The Payday 2 Secret Theory Thread!
Welcome to the thread! To catch up on all the info so far, read these:
Documentation covering more speculative info

Try not to post anything already covered in these.

Also, if you want to tell someone about something, DONT ADD ME, POST IT HERE.

Steam group:

The following is the original OP for this thread and my old theory for the images (It is wrong so try not to use it as a basis for all your theories) it is merely here for prosterity:

"As a starter, Bain's guide mentions secrets and also mentions the big ARG in Payday 1. As well as this it offers 4 odd images that apparently have a meaning. I have had a quick look through and noticed something. (This is a copy paste of a post I made on a discussion I made using a phone.

This may sound far fetched, but hear me out on this one. Looking at the 4 images at the end I've come up with a maybe OTT theory but have a look. (First image) On rats, make 3 bags of meth (alchemy and beakers, as well as 3 on the dice and book) (second image/day) Have the gangsters deceive you (mentax in Latin) out of luck (horseshoe) or maybe deceive them, take one bag and leave them with 2 (chess pieces) all within a time limit (hourglass). (Picture 3) have the person take the bag and the info all without attacking and have the same person (picture 4) possibly suicide in the bus next day or something. It's farfetched but meh. Each image could represent a different player or there may be more. Also each image has small 3 letter words. Last 3 say CGO and the first I think was BDN. These are most likely signatures though. Well, that's me done.

I would love people to look into these pictures as they DO hold a purpose."

3 Charaters?

HL3 Confirmed :P

It's all a bit of fun. Those pictures must mean something though. I may try this for a laugh tomorrow.

Interesting. As you said, far fetched, but it makes sense. Anything is something.

If I had more evidence and details I may be willing to properly try a run like this out.

Well all I've been able to discover is that mendax was the hacker Pseudonym of Julian Assange. *shrug*
The Pump 13 aug, 2013 @ 5:45pm 
I saw that too. I think my theory is a bit more likely where mendax is Latin for decieving or lying. Anyhow, keep up the searching!
DrSNAFU 13 aug, 2013 @ 5:55pm 
My thoughts are... create 3 bags of meth in the alchemy, but lose two of them to the cops in the timed escape level. Then steal the plans and the single meth bag from the thugs. Not sure what to make of the last panel other than perhaps finish the bridge level with one of your party in custody?

And my thoughts on the significance of Mendax on the gallows is that it's saying cheaters will be punished... or something to that effect.
The Pump 13 aug, 2013 @ 6:02pm 
that actually makes a good bit of sense, its also boosted by the lucky horseshoe as the escape is random and have a time limit (hourglass)

Skull with a hole straight in the center... Kill all of the gang members with headshots?

And DrSNAFU seems like he's almost onto something, but I'm not sure if it's right... Steal back the bag and intel, and don't kill anyone to represent the sword in the ground? I cant tell but stealing the bag might not be right either, the shadow might be to represent that you rob them on the deal because you only traded one bag. Manage a peaceful deal despite only using one bag?

Final words: The entire thing seems to depict only ONE heister. You might have to solo the heist. The final picture has 32 tally marks, the chains, (Possible character usage hint) and a rope for hanging. Suicide on the bridge somehow after killing 32 police?
The Pump 14 aug, 2013 @ 2:10am 
This is getting good. Thats an excellent explanation for the skull and that really gives a reason for the final image.
[FR] Genroa 14 aug, 2013 @ 2:16am 
There's a secret, it's pretty sure. Those images are a secret.
The Pump 14 aug, 2013 @ 2:29am 
I think thats 100% definate
