Payday 2

Payday 2 is a first-person shooter about a criminal gang, and it is the sequel to Payday the Heist. It does have DLC, but it is not required for the platinum. Though it might make it easier as it gives you frag grenades and a couple heists that have a chance for certain escapes. This is the PS3 version which is a very outdated version of the game. If you want a more up to date version, you can get Payday 2 Crimewave or The Big Score on PS4.

Credit goes to multiple people on Youtube, as their videos were used in the guide.

The clipboard will look like this and will say Helium, Nitrogen or Deuterium. In the lab there's a white board that tells you the color of that specific gas canister.

Image 1
-Another clipboard that tells you how many nozzles it has. This one is rather easy, on the clipboard it will say 1xH, 2xH or 3xH on the bottom. If it says 1xH it means it has 1 nozzle going to the gas canister. 2xH has 2 nozzle's and 3xH three. -The Computer with a green graph (this one is always in the lab.) In the top right corner it will say a psi number, with and < or an >. > 5812 = bar above or equal to 401 < 5812 = bar below or equal to 401 > 5783 = bar above or equal to 399 < 5783 = bar below or equal to 399 You can find a barometer on the engine's, now last step is to figure out which engine it is.

Bronze Trophy
In the Park escape, ensure that no law enforcement enters the park before the escape van arrives.
  • Unlocked by 2,305 tracked gamers (16% - TT Ratio = 2.46) 13,991

The best way to get it is to play Jewelry Store and kill all the civilians, then capture at least 4 bags, before leaving during an assault. Once you get Park Escape, earning the trophy is simple. What you want to do is move all your bags into the corner of the street, then have all players stay there. If you do that, then the enemies won't spawn inside the park at all, and they won't venture into it. If however you start the Escape with the van crashed into the wall, you'll have to restart it as enemies spawn inside the park. Once the escape vehicle arrives without any law enforcement stepping foot in the park, you'll get the trophy.

You Shall not Pass! in Payday 2
Silver Trophy
In the Overpass escape, don't let the cops set foot on the bridge before you can escape.
  • Unlocked by 1,692 tracked gamers (12% - TT Ratio = 2.87) 13,991

Overpass Escape can be found after Rats or Nightclub. In order to increase your chances of getting the Escape to appear, you must kill civilians, escape during an assault, or in the case of Rats, blow up the laboratory on Day 1. This is best done on Rats, as blowing up the lab will almost guarantee you get Overpass Escape. Once you get Overpass Escape, you'll want to split your team up on both ends of the bridge. At least 2 players is recommended, so that you can cover both entrances, as well as a lower difficulty. Once you're in position, simply keep the enemies at bay, then make it to the escape vehicle for your trophy. Sentry Guns can also help.

Cappuccino to go, Please in Payday 2
Silver Trophy
In the Cafe escape, secure all loot and escape within 30 seconds of the escape van arriving.
  • Unlocked by 2,598 tracked gamers (19% - TT Ratio = 2.32) 13,991

The best way to get it is to play Jewelry Store and kill all the civilians, then capture at least one more bag than the requirement, before leaving during an assault. Alternatively, you can just do Ukranian Job and capture a single bag, before leaving during an assault. This is a lot faster and makes completing Cafe Escape significantly easier, as you won't have to guess which alleyway the vehicle will appear at, as you'll have the bag on your back.

Once you get Cafe Escape, you'll want to move all of your bags to one of the three escape locations. One is near the end of the street you start on, indicated by a boarded up fence. The other is around the corner of that building, leading into the same alleyway. The last is behind the building with the 'Daily Washington' banners that's behind you where you spawn, with no boarded up fence at all. Defend yourself until the van arrives, and if you chose the right escape route, you'll be able to throw all your loot in the van within 30 seconds, then escape. If however, you chose the wrong escape route, simply kill yourself off (or restart if doing this solo).

Bullet Dodger in Payday 2
Bronze Trophy
In the Street escape, complete the escape without killing any enemy snipers.
  • Unlocked by 1,814 tracked gamers (13% - TT Ratio = 2.77) 13,991

The best way to get it is to play Jewelry Store and kill all the civilians, then capture at least 4 bags, before leaving during an assault. Alternatively, just do Four Stores and kill civilians, then leave during an assault. Once you get Street Escape, open the two doors behind you that leads to the back alley, then just lay low in the starting building. When the escape vehicle arrives, run to it and ignore the snipers. If you have AI turned on, they may attempt to kill snipers, but chances are they won't. If you make it to the helicopter without killing any snipers, then the trophy is yours.

They see me Baggin', They Hatin' in Payday 2
Gold Trophy
On the Garage escape, get away with 8 bags.
  • Unlocked by 877 tracked gamers (6% - TT Ratio = 3.99) 13,991

First of all, you'll want to do Nightclub on Very Hard or Overkill difficulty. The reason for this is it means you have a higher chance of both safes spawning, and of having at least 8 bags spawns between those safes. I recommend Overkill. As for playing, I recommend you do this with at least 2 players, if not more, with enough skill points to get some high tiered skills. You'll want access to either 2 sets of Shaped Charges and OVE9000 Saw, 1 set of Shaped Charges and someone with Lockpicking Specialist Ace, or a combination of all these skills and equipment. The reason for this is to allow you to gain access to the safes quickly, allowing for faster attempts. Lastly, before you start, make sure you purchase the Loot Drop Truck asset, as this will make delivering the bags once you get 8 to spawn a lot easier. When you start, head into the Nightclub nice and loud, taking out civilians on your way. Once you reach the back, open the doors either with the OVE9000 Saw, lockpicking or the keycard that a guard has. If you have enough Shaped Charges, then you can just blow the door. Now, you need both safes to spawn, which happens about 90% of the time on Overkill. With both safes available, blow them open with your Shaped Charges or pick them open. The money safe can spawn up to 4 bags, whilst the cocaine safe can spawn up to 7 bags (there's enough space for 12 cocaine piles, but I've never had more than 7 spawn). If you manage to get 8 bags, take them to the upstairs office on the right side ready to drop into the Loot Truck. If you don't get 8, just restart. With 8 bags captured, simply wait for the escape van to arrive, killing any civilians that may be left. When it arrives, make sure to leave during an assault. If you're lucky, you may get an Escape. Even if you get an Escape though, you only have a 25% chance of getting Garage Escape, as 4 of the 5 Escapes can appear after Nightclub. If you get Garage Escape, then it's smooth sailing. Once you get Garage Escape, make sure you have Two-Piece Suit equipped for faster movement. Work together to move all the bags at once, rather than delivering one at a time. Head up the car park until you arrive at a locked staircase off to the side, which you can just blow open with Shaped Charges, cut open with the OVE9000 Saw or simply lockpick. With the two doors open, just move the bags into the van to get this annoying trophy out of the way! Recommended skills for doing this are: Endurance Ace (Mastermind Tier 1), Inside Man (Mastermind Tier 2), Transporter Ace (Enforcer Tier 1), Portable Saw Ace (Enforcer Tier 5), Carbon Blade (Enforcer Tier 6), Shaped Charge Ace (Technician Tier 5), Sprinter Ace (Ghost Tier 1), Fast Hands Ace (Ghost Tier 2), Lockpicking Specialist Ace (Ghost Tier 5).
