Best Payday 2 Mods List

Advanced Crosshairs, Hitmarkers, and Hitsounds (ACH)

ACH is a mod that upgrades additional hitmakers, reticles, and crosshairs to the game. This gives you a better idea of where your bullets are going and, in some cases, an idea of whether you’re actually hurting the people you’re shooting. You’ll need a few additional mods to install this, but it’s definitely worth it.

WolfHUD

If you’ve ever been unimpressed by the info the game actually gives you on-screen, try WolfHUD. WolfHUD is a mod collection that effectively transforms the appearance and functionality of Payday 2. There are a huge amount of changes here that make it a more visually manageable game and give you huge amounts of additional information.

Better Assault Indicator

“Assault in Progress” isn’t a particularly useful bit of info in Payday 2. What kind of assault? Is it an Endless Assault? How do you end the Assault? There are lots of small details you could do better with. Better Assault Indicator adds this information, helping you figure out what’s actually going on in the chaos of a Police Assault.

BeardLib

BeardLib isn’t a mod in itself, so much as a way to facilitate other mods working. This constantly updated platform allows for script manipulation, custom maps, and easy swapping of content. It's a must for someone who wants to play modded Payday 2.

This enormous retexture project completely transforms how Payday 2 looks and feels. A massively updated set of new textures that affects almost every level in the game, the Payday 2 Re-Texture Project makes it feel like playing a whole new title.

Better Bots

Let's face it, sometimes, the bots in Payday 2 suck. If you’re solo heisting and need some help, the bots aren’t usually going to give it—that is, until you try the Better Bots mod. This update means that Bots will automatically mark Tasers, dominate cops, melee enemies, throw concussion grenades, and generally be much more useful!

Custom FOV

In the days of old, every FPS game had an expansive FOV slider. For example, Quake players used impossibly wide FOV’s to get the best angle on enemies. This Custom FOV mod adds that functionality to Payday 2, so you really have no excuse to get KO’d by a Cloaker.

Hotline Miami Hud

The Hotline Miami crossover events with Payday 2 were something special. And if you’re like us, you never really wanted them to end. And with this Hotline Miami HUD mod, you can keep the Hotline Miami theme going with a completely transformed HUD.

Meth Helper

Making meth in certain heist missions is, without a doubt, the most frustrating thing in Payday 2. Yes, more frustrating than being downed by a Cloaker while a Bulldozer assault is in progress. This Meth Helper mod makes making the meth actually doable without confusing and incorrect instructions from the NPCs.
