Developers Overkill Software and Starbreeze Studios have made new update 71 available for its FPS tactical shooter video game, Payday 2's PC version. This new update will prepare the ground for the newly-released Gage Ninja Pack DLC.

The new DLC, Gage Ninja Pack, will bring some oriental Ninja weapons chosen by the developers that will aid the players in their heist attempts. These weapons add a new dimension to the game as the Ninja are closely related to stealth and covert methods of attacking a rival. These weapons add a tactical edge to the Payday Gang, thanks to the eastern travels of Gage.

The gang is now transformed into ninja heisters after Gage's training.

These include three new ranged weapons, four new melee weapons, Shuriken throwing star, mods, four new masks, patterns and materials says the Steam website.

The ranged weapons include Pistol Crossbow (small crossbow that can fire sharp bolts), Lebensaliger.308 (a semi-automatic with a bullpup design), Kross Vetex (submachine gun), Poisoned Arrow and Throwable (sharp and poisoned ninja star).

The melee weapons include Kunai Knife (poisoned knife), Talons (wearable claws), Okinawan Style Sai and Empty Palm Kata.

The masks include Shirai, Kuro Zukin, Kage and Slicer. The new DLC will be adding four new achievements (Overkill):

  • Names Are for Friends, so I Don't Need One - Get eleven kills with the Lebensauger .308 Sniper Rifle without reloading it. Unlocks the "Slicer" mask, "Still Waters" material and "Youkai" pattern.
  • Swiss Cheese - Kill 100 enemies in a single heist with the Kross Vertex Submachine Gun. Unlocks the "Kage" mask, "Sakura" material and "Oni" pattern.
