"Fednet" as it currently appears

The FBI Files Database is a feature unlocked as part of CrimeFest 2014, and finally introduced in Update #78 alongside Captain Winters, another CrimeFest reward. Some of its features have been used as part of the PAYDAY 2 Secret ARG.

OverviewEdit

They are a direct link to the case files of Commissioner Garrett, which were hacked by Bain with the help of an FBI mole and a bugged Senpaidozer Bobblehead. They add a variety of information about characters, weapons, and heists in PAYDAY 2. In addition, the FBI Files can be used to track player statistics, including such information as most frequently used masks, weapons, and armor, as well as achievement lists and heist history. This also allows host to be informed of any possible cheats, such as any disparity of hours compared to levels, having more skill points than possible, etc.

The FBI Files site is arranged to emulate a traditional computer desktop, with eight icons, each relating to a specific feature and containing their own search boxes to ease with research. More than one feature can be running at once, and are docked into a rudimentary taskbar on the bottom of the site to allow quick access. It even has a digital clock on the lower right corner that displays the current system time to the second.

FeaturesEdit

Profile & Suspect DatabaseEdit

Profile & Suspect

The Profile & Suspect Database tools can be used to look up the Steam profiles of PAYDAY 2 players and viewing their heisting statistics, and current skill profiles and weapon loadouts. Player profiles set to "Private" or "Friends Only" cannot be inspected.

This feature can be used while inside a pre-game lobby to preview other players' skill & perk setups.

Heist DatabaseEdit

HeistsDB

The Heist Database contains annotated files describing each heist the Payday gang has carried out, their descriptions, locations, points of particular interests, and personal comments on them made by Garrett himself. The heists are listed in a possible chronological order. The Bank Heists and Transport heists (not counting Train) are not listed individually, the two being under "Harvest & Trustee Bank" and "Armored Transports", respectively. Most of the multiple-day heists, with the exception of The Biker Heist, are recounted in single files.

The seasonal heists Safe House Nightmare, Lab Rats, Prison Nightmare, and Cursed Kill Room are not included in the database as they are not canon, the tutorial heists Flash Drive and Get the Coke are not included either due to being too small to be considered actual heists, the tutorials not aligning with the timeline of the games, or some other reason, and the Safe House Raid mission is not included as Bain used his contacts to make the incident unknown.

Clown CaseEdit

ClownCase

The Clown Case file contains profiles of all of the current members of the Payday gang, as well as their Crime.net associates and contractors.

The Elephant has no entry in the Clown Case folder, presumably because he has many times managed to avoid suspicion.

Firearms DatabaseEdit

FirearmsDB

The Firearms Database contains a list of all weapons in PAYDAY 2, along with their unmodified statistic values (with the exception of the throwables, which have descriptions unique from those attributed to the items in-game but no stats).

It also lists the history and origin of every Legendary-rarity skin.

Agency AssetsEdit

PoliceDB

The Agency Assets section lists the various law enforcement enemies faced by the Payday gang, their names, descriptions, and personal comments on them made by Garrett himself.

Enemies tied to specific seasonal events such as the Headless Titandozer are not included.

Internal MemosEdit

Memos

In the Internal Memos section, the player can read Garrett's correspondence with other law enforcement personnel regarding his strategies to eliminate the Payday gang. It is displayed as a conventional email box with an Inbox, Outbox and Trash folder.

A series of recent e-mails are tied into the PAYDAY 2 Secret ARG, several in particular tied to a new application described below.

MUDUTUEdit

  • 3/7/2018-
  • 3/6/2018-3/7/2018
  • 2/6/2018-3/6/2018

"MUDUTU" is an encryption decoder application added to the FBI Files on February 6, 2018. Half of its labels are in transliterated Akkadian ("MUDUTU" meaning "knowledge, awareness, wisdom"), the other half in Latin.

It is used by putting a key in the field "ATU" (Akkadian for "gatekeeper, porter"), putting the encryption to be decoded in the field "KUNUKKUM" (Akkadian for "cylinder-seal"), and submit with the button "ERESU" (Akkadian for "to ask, request"). Underneath the fields and button is a section where the decrypted text will be displayed if a valid key/encryption combination is inputted, with all results headed with "PHURUM" (Latin genitive plural of "fur"; "thief"). Pressing the button with missing fields returns "ERRATUM: Deficient", where pressing the button with filled but incorrect fields returns: "ERRATUM: Non recta deducto", translating to "incorrect deductions" in Latin. While processing the inputs, the section will read "Manere" (Latin infinitive tense for "maneo"; "I wait").

Following its introduction, the "yakuza" that sent prior e-mails, later identified as the Kataru, and Garrett sent each other encrypted e-mails, arranging for an exchange of the FBI seizing and delivering an item to the Kataru in exchange for Bain and their alliance with the agency.

On April 26, 3 days after the release of the Breakin' Feds heist where the Payday Gang steals the item he was going to give to the organization, Garrett was sent another e-mail, which seems to threaten his wife.

