You're no boxer, but you can still throw a pretty good punch. All it takes is some strength, speed and timing and you'll land a striking blow in no-time.

The Fists is a melee weapon available in PAYDAY 2. It is available to players of any reputation level.


The Fists deal relatively low damage, but have moderately high knockdown power and are fast to charge and swing.


  • It is recommended that players prepare a charge before attacking enemies.
  • If a player wishes for more damage, it is recommended that they get Berserker, Pumping Iron and Bloodthirst Aced from the Brawler skill tree.
  • If a player wishes for more knockdown, use Martial Arts Aced.
  • Virtually any DLC/Community melee weapon is recommended over the Fists.


The Eighth and Final Rule The Eighth and Final Rule
On the Night Club heist, kill 50 law enforcers using your fists.


  • While effective against up to lighly-armored foes, the usage of one's fists is not very well-advised in reality, due to the fingers runs the risk of injury or outright breaking when coming into contact with hard surfaces (e.g. a Shield) at high speeds, leaving them handicapped and one unable to fight properly.
  • This is technically the first "dual-wieldable" melee weapon. Unlike normal akimbo weapons, however, each click of the melee button causes the player character to randomly swing either their left or right fist, resulting in several different attack animations. The same thing can happen when the weapon is charged.
