with two civilians experiencing trauma being held at gunpoint by mass Marauders.

Assuming 6 months of therapy at $200 per session twice a month, that's about $4,800.

Emp/ecu overview

Emp/ecu overview

Your goal is to stop an armored truck in its tracks using something called an EMP device. EMP stands for electromagnetic. In simple terms, a large amount of energy is dispersed rapidly using a detonator, which could be done with a capacitor dumping all of its contained energy through a coil of wire and then being shorted out by an explosion, which would in turn generate a strong but brief electromagnetic field.

For those of you who remember high school science or messed around with magnets as kids, you understand the power a magnet can have on electronics. I think it's safe to say it would be scrapped and a new one would be needed. Therefore, 800,000 was added to our total. Now let's get back to.

The numbers (cont.)

The numbers (cont.)

Here's some additional civilian trauma, so another $4,800. As promised, we're factoring in the cost of each human life at about $10 million, plus we're including an extra $5, 000 for having to scale a lighthouse to retrieve that policeman's body, another $10 million, plus another $10, and the build just keeps going up.

I'm not funny. I'm just honest. That works i mean, I have news for you. Meow, meow i think that's called autism. When people think you're funny and you're just being real, that's autism. I would know the cost of introducing a viewer to the concept of being a neurode. Divergent Priceless another 10 million, and also a new crime scene $5, 000.

I might have messed up. Actually, do we do it, please? It's work is it working? The cost of accidentally defying physics is also priceless. Another hostage experiencing PTSD (2400), a new crime scene plus two dead cops—that's 20 million in change—and a few more cops Kobe now, because of what we covered earlier regarding EMP usage on this vehicle.

I think it's safe to say it's ruined anyway, so I won't be factoring in any damages done by this drill. The loot on board, however, will be factored in at the end and also covered in more detail in, I'm sorry, 30 million, or maybe 70 million, and another 10 million.

My beef w/the devs

My beef w/the devs

Okay, now that we've reached the end of The Heist, here's where I have some beef with the developers. I counted at least three stacks of cash about this size in that armored car, all of which showed Ben Franklin's mil-loving face on the tops of each stack.

If you're like me, you might wonder what a million dollars in cash looks like. Well, Bloomberg has the answer. Also, a gold band is typically used for stacks equaling $10, 000. It comes out to 1.2 million now. Let's look at the total damages we did, and maybe it'll all make.

Grand totals

Grand totals

Well, doing 190 million in damages plus traumatizing families for years to come and likely becoming the most wanted crew on the planet, but still, walking away with 600,000 doesn't seem so bad, even if the numbers don't add up.
