Metal Detector is a melee weapon in released as part of PAYDAY 2 The Alesso Heist update.
Metal Detector is a somewhat compact melee weapon for the particularly sneaky, trading damage and knockdown power for excellent range and swift attacks, though due to its less-than-perfect concealment it tend to stick out during stealth if not supplemented by other low-detection gear.
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.
This type of metal detector is commonly used at places such as airports and prisons to detect metallic objects during a manual search of a person.
The device is likely deactivated, as it does not react (e.g. beeping) to anything metallic on the player's character or in the environment.
The Metal Detector can be seen as props in The Diamond and Hoxton Breakout (Day 2).
