Payday 2 adds more exclusive content to its Social Safe

With the popular squad based shooter having recently gone on sale for less than a quid, there’s a good chance Payday 2 bagged at least a few new “Heisters” over the Christmas break.

No player loadout is complete without donning one of the game’s many different masks and other cosmetic items. Today developer Overkill Software opened its “Social Media Vault” once again, adding new rewards including a Mega Clover mask that was originally given away to PaydayCon 2016 attendees.

The Social Media Vault has a number of prizes up for grabs, requiring fans to perform actions such as following Payday 2 on Twitter and Instagram, join the game’s Steam group, or simply log into their Steam account to redeem a series of codes.
