8 More Free Weapons Every Player Should Try in Payday 2

In 2016 I wrote this article, and I legit don’t think I remembered it when using the exact same title for a SPUF of Legend video almost two years later. Well, the two lists don’t actually have much in common, so let’s cover some more great options that don’t require any DLC! (Note: This list is only for ranged weapons, if you want melee weapons check out this previous article.) 1. The Platypus The Platypus topped both of these lists due to being the only sniper rifle available to base game players, meaning that it can penetrate shields to damage… [Continue Reading]

The Only 5 Melee Weapons Worth Using in Payday 2

Look, I’m a busy man and you’ve probably got things to do, so today, in our standard amount of 500 words, we’re covering the only five melee weapons worth using in Payday 2. Actually, now I mention it, it’s a total of ten weapons. Because I don’t know if you own the Ultimate Edition or not, and some of these aren’t available without it. Anyway, without further ado: 1. Weapon Butt The first melee weapon you get in the game, the weapon butt, has the fastest swing speed and the fastest recovery time, which is great for heists where you… [Continue Reading]

5 Heists That Give Easy XP in Payday 2

Recently a reader asked what heists are best for their money/XP rates and another commented “Cook Off” and… okay, he’s right. If you only care about money and XP, you really should just play Cook-off over and over. But that’s boring after a while. Instead, here are a couple of heists that I like to keep in my back pocket for quick XP. They don’t have the most experience, but they have the easiest experience to get. After all, the whole point is to make things easy. So today we’re covering five heists that give easy XP! 1. Four Stores… [Continue Reading]

5 Heists For Farming Easy Cash in Payday 2

I’ve gotten a few requests over the years to make a sequel to my “5 Heists that Give Easy XP” video, except regarding cash. But for the most part, I haven’t felt the need to actually do so, since the game pretty much drowns you in dollars no matter what you do, and you should be sitting comfortably after completing a few heists of any length or difficulty, so my main advice is to just play what you want and don’t worry about it. But I guess if you have an academic curiosity, or a minmaxing fetish, here are 5… [Continue Reading]

Random Alternatives to Among Us

Among Us is the new big craze right now. Between it and Fall Guys, there’s a lot of cute backstabbing going on. But Among Us isn’t particularly new. Not at all. In fact, Mafia-style games have been going on for years in tons of different formats. I originally played my first Mafia-style game on an old writing forum and, personally, I feel like it’s still one of the best ways to play. But if you don’t fancy doing that and are looking for literally any similar game that ISN’T Among Us, well, here’s some rather random options for you. Trouble… [Continue Reading]

On July 13th, Tarun Chahal subscribed to the channel and we officially passed 1,000 subscribers on The SPUF Of Legend!

5 Useful Battle Pets in World of Warcraft

Since Pokémon has still somehow not released an MMO, World of Warcraft has remained the perennial title any monster-collecting MMO gets inevitably compared to. Its completely-optional minigame of traveling the world capturing pets, choosing their movesets, leveling them up and doing turn-based battle with NPC trainers and even other players is one of the most straightforward adaptations of the monster-collector formula, and I don’t know of any WoW players who didn’t sink an embarrassing amount of time into obtaining their favorite critters. While there are far, far too many battle pets to ever make a case-closed list of “The 5… [Continue Reading]

5 Reasons to Use the Bow in Payday 2

I’ve covered a lot of weapons in these 2-minute Payday guides. I’ve gone over rifles, shotguns, pistols, melee weapons, throwables, akimbos…and yet in none of those videos, none of my many lists, has my personal favorite weapon ever come up. The weapon that I consider the most versatile and single-best option in the game, something I’m amazed more people don’t use, something I’m usually using in the other slot in all the videos. I’m talking about the Plainsrider Bow from the Western Pack, and by extension all bow-type weapons in the game. In this video, I’m making my case for… [Continue Reading]

Why I Am Bad At Making Videos

I bet some of you have probably forgotten about our Youtube channel, right? The SPUF of Legend was created years ago by aabicus, as part of our 1000 Articles celebration. That was way back in 2016! Feels like a century ago, if I’m honest. But anyway, aabicus wanted to make a Youtube channel and we’d end up posting video articles on there. Except we never really got into the swing of things. It turns out, publishing a 500-word article every day is far, far easier than publishing a video of any length every week. As we get closer to 3000… [Continue Reading]

The 5 Most Influential Half-Life Mods

Half-Life was a great game, had a huge impact on the shooter genre and everybody who grew up back then loved this game, myself included. Valve did a decent job of releasing new content for us all to play, such as Blue Shift and Opposing Force, but the real heroes were the modders who filled the voids with hundreds of standalone fangames of every conceivable length and quality. A few of them are super famous, and if it made this list, it’s because I think you should go play it. Quick Disclaimer: This list is only interested in mods, not… [Continue Reading]
