Payday 2 Cartel Business Update Announced Along With 199 Mark 2 Patch Notes

Payday 2

Payday 2 was released back in 2013, and even after seven years, the game is getting post-launch content. Just today, Payday 2 developers announced the Cartel Business Update. The update adds more heists, guns, and suits. You will be able to play the latest heist called The San Martín Bank Heist, and you can either go gun-blazing Rambo-style, or take a more stealthy approach. Just be careful about the Mexican police. A new weapon pack called Federales Weapon Pack is also available, and includes three pistols with a combined fire rate of 2851 rounds per minute.

The latest update also removed the ability to buy or sell a drill or an unopened safe on the marketplace. All old safes that previously required drills to open them can now be unlocked without a drill. More information about the Drill and Marketplace changes are mentioned here, along with the complete Update 199 Mark II Changelog.
