PayDay 3 is a continuation of the popular coop-shooting game series, in which players must carefully plan and execute bank robberies. This can be helped by the introduced Favors mechanic, which significantly facilitates the passing of missions. In our guide we explain what it brings to the game and how to use it.

PayDay 3 – What is Favor?

During the early access of Payday 3, it was noticeable that players were not using Favor completely. This is a pack of extra resources that can be allocated when beginning a given mission. It appears on the map at the start of the game. You can equip:

  1. Ammo Bag,
  2. Armor Bag,
  3. Medic Bag,
  4. Zipline Bag.

Each type of Favor offers something different, so it's a good idea to talk with your team what each player will take with them.

PayDay 3 – How to Get Favor?

Before starting the match, in the main menu of the game, go to the Vendors tab and pick Arms Dealer. Moving the slider down, you should see Favors. Each of them costs $10000, which is a really small price for what they offer.

PayDay 3 – How to Equip Favor?

After buying the right kind of Favor, start the game. You will find yourself in the team lobby while looking for players for the match. On the upper left side of the screen, you will see a tab with all the Favors that your team has selected.

Meanwhile, on the bottom left side of the screen, you will find your purchased Favors. Clicking on a particular type will equip it, making it available to the team when performing that particular mission.
