Payday 2 is a first-person-shooter, cooperative heisting game, where the player takes on one of many different in-game characters and rob banks together with three friends, creating a four-man crew. A worldwide hit brand where gameplay, community interaction and plenty of content updates are vital to its success, Payday 2 is about teamwork as you need to cooperate to succeed on each heist, playing with a varied crew where different types of Skills and Perks are applied.
The same goes for weapons; Payday 2 holds a wide range of weapons, stretching from pistols and sniper rifles to shotguns and flamethrowers. Together with your arsenal comes plenty of modifications such as new optics, barrels, stocks and magazines - everything created so that every player will find a fit for their unique playstyle.

Payday 2 on the Nintendo Switch will come with hundreds of masks for players to choose from, plus patterns and skins they can use to customize weapons, armour and masks.
Payday 2 is now coming to the Nintendo Switch where the same feel and focus on gameplay is still key, but with added mechanics and updates made to accommodate the Nintendo Switch touch screen and features.
