PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE MODS, YOU WILL CRASH!
If you "suddenly" crash after the update, it's because your game is modified. Use the threads in the forum to solve your issue. Uninstall your mods if you can't start the game or wait until the mod developers have updated the mods to work with the game.

We've gotten a lot of crash logs recently that we can't do anything about because it's all about mods crashing your games.

If you have tampered with your game files, you've done so at your own risk knowing that it will affect your software.

As a last resort, e-mail us directly.

Enjoy the Butcher's Western Pack!

WANTED - DEAD OR ALIVE!
HEISTERS! The time has come. It's high noon. Sheriff Cloaker is ready. The lawbreaker is ready.... Draw!

Check out the website here!
http://www.overkillsoftware.com/games/butcherswesternpack/

Gunbarrel, Nevada ain't big. It ain't big enough for a lawbreaker. It sure ain't big enough for four of 'em. And Sheriff Cloaker aims to keep it that way. If a lawbreaker comes to town, the Sheriff takes 'em out. Wild West style.

Next day goes live tomorrow!

Heisters,

We have gone live with another beta. In this beta, you get experience from objectives instead of contacts. As an example, this means that from a job like Rats, cooking bags of meth will give you more experience than if you were to blow up the lab right in the beginning. You can also now see what the minimum and maximum experience you can get from a job is when you are buying a contract. By making these changes, you are now rewarded based on how much you do in a heist.

By giving us your feedback on these beta changes, we hope to add these changes to the live game as soon as possible. If you have any feedback please tell us in the bug reporting forum threads which you'll find here:

For feedback on the new XP system: http://steamcommunity.com/app/218620/discussions/10/618459931321933510/
