PAYDAY: The Heist is an action filled first person shooter game for the Playstation Network that lets players take on the role of a hardened career criminal executing intense, dynamic heists in constant pursuit of the next "big score". Load out with an array of weaponry and equipment Navigate six high-stake heists with three other live or A.I. Co-Op partners in crime. Time for a PAYDAY - Cash in Before you Cash Out!
Step 1-A: Enjoy the game and break it in.
As there is no real way to give a roadmap for this game, I'm just going to have 1 step broken into 2 parts. You can either choose this step, or choose step B (see below for more info on B).
For this route I suggest you just take your time and go about things at your own pace. I will, however. Give some recommendations.
Easy: You can jump into this from the start (what else are you going to do?) and I suggest playing on this level until level 15-20.
Normal: I suggest leveling up to Rep 20 and having either the ammo bag or the medic bag unlocked before attempting this. I also suggest having an upgrade or 2 on the Thick Skin equipment.
Hard: I suggest reaching Rep 50-65 before attempting this mode. Also, make sure you have a decent amount of weapons and upgrades so you're prepared for the fights. Especially assault waves.
Overkill: Don't attempt this until Rep 90+ You will most likely die. Have most of your upgrades (the final level cap for upgrades is 88. Than you have access to them all.) Have most, if not, all of your weapons and, most importantly, HAVE A GOOD TEAM.
Step 1-B: Noob Herder.
This step is the same as 1-A, except we're going to be getting the "Noob Herder" trophy as our first. I say this because you need to be Rep 0-5 to have access to it and doing it now will make your life a bit easier. See the trophy description for more info on it.
Step 2: Play, play, play.
Like I said, there's no real way to go about trophies. So just play at your own pace and get the trophies in the order you see fit. It will take some time to reach Rep 145, but keep at it and you'll eventually get there.

[PS3T Would Like to Thank CyanideHappiness for this Road Map]
When a teammate goes down, a count-down will begin until they bleed out. When they bleed out they will go into custody and you will have to wait for Bain to negotiate a hostage trade. First off, make sure you have a hostage tied down using your cable ties. Once he says that he's able to perform a negotiation, go to the tied hostage and hold to trade them in.
When you reach a high enough rep in either the Assault or Support class, you will unlock a shotgun. When a Bulldozer enters, empty out on him. It will take a lot of shots to kill him. Make sure you get the final shot in for your trophy.
You need a live teammate for this trophy!
After getting downed and bleeding out, you will go into custody. At this point your teammate(s) must finish the heist without trading you from custody. The reason you need a real teammate for this is if you go down with A.I. partners the heist will automatically end.
After entering the slaughterhouse you will be in a room with armed guards and 3 butchers. After dealing with the guards, tie down the butchers with your cable ties. (If you can't find them, they usually run and hide out in the yard.) After a teammate bleeds out, wait until Bain is ready to negotiate to trade them in. Repeat for the other 2 butchers.
Note: I suggest doing this on hard. It is possible to get trade a hostage in on Overkill, but it's more likely to occur playing on hard mode.
Beat a heist on normal difficulty or above, having killed a Bulldozer without taking damage from any Bulldozer. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
This trophy could prove to be very challenging. I found it easiest done with these settings:
--------------------------------------------- Heist: First World Bank Difficulty: Normal (hard works too). Play with team AI?: Absolutely not! They will probably kill him. Make sure you have at least one real partner, though.
Okay, when playing on this map, Bain will inform you that a Bulldozer is entering. When you hear this, go somewhere safe, where the Bulldozer can't hit you. A good place is at the top of the stairs in the drill area. Now let your partner(s) weaken him a bit. When they've taken some of his health out, kill him from long range as to make sure he doesn't hit you (make sure you get the final shot). After that stay close to the stairs so you have an easy escape in case another comes in and let your partners go ahead of you. After completing the heist, the trophy will pop.
Please note that if you use this tactic to bevery wary of the Bulldozer that sometimes pops out of a door during the escape route.
This trophy is much easier than it sounds. It just requires some patience.
After breaking through the convoy and entering the slaughterhouse, you will see the truck hanging by a few wires. As the description states, DO NOT shoot at them. what you're actually going to do is absolutely nothing. The truck will eventually fall on its own. The few times I helped people with the trophy, it took roughly 10-15 minutes and we had to sit through 2 assault waves. So bring some ammo and doctor bags for this one.
