Gage Assault Pack is a DLC that was released on September 4, 2014 and June 16 for PS4 and Xbox One as part of Crimewave Edition. It is the eighth DLC pack for PAYDAY 2 and is available for $2.99 on Steam.

Introduced Gameplay mechanicsEdit

This DLC reintroduces the GL40 from PAYDAY: The Heist and introduces grenade launchers into PAYDAY 2, not counting shotguns loaded with HE Slugs from the Gage Shotgun Pack.

This DLC also gives melee weapons a new stat: Concealment. This stat acts in exactly the same way as Concealment does for Primary and Secondary weapons, and is the measurement of how easy (or hard) it is to hide the weapon and maintain a low detection rating.

Customization optionsEdit

These masks, materials, and patterns are achievement rewards. They can't drop during a PAYDAY and cannot be sold. Instead, they can be returned to your mask stash for free, but any non-achievement or Infamy reward pattern, color, or material as well as the customization fee to put these together will be lost.

  • All four of the masks from the Gage Assault Pack DLC are based on villains from comics published by Marvel.
    • The Black Death mask is based on the Marvel villain "The Mad Titan" Thanos.
    • The Crow Goblin mask is based on the Marvel villain Hobgoblin. It's description is a reference to Marvel's retcon of Hobgoblin's background.
    • The Professor Wrath mask appears to be based on the Marvel villian Mister Sinister.
    • The Volt mask appears to be based on the Marvel villian Apocalypse.

Kill 25 Bulldozers using the Gewehr 3 Rifle. Unlocks the Sniper Barrel for the Clarion rifle, Sniper Stock, Sniper Grip and Sniper Foregrip for the Gecko 7.62 rifle, Precision Stock, Precision Grip and the DMR Kit for the Gewehr 3 rifle as well as the “Black Death” mask.
Also unlocks the Precision Foregrip for the Gewehr 3.

The fastest and safest way to spawn and kill 25 bulldozers is to continually repeat the first few minutes of Meltdown on Normal difficulty. A single green bulldozer will spawn in one of the Murkywater cargo containers who can be found and killed before restarting the heist.

Artillery Barrage Artillery Barrage
Kill 25 enemies at 40 meters or more using only the GL40 grenade launcher. Unlocks the Wooden Stock for the Gecko 7.62 rifle, Pirate Barrel for the GL40 grenade launcher, “Bone” material and “Muerte” pattern.

As above, the start of Meltdown will offer a range of targets at 40m or more - many of the guards in the yard are this far away and a carefully aimed shot can even reach guards on the warehouse roof. The heist can then be restarted as many times as required.

Not Today Not Today
Kill a jumping Cloaker using the GL40 grenade launcher. Unlocks the Wooden Stock, Retro Grip and Wooden Foregrip for the Gewehr 3 rifle.

Numerous viable strategies exist for this achievement, but as general advice, players should aim to position themselves behind some sort of low cover (tables, counters, cars), do some damage to a Cloaker with a secondary weapon, then approach the cover - when the Cloaker starts his jump, fire at the cover itself and the area-of-effect damage should kill him. On the PC version, damaging the Cloaker prior to the jump is not required on the Very Hard difficulty.

  • The teaser achievements form a slightly modified version of a quote by Douglas MacArthur.
  • Unusual Suspects is a reference to the 1995 film The Usual Suspects.
  • Not Today is a reference to the Game of Thrones TV series, being an answer to the question "What do we say to (the god of) Death?".
  • Hammertime is a reference to the American rapper MC Hammer who coined the phrase and used it in a number of songs and TV shows.
  • Tour de Clarion is a reference to the Tour de France.
  • Big Bada Boom is a reference to a quote from the 1997 science fiction movie The Fifth Element.

TriviaEdit

  • The overall visual design and theme music of the update site are a shoutout to DICE (another Swedish game studio), specifically as a pastiche of their work on the Battlefield series of games. Also, all four guns in the pack are part of the Assault kit in the Battlefield series.
  • Starting with the Gage Assault Pack, every new weapon introduced to PAYDAY 2 have actual bullets modeled into their magazines instead of blank boxes, and existing firearms were also updated to reflect this.
