This balances enemy forces and new enemy assets on all difficulties. It also corrects a wide range of bugs from earlier updates and builds a foundation for some aspects of the player side balance. The "enemy side" of Crackdown is now nearly feature complete. We believe this update provides a more stable, enjoyable payday 2 experience for players of any skill level on any difficulty.

The Changelog

Automatic Updating

No more futzing with the github site or wrangling folders! After installing the new version of Crackdown, future updates to the "live" version of the mod can be downloaded automatically and quickly while ingame.

Enemy AI Overhaul

This update fixes several bugged AI tactic functions, giving you smarter, more tacticool Zeal squads. It also means flashbangs and smoke grenades are returning. Don’t worry, though- we've improved and modified the flash and smoke behaviors so that only specific special enemy squads use these powerful (but annoying) tools. No more spam, we promise- but be warned, the grenades will be aimed more effectively for ambushes, flanking attacks and tactical retreats.

G-men

The G-man is the ultimate stealth antagonist, devised by Kataru to foil robbers that like to rush things. G men carry infared flashlights, heavy pistols, and special pagers that ignore the effects of ECMs. These enemies appear in specific locations on new, modified Crackdown stealth heists. Engage with them at your peril!

New Zeal Taser assets

The Zeal taser now has highlighting in line with the recent enemy uniform update.

SWAT and ceiling Turret tweaks

We heard your complaints, and we've adjusted the stats of the SWAT Turrets and ceiling turrets. While vehicular turrets still can't be completely destroyed, they now have less armor and a smaller firing period before reloading. We're working on a targeting update that will make their suppression effects less aggravating. Keep an eye out for that enhancement in a future update.

New Holdout Maps

Three custom holdout maps, courtesy of Rex:

  • Ovengrill Hardware
  • Yacht
  • Boiling Point

New Crackdown Heists

Last but not least, three new Crackdown heist versions:

  • Shadow Raid
  • Diamond Store
  • Bank Heist: Cash

These new heists can all be completed in stealth or loud, and are meant to serve as an introduction to Crackdown stealth mechanics. Be warned: if you're looking to sneak through these missions, you're in for some really nasty surprises. Be ready to take a completely different approach; your old, familiar strategies won't always work.
