Tips & Secrets You Probably Didn't Know Payday 3

Intro

Intro

Payday 3 just released, and I'm sure we've all been playing the hell out of it well whenever the servers are down exploring, every nook and cranny building up new strategies, or simply discovering little secrets. Today I want to showcase all my findings on each heist in the game so far, whether it's a simple Easter egg hidden loot or a life-saving tip.

Let's start with the very first.

No rest for the wicked

Well, considering a gang history with a certain dentist, this has to be an homage to Giancarlo Esposito's character, reminding us that even if he's gone, his actions are still very important for the story. In case you've missed them during the beta, the bank is not holding cash just in the vault but also in the three saves located behind the bank teller desk inside the manager's office and in the room next to the office workers on the second floor. Now on to the next one,.

Road rage

Unfortunately, I couldn't really find anything too interesting in the environment. However, I can give you a heads-up that might save you the trouble of running back and forth. The EMP you're going to need is always going to be in the crate right in front of you whenever you spawn, so don't forget to pick it up, and while you're on the way to the objective, make sure to set up the path for the armored truck to pass undisturbed by placing the wheel ramps over the gaps and moving any forklift in the way.

This way, you won't have to worry about doing it while you're surrounded by cops and can fully concentrate on making more early retirements. Lastly, the game will give you the option to light a flare on the street to signal a pickup zone for bile. However. I strongly recommend that before you do, make sure you've scanned all of the jewelry and you've moved them to the extraction zone because the helicopter won't stay there forever, and if you don't manage to escape before he leaves, you'll have to do some more waiting and have to carry the remaining loot all the way until the Riverside.

Trust me, you want to take the easy way out. Alright, what's next?.

Rock the cradle

Visually speaking, this has to be my favorite-looking heist. It also has the best stealth objective, which can be discovered with some simple exploration, but it's definitely worth mentioning. To access the VIP area, you're going to need to lift a key card from the bouncer; however, you'll always be posted in his position to lure him out to a much more discreet spot.

You're going to need a distraction. You're going to have to reach the second floor tamper with the speakers on the railing, move the DJ away from the control, and upload your Spotify playlist. If you do all of the steps correctly, Banger will play. If you manage to recover from that big tune, you might have enjoyed mowing down an army or police units inside the flashy disco while collecting valuables all over a building.

You probably made sure to empty the vault with its money and grab all the Coke in the boxes, but you might still be missing some bags. I highly recommend you check out the second-floor lounge rooms, as they hold four sneaky paintings you can stash for cash. As a little bonus in the downstairs bar, there is a wall full of stickers; one of them is a couple of silver and a golden one.

Payday 2 players will immediately recognize them as the comically large spoons that have been added to that game as part of April's full update. In a way, they've made their way into the sequel by the way those stickers will be repeated in many heists, so it's possible that you can find them in other ones.

It just so happens that this is where I've seen them, okay?

Up next is , foreign, Heists, probably my least favorite one. I'm sorry, I'm just not a big fan of this one. It's a bit too open and filled with cameras and civilians. Regardless, I still have some tips I can give you. First of all, make your life a lot easier by selecting the zipline bag favor before the start of the heist.

Just getting inside the museum can be tricky because of the number of civilians and guards roaming the outdoor area. If you're lucky enough, you can even reach the camera room very easily, making your stealth attempt a lot more doable. This heist has a lot of pieces of art you can secure for yourself; however, one of them will require two items: a scanner and a flash drive.

The last one will always be inside the safe in the manager's office, but it's not very clear where to find it. It's hidden behind a wooden panel right behind the desk. It may look very obvious for the gameplay on screen, but the first time it took my friends and me so long anyway, this information will make sure that it won't happen to you as well.

Speaking of the scanner, don't make my mistake and confuse it for a loot bag, throwing it inside the helicopter, because if you do, there's a good chance that you won't be able to get it back, locking you out of the extra loot. All right, let's move on.

Gold & sharke

Another fantastic heist where I only have a single tip to give you, but trust me, it's a lifesaver. Just like the previous heist, you want to get the zipline bag, but this time it's not to access the bank but rather to make the whole process of moving the money to the roof a hundred times easier instead of having to travel through the narrow stairs, risking getting sandwiched on both sides.

You can simply throw all of your loot on the zipline, which will automatically bring it very close to the extraction zone. Once I learned this from a friend, it actually removed my biggest gripe with this amazing heist, but before you mask up and start some rampage. I recommend you check out this graffiti on this bin located on the sidewalk in front of it.

before you play

This heist has a lot of mechanics, which may be obvious but not exactly clear from the get-go. Once you reach either the west or east, you'll be able to locate any container that contains loot just by the color, as only the white ones will be of interest to you. It's also important to know that if you're planning to stealth this heist, don't think that just because you're performing parkour between the containers, the guards won't be able to reach you; they'll happily jump and climb to check out any suspicious noise.

So, just like in any secure area, make sure not to sprint too often. I don't like the sound of that. My last tip for this one could be very easily patched in the future, but as of the recording of this article, it is still working. If you don't feel like going all the way around to secure your loot, you can actually jump and throw the bag by hugging the container from the outside area.
