Ridiculously powerful loud oriented build that will make you question overkill ability to balance the game.


You found my PAYDAY 2 Rifle Build, but you can’t seem to make full use of it. PC with integrated graphic having really low fps and you can’t aim because of input lag? Look no further as this is the build made just for you.

PAYDAY 2 - Shotgun Build


Self explanatory shotgun build with close by aced to make full use of your auto shotty. Taking just enough skill point to get bull eyes for extra sustain since shotgun head shot all the time.

Duck and cover aced for some dodge rate while sprinting. Parkour basic to run faster and inner pockets to increase detection a must have to make the build work. Optical illusion aced to lower your detection risk further, the professional for higher stability, specialized killing for more damage and low blow for that extra damage.

Nine lives aced so you have 2 down instead of one and swan song so you have a fighting chance instead of going down instantly and of course beserker aced. Add all that in and you now have a build that can shred anything in this game.

Perk Deck and Armor

You will be using anarchist perk deck with a suit which give you 15 dodge while spriting. The way you use this perk deck and the way you survive is the 2 second damage immunity you get when your armor break. If your armor break, no damage will be taken within that small time frame(can only occurs once every 15 second).
