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]

Deimos Arcana, AKA I don’t have enough Pyrol

I don’t get the rarity some items have in Warframe sometimes. It’s just all over the place. Some items, despite being kinda meh, are locked away behind massive grinds. Others are, well, right there to grab. This has come up again in the Deimos Arcana update. Some of the new items are stupidly rare, some of them aren’t. It’s a very weird mess. The new Necramech is just… there. The biggest example of this whole strange rarity thing is the new Necramech. The Bonewidow and her new gun are just blueprints that Loid sells. You just go up to him… [Continue Reading]

The Weapon Exilus Adapter

The Old Blood came out with many strange things, but one of the strangest things is the Weapon Exilus Adapter, a new item that allows you to unlock a new slot that has appeared on all primary and secondary weapons, just like the Warframe Exilus Adapter. Now, for Warframes, the Exilus Adapter is there for utility mods only. This is where you put mods like Rush (for sprint speed), the hacking and loot radar mods, or things like increased bullet jump or reduced friction. In theory, at least, none of these mods are supposed to do any damage, as they’re… [Continue Reading]

Borderlands 2 and the Benefits of Cooperative Mode

If there’s one main gameplay change I really, really like in Borderlands 3, it’s the option to change how looting works with other players in your team. In the previous games, everyone saw every weapon that dropped and everyone got pretty much the same gear. If you worked together to kill a boss and it dropped seven guns, then everyone saw the same seven guns and would have to work with each other to decide who got what. Or they could duel with each other and fight over who gets the one and only legendary that dropped from said boss.… [Continue Reading]

The Long, Slow Grind Towards The Next Mastery Rank

Right now, I am about halfway through the master required to reach Mastery Rank 27. If things continue as they are, it will still be a long, long trek until I actually reach MR27. Why? Because there is a lot of stuff that’s simply a pain in the ass to level up. For most weapons, leveling things up is pretty easy. You could probably get to MR16, the maximum rank needed to obtain all weapons in the game, by simply buying weapon blueprints from the shop, building those then leveling up, alongside your normal farming of warframes and relics. Your… [Continue Reading]

Fun Warframe Weapons You Should Try

While the majority of weapons in Warframe are either pointy things you hit people with or guns that do various amounts of pew-pewing, there are definitely some guns that you really should try. The Ogris There’s only one rocket launcher in Warframe currently and it’s the Ogris, a really ugly lump of a weapon that actually originally used to look like the Black Box. While Grineer Bombards use the Ogris to great effect, it’s… not very good. Sure, the Ogris does a lot of damage, but you will most likely blow yourself up. Still, stick Heavy Caliber on it (+damage,… [Continue Reading]

The 5 Best Pistols in Payday 2

As your starter secondary of choice and the cornerstone of the Fugitive skill trees, pistols are one of the core weapon categories in Payday 2. How do you choose which pistol is the best? Well, everyone will have a different list, but here’s mine! Number 1 – The best all-around pistol is the Baby Deagle, it’s got the damage output of the magnums with the concealment, firing speeds and versatility of the smaller caliber options. If you don’t have the Ultimate edition, the White Streak is a base game option that only suffers from fewer available mods Number 2 –… [Continue Reading]

Bows and Arrows in a Space Ninja Setting

If traditional guns and bullets were the weapons of the Old Ways, used to defeat the Sentients in an ancient war, then Bows are the weapons of the Seriously Really Old Ways, the one thing the Sentients could never corrupt and adapt to. Really, how much can you fuck up a flexible material, some string and some pointy sticks? Which, apart from maybe the Mutalist Cernos and the Lenz, every bow basically is. I do like bows. They used to be my preferred weapon of choice until I discovered there was a flamethrower. Bows are actually pretty strong, all things… [Continue Reading]

Optimizing the Bot Heisters in Payday 2

Before any other players join your lobby, or if you’ve decided to play solo, you’re going to have three bot heisters helping you throughout your heist. Once upon a time you only got two and they were total garbage. But after multiple updates, Overkill has granted AI heisters their own skills and the ability to wield most guns in the game. Today, we’re covering 5 Tips For Optimising Your Bot Heisters! Starting with number 1, the three best guns to give bots are the Steakout shotgun, the Brenner light-machine gun, and the r93 Sniper rifle. Don’t feel like you have… [Continue Reading]
