As a special Christmas present, Overkill Software have added a free heist to Payday 2 – the Charlie Santa Heist.
This heist has players robbing the GO Bank, apparently based on a map from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. There’s also a lovely little gift of a high-powered scope, nine new achievements, and – if you join the official Payday 2 group on Steam – a Santa mask. Not bad for an early Christmas present.
There’s a bizarrely harrowing trailer for the heist below, which takes the form of camera footage from various sources overlaid with a 911 call reporting the heist. Considering how ludicrously over-the-top most Payday 2 videos are, this is weirdly subdued and realistic, for the most part.Related to this article

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
