Payday 2 just received a patch a couple of hours ago. Update 222 tweaks the XP system and also fixes several bugs. The update is only 661 MB in size, meaning that you should be able to download and get back in the game fast.

The Counterfeit heist’s objective description referring to the wrong ocean has now been changed. From now on, loot bags in Normal difficulty will reward players with 1,000 XP in selected maps. The Viper grenade when shot by Arbiter will go farther than before.

  • Fixed an issue where enemies would not stop playing their voice lines upon death
  • Fixed an issue where the “Plague Doctor” achievement did not track kills from older grenade launchers
  • Changed an objective description of the Counterfeit heist that referred to the wrong ocean
  • Added a limitation to the Crime Spree catch-up mechanic so you can't gain more than 100 bonus ranks from playing with a host of higher rank
    • This limit only applies if the host is playing at 2,857 ranks higher than the clients
  • Added additional experience points to multiple levels:
    • Yacht Heist will grant you 500XP on Normal difficulty per additional loot bags
    • Border Crossing will grant you 500XP on Normal difficulty per loot bag

  • Fixed a crash when using Viper grenades on certain heists
  • Fixed an alignment issue on the SG Versteckt 51D LMG in first-person view
  • Adjusted the Viper grenade drop off when shot by the Arbiter to make them fly further
