Payday: The Heist PC Cheats

Assault waves hint

Throughout the game, sometimes your contact will state "An assault is coming in X seconds." Listen carefully to what he says as it is a hint of special units coming in and when the assault is soon to end. Every wave lasts for a about five minutes, depending on how many officers you take down. If you need to complete a time consuming objective, such as making sure the saws in Panic Room are going, camp somewhere near there so you can hold out easier and get the job done. Note: Certain missions have "escape" objectives, which means the wave will never end until you either complete the mission or die. You will know when this happens, depending on the mission and what the contact yells.

Special enemies hints

There are several special enemies that can prove quite tough. You can make it easier to see them and take them out by using the shout-out command while aiming at them. The following are a few enemies and their behaviors:

Taser
Police wearing yellow stripes. You will hear him charge the tazer before firing at you. If shot, you will be unable to do anything but look around while your character randomly fires at them. Try aiming at them in this state. If tazed for too long, you will go down.

Shield
Black officers who have riot shields in front of them and try to move up. They can be flanked easily and taken out from the side and back. Bullets will not hurt them in the front. They are incredibly tough when in a hallway.

Spec-Ops

Agents wearing green night-vision goggles. They will handcuff you to the floor if they get too close. It is recommended that you take them out as soon as possible.

Bulldozer

Big buff enemies covered in thick armor. They do massive damage if they get too close and require a lot of bullets to be brought down. All fire should be focused on them the moment they are identified. Headshot will help.

Sniper
Although not a "Special Unit", they are deadly. Two shots will drain your health. Either avoid them or eliminate them immediately.

Finding important people

Whenever you need to find a bank manager or someone who has important items, wait a couple minutes and the game will display that person in orange through walls. They should be taken hostage, for they sometimes count as civilians, and can easily be found.
