Payday 2 update 210 is now available to download for PC players. According to the official Payday 2 patch notes, the latest update added balancing and changes for low damage assault rifles. Apart from this, Payday 2 patch 210 also includes added performance optimizations for the shotguns
Previously, a big update added the Ukrainian Prisoner Heist dlc. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues while playing the game.
Today’s Payday 2 patch 210 will fix a few of these issues.
Check out more details below.
Each shotgun fires a number of pellets (hit rays). If one or more of these would hit an enemy the weapon’s damage is applied. This means that if multiple rays hit an enemy it still applies the same amount of damage as if only one ray would hit the enemy. These rays can be very performance-heavy. We have adjusted the number of rays per weapon based on the damage class. Higher damage weapons and slower firing weapons will keep a higher number of rays. Fast-firing and low damaging weapons will have fewer rays. This will yield improved performance, especially on older machines running games with multiple shotguns present. The Joceline O/U 12G, Mosconi 12G, and Claire 12G Shotguns will remain unaffected.
We have also looked at some of our Assault Rifles. We want to bring up the DPS of the low damage class of assault rifles in order for them to be more balanced against their mid damage counterparts. To achieve this, we’ve increased the damage for the low damage class. We’ve also addressed the long reload times on some weapons. This issue has been addressed in different ways depending on the weapon. Some weapons have had their reload time reduced, others have had their total ammo increased or an additional damage buff.
Another change you certainly will notice is the scopes. We’ve altered the look of the scope while you ADS to give a better view through the optics. This will let you see more of the battlefield downrange as less will be obscured by the sight itself. Looking at the stats block in the menus, you will now see the strength on the scope listed as the scope’s zoom level.