Make sure to set the difficulty to hard before starting the heist!
Go about the heist as you normally would until you plant the drill. After planting it is when the SWAT will come in and they're who we need. I suggest staying in the lunch area to the left of the entrance, that way you know when a law enforcer is planting c4 on the windows. Keep an eye on the window until you see a SWAT place c4 on one, he will go one pane at a time. At that point run outside and shoot him. I had just enough time to kill him, and I didn't notice him until he was on the last pane so don't worry about not reaching him in time.
Note that this trophy is shared. As in, if one person kills the C4 enemy, all players will receive the trophy.
On GREEN BRIDGE, destroy all the lights in the main scaffolding tower. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
After freeing the mark from the armored truck (random), you will be assigned to escort him to the top of a scaffolding at the other end of the bridge. After reaching the scaffolding, go through each floor shooting out each bulb. A few things to take not of: You only need to shoot the lights out on the right scaffolding, not the left. Also note that on the first floor is a small path in the middle with 2-3 lights there as that path is easily missable.
This trophy can be a bit frustrating as you have to find Chavez within 45 seconds of the mission starting. Not 45 seconds after drawing weapons. My best advice would be to have a team of 4. Go in and start the deal as quickly as possible. After drawing guns have each member take a floor and rush through the rooms looking for him. Avoid gunfights unless you absolutely must. Chavez is also easily depicted by his orange jersey with his name on it.
This isn't all too challenging as long as you take your time. I suggest attempting this trophy with a team of real players, but only have 1 person that's good at deactivating the boxes do it to avoid messing up. After all 3 boxes are defused, continue the mission however you please (if you get lucky the vault will open upon entering the codes, but the chances are very slim.) After getting all the gems and escaping, the trophy will pop upon reading the stats screen.
Gain a level in the Assault tree during an assault.
This is probably one of the first trophies you'll get.
You'll know an assault is going on as a red alert symbol will be at the bottom of your screen. Simply gain a level during one, while in the assault class for this.
For those that don't know, to change your class, hold select in-game to bring up the classes screen and click the corresponding button to change classes.
This is another easy one. First, make sure you are in the Sharpshooter tree. Now, this is easiest attempted on First World Bank, or Panic Room. At one point in both levels, snipers will come into action on the roofs. Go kill one and than do absolutely nothing. Let your teammates do all the killing. The only thing you can do is objectives. After leveling up the trophy will pop.
This trophy is a bit misleading. You don't have to level up at the exact moment you revive someone, and you don't have to level up by gaining XP for reviving someone. No, you have to level up during the revival stage. As in when the yellow bar is active but not completely full.
To start things off, I suggest you have 2 medics and 2 ammo suppliers as both of these resources will go fast on this level.
At the start of the heist, do not shoot at the convoy. Doing this will ensure that the armored truck will go in with the back doors facing the floor. This will make your life easier as you can simply jump on the table under the truck and plant the c4 to gain access to the drill in half the time. After this, plant the drill as soon as the safe falls. Stay relatively close to the safe so you can quickly start it up again if it jams. This next part will be easier with a team of 4 as A.I. do not pick up the gold bags. Have each person grab a gold bag and make a dash for the yard. After all 4 are stashed, have 2 people run back in for the gasoline. After placing the gas, there will be 2 wood piles to your right. Jump on them, than jump on the big container. Turn to your left and jump into the open container. Once in here, all law enforcers will have to jump up to you, giving you a wide berth to kill them. (Thanks to Cars123456789 for the container tactic) Keep completing the objectives as soon as you can until the escape objective. If done in 15 minutes with all 4 gold bags, you'll get your trophy.
Beat HEAT STREET on normal difficulty or above without anyone getting downed. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
This trophy is a lot easier than it seems so long as you have a group of 4 people. Attempting this with the A.I. is possible, but it likely won't end in your favor. Once again, I suggest you have 2 ammo bags and 2 medic bags.
See "Easy Street" for an easy method on beating this level.
In PANIC ROOM, kill all armed thugs in and around the apartment building within 60 seconds of you and your crew drawing your weapons. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
This trophy is a little more forgiving than "You can run, but you can't hide". But not by much. There aren't many thugs outside or on floor 1, so have 1 person attend to those. That person will also be the person who makes the deal. After he goes in, a guy in a blue shirt will go upstairs and the 2 armed guards will move. Take this chance to head to higher floors and shave off some time. Assign one person to each floor and quickly but diligently work your way through the rooms. Note that one person will also have to take floor 5.
