Step 3: Download SuperBLT

SuperBLT is an essential launcher for PAYDAY 2 mods.

  • Download the SuperBLT launcher. Make sure you’ve already installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 on your PC. Otherwise, you can also download it from the launcher’s website.
  • After that, click on the latest release DLL file for the SuperBLT and save it.
  • Place the DLL file in the PAYDAY 2 root folder.

Step 4: Launch PAYDAY 2

Reopen the Epic Games Launcher, and launch PAYDAY 2 again. The game may take a moment to generate necessary folders, such as ‘mods’.

Now download the Payday 2 BeardLib library from GitHub and extract the zip file in the mods folder of the root directory.

  • To download mods for Payday 2 you can visit the Modworkshop website.
  • Choose a mod and download the zip file of the mod by pressing the Blue Download button.

Step 5: Organize Mods

Mods come in different categories, such as visual mods, core mods, or custom content. Organize them accordingly within the game’s root folder.

For example:

  • Visual mods, like skin changes, go into the “mod_overrides” folder inside the assets folder of the game.
  • Core mods, which affect gameplay, go into the “mods” folder.

Step 6: Enable Mods

Launch the game again, and you’ll notice that mods are enabled. You can manage them in the Mods Manager within the game. Customize your game with the mods you’ve installed.

By following these steps, you can customize your PAYDAY 2 on the Epic Store.
