The time between Payday 3 and its previous entry has been 10 years now, which has been plenty of time for fans to tackle the predecessor. Those who accomplished some of the most intense challenges can also earn rewards for the sequel. Here’s how to get all of the Infamous Rewards for Payday 3.

How to Get Infamous Rewards in Payday 3

The key to unlocking all the Infamous Rewards is to connect both Payday 3 and Payday 2 through the same Nebula account. We’ve laid out all of the steps below:

  • Create a Starbreeze Nebula Account (you need to create one to play Payday 3).
  • Link your Steam or Epic Account through the Linked Accounts page.
  • Boot up Payday 2 to confirm that it’s synchronized with your Nebula Account.
  • If you decide to take care of some challenges, restart the game to make sure it synchronizes.
  • Claim the rewards through the Events Page.
  • The items should now show up in your inventory for Payday 3.

Ideally, as long as you sign in with the same account that has both, it should work. From my own experience, I had to boot up Payday 2 again to synchronize it. So it’s possible you might have to as well, just to refresh the progress with Nebula’s servers.
