Mask customization
Examples of mask customization in Payday 2
Hellsing4682Added by Hellsing4682

In Payday 2, players can customize a cosmetic mask to personalize their character. A custom mask consists of, a color scheme, a pattern, and a material. Unlike the masks in PAYDAY: The Heist, which either are always available or become unlocked for meeting certain specifications, masks in Payday 2 are randomly given by the 'pick a card' screen at the end of each heist if the player selects a mask card. The mask, scheme, and pattern can only be used once. Each player is only given a specific amount of mask slots, but masks can be sold for in-game currency and to free up a mask slot. David Goldfarb, Game Director at Overkill Software, has stated that there are over 15.2 million combinations for masks. The created masks can be worn by all four characters.

MasksEdit

A mask can only be customized once and you will not be able to customize it any further once you have applied any color, pattern or material. Even if you leave any of the 3 slots empty you won't be able to fill it later. This means you can sell a customized mask but you are unable to recover any components.

Note that "The Skull" comes with the Lootbag DLC but can also be obtained from cards. Obtaining it from cards requires you to have bought the lootbag DLC which is now available for 4.99$ on Xbox 360 and PS3.

  • Blue items are unlocked by default.
  • Light Blue items are community items.
  • Yellow items are from a DLC.
  • Orange items are from a special event.
  • Fuchsia items are "Infamous" (rare) items.

For example, beat all mission on Death Wish difficulty to unlock the Death Wish Skull. Just like with the Infamy Tree Masks, they cannot be sold or obtained from a card drop.

Infamy RewardEdit

These masks are Infamy tree rewards, unlocked when spending an infamy point. They can't drop during a Payday and they can't be sold. Instead, they can be returned to your mask stash for free, but any pattern, color or material as well as the customization fee to put these together will be lost.

ColorsEdit

Colors are one-time-use items. If a set of colors is used on a single mask, then it will be permanently removed from your inventory. In some cases, the color shown in the squares differs significantly when applied to a mask; for example, for some masks, dark blue might become sky blue, and light blue might become pure white.

Note that "Red/Black" comes with the Lootbag DLC but can also be obtained from cards.

  • Blue items are unlocked by default.
  • Yellow items are from a DLC.

TriviaEdit

Mask14
Twistermask
  • There was a mask called "The Twister" resembling Tobi's mask from Naruto, but it was never actually added to the black market because of copyright issues. Its files still exist within the game.
  • The "Venomorph" mask is a homage to Alien, a 1979 sci-fi horror film by Ridley Scott. The name of the achievement regarding the mask is also a part of the movie's theatrical title ("In space, no one can hear you scream!").
  • The "Hockey Heat" masks were worn by the crew in the 1995 film, Heat. Also, in Firestarter, you can find a hidden hockey poster that shows that Overkill are big fans of hockey, which might attribute to the adding of this mask.
  • The "Hockey Mask" was worn by the character "Waingro" in the 1995 film, Heat.
  • The Presidential masks are a reference to the 1991 film, Point Break, though the only common mask between the game and film is the mask of Richard M. Nixon.
  • The "Brazil Baby" mask is a reference to the 1985 dystopian satire sci-fi, Brazil. Worn by the character "Jack Lint" in an interrogation room. Coincidentally, Robert De Niro plays a character in both Heat and Brazil.
  • The "Grin" mask is a homage to Ulf and Bo Andersson's previous company, Grin, founded in 1997. Overkill Software supersedes Grin.
  • The "Brainiac" mask is an homage to Jason Voorhees' look in Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday
  • The "Dillinger Death Mask" is replicated from the actual death mask of John Dillinger, a famous American bank robber from the Depression-era United States.
  • The "Anonymous" mask is a modified replication of the Guy Fawkes mask. The mask is commonly used to protect the identity of the wearer, deriving the moniker "Anonymous".
  • The "Cthulhu" mask is based on H.P. Lovecraft's creature, Cthulhu. First appearing in The Call of Cthulhu, Cthulhu is a fictional giant and malevolent being that has terrifying features including tentacle appendages protruding from its face. Cthulhu hibernates in an underwater city in the South Pacific called R'lyeh.
  • The "Greek Tragedy" mask could be derived from the masks found in Greek Tragedies, a form of theater from Ancient Greece and Asia Minor.
  • The "Calaca" mask is from the Mexican Spanish word Calaca, which is a skull or skeleton commonly used for the Mexican Day of the Dead.
  • The "Oni" mask is from Japanese folklore, Oni meaning Demon and more.
  • The "Shrunken Head" mask is from a practice that includes severing and shrinking a human head that is used for rituals, trophies, or for trade.
  • The "Hog" mask is a homage to Hotline Miami, a game developed by Dennaton Games.
  • The "Alienware" mask is a promotion from a computer hardware company called Alienware, Dell's subsidiary; the mask is the company's mascot, the Alien. It must be found like the rest of the masks in Payday 2, unlike in PAYDAY: The Heist where it's given exclusively to anyone with an Alienware computer.
  • The "Jaw" mask is likely a reference to Trap Jaw from the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe series.
  • The "Outlander" mask is a reference to I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, a short story by Harlan Ellison, published in March, 1967. It later turned into a point-and-click adventure game in 1995 by The Dreamers Guild. The story was based in a post-apocalyptic future set 109 years into the future after the Cold War escalated into a World War controlled by a Super Computer named AM in which it nearly wiped out the human race in a massive genocide. The mask represents the ending of the protagonist turning into a gelatinous blob creature wanting to scream of the horrors it suffered but cannot, due to its lack of a mouth. It is forever condemned to its thoughts.
  • The "Vampire" mask is based on the iconic vampire Count Dracula. Dracula is part of the Universal Monsters that also contained other pop culture figures like Frankenstein and the Wolf Man. Dracula was first conceived in Bram Stoker's book "Dracula" in 1897. Dracula has gathered over 40+ appearances in movies as a main antagonist and monster.
  • The "Mummy" mask is based on Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie from the Powerslave Album.
  • "Mr. Smooth" is based on the mask used by Ryan Gosling's character in the movie Drive, a stuntman and car mechanic of few words who drives get-away cars for robbers. It's first worn during a stunt scene, and later when the character goes on a rampage.
  • The "Doctor Crime" mask is a homage to Doctor Doom by Marvel Comics.
