Starbreeze Studios has just rolled out the latest update, version 1.1.3, for Payday 3. Here's everything you need to know about the new features and improvements included in this patch.

Payday 3 Update 1.000.025 Patch Notes:

QUICKPLAY

This feature lets players join ongoing session, either in lobby or ongoing heists. This is our first iteration of quickplay and is a feature we hope to build on going forward.

For instance, what kind of filters beyond difficulty would you want? When should it be “too late” to join an ongoing game? When the escape made available or when half the loot is secured? These choices will affect regular matchmaking as well as quickplay, so let us know what you think!

POST-GAME PARTY-UP

POST-GAME PARTY-UP

To help players find like-minded heisters with whom to do crime, there will now be an option post-game to let players vote to stick together as a party. Any players who click will be partied up, after all, crime is better with friends

SKIP MISSION INTRO

You can now skip the intro fly-over, it’ll be skipped if all coop players or a single solo player vote to do so by pressing ‘escape’ on PC, ‘X’ on PS5 or ‘B’ on Xbox. We even added a settings option always to skip, should you prefer.

TOP CRASH CAUSES FIXED

We’ve made significant improvements to our backend, making sure that games should be more stable overall. We solved the top offenders causing servers to crash or matches to fail, around 90+% of server crashes and with this patch, around 70% of client (game) crashes.

The game should be a lot more stable going forward, thanks to everyone that chooses to report when those pesky crashes do happen, it really helps.

SHOCK GRENADE

We’ve mentioned this grenade both in its own blog post and a dev update video, so we’re probably tapped out on “shocking” puns.

This grenade will create a short-time shock effect on the ground, disabling any enemy caught within. The big metal shields of the Shield units, the battery packs of the Zappers, and all the high-tech gear of the Techie will react poorly when faced with the high-intensity electrical currents of the shock grenade, killing them all instantly – nice.

Unlock the Shock Grenade by reaching Infamy Level 39.

CRASHES

The last topic for today is maybe not as noticeable as a new grenade, but it is still worth talking about, and that is that we will be implementing fixes for the most commonly recurring crashes. About 98% of server/matchmaking crashes across all platforms were due to one of these root causes, which are now all fixed. Shoutouts to all the heisters out there submitting your crash reports, they help us identify and fix these issues and prevent them for the future.

ESCAPE VAN OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Back by popular demand, you can now again feel the warm embrace of the escape van’s luxurious (and bullet proof) interiors as you jump inside the back to hide from the storm of bullets aimed at your face.

UNIQUE ASSAULT RIFLE INSPECT ANIMATIONS

The KU-59, Northwest B-9, CAR-4 and VF-7S have each received their very own inspect animations as well as an animation improvement pass, so they should look a bit better when still and in motion. We’ll keep rolling these out as our animation team make them!
