Payday 2‘s Infamy mechanic is designed to increase replayability, but it can be daunting since it’s non-reversible. There are some things you can do to make your next level-up marathon easier, so without further ado, here are 5 Things To Do Before Going Infamous
#1) Make sure you have a good primary and secondary weapon with no reputation level requirements. I recommend the Interceptor .45 pistol and an akimbo SMG. Speaking of akimbo SMGs:
#2) Since you’ll retain any weapons in your inventory, fill all your remaining weapon slots with the priciest gun available. At the time of this video, it’s the Akimbo Tatonka SMGs. After going infamous you can sell these to get some decent starting cash.
#3) if you run out of slots and still have spending cash to burn, you might as well use as much of that as possible buying new weapon slots, mask slots, and masks. Unless you’re me who’s only ever used the same one mask his entire career
#4) Level up a Crime Spree since you can cash it in after going infamous to bypass the early levels. If you really want to blitz through the infamous process, a Crime Spree between 550-600 will allow you to instantly hit level 100 again.
#5) This might also be a good time to pop any achievements that are hard to do at lower levels, such as any involving purchasing or equipping a certain weapon, or ‘I’m a Healer/Tank/Damage Dealer’ which you can effortlessly unlock when at level 100.
Finally, bonus #6, after going infamous, this is the best time to use the Big Red Button in the safehouse to burn your offshore money for the secret trophy. But do note that you do need to have at least $50 million in your Offshore account and your vault must be fully upgraded to get the button to spawn.
