How to activate the free PAYDAY 2: VR DLC
How to activate the free PAYDAY 2: VR DLC
With this update a new free PAYDAY 2: VR DLC has been added to the PAYDAY 2 Store page.

You can find the DLC here:

Click download on the DLC store page and it will activate the VR mode. With the DLC active a new prompt will appear everytime you start PAYDAY 2. Here you can choose if you want to play the game in VR or desktop mode.
Steam Launch Options Popup[]

This popup will appear even if you do not have a VR headset plugged in or Steam VR installed.
You can disable the prompt again by deactivating the PAYDAY 2: VR DLC in your list of DLCs in your steam client.
Steam DLC List[]

You will need to restart the steam client for any changes to take effect.

If you want to create a shortcut or want to use PAYDAY 2: VR with familiy shareing here is how you can do it:
1. Browse to the PAYDAY 2 local files via the game properties in Steam.
2. Create a new text file called steam_appid.txt
3. Enter 218620 into the file and save.
4. In the same directory double click or create a shortcut to payday2_win32_release_vr.exe.
5. PAYDAY 2 will then start in VR.
