Payday 3 (stylized as PAYDAY 3) is the sequel to Payday 2.

The following weapons appear in the video game Payday 3:


Unlike the previous game, submachine guns are no longer classified as secondary weapons, which is for now reserved for sidearms. In addition, a new class of weapon is added into the series called "Overkill weapons". These powerful weapons can be called in to be dropped via helicopter during an assault wave to use after a cool-down, but they cannot be holstered and have a limited ammo supply. Furthermore, a new feature in Payday 3 is the addition of "preset weapons". These weapons are equipped with preset attachments that cannot be changed, while containing a weapon skin exclusive to the preset. Other than that, there is virtually no difference between the "preset weapons" and the regular weapons with the same attachments.


Glock 17 MOS

The Glock 17 returns from Payday 2, now modeled after the Gen 5 MOS version and renamed to "Stryk 7", referencing the Glock 18C's name in the previous games (Stryk 18c). The new name may also be a reference to the infamous "Glock 7" scene from Die Hard 2.

Glock 17 MOS (5th Generation) - 9x19mm. The in-game weapon does not have front slide serrations, but does have the grip of this version.

SIG-Sauer P226 Legion

The SIG-Sauer P226 Legion replaces the original P226 from Payday 2, but still retains the name "Signature 40".

SIG-Sauer P320-M17

The SIG-Sauer P320-M17 appears as the "Signature 403".

STI Perfect 10

A silver-coloured STI Perfect 10 appears as the "SP Model 11". For some reason the hammer is always shown in the down position, which would make shooting the gun impossible.

STI Perfect 10 - 10mm Auto


Smith & Wesson Model 29

The Smith & Wesson Model 29 returns from Payday 2 as the "J&M Castigo 44" (combining its original Payday 2 name with a spoof of Smith & Wesson from OVERKILL's The Walking Dead as a prefix) with an obligatory Dirty Harry reference in its flavor text making up for a lack of one in Payday 2.

Smith & Wesson Model 29 - .44 Magnum
"Do you feel lucky, punk? Well, you should. This handgun's the apex of firepower, and it's all yours."

Chiappa Rhino 50DS

A Chiappa Rhino 50DS appears in the game as the "Sforza Bison".

Chiappa Rhino 50DS - .357 Magnum

Submachine Guns

Heckler & Koch MP7A2

The Heckler & Koch MP7A2 returns from the previous game, renamed to "SG Compact-7", taking cues off the MP5's name from the previous game (Compact 5) as both SMGs are made by H&K in real life. For some reason the player character will slap the front of the SMG during the empty reload, despite there being no function there to chamber the MP7.

Heckler & Koch MP7A2 - 4.6x30mm

IWI Uzi Pro

The IWI Uzi Pro replaces the Micro Uzi from the previous game as the "ZIV Commando". Despite firing in full-auto, it is modeled after the pistol variant, and the fire selector is incorrectly set to safe.

IWI Uzi Pro Pistol - 9x19mm
"Quick, nimble and lethal. With a pocket-sized weapon capable of full auto, you'll be prepared for any spur-of-the-moment action that might be around the corner." Pictured is the "Kick-Murder" preset for the submachine gun, complete with an Osprey silencer.

The LWRC SMG-45 was added into the game as the "WAR-45" in the "Chapter 1 - Syntax Error" DLC pack.

LWRC SMG-45, 2020 model - .45 ACP


The SIG-Sauer MPX returns, now being modeled after the 2nd generation version and renamed to "FIK PC9", with the company name "FIK" being a spoof on SIG, a name previously used in OVERKILL's The Walking Dead. Despite firing in fully-automatic mode, the model currently has a safe/semi-auto only safety, with the selector set to semi-automatic.

The AKM returns from Payday 2 under the new name "KU-59".

The FN SCAR-H returns as the "VF-7S".

Colt Law Enforcement Carbine

The "CAR-4" returns from Payday 2, although the model is now of a Colt Law Enforcement Carbine rather than a proper M4A1. Despite this, it features the third pin that is present on select-fire AR-15 lower receivers.

Mk 18 Mod 0

Equipping the "CQC Barrel" turns the LE Carbine into a Mk 18 Mod 0.

Colt Model 901

The "Ranged Barrel" is a full 20" M16A4 style upper (KAC M5 RAS included), producing a Colt Model 901/RO901 type configuration albeit with the collapsible stock by default.

Colt Model 901 - 5.56x45mm NATO

Geissele URG-I/Super Duty

The trailers and promotional screenshots show an AR-15 variant loaded with Magpul PMags, and fitted with a Magpul CTR carbine stock, KAC iron sights, a Surefire SOCOM muzzle brake, and a Geissele URG-I 14.5" upper, and three variants are usable by NPCs, but as of launch, it is not available to the player. Friendly bots use it without any additional attachments, low-level SWAT units use it with only an Eotech XPS (also not usable by the player), and higher-level units use it with the XPS, as well as a black AN/PEQ-15 mounted on the top rail, a large weapon light on the right side MLOK rail, and a suppressor.

Interestingly, the sighted variants retain the iron sights but folded, in a back-up sight configuration. All usable weapons in the game lose their sights when equipped with additional ones.

The rather obscure QBZ-191 appears as the "Northwest B-9". Its description correctly identifies its place of origin and manufacture as China.

QBZ-191 - 5.8x42mm
"A light-weight model built with burst-fire tactics in mind. Made in China, like all good shit."

Springfield Armory M1A (in EBR chassis)

A Springfield Armory M1A in a tan EBR chassis makes an appearance as a marksman rifle named the "SA-A144".

"This high-precision rifle is a favorite among spec ops units. Your enemies won't know what hit them."

Customized Ruger 10/22

A customized Ruger 10/22 with aftermarket parts referred to as the "FIK-22 TLR" was added in the "Chapter 1 - Syntax Error" DLC pack.

Ruger 10/22 with black polymer stock - .22 LR (for reference)


Fostech Origin-12

The Fostech Origin-12 appears as the Bulldozer's standard shotgun, replacing the Remington Model 870 Field Gun/Reinfeld 880 that it used in Payday 2.

Remington Model 870

A stubby variant of the Remington Model 870 also returns, retaining its "Reinfield 880" name from the two previous games. It can be customized extensively, including turning it into a stubby version, a Express Tactical Magpul variant or its shorter TAC-14 variant. SWAT Officers use customized versions of the shotgun.

Sniper Rifles

Remington 700 PSS

The Remington 700PSS, named as the Reinfeld 900S (sharing the same company name as the Remington 870 as they are, of course, made by Remington) appears in the game.

Gepard GM6 Lynx

The Gepard GM6 Lynx, named the "HET-5 Red Fox", appears as an "Overkill Weapon". It has a thermal scope attached to it at all times and impossibly low recoil when aiming down the scope.

Gepard M6 Lynx - .50 BMG


Milkor M32A1

The Milkor M32A1 appears as the "Marcom Mamba MGL" as an "Overkill weapon" and replaces the Milkor MGL Mk 1L from Payday 2.
