PAYDAY 2: All Special Keycards and Lost Safes

This Guide will help you find the hidden Keycards and Lost Safes across 4 maps – which contain voice recordings known as the Lost Tapes!



Welcome Heisters 🙂

This guide will help you find all special keycards and Lost Safes on the 4 different maps.
As of right now you can only access the hidden tapes for the shadow raid map.
Possible upcoming maps might be: Hell’s Island, The Diamond Heist, The White House (this info is unconfirmed)

There are several possible spawning locations for each keycard and safe per map and you will find them all in this guide!

Happy hunting and enjoy the recordings <3

What are you looking for?

The Special Keycards:
You will need to find 2 hidden keycards looking like this.

Unlike normal keycards these special keycards can be stacked in your inventory – allowing you to carry more than 1 keycard at a time. This makes it easier to complete the heist on your own!

The Lost Safe:
You will need to find 1 hidden safe looking like this and use the keycards on it!
