This Build focuses on variations of weapons (LMG, Rifle and Shotgun) associated with Stoic Perk.
Build contains a DLC and NON-DLC variations and it was tested on Death Sentence…

 

Introduction

So there is nothing like best build because everyone prefers different things.

And when it comes to Death Sentence, you will need to know what your doing.
So here I will now show you in my opinion the best build construct on the highest difficulty using the Stoic perk.

For more efficient distribution of the skill points you gonna need to have Infame 5 and lvl 100.

I would rather write down details of those abilities, so you can adapt the build for lower lvls.

About Build

Stoic is one of the strongest perks, if used correctly, incorrect usage will make this perk significantly weaker. As with some other perks, you lose your throwable but you gain hip flask which is main perk’s strenght, if you are not gonna use hip flask, you might as well drop this perk and use something else.

Stoic must be used strategically, if you use it at wrong time, the damage over time might kill you. This perk doesn’t make you invincible and it takes lot of practice to just time it right, read carefully perks description so you know what to expect.

Lot’s of builds these days prefer light armor over heavy because of the mobility and dodge. However in this build you can use either light or heavy armor, it’s up to you, but light armor is prefered.

For equipment, first aid kits are reccomended.

First Aid Kit
PAYDAY 2 - Royal Drinker (Stoic perk variations)

If you use first aid kids, place them strategically, so you can use them in a pinch, place them next to objectives you gonna hang out for while.

As for weapons, automatic shotguns or lmgs are more favored in this build because of their damage and fire rate ,assault rifles can be used as substitute if you want.

Good luck !
