Installing 'mod_override' mods

As the name implies, the ‘mod_override’ folder is used to override existing assets in the game’s files. These can range from the color of your health bar to the appearance of the enemies in-game. Installing these is very simple, so let’s get started!

  1. Locate your PAYDAY 2 folder. By default, this is

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY 2.

  1. Check if the mod shows up in the list. If it does, then you’ve installed it properly!
