PAYDAY 2 – Heavy Crossbow Build

Are you someone with 500+ hours in payday 2 or are you tired of using bullets? Well, I have the perfect build for you, it uses a heavy crossbow and judge shotgun. Yes, I know it uses bullets but thinks of it as a last resort. This is the first build that I made myself that I made into a guide so any feedback would be very helpful.


I used inspire because that is a no-brainer, joker because you need the health due to not being able to gun everyone down very quickly.


I had extra points and I wanted to throw bags far.


I wanted the crossbow to not be headshot only so I gave it access to surefire and fire while sprinting helps so you don’t have to completely stop to shoot someone with an arrow.


Aced optical illusions to get more concealment and aced sneaky bastard so you can get 10 more dodges (it helps).


Aced nine lives so you actually have a chance in one down.


Heavy Crossbow (wow no way) Judge shotgun if you need to get your arrows but they are behind enemies, flashbang if you need to get the enemies to stagger, doctor bags so you can last in one down for longer or any difficulty for that matter, and buzzer to get jokers more effectively.

Perk Deck and Explanation

I chose Infiltrator due to the decreased damage you would be taking, the life drain to keep your health up (while making the build I generally did not know this) and quicker doctor bag deploy so you won’t get into custody while going down without in cover.
