She comes with a new perk called Burglar that allows her to pick locks, bag bodies, and answer pages faster. The perk also affords her a "high tolerance to pain," allowing her to heal quickly from wounds.

Clover also comes with a special mask, a high-power L-95 assault rifle, and a skull-breaking shillelagh melee weapon (above left). "Clover grew up in a rough house in a rough part of town. Her ancestors were fighters in every generation, and she is fiercely dedicated to her Irish heritage," her description reads.

In other PayDay 2 news, developer Overkill Software has also released a new expansion called "The Diamond Heist." As its name suggests, this mission involves stealing precious jewels. You can buy the expansion today on Steam for around $6.
