Payday 2 is the sequel to Payday: The Heist, OVERKILL's take on a Left 4 Dead-style co-op shooter. The game has had a wide variety of crossovers with other forms of media, such as other game franchises, movies, musicians, and even a pair of YouTubers, all of which were added in the many DLC's the game got over the years.
Active development for the game had originally stopped in November 2018, but due to the absolute failure that was their The Walking Dead game and with Payday 2 having been their only cash cow for years, they were then forced to continue development on Payday 2, and so the Payday 2: Ultimate Edition" bundle was renamed to "Payday 2: Legacy Edition" and new DLCs began going on sale starting in November 2019.

Stuff Bain and Co. Say that the devs didn't expect for us to see!

Radio Scanners are apparently very loud...
There are eight masks from the beta that never got included for use in the actual game, not even being obtainable with trainers. One of these is a mask named The Twister. Presumably, it went unused and was removed after the first beta ended due to its similarity to Obito Uchiha's mask from the Naruto series. There are also three different masks, four for both male and female variants, both having Blood, Clown, and Stone versions of them. In addition, a Voodoo mask featuring dreadlocks that support NVIDIA PhysX is among these beta masks, which also didn't get included.
An unused mask included with the Car Shop heist during the Spring Break Hype Train event in 2015 was released, alongside the "The Tids" mask; an F1 racing helmet. Its resources can be found in the game files, but no programming nor a black market icon for it exists.
Unused Loot Screen
This seems to be an early mock-up of the loot screen and has appeared in the beta builds of the game being released over Steam. The music is I Will Give You My All from Payday: The Heist, whereas the heister's ringtone is clearly the codec call sound effect from Metal Gear Solid.

Watchdogs Day 1 Escape Driver Death
During Watchdogs Day 1, the escape driver Twitch is placed off playable bounds behind a wall. If you manage to hit him with an explosion, he'll be killed before he drives in, and he will play a unique animation where his car will hit a police cruiser and a few other empty cars, after which he flips the car over on its top. Shortly after this occurs the game will crash due to it calling for a removed entity. Twitch is killed at 2:59, and the death animation starts at 4:25.
Out Of Bounds Objects
Car Shop Placeholder Text
By using a game trainer in the Car Shop heist and arresting yourself while driving a car can trigger the camera to be frozen beneath the map and placeholder text that says "Bleh Bleh In 00"
Laundromat Safe House Markers
On the roof of the safe house, there are what appear to be markers of different items and actions in the game, some of them already featured in the safe house. These are probably here for development purposes.
US Capitol Building
In the Laundromat Safe House map, a model of the US Capitol resides outside the map boundaries. Using mods to access the free-camera view, you can see this building.
Unused Laundromat Safe House Rooms
In the Old Laundromat Safe House map, there are several unused rooms behind bricked-off walls, most likely to test out features in the game during development. Using mods, it is possible to get into said rooms. The rooms also logically connect to each other with bricked-off doors, suggesting that at least some of the rooms were going to be used for features released in a later update, such as the safehouse customization feature, which ended up being exclusive to the new safehouse instead.
New Safe House Cube
The New Safe House has a White "Cube" placed out of bounds, likely from the development of the safehouse. Interesting to note is that the safehouse refuses to load correctly on the Linux version upon release, so OVERKILL likely reexported the level again and forgot about the cube while doing so. It was removed sometime in July 2018 and returned the following Month (coinciding with Joy's PC release).
Drill Screen Reflection
The Linux port doesn't have an on-screen effect when you look at certain screens, this applies to all drills, saws, and most laptops. Curiously, the placements of these effects are quite inconsistent in a given level. For example, The effect is present on a computer terminal in the jewelry store in the Stealing Xmas but absent from the drills that you use at that level.
Panic Room/Border Crossing Door Color
The room containing the Panic Room vault has a metal door that is meant to be red to signify it's the correct door to find, but on the Linux port, it's grey for seemingly no reason. This is also true for Border Crossing, which shares the same door asset.