Don't let any law enforcers reach the graffiti on the center of the roof in PANIC ROOM from the SECURE THE ROOF objective until the ESCAPE objective on hard or OVERKILL difficulty. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
After planting the c4 and detonating them, you will be assigned to kill all enemies on the roof so Bain get over the hole and lower the magnet. Having a team of 4, assign each person a corner to watch (one person will have to watch the stairs as well). When Bain is ready to have the magnet attached, have one person run down and complete the objective while the other 3 stay back and keep watch over the roof. After Bain hoists the money room out and flies away you're home safe.
You only have to kill 25 FBI agents in a row. You're allowed to miss shots, so long as you don't kill any other enemy type. FBI agents are easily depicted by the white shirts they wear (sometimes they have a green ski mask on). Kill 25 in a row to get your trophy. The easiest map to try this on is Panic Room in my opinion.
You have to get 30 kills, with 30 shots. You cannot miss, and they must be 1 shot kills! The M308 is a single fire rifle and is unlocked through the Sharpshooter tree. Equip it and go into any heist. I suggest these settings.
------------------------------------------- Heist: First World Bank or Panic Room Difficulty: Easy (normal works too, but stay away from SWAT. They usually take 2+ shots to kill.) Use Team AI: I suggest you don't because they always stick fairly close to you and will kill everything they see which could very easily mess you up.
Also, killing civilians adds on to the count. I'm not sure if the patch fixed this or not as the descriptions says get 30 kills. Not kill 30 law enforcers. I also recommend waiting until you have upgraded accuracy on the M308.
An easy method for Panic Room is to go to the stairs near the roof and shoot the cops across the street as they mostly stay in one spot giving you easy 1 shot kills. (thanks to Cars123456789 for this tip)
In DIAMOND HEIST, defeat all twelve Patrol Guards using only trip mines. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
This trophy MUST be done by one person. It is not a group effort. Here is an excellent tactic by JDHnCIH:
What makes this challenging is that there are 12 guards and the max qty. of mines that you can get is 10. But have no fear, there is a way to make this quite easy:
First you will want to stay undetected. Try and find 2 guards close together (or more preferably 3) If you can manage to get a triple kill with your first mine, then you will be left with 9 guards and 9 mines, much easier. Otherwise try to snag 2 double kills which would be helpful as well.
The easiest way we have found to get this trophy is to aim towards the ground while close to a guard and immediately shoot it after dropping it. Your crosshairs will be pointing directly at the mine if you don't move after dropping it. No worries, your mines will NOT cause you any damage. And since you should only be trying this once they are fully upgraded, they have a pretty decent blast radius making double and triple kills fairly easy. As I stated above, the first kill you will want to go for is a double or ideally a triple. Playing with friends to fend off the police as they start to arrive is helpful, they can also help you track down any missing guards you haven't killed yet.
*Also, if you lay a mine and your teammate shoots it, and kills a guard that will count as your kill. Just something to keep in mind in case things get hectic. But once you get the hang of quickly dropping then shooting a mine, this trophy is a breeze
This trophy is actually very easy with a good tactic. After getting access to the vault and taking all the jewels, Bain will inform you that you got them all and it's time to escape. Don't go to him. Just stay in the vault as this is the easiest and safest place to attempt this. After a set amount of time, Bain will tell you that there's too many enemies and that he's going to try and come back around. Keep holding off the enemies while he does that 6 more times. When he returns for the 7th and final time, you will get the challenge complete informing you that you did it correctly.
This is probably the hardest trophy, if not, close to it. You must beat Heat Street on Overkill with a group accuracy of 60% (you can view this at the stats/ results screen).
Ipkiss27 has come up with an excellent tactic and Cars123456789 + Dan1985 backed it up. all credit goes to them.
At the start of the heist, make sure 2 people kill 1 person each so they both get 100% accuracy. After that they kill NO ONE. At this point, the other 2 members will need to do all the work unfortunately. After taking out the enemies make a run for the van at the end of the street before the 1st assault wave rolls in. From this point, slowly make your way up the street towards Matt’s car. Use cover as needed and make sure your partner sticks close behind. Once you reach the van, get the fire started and hide behind the gate to the right. Have the two 100%-ers hide behind the far right dumpster while the 2 shooters are near the door. After burning him out make sure no assault wave is going. If not, push him up the hill while taking out the enemies as you go. If a wave comes in, run back to that area and don’t fire a shot til necessary. This will make the assault wave shorter. Keep this tactic up until you reach the gate that Matt needs to open. Make your way up and you will see an open building to your right. Go in and exit to get behind a SWAT van. Doing this will prevent enemies from spawning there, thus making your lives easier. Keep doing the running back tactic until you reach the LZ. When Bains ready, get him into the helicopter fast or you’ll be faced with an endless assault.
