Payday 3 heisters: every playable character
Payday 3 features a bunch of colorful characters to bring on your capers. But how many playable heisters are in Payday 3, and will more be joining them in future updates?
The Payday franchise features a variety of fun characters. Across both games, over 20 different playable characters have been featured, with diverse nationalities, genders and personalities.
Payday 3 has returned to a more grounded theme rather than the sillier tone it took in the later years of its predecessor’s life. So it’s likely that every heister from Payday 2 will not be making an appearance in the new game.
Here’s every heister that appears as a playable character in Payday 3.
Payday 3 playable heister list: confirmed
Six playable heisters are currently available in Payday 3:
Furthermore, according to the Payday 3 FAQ, Simon Kerr, Pete Gold, Damion Poitier and Siu-See Hung have reprised their roles as Dallas, Hoxton, Chains, and Joy respectively. Wolf is voiced by Nicklas Berglund, replacing Ulf Andersson.
Pearl, on the other hand, is a brand new character introduced for Payday 3. She is described in-game as a “master con artist and infiltrator”. She is voiced by Rebecca LaChance, who has also voiced characters in Horizon Forbidden West and Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
Payday 3 heister list: rumors and speculation
While Payday 3 has been released with these six characters, it’s possible that more will be added later down the line. Payday 2 only launched with four heisters, but a further 18 were added in later DLC and content updates.
So it’s possible that popular Payday 2 characters could still come back in some shape or form. Dragan’s voice actor Dragomir Mršić has also recently appeared in videos posted by Starbreeze, hinting at his involvement in the sequel.
