How Many Heists are in Payday 3? Answered

Payday 3 has a total of eight heists available at launch. Every single one of these comes with numerous variations that shake things up. Whether it’s the location of items, what a vault code is, or even entire rooms, there is a lot left up to RNG. This adds plenty of reason to replay these eight heists over and over again.

Further accompanying these are a variety of cutscenes to tie together a story. You are free to tackle these in any number you like without having to worry about the plot though. In the end, it’s simply all about the heisting.

This is likely a drastic change for those who have been playing Payday 2 throughout the years. While its predecessor launched with only eleven heists, albeit a couple of them being reskins of each other, the number ballooned into a massive 78 over the last decade thanks to DLC.

Will There Be DLC Heists in Payday 3?

We know from the season pass details that there are going to be four heists added to Payday 3 over the next year. If they’re as extensive and large as the ones in the base game, they should hopefully be weighty additions. Whether others will be added in the meantime, such as the holiday-themed ones in the previous title, remains to be seen.
