Payday: The Heist

First Person Shooter

In Payday: The Heist, players use a variety of firearms to complete objectives (usually centered around stealing a certain object or a particular amount of money). The game plays from the first person perspective, but offers a few twists on the standard FPS formula. Killing civilians is punished, instead players may take a limited number as hostages. Should any player die during the heist, one of his teammates may release a hostage, allowing the a single player to respawn. While playing the levels players will notice a lot of variation in a single level as there are often a large number of random events programmed in. Examples of this are the location of the bank manager in First World Bank or whether your codes will work or not in Diamond Heist.
The game focuses on four robbers (Dallas, Hoxton, Chains and Wolf) who team up. Their first heist took place at the First World Bank, where they entered a vault by using thermite hidden on the inside of a photocopier and stole a large amount of money. A post-game message congratulates the group, telling them that they are “set for life”, but recommends more heists, including robbing from drug junkies in an abandoned apartment complex and ambushing a prisoner transport in heavy rain weather, simply for the enjoyment of them.
