Perfect Heist 2: Update 26 Buffs Master Thief and Adds Community Map Showcase

Update 26
Update 26 Steam

Perfect Heist 2 got Update 26 not too long ago. In this patch, developers have implemented balancing changes to a number of classes, though the Master Thief has “stolen” all of the good stuff.

The Master Thief is a class in Perfect Heist 2 capable of spawning a diamond that only he can steal. When picked up, the Master Thief not only gains $25,000 but also gets an increase in movement speed for a short duration.

That said, developers thought that the Master Thief is still weak overall compared to his counterparts, which is why he got buffed in Update 26. One of the biggest changes is that the Master Thief is now a “stealth” character, meaning he now demands a more cautious playstyle. However, he can use his EMP drone to stun others with a taser, giving him enough time to escape when things go wrong.

While the Master Thief enjoys some buffs, he got a couple of notable nerfs as well. The time it takes for him to pick up the diamond has increased from 0.5 seconds to two seconds. Besides that, the diamond is now only worth $20,000 instead of $25,000.

In addition, this patch includes the Community Map Showcase feature on the main menu. This allows players to quickly jump to the featured custom map of the week, which is voted upon by the community using the thumbs-up/down buttons.
