Infamous (Card Drops)Edit

Rare masks are unlocked via card drops. Each card drop has a 5% chance to include infamous items in its loot pool. The chance of getting a mask ranges from 9.8% at level 1 to 15% at level 90+. Without any DLCs, 12 out of the 50 masks you can receive from a payday are infamous (with all available DLCs as of 30 July 2014, it is 12 out of 69). If you have no masks in your inventory, the chance of receiving an infamous mask during a payday thus ranges from 0.12% (level 1) to 0.18% (level 90+). When a mask is in your inventory, that mask's likelihood of showing up during a payday is halved. Playing on Very Hard, Overkill or Death Wish increases this chance by 2, 3 and 5 respectively. Equipping a fully unlocked Perk Deck increases the chance to enable infamous items by 10% of its normal chance. At level 90+, with all DLCs, every non-infamous mask in your inventory, with no infamous masks in your inventory, with a full perk deck equipped and playing on Overkill difficulty, the resulting chance is 0.81%.

  • The Anonymous mask is a modified replication of the Guy Fawkes mask with a Fu Manchu-style goatee and distinctive Asian look. The mask is commonly used to protect the identity of the wearer, deriving the moniker "Anonymous".
    • The mask description also references the hacktivist group of the same name whose primary icon and public representation is the Guy Fawkes mask.
  • 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 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 Grin mask is a homage to Ulf and Bo Andersson's previous company, Grin, founded in 1997. Overkill Software supersedes Grin.

  • The Heat glasses are named after the 1995 film that the PAYDAY series takes much inspiration from, Heat. The glasses resemble those worn by McCauley in the shootout following his crew's bank robbery.
  • The Plague Doctor mask is a reference to the real-world plague doctors who donned the same mask and are often employed in times of massive disease outbreaks in medieval Europe. It may also be a reference to MAD Magazine's "Spy vs Spy" main characters, namely the White Spy and the Black Spy.
    • The Bhagavad Gita (The song of the Bhagavan), a famous Hindu epic text, was mentioned in its description.
  • The Butcher mask's description references the Pink Panthers, a name given by the Interpol to the real life Slavic international jewel thief network.
  • The Android mask's description is a joke about C-3PO, the protocol droid in the Star Wars series, as he claims to speak 6 million languages fluently. Its appearance and design, meanwhile, are a reference to Daft Punk.
  • The Demonshank mask is a reference to Sauron from The Lord of the Rings franchise.
  • The Heister Sentry looks very similar to the Power Rangers helmet, which is also helped by the description, which talks about a full body spandex suit.
  • The Kamul mask is a reference to Khamul, a Ringwraith from The Lord of the Rings franchise, further supported by the fact that the mask is unlocked alongside the Evil Eye pattern, the appearance of which is similar to the main antagonist, Sauron, from the same franchise.
  • The Lurker mask appears to be somewhat based on a Xenomorph Queen from the Alien franchise, as evident by the shape of the head crest. As well as this, the description also makes references about lurking in shadows, a trait commonly seen in Xenomorphs in the films.
  • The Being mask is based both in description and appearance to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and the 2004 movie Van Helsing. "A Modern Prometheus" was the alternate title to the Frankenstein novel and the appearance of the mask is similar to that of the creations of Dr. Frankenstein known as the Dwergi, which also served as Dracula's henchmen in the film. Their fondness for wheat likely is a reference to Frankenstein's Monster being burned alive in a grain mill in numerous film adaptations.
  • The Venger mask and description are a direct parody/tribute to the character of Bane from the Batman series. The aspect of the League of Darkness relates to the The Dark Knight Rises version of the character, while the aspect of the mask being used to inject the user with a serum that granted them super strength relates to the comic/television version of Bane. The name "Nemesis", mentioned in its description, is a clear parody of "Bane".
