About This Content

The Texas Heat campaign

Gun runner Gemma McShay invited us to Texas to pull a heist on her biggest rival, and to find info on who's pulling his strings.

While she combed our intel, we launched a train robbery for the ages to liberate some valuable printing plates on their way to a mint facility.

Now, our journey takes an unexpected turn to an oil company's headquarters in Dallas. We've discovered who was bankrolling Midland Ranch, and a new ally wants to take her down. Time for a little corporate espionage!

The Hostile Takeover Bundle

The Hostile Takeover Bundle takes us from the outskirts of Fort Worth to Dallas, Texas. The crew isn’t here for the famously good food or other leisurely pursuits however.
Through our contact with Gemma McShay and the trust gained over successfully completing the Midland Ranch and Lost in Transit heists, we’re finally introduced to McShay’s secretive employer, Blaine Keegan. And Keegan has a job for the Payday Gang, making life difficult for his new business rivals in Texas.

Buying the Hostile Takeover Bundle will grant you immediate access to the Street Smart Tailor Pack, the McShay Mod Pack and the McShay Weapon Pack 3. The final part of the bundle, the Hostile Takeover Heist will be made available on February 22nd, 2023.

Street Smart Tailor Pack

The Street Smart Tailor Pack sets you up as the undisputed ruler of the streets!
Our new mission in Texas from gun runner Gemma McShay brings us to the heart of Dallas, we want to make sure to look our best, and to look our best - we need to look Street Smart.

McShay Mod Pack

Our Texas ally Gemma McShay has put together a whole bag of cutting edge weapon mods and heisting accessories ahead of the Hostile Takeover heist.

The McShay Mod Pack contains 15 new weapon mods, a new throwable as well as a new deployable.

McShay Weapon Pack 3
Gemma McShay gets in touch yet again, offering three exciting new weapons! Tackle enemies at range with the Aran G2 Sniper, defeat them 3 at a time with the Rodion 3B or blast them into shreds with the Akron HC. Each of these guns are sure to be a boon to any heister fortunate enough to get their hands on them.

Aran G2
A single-action pistol with the punch of a rifle, while counting as a secondary sniper. This unique weapon is a treasure of any arsenal, moddable to fill the role of a seriously accurate, high-concealment pistol or even a pin-point accurate long-range sniper with the simple addition of a stock and scope.
Comes with an Exclusive Set.
6 unique mods
1 scope usable with compatible weapons

Rodion 3B
This triple barreled monster of an Assault Rifle is able to fire either sequentially or in a terrifying volley. With a high-capacity magazine you’ll be able to keep firing with the power of a three-man firing squad.
Comes with an Exclusive Set.
6 unique mods
5 mods usable with compatible weapons from the AK family

Akron HC
A stable and accurate LMG able to either fire accurate full-auto or, if that doesn’t do it for you, convert it into a deadly DMR with the included conversion kit.
Comes with an Exclusive Set.
5 unique mods

Hostile Takeover Heist

Blaine Keegan, employer of our recent gun supplier Gemma McShay has introduced himself to the Payday Gang and is offering a job. Keegan has been trying to move away from his more illicit business and wants to get his hand into the Texas oil trade.
Unfortunately, the CEO of SERA Inc has blocked every attempt by Keegan to get his foot in the door, and it’s time that ends.

Keegan wants the Payday Gang to break into the SERA R&D facility in Dallas. Once in, they'll ruin SERA’s future by stealing its most prized research project, and they'll expose the CEO's shady past by digging up enough blackmail material to ensure Keegan's smooth transition into a Texas oil baron.

The Hostile Takeover heist is available either as a stand-alone DLC or as part of the Hostile Takeover Bundle.