Keys and encryptions to be inputted into the application have also appeared outside the context of the FBI Files.

Long was the rule of Alalĝar, diminished by the luminosity of the third idimmu in the heavens.

Commissioner Garrett, you are no doubt aware by now that our organisation has taken the liberty of locating and removing the individual known as “Bain” from the criminal underworld. We are sympathetic to your frustration in not being able to bring him to justice and thus offer you a proposal.

There is a certain individual in Washington D.C. who is in possession of an item that belongs to us, and we would like that item returned. The individual in question happens to be a person of great means, as well as a member of the United States Congress, though not a very honorable one. As such, he has surrounded himself with quite stringent security and it would be difficult for even our organization to reach him and conduct a thorough search of his offices to recover it. You however, could do so, if you would be willing to set aside your oath of allegiance and strict adherence to the Law in this once instance, for your perceived greater good.

We are willing to aid you in your charge of ending Crime.net, provided you facilitate the return of our item. Tomorrow, at 06.30 AM, we will have an associate waiting at the donut shop that is closest to your office. If you are interested, meet him there and you will be provided with more details.

Alrighty.

Time is something we never have enough of, but looking at the smallest unit can make it seem infinitely long. And subtracting the number of rights I have sworn to protect, makes little difference.

I met your man. The materials he supplied are being looked at to confirm they will hold up to legal scrutiny. To be clear, I have suspected he is dirty for some time, so despite the manufactured nature of the “evidence” you have provided, as well as any intent you may have to compromise my ethics for nefarious reasons, you should know that I will lose no sleep over this, illicit or not. Locking him up will be in the interest of serving the greater good.

Therefore, provided this item you claim ownership of is not overtly dangerous or has a highly illegal status, I will consent to release it to you in exchange for the individual known as Bain.

I am however concerned regarding the reaction of your representative when I asked him about the current health status of the prisoner. Justice will be served either way, it matters little to me, but it would have been preferable for him to stand trial.

Once you confirm receipt of this message, I will begin preparations to apprehend the Congressman.

Seen through the eye that is no longer there, a mirrored image creates and results in how many unique individuals?

Then we are in agreement, Mr. Garrett. The Kataru are pleased that Bain’s condition is not of paramount importance to you.

On the day after you have made the arrest, our representative will again meet you at the same hour, in the same donut shop, to discuss when and where the exchange will take place.

In the PAYDAY 2 Steam discussions, Overkill employee "OVERKILL_Wordsmith" created a thread on March 2, announcing his job as the writer of PAYDAY 2, his involvement with the ARG, and his interpretation of the lore. Notably, around the time of posting, his avatar was similar to that of the symbol in the center of the second iteration of the MUDUTU icon.

On March 9, it was discovered that Wordsmith's avatar had become a key and encryption that could be fed into the MUDUTU app:

ATU: 2.7188016444864e(31)MeV/c
KUNUKKUM: xN5zCJ11KERkqNdWwz3QJVAqEkGuagkTR2443oETQ5c=

The inputs give the message "There were three."

Wordsmith's avatar changed after this discovery, to one with text in the corners that read "one is dead".

Have a pleasant anniversary, Mr. Garrett.

Mr. Garrett,

We would have thought you more intelligent than to conclude that not answering our last attempts at telephone communication would result is a positive outcome for anyone. Suffice it to say, you do not appear to fully realize whom, or what, you are dealing with.

The truth of the matter is, that if you remain loyal, fate may yet gift you the prize you seek and hinder you from falling into lamhu. Regardless of recent happenings, something is now in motion that cannot be ended.

On August 10, 2018, Wordsmith's avatar changed three times, showing three different encryptions and three words/phrases, "kadath", "never say...", and "...better lock your door". These are not the encryptions' keys, however. Players on the Payday 2 Secret Theory thread, extrapolating the phrases into "Dream-Quest", "die", and "three four" respectively, and putting them all together provided an image of a puzzle piece.

This is covered more in-depth on the PAYDAY 2 Secret ARG page.

On August 13, 2018, Wordsmith sent a private message to Spence2345, a frequent poster on the Payday 2 Secret Theory Thread, shown below.

One of my cats just came in and made a lot of noise. I ran it through the universal translator (TM) and this is what I got.

The answer lied in Wordsmith's fifteenth avatar, which hinted at removing "Heart" from the encrypted text and using it as the key (resultant text block below).

TriviaEdit

  • The FBI Files may be a reference to the American docudrama television series.
  • It is unknown how Bain managed to access the file database in its entirety through the bobblehead, as the doll was neither visibly connected to Garrett's personal computer, nor was it placed in a position with a good view of the screen. The only plausible explanation is that the figure itself contains a wireless transponder through which Bain can remotely hack into the Commissioner's device.
  • As the Profile & Suspect Database tools can only track player progress through their Steam accounts, it is currently not available on console versions of PAYDAY 2, nor is it likely to ever be.
