Using Full Reset Mod to Clear Progress and Achievements
By Your Favourite MLM Hunbot
Visual guide to using the Full Clear Profile mod to reset all progress.

DO NOT POST RESET PROOF HERE. I don't check the comments here so DO NOT POST RESET PROOF HERE.

*This doesn't reset your playtime or take away DLC or skins you own. Steam takes care of all those things.

If you're going through this guide to be unbanned, be aware that you only get this chance once. If you're banned a second time for the same thing, you won't be unbanned again; that ban will be permanent. If you need help, contact someone in the list at the bottom of this guide.
Do not post it here.

If you're using Linux, please see here to installl the BLT hook: After step 8, you can move to the Downloading and Installing Full Clear Progress Mod section of this guide.

Find your Payday 2 folder on your hard drive.
With your game closed, use File Explorer to find your main Payday 2 folder on your hard drive at (your drive letter:)Steam>steamapps>common>PAYDAY 2 and open it.

If there is a file there called IPHLPAPI.dll, delete it.
Downloading and Installing BLT
First, download the most recent BLT zip file located here

and unzip it, dropping the Mods folder and the IPHLPAPI.dll file directly into the PAYDAY 2 folder:

Or using SuperBLT, following the instructions given here:
If the mod doesn't work for you with BLT2, you may need to switch to SuperBLT.

Downloading and Installing Full Clear Progress Mod
Open the mods folder you just placed. Go to and download the mod.

Unzip the file and put it into the mods folder. The files inside should now look like this:

Start your game. If it asks you to update the mods, say yes and restart.

Look under Options in the main menu

and look to see if there is an Option that says "LUA MODS" Don't click it, just check. If it shows up, you have correctly installed the mod. It should look like this:

Now we're ready to clear progress.
Clearing Your Progress
Below the LUA MODS button on the Options menu, there is another that says CLEAR PROGRESS

Press it and you will get this pop-up:

Press yes. Now go to your Main Menu and check that everything is set to 0. Open your inventories to check that they are also empty.
If You're Resetting for an Unban
Take a screenshot of your Main Menu showing that you've reset ingame progress by pressing F12, close the game, and choose Upload from the window that pops up.

Copy the link from your screenshots section and give it to a moderator. DO NOT POST IT HERE. I don't check the comments here for that so you could be waiting a lot longer. Be aware that you only get this chance once. If you're banned a second time for the same thing, you won't be unbanned again; that ban will be permanent.

Here is the list of moderators able to help you. Leave a message on the profile about why you're adding so we can get to you faster:

And you're done!

Error messages
If, on your next play of the game, you recieve any error message about your save such as this or any other:

Press NO. Otherwise you will have to redo the entire reset again or risk being permanently banned. That's not something you want and not something we want. Press no, open your inventory and check them. Purchase an item or visit safehouse and then quit the game. This should save the clear game over the old save.

This guide is outdated, I'd highly recommend using the updated guide to help reset your progress.

It is now under advanced settings, and it's worded slightly differently like "Reset all progress or something" but it worked fine for me

Doesn't work, the "Clear Progression" Button doesn't appear.

Can confirm that this still works. If it does not work using BLT, delete all BLT files and use SuperBLT.

It doesn't show the mods, lua mods folder and clear progress option. But only I can see, that they are installed.

there's no Lua Mods option for me in the menu, I did everything as it was in the guide

Im not seeing a mods option when I go to options. Am I doing something wrong or does this no longer work?

But why do you care about FBI files?
Myscherzo Jun 16, 2019 @ 11:10pm 
I did this solution and reset everything, but the FBI Files still don't work. Now it says 0 level, but I'm already 9 level and it didn't count the people I killed.
