Payday 3 gives players a large amount of tools and options to tackle each respective heist. Whether gamers want to do things quiet and stealthy or loud is up to them. It’s important to always come prepared for whatever might happen during even the simplest bank job. Fans can use their hard-earned cash in the vendors for better weapons, masks, and outfits.
There are also items that can be bought called favors. These are helpful aids that will be placed in levels beforehand. It’s a good idea to buy a few to keep stocked up for heists. These favors can be simple med kits and ammunition or level-specific gadgets that come in handy for certain heists. Here is how to buy and use favors in Payday 3.
Players need to flip to the vendors’ tab in the main menu to purchase items. Favors can be found all the way at the bottom of the weapon dealer Gage’s shop inventory. They will be right underneath the weapon stickers. Favors only cost $10,000 and are well worth the small investment. Check back between each heist for different items. Be on the lookout for unique items like QR codes that will make certain heists easier. Extra supplies are always useful, and zip lines can be used to make quick escapes from cop-infested areas or to stealthily get onto a roof.
Once favors have been purchased they will not automatically go into the character’s inventory. Select a favor to use while in the ready screen. It will take up a slot in the section that says no asset selected. There are four slots for each player in the lobby. Each character can only equip one favor per heist.
Finding Favors During Heists
Characters do not start with the favors in their inventory. They will instead be placed throughout the levels randomly at the start of a heist. Players will be able to see certain key items through walls on their HUD. Look for orange silhouettes of the favors in the quiet phase of heists. Look carefully, as sometimes they are hidden well and can even be placed in off-limits areas. Don’t forget to bring favors to every heist, as they can be a lifesaver in drastic situations.
Payday 3 is out now on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