A few extra tips:
- Have the "100%-ers use shotguns to make it easier for them.
- Use 1 medic bag and 3 ammo. (I prefer 2 of each.)
- Have the shooters use Brenner LMG's
- If one of the "100%-ers gets tasered, you'll have to restart.
This trophy isn't that bad. One thing to note, though; the big diamond is only accessible on Overkill.
When the mission starts, make your way through, deactivating all 3 alarms. Do not get caught or the door will lock for the entirety of the mission. After getting the vault open, DON'T break any glass or touch and jewels. This too, will lock the door. Instead, look to the right to find a metal door. Push the button on the left. At this point, the door will open and you will see the big gem in a glass case. The game will now assign you to return and pick up the glass cutter you used to access the building. Bring it back to the case and set it up. After it cuts through, take the gems and run like hell! Also, make sure all your teammates are alive or the trophy won't pop.
A few tips for this one:
Even though it's not the hardest trophy, it is still difficult. Make sure your team is prepared for the assault waves on this map because they are long.
I suggest using the Crosskill, Brenner LMG and the machine pistol as your weapon set.
I suggest 2 people use the perk for extra bleed out time, while one uses the marksman perk (increased accuracy). The last one is up to your team.
If an assault wave rolls in DO NOT attempt any of the 2 escort objectives. You. Will. Die. Find a safe place and dig in for a long fight.
Be fast, be diligent. I cannot stress this enough. If you take too long, you will find yourself running out of resources left and right while surrounded by a wall of enemies.
Most importantly, USE COVER. This is not a map to mess around on, especially on Overkill. Aside from the enormous amounts of enemies, ridiculous (and very unresponsive) AI escort missions, this map is Tazer and Cloaker galore.
See those sapphires? They're actually there for a reason most people don't know. Grabbing a few of them, even 3 or 4, will greatly increase your chances of the secret door being there. As this too, is a random event.
This requires 3 actual teammates!
The Noob Lube perk is only available for Rep 0-5 characters, but if you surpass that rank don't worry. You can either reset your character data, OR get a team of 3 people that are Rep 0-5, as only your teammates need the perk for you to get the trophy. Not you. The easiest heist to attempt this on is Diamond Heist, as the level is technically half-way done after defusing the alarm boxes. (Thanks to Cars123456789 and Hoodieninja86 for pointing these 2 things out.)
Beat all heists on OVERKILL difficulty without anyone getting traded from custody. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
I suggest having a team of 4 players, all rep 145. 2 using ammo bags, 2 using medic bags. I highly recommend using the Brenna LMG as your primary, the shotgun or machine pistol as your secondary, and the Crosskill as your pistol.
All I can really say is:
Use team work.
Use ammo wisely and conservatively.
If a team mate goes down, make it your job to get him up as soon as possible.
I don't have any recommendation on perks aside from the one that increases bleed out time.
Complete objectives as fast as possible, while taking your time to kill enemies around you.
If an assault wave rolls in, pick a spot and sit tight until it's over.
This will eventually unlock a little after reaching Rep 145. Just keep playing the heists and earning the other trophies and this will eventually follow.
For the Payday trophy, you don't exactly get 1 billion when you level up to 145, I was about 250-300 million away from Billion Dollars. Just keep on playing Bank level on overkill with good teammates and somebody with Mr. Nice Guy. And you'll get it in a few hours. Slaughterhouse might be good too but it's more challenging so Bank is highly recommended, doing challenges also Definitely helps
This trophy is best attempted on Normal difficulty.
The number of people and their locations can change, there are usually 7 or 8 people.
After a thorough search of the houses and tying everyone down I suggest staying upstairs in the living room/dining room general area to ensure the cops don't release anyone. I also recommend doing this in a 3-4 man team. 2 people watch hostages while the other 2 run the objectives. Try to keep the police pushed back near the fence across the yard, especially if you have the one person that was laying in the lawn chair as they will get to them fast.
