Poetry JamEdit

On February the 13th, 2014, Overkill announced PAYDAYs very first Poetry Jam competition that would run from February 13, 2014 to February 20, 2014.

The winners were announced on March 29, 2014 and were able to contact Overkill Software via email to begin designing their own masks.

Overkill released a sneak peek at the work in progress of the poetry jam masks on April 7, 2014 that would later be available to anyone in-game who owned either the Career Criminal Edition of PAYDAY 2 or The Official Soundtrack DLC on steam.

The community made Poetry Jam masks were finally released on June 17, 2014 (Update 30) alongside The Big Bank Heist DLC.

Bonus customization optionsEdit

All these masks, materials, and patterns will be available for free for anyone who owns the PAYDAY 2: The Official Soundtrack on Steam or pre-ordered the Career Criminal Edition!. 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.

  • The Optimist mask was based on the Transformer Optimus Prime.
    • Its design is also inspired by the Cybermen from the Doctor Who series. They are also referenced in the description. The line, "Or through forced upgrades. Which are compulsory", is referencing the Cybermen's key role in Doctor Who, which is to upgrade all human beings into Cybermen, and they designate the upgrading 'compulsory'.
  • The description of the War Face mask is a reference to a scene in Full Metal Jacket where Sgt. Hartmann says almost the exact same thing to James "Joker" Davis. The third line is different (in the movie, Hartmann says "You don't scare me, work on it!"). The mask itself is a reference to the Zergface meme on 4chan's /k/ board, minus the camouflage face paint.
  • The masks, materials, and patterns were designed by community members that won the Payday 2 Poetry Jam in March of 2014.

TriviaEdit

  • Pat Briscoe, Miles Malone & The Last Minute Replacements and Smokey Bennett & The Hoops are aliases used by Simon Viklund and Overkill Soundtracks.
  • The FLAC version of Shoutout only uses 1 Channel making it the only Channel Type: Mono track in the soundtrack. The MP3 version uses 2 Channels with Stereo Type: Joint Stereo.
  • Curse of the Diamond is the only track on the PAYDAY 2 Official Soundtrack to have its bit depth set to 24-bits per sample.
