Payday 2 Update 238 Now Live, Read Patch Notes Here

Payday 2 Update 238 Steam/OVERKILL - a Starbreeze Studio.

Payday 3 might only be a few months away, but that doesn't mean the developer plans to abandon its predecessor. A new update for Payday 2 just went live, which is focused on bug fixes and improvements. No new content or feature was added, but given that the sequel is so close by, it makes sense to stop adding new stuff to a 10-year-old game.

Update 238 is less than 1 GB and squashes a little more than a dozen bugs. The issue where some glove icons will be cut off is addressed, and pasting a picture into the social hub search bar won't result in a crash anymore. Contour handling received performance optimizations, and safe house raids now appear as intended. The rest of the changes are mentioned below.


  • Goat Simulator - Fixed an issue displaying copyrighted material in the level.
  • Rats Day 2 - Fixed an issue where optional loot, in a specific safe, was not able to be interacted with.
  • Midland Ranch - Fixed an issue that was preventing a string from being displayed for the laptop placement, for anyone who was not in possession of the laptop.
  • Border Crossing - Fixed an issue where the Border Crossing Exp tweak didn't work as intended


  • Fixed a graphical issue on the Amaroq 900 Sniper Rifle that caused the bullet to appear through the character's body, in the menus.
  • Fixed an issue with the Ijiraq Muzzle Brake and Qanuk Barrel, on the Amaroq 900 Sniper Rifle, that caused these mods to disappear during sprinting.


  • Fixed an issue where some players had access to more skill points than intended
  • Fixed an issue that could delay damage bonuses application when marking a unit.
  • Fixed an issue where damage bonuses would sometimes not apply when multiple contours are applied on the same unit.
  • Fixed an issue where the Aced version High Value Target might not apply correctly to SWAT Van Turrets.
