Payday 2 Details Loot Drops

By Mark Delaney, 2 years ago
To the robber go the spoils in OVERKILL's Payday 2. This developer diary previews the new Loot Drop system in the co-op heist shooter. You rob a bank for the bounty of money, of course, but in Payday 2 you'll be rewarded with different items, weapons, and customization options that are doled out randomly. Some are hard to acquire, like the John Dillinger death mask, while others will be more common. Collectively, there totals 15.2 million different variations of all the combined reward items, giving you nearly endless reasons to simulate subjecting innocent people to violent crime.



Payday 2 will begin taking your money next month.

"15.2 billion" items and customizables that drop eh? Just like the 18 bazillion guns that were promised in borderlands 2, still good news regardless though.

Some though are the exact same but one will have +1 more damage than the other. Not much difference but it counts!

Good premise, but have not been impressed with what I've seen so far. Would like to give it a shot when the price goes down but by that time I suspect I'll be on my Xbox One.

My general understanding is million -> billion -> trillion -> quadrillion etc.
But it's been a very long time since high school math. :P
