—Dallas when putting on a mask

Dallas, AKA Nathan Steele, is a 44-year-old chain smoker. Due to his previous smoking habits, he is continually out of breath, though this does not affect gameplay. He wears the American flag mask during heists, and is voiced by Simon Kerr.

By the time of PAYDAY 2, Dallas was revealed to have a younger brother, who took up the mantle of Hoxton when the former heister was arrested by the police.

According to Bain, he has just recently acquired and decrypted several classified FBI files regarding the background and criminal history of himself along with Wolf, Chains and Hoxton. The files are being put together for an upcoming release. [1]

BackgroundEdit

PAYDAY: The HeistEdit

Dallas worked for a Chicago mob when he was young. He later climbed the ladder and went from club bouncer to hitman. He has a brilliant mind disguised behind the face of a common thug. When he was thirty he tried to turn two Chicago mobs against each other, resulting in the deaths of policemen and mobsters. A hit was placed on Dallas by the mob leaders, but he managed to survive.

While he was in hiding he ran an underground gun range. He also performed hits against drug dealers, wishing to harm the American drug trade. After ten years in hiding, he had what Bain calls a criminal's version of a: "what am I doing with my life?" kind of crisis. He then decided to steal a shipment of weapons and try to find a criminal crew.

PAYDAY 2Edit

Dallas appears to also have an official occupation while not being a criminal, where he uses the name "Nathan Steele". In the web series, he was the bank manager of the First World Bank, which allowed the crew to rob with his inside help. In the Dentist trailer, he claims to be in "financial transfers". Whether or not this is a euphemism for his career as a bank robber or he is a real, professional financial consultant, remains to be seen. Although given he managed to attain the position of manager in a major bank, which would require him to know a lot about financing; Dallas may in-fact, be a legitimate consultant.

TriviaEdit

GeneralEdit

  • Dallas is the most iconic character in the whole PAYDAY series, appearing as the main character on almost every media. He is described officially as "the face that everyone fears", referencing to his position as the Mastermind/leader of the PAYDAY crew.
  • He is modeled after Karl Andersson, a game developer at Overkill Software. By the time of PAYDAY 2, the actor who portrays him in the web series, Eric Etebari, provides his likeness to the character.
  • He wears a sepia-brown suit with a faint plaid print during heists, regardless of armor.
  • He shares his name with a large city in the state of Texas, USA.
  • During development, the following nicknames were scrapped: Cowboy, Touchdown, and Chief.[2]
  • Each character was originally named by nationality, and Dallas appears as "Russian" in the game files.
  • Dallas' voice actor (Simon Kerr) also provides the voice for the Bulldozer.[3]

PAYDAY: The HeistEdit

  • He is depicted as the "Assault" in the "Upgrades" menu.
  • The Clown, Beeef, and Alienware masks for Dallas have red and white stripes with stars imprinted on a blue layer, which represents the United States flag. The "Secret" mask for Dallas has a similar red, white, and blue color scheme, but it lacks stars and the vertical orientation of the bands of color makes it more similar to the French flag than the United States flag. The golden mask does resemble the United States flag as well, though the mask is entirely made of gold. The "Soundtrack" mask for Dallas also is colored red, white, and blue.

PAYDAY 2Edit

  • He is depicted as the "Mastermind" in PAYDAY 2.
  • Dallas, along with Chains, can be seen wielding a Heckler & Koch HK416 in the first episode of the webseries.
  • In the web series teaser trailer for PAYDAY 2, Dallas is nowhere to be seen, and it was speculated that he was the driver of the van. However, it is revealed later in the first episode of the web series that Dallas was already at the bank, as seen on Bain's computer in the beginning. A speculation is that he works undercover in the bank as seen in the second episode of the web series.
  • The AI Dallas wields a suppressed Bernetti 9 during stealth and an AK 7.62 during live combat.
  • Dallas is played by actor Eric Etebari in the PAYDAY 2 webseries. His appearance in the series is very different from his in-game counterpart. The actor portraying Dallas has a gray goatee and slightly longer hair. Dallas's voice also lacks the rough "smoker's lung". Despite this, the character has probably remained the same as Simon Kerr still provides the voice of Dallas, and the slight change of apperance could simply be due to the time difference between the first and second game.
    • Simon Kerr confirmed that he would return to voice Dallas via a post on Twitter. [4]
    • Dallas is voiced by Kerr in the Breakout trailer.
    • His younger brother is Houston.
  • Dallas carries a Bernetti 9, a Crosskill and an Uzi (actually a Mini Uzi, not the in-game variant) in the Hoxton Breakout trailer.
    • He also demonstrates the effects of the Akimbo skill/Ambidexterity perk by dual wielding two weapons at two points during the video, though the way he does so cannot be replicated in-game.
      • He can be seen dual-wielding both a Crosskill and a Bernetti 9 at the same time, as observed when he shoots the female prison guard with the latter but is still visibly holding the former with his left hand. These pistols can only be wielded in pairs of each weapon (dual Crosskills vs. dual Bernetti 9s) in-game.
      • Later on, during the car chase, Dallas also uses two CAR-4-esque assault rifles simultaneously to fight off the oncoming SWAT team, though only select pistols can be wielded in said fashion in-game.
  • From the second episode in the Web Series, he calls the cops and states his name as "Nathan Steele". This could be his real name, or just another alias. This name is spoken again in the Dentist trailer, further corroborating the alias theory.
  • Dallas seems to refer to most people as "buddy" based on his dialogue.
