* SocializationBonus: There is level grinding which you must do in order to unlock new skills and equipment. Completing heists with friends gives you a "Crew Alive Bonus'', which gives you extra money and experience points for having friends alive at the end of the heist. If you want to ease the pain of level grinding, bring a buddy or two.

** The Payday developers are fans of LetsPlay/TheCreatures, and it shows through several easter eggs. While the group was playing the first game's Panic Room map, LetsPlay/UberHaxorNova noticed a toothbrush in the bathroom that was unusually large. The game was later patched to include a gigantic toothbrush in the same bathroom of that map. The devs even got a large toothbrush for their office. In Payday 2, there's graffiti that says "The Creatures were here" and "Gefilte fish," which references Nova specifically.

* GenreSavvy: The cops have their moments. A Bulldozer that knocks you into bleedout will keep shooting you until you're completely down, unlike most other cops who will only shoot you while you're down if you continue shooting. Shields, who are invulnerable from the front, also visibly have extra armor on their backs since they know they'll get flanked. Also, cops in Counterfeit will send bulldozers to shut off the power due to their heavy armor, but they often send tasers with them just in case. The fact that they then think to shut off the water in the same mission shows they've [[Film/TheScore seen the same movie Bain has]]. Also, [[spoiler: the Army]] in No Mercy.

** ArtificialBrilliance: Only six years later, a [[https://modworkshop.net/mydownloads.php?action=view_down&did=19324 modification]] was released to make the AI Teammates [[TookALevelInBadass even more aggressive]], carrying only the [[MoreDakka AMCAR-4]] because of it's better stats than the [[LittleUselessGun Compact-5]], being able to dominate civilians (including the law enforcement) and powerful enough to turn a [[DemonicSpider Cloaker or a Bulldozer]] into [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill Swiss cheese in a matter of 6 or more seconds.]] Good luck if you're trying to get the certan achievements, [[KillSteal because they're ready to steal your kills]] [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard in a blink of an eye.]]

* TheAllSeeingAI: Smoke grenades won't deter the cops from shooting at you with pinpoint accuracy through the smoke. Fortunately, this also applies to your AI teammates. At least for the police, it's partially justified/explained that they're wearing night vision or infrared goggles to see through the smoke.



* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Cops tend to be extremely accurate in their shots no matter how far away they are from you, including with their use of a shotgun. Cops also tend to have their shots clip into the level geometry and objects, hitting you even though you are hiding in cover. When the cops use smoke grenades, they can see through the smoke perfectly to shoot at you, despite the fact that most (save the Bulldozer and Cloaker) have zero protection from the smoke at all. On top of this, the cops can shoot through civilians to hit you, whereas you will instantly kill a civilian if just a single bullet from your gun grazes them.
** On a more positive note, AI teammates don't run out of ammo, and their health is renewable. They can also do certain scripted events better and have a few quirks (such as leaping on a table and announcing that this is a stickup) and do a few moves human players can't do.



* LostForever: While obtaining extra masks is purely optional, there are several that are no longer obtainable if you had missed out on the events that gave them out:
** The Troll mask was given out by the developers to people who took part in trolling people about the release date for the Wolf Pack DLC. Since the DLC is out, getting the mask is not possible now if you missed your shot.
** The Vyse masks were given out by a member of the Payday community during his charity event. Since the event had passed, getting the Vyse masks is not possible anymore.
** The Secret masks earned from finding the hidden secret in the game is no longer obtainable due to the time to find the secret expiring.

* CrooksAreBetterArmed: The game more or less has the criminals (players) and the cops (AI) on equal footing in firepower, but the Wolf Pack DLC adds a GrenadeLauncher, which can easily obliterate the cops. ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'' follows the same trend as the first game where the players and the enemies use the same weapons, but additional DLC adds even more powerful weapons for the players such as rocket launchers, flamethrowers, frag grenades, melee weapons (swords, bats, knives, etc), and many other weapons that the cops will never have.
** Somewhat mitigated by the Police having access to tactics and weaponry that the Payday Gang doesn't have access to ether. The trope is still in full effect, however, in that many of the options (bulletproof shields, tear gas, tasers) pale in comparison to options the gang has.

* {{Badass}}: The player characters. Even the cops in the sequel wonder how a group of four men can be so damn difficult to take down.
