Payday 2 Framing Frame Heist Walkthrough

What makes this heist so cool is that it has heavy emphasis on team work and stealth. It is possible to execute the heist without stealth, but the consequences are immediately noticeable in the second and third day of the heist.

Basically, contractor Elephant wants you to do two jobs in one go, starting with stealing some pricey paints from an art gallery. Now, let’s have a look at Day 1, when you’re set on doing exactly that.

Day #1

So, you start off on the gallery.

There are multiple ways to enter the place, of which the most commonly preferred is through the toilet windows. However, the best place to actually enter is the main entrance itself, because you have a much better shot at remaining undetected once you take the guard at the front desk hostage.

Once you manage to do that, it’s time to do a clean sweep of the entire area. The gallery will probably have three or four more guards. Have a couple of guys clear them out with silencers. Make sure that it’s clean and quiet, and done before they notice your presence.

Remember to answer the Pager. Here, the Mastermind’s Smooth Talker skill can really come in super-handy because of the large amount of guards there are.

Be careful of the cameras. Just about every part of the gallery and every red-marked painting (which are the ones you need to steal) has a camera.

Don’t kill guards within the camera’s field of view. You can use your ECM Jammer, but the best thing to do is to hit the camera (not shoot) to disable it. Do this only after you have taken out all the guards!

Once that is done, it’s all down to collecting paintings. Make sure you collect more than six, and make sure you weren’t detected. Now, it’s time for Day 2.

Day #2

Day 2 is fairly simple, especially if you were successful at being stealthy and managed to collect six paintings. Answer the phone, put the paintings on the table, and throw the bags on the roof.

Now, it’s time to leave. You’ll have to go through an abandoned warehouse.

If you screwed things up on Day 1, there is a very high chance that the FBI or SWAT will ambush you. This can also happen if you collected less than six paintings.

Day #3

Day 3 is pretty complex.

If you have the Mastermind’s Smooth Talker skill, then you will probably have a lot of advantage. You can start off in the same manner as in Day 1, by taking one guard as hostage.

Next, take out the remaining guards in the entire area. Since this place has multiple levels, guards directly above or below you can often even hear silenced shots. Thus, try to take them out with melee attacks while being undetected.

The best place to dispose of the bodies is where you started the mission i.e. on the rooftop area. Guards do tend to come to the rooftop, but they’ll often overlook the upper part of the roof, which should be the place to pile up bodies.

Now, for the items that you need to find.

The reason I recommend sweeping the place and eliminating all guards is because the key items can be scattered anywhere in map. You’ll have to search every nook and corner for the five items. Make sure the search is thorough.

Check the cameras on the roof if you’re having problems finding a certain item; perhaps you’ll spot it there.

Once you have the items, go to the roof and gain access to the camera for the safe area. It’s located behind a movable bookshelf. The problem is that there are multiple bookshelves, and right bookshelf is completely random.

Once again, you’ll have go around the entire place and search for it.

Once you find the bookshelf (and hence the safe), you will need to transport coke down to it. Often there is gold there also, but it is protected by laser trip alarms. If you’re playing with a team, have one of your characters go back up to the computers and turn off the laser trip (it turns off only for short durations, so you can’t do this during a solo run).

Once all this is done, it’s time to say goodbye and enjoy the rewards. Don’t forget to share your tips and strategies with us by commenting below!
