After multiple delays, Starbreeze Studios’ Payday 3 has finally received its first patch with bug fixes and quality-of-life changes. It provides items available on pre-order and specific to Editions for all players while updating aim assist for PS5. Crashes that occurred when answering a radio, vaulting before the heist ends and from multiple explosions have also been fixed.
Starbreeze also confirmed some changes to Skills like Last Man Standing and Armor Up, which will be in the next patch. The team doesn’t expect “big nerfs” for other Skills, but time will tell. In the meantime, it’s looking into more ways to restore armor while also addressing health, which is “underperforming.”
Unfortunately, changes to the latter will be a “gradual change over the first year of updates, rather than one sweeping update,” so keep equipping those Armor Bags like your life depends on it. Check out the full patch notes below for more details, and stay tuned for more on subsequent updates, especially with the first paid DLC, Syntax Error, coming in December.
Payday 3 is available for Xbox Series X/S, PS5 and PC.
