Crime Spree is a new feature released at day 4 of The Search for Kento Event. It basically involves the crew chaining along a large amount of completed heists in a row that will progressively get harder with each successful mission.

Players need to be at least level 60 or have gone Infamous at least once to access Crime Spree.

One important thing to note is that the rewards are completely exclusive from generic playing, so gathering loot is pointless besides the bare minimum, the designed goal is to finish heists as soon as possible, any additional effort is wasted.


Crime Spree is essentially an endurance mode with similar elements to the old Pro Job system.

Crime Sprees can begin at as low as 0 Spree points (0 CSSpreeIcon), equivalent to the usual Overkill difficulty, and will progressively get harder with each completed heist.

A Spree can be started by clicking on the yellow "Crime Spree" button on the screen and paying an entrance fee. In order to start a Crime Spree at 0 CSSpreeIcon, all participants must pay CCoinIcon 6 Continental coins. For a higher cost the lobby can start at a higher Crime Spree level, which grants bigger rewards, but also higher risk. Starting at 20 CSSpreeIcon and 40 CSSpreeIcon will cost 10 additional coins per level, up to a maximum of CCoinIcon 26, and beginning a spree at one's previous best will cost upwards of hundreds, if not thousands, depending on how far they've gone. When joining a Spree in progress, the highest level one can participate in is their own personal record from previous runs.

Sprees in progress may be suspended, effectively pausing the streak(s) until the host wishes to resume their progress, or they may be ended by cashing in the rewards, either at will or by failing (see below). A suspended Spree can be resumed at anytime via the same button used to start it, with the button label showing the player's current score.


The host of a session is presented with three choices of heist upon first starting a Spree, and during the break time between each mission. The three options are presented in order of length, with the second being longer and more complex than the first, and so on, but also worth more Spree points. All mission available in a Spree are one-day heists, or certain days of a multi-stage heist.

Note that certain heists can not appear if the host does not own the required DLC(s). Re-rolling is possible, but will cost CCoinIcon 6, with the cost doubling every third attempt.

These are datamined heists that have their own icons, but aren't currently appearing in re-rolls.


Every time the lobby completes a mission, they are awarded with, for lack of a better term, Spree points, that accumulate until they reach certain milestones where additional rewards can be claimed. As of current, there are three milestones that will award an achievement when reached for the first time (see below). Other than that, each completed mission will give out several payday cards that accumulate into a pool. The guaranteed rewards are represented by their own card type, and are always XP, money, Continental coins and certain armor skins. Less certain ones (represented by question marked cards) will be either mask components, or weapon mods.

As soon as one desires, they can cash in their earnings and leave, though this must be done in between heists. This continues along until they eventually fail, whereupon they will be forced to cash in their rewards, or pay a considerable amount of Continental Coins to maintain the current spree. Claiming one's rewards will eject the player from the lobby and ending their spree. Joining other player's Sprees will add to the reward stockpile, as each player has their own separate section, though a "drop-in" player can only earn their credit in heists they actually participate in.


Gameplay modifiers are special effects that, like mutators, serve to make gameplay more challenging for the whole lobby the further they go up the Spree. Initially 3 options are available. Then for every 10 CSSpreeIcon, one additional Loud modifier become available and one Stealth every 26 CSSpreeIcon to replace the chosen one.

The lobby cannot proceed with their Spree until the host has selected one out of three options. Starting at the two higher tiers will have the host pick more than one modifier appropriate to where they are; beginning a new Spree at 26 CSSpreeIcon will present the lobby with three modifiers (2 Loud - 1 Stealth), and starting at 40 CSSpreeIcon will require the host to pick five (4 Loud - 1 Stealth).

Several modifiers may repeat multiple times, and some will stack if picked more than once (see below).

Gage PerksEdit

Gage Perks are one-level purchases. Each player can purchase one for CCoinIcon 18, which will then affect the entire team for the duration of the heist, making them roughly equal to the crew bonuses of PAYDAY: The Heist but do not exclude the player(s) who bought them.

Note that some perks are not available during certain heists, likely determined by said heists' nature (a loud-only heist will not offer Speed Talker, for example, due to the lack of pagers).

  • During an earlier stream more Gage Perks were shown than were shipped with the actual function (3 pages compared to 2 in the release). Some of the cut ones are Adrenaline Shots, Fast Feet, and Grim Reaper, and additionally, several of the pre-release perks had different names than in the final version.