Beat any heist using the STRYK Pistol, AK Rifle, GL40 Grenade Launcher, Toolkit upgrade, Sentry Gun equipment and Big Game Hunters crew bonus. To complete this challenge, you will have to have played the heist from the start.
You need to complete a heist using every new unlockable in the DLC Technician tree. You can do this on any map, any difficulty.
After hacking both boxes you will be told to go down into the basement and open the door using the crowbar. After doing so you will be told a trap was lain and to either defuse the C4 or get the heck out.
See this tip by SWAT_JaYbO:
For the C4 trophy there is 7 total. If you come in from Wilson's house you need:
Player 1 go in and get 2 to the immediate right on the walls
Player 2 get the next 1 on the right wall( the second one)
Player 3 Get one under the Table on the left wall and turn around and get the one on the printer(it will be on the left side of the printer)
Player 4 get the one above the table on the left wall and the one on the Back wall. It is very random, out of about 30 heists we did last night on Overkill 145+, we got it 2 times but when you do it.....it's a very nice PAYDAY.
Planks can be found pretty much everywhere along the map and are used to board the windows in the house or the gated area on the roof.
I suggest picking up the ones on the roof first because at a certain point, snipers will completely fill the buildings across the street making it very hard to navigate the roof without dying. You have about 5 or so minutes at the start of the match, so no need to really hurry. After doing so just go floor by floor looking in all the rooms and corners. After placing 20 of your own accord the trophy will pop.
Beat UNDERCOVER with everyone in the crew only using the GL40. To complete this challenge, everyone in your crew will have to have played the heist from the start. Using melee does not count towards this challenge!
Beat UNDERCOVER with everyone in the crew only using the GL40. To complete this challenge, everyone in your crew will have to have played the heist from the start. Using melee does not count towards this challenge!
After unlocking the GL40 (lv.21 of the Technician tree) go into UNDERCOVER. This trophy can be earned on any difficulty, just make sure to have at least one friend and run ammo bags to make this trophy even easier. Also, as the description says, be careful not to melee anyone!
A tip from DarkSeraphim666:
I just went for Blow Out and used my pistol while I was in bleed out and still got the trophy. Also, only people who are alive at the end will get blow out.
No-one can kill anyone when going for this trophy!
I suggest playing this a few times on normal or hard and getting a good outside strategy going. What I mean by this is you're going to want to stay upstairs at all times and derive any attention from the center. This being you don't want anyone down there when an objective is being completed.
Keep away from the center, always go in pairs to the power or water as there's usually Bulldozers and Tazers waiting and finally, when going to escape be very careful. Before opening the grate, there is usually 3 shields which you will just have to ignore and some times after opening the first gate down in the sewer a Cloaker and Tazer will drop down.
Okay, at the start make sure you and your team all know where the 2 crowbars, the power box and the hose are. This will make for a quick reference when the objectives come.
Now, start by assigning a person to specific hostages as you want to tie them all down. In doing so you will be able to do a stealth scene of sorts. You wait until the owner (guy in pink) goes down stairs to show you the leak. Make sure he stays down there! After tying everyone down, Bane will tell you that people might have saw you and cops will come to check it out. Be very careful to not kill them here, shoot them once and get them to surrender. If you mess up, no big deal just move on to the next step,
if done right, however, you will still be undetected. The police will be reported missing and more will call the house. Another group will come in and the assault will start.
There's a few places to take note of.
1) The girls room in the left house
2) The couch next to the window in the right house
3) The counter in the kitchen of the right house
4) The top-right hand corner of the map, just outside where one of the escape hatches are. Stay on the outside next to the bush, in the corner.
5) The tool shed at the bottom-left where the other escape hatch is (next to the beach)
These places are where you want to stay. Stay on one side of the map and if gets too crowded, switch sides, never go through the middle of the map or you will die! Make sure to place a health bag in the corner where the bush is at the top-right, one behind the tool shed in the bottom-left and 2 down in the vault.
Now, go about the mission normally but inbetween objectives go back to one of those areas. Also, always go to objectives as a group in case of Tasers. If you get tazed then someone can melee them ONCE but there seems to be a glitch where if you shoot in the air he will stop for a moment.
Keep doing this method until the escape, staying away from the middle and the vault (you don't want attention there). After dropping down, be cautious as a Taser and Cloaker sometimes drop down a little further in.
If there's something you didn't understand, feel free to message myself or ipkiss for an attempted better explanation or if you'd like to play with us for a demonstration.
