PAYDAY 2 Hitman Death Sentence Build And Weapons Guide

Death Sentence Build that focuses on all Akimbo variations (SMGs, Pistols and Shotguns) associated with Hitman Perk.

Build contains a DLC and NON-DLC variations and it was tested on highest difficulty…

Introduction

There is no such a thing like a best build, because everyone prefers different things.

And when it comes to Death Sentence, you will need to know what are you doing.

Here, I will show you good build for the highest difficulty using the Hitman perk.

For more efficient distribution of the skill points you”re gonna need to have Infamy 5 and lvl 100.

I’d rather write down details of those abilities, so you can adapt the build for lower lvls.

About Build

This is not the most OP Perk Deck on the market, but you can work with it.

Playing on the highest difficulty is possible, but this sometimes forces you to play the way you don’t want to. It might feel wrong for some people, because this is a horde shooter game and not tactical one.

The playstyle is basic, just stay away from open areas, you need lots of cover, corners and hallways are your allies.
