Even though Payday 2 is all about heists and finding ways to get as much loot as possible in the shortest amount of time, that’s not all. It also involves a copious amount of resisting armies of police as they try to take you and your crew down.

Still, each heist includes a segment that allows you to wander around in the open, set things up, and just generally get the lay of the land. The devs took this into consideration when they released the different types of Anniversary Statues and hid them all around the different environments and scenarios. While the limited time cash blaster gun is no longer available, you can still collect all these statues which pay tribute to the game's history.
