PAYDAY 2: Ammo Pickup Multipliers Adjusted in Update 235

Update 235 Twitter/@PAYDAYGame

A relatively small but important patch for PAYDAY 2 is now available on Steam. Update 235 is only 109.1 MB in file size, yet it brought pretty significant adjustments.

Developers have made changes to how ammo pickup multipliers from weapon mods apply in the pickup calculation. Basically, these multipliers now affect the base pickup rate. This change ensures that the modifiers will work as intended and eliminates any potential problems with pickup bonuses.

For weapon changes, the total ammo for the RUS-12 and Breaker 12G shotguns has been adjusted. RUS-12’s total ammo is up from 15 to 40 while the Breaker 12G now holds a maximum of 28 bullets, up from 21 previously.

Update 235 implemented some important bug fixes as well. For instance, the issue in Hostile Takeover where the game won’t count any loot secured past 20 bags is now resolved.
