Payday 2 Update 237 Balances Border Crossing Heist and Fixes Dozens of Bugs

Payday 2 Update 237 Steam/OVERKILL - a Starbreeze Studio.

It's no secret that Payday 3 is in development, but that doesn't mean the support for its predecessor is coming to an end. Payday 2 received a new update a few hours ago that brings various improvements, though it has some sad news for Linux users.

From now on, Linux players won't be able to play with other PC clients and receive any future updates. The hard decision was made by the developer because an older version of the Payday 2 engine was used for that port.

For the good stuff, expect a plethora of bug fixes and general improvements in this patch. The amount of experience gained by one loot bag in Border Crossing has been doubled. The Windows PC version now has an in-game social hub to assist with cross-play across PC platforms. You can read about the rest of the changes below.

  • Border Crossing - Increased the amount of EXP per loot bag secured from 500 to 1,000.
  • Hostile Takeover - Fixed an issue that allowed Crew AI to reach an area inaccessible to the player.
