Grants anonymity, friendship.

Masks of this design were used to explore primitive Gungeon-like structures filled with money, now referred to as "Mungeons". Anonymity was important to Mungeoneers of this time. The friendly clown design is thought to have helped Mungeoneers make peace with the native inhabitants.

Clown Mask is a passive item.

Before it is unlocked, it has a 5% chance to replace an item in the shop or a 100% chance if the Biggest Wallet achievement has been unlocked, and costs 9999 Money.

It can be acquired in 2 ways:

  • Stealing it from the shop
  • Causing the shopkeeper to close his shop by either:
    • Firing a gun in the shop a few times
    • Failing to steal an item
    • Luring the Lord of the Jammed into the shop

After it has been unlocked, it will appear as a regular item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Summons one of the following clown-masked familiars.
    • Wolf (the clown with the red mouth) will attack enemies close up with a taser, continuously stunning them.
    • Houston (the clown with the pink eyelids) will guard the Gungeoneers by occasionally activating mini Blanks that negate enemy bullets.
    • Chains (the clown with blue slits over his eyes) wields a shotgun which he will use to attack opponents. Each shotgun pellet does 5 damage.
  • If the player carries the Loot Bag or Drill, an additional familiar will be summoned for each.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy Tea for Two - If the player also has Teapot, when reloading Teapot, Wolf, Houston, and Chains will have a small red aura around them. Every enemy in this aura will be ignited.
  • The order that the familiars are acquired is random.
  • Picking up Clown Mask increases the chance of finding the other Payday 2 items, Loot Bag and Drill.
  • Picking up Clown Mask will replace the Gungeoneer's regular appearance with Dallas, a clown with an American flag mask. It is the only item from the trio to give that cosmetic effect.
  • Houston's blanks are affected by Ammolets, so it's a good strategy to buy them from Old Red or Shops.
  • The projectiles from Chains's shotgun will be destroyed by the player's blanks.
  • If the player is carrying Loot Bag or Drill with the Clown Mask and drops either of these items, a familiar will be lost until the item is picked up again.
  • The mask replaces the paradox effect.
  • If duplicates of this item are somehow obtained, further summons more clown allies.
    • The order of the clowns appearing when collecting the item goes: Chains, Wolf, and Houston.
    • However, once the three clowns are obtained, no more will spawn if further duplicates are collected.
  • Chains shot gun bullets will be affected by bullet upgrades like frost bullets, but not scatter shot.

Trivia[ | ]

  • This item is a reference to PAYDAY 2, and was added in a cross-promotional event.
  • This particular clown mask belongs to Dallas, the mastermind of the PAYDAY gang. Together with the three familiars (Wolf, Chains, and Hoxton), these four characters are the protagonists of PAYDAY 2's predecessor, PAYDAY: The Heist.
  • If the player beats the game with Clown Mask, when falling through the vortex during the credits roll, the player will be a skeleton. The reason for this is because the skeleton is the base player model or sprite and the appearance the Clown Mask gives the player is not a regular Gungeoneer, so the game uses the base player model or sprite. The skeleton also might be caused by the old animation for the player traveling to the past or falling through the vortex had the body and organs of the player fly off, shown in various unused sprites.

Bugs[ | ]

  • PS4 Occasionally, after traveling to the Marine's past, the player will be in a glitched state where they retain the appearance of Dallas and dodge rolling no longer provides invulnerability.
  • While on the Twitch launch system, buying clown mask has a chance for it to appear in the next shop
