Perfect Heist 2: Update 27 Welcomes Players to the New Skull Island Map

Update 27
Update 27 Steam

Perfect Heist 2 got a new map that allows you to live your island robbery fantasies in the recently released Update 27.

Skull Island is the latest map in Perfect Heist 2 set on a private tropical island. Your mission is to infiltrate this place and head to its extensive underground facilities, where you will find the main underground vault that houses all the good stuff. There’s also a weapon rack that might hold some armaments that you can use for a successful escape if things go south.

Aside from the new map, Update 27 brought a lot of balancing adjustments as well. The Master Thief’s EMP Drone can no longer stun players with its taser. However, the drone can now be used to press buttons. This is a good way of unlocking doors with buttons that were previously hard to reach.

The Bodyguard also got some nice changes. His Electromagnetic Shield is now a wall instead of a bubble and it now lets projectiles through from one side. This enables him to protect himself and the VIP while shooting at robbers. Moreover, the Bodyguard can now push VIPs around, so he can get them out of harm’s way.
