The exterminator is the room-clearer. They are the ones you call when you need to get rid of some unwanted thorns in your side, with the side-effect of sending a message writ in blood.

Exterminators are not quiet, but they are fast on their feet and in the enemy's face. This perk deck requires fast-thinking and a constant, heavy stream of kills to maintain viability. The minute your rampage ends, you are no more than a sitting duck, bound to go down within seconds. This is for those who, like me, believe that the game's Sociopath perk deck wasn't "Hotline Miami" enough, having you stomp around in bulking armor and tanking shots.

Version 2 (uses the new perk deck updates!)
Perk 1: Midnight Animal
Your Health is decreased by 50%, but you gain 35% Dodge Chance. Additionally, your Movement Speed is increased when your Health is low.

Perk 3: Down Under
Your armor will always regenerate after 1.5 seconds. Furthermore, every kill you make when your armor is depleted speeds up your Armor Regeneration even further.

Perk 5: Homicide
Every kill you or your crew makes gives you 5 Armor. This may only occur 10 times per 15 seconds, but this cooldown is reduced by 1 second for each 10% Health you have missing.

Perk 7: Hard News
When you successfully get shot, you gain +20% Dodge Chance until you perform a dodge. This may only trigger once every 4 seconds.

Perk 9: Final Cut
After you perform a melee kill, every consecutive melee hit deals x10 damage! In Addition, once per second, killing an enemy has a 75% chance of sending nearby enemies into a Panic.

For a more "authentic" Hotline Miami feel, mix this deck with Frenzy & Berserker. This effectively reduces the cooldown of "Homicide" to 10 times every 8 seconds! 

Note that on Deathwish and One Down, one shot will be plenty enough to kill you in a single hit without your armor, so
make sure you pack those medic bags, Dallas.

Version 1 (outdated yet still works and available to download)
Detailed Perks (note that the usual perks 2,4,6 and 8 are unchanged from other decks)
Tier 1: Midnight Animal:
Your maximum health is decreased by 50% but you gain 35% dodge chance.
You gain a 10% increase in movement speed.
Tier 3: Down Under:
Your armor will always regenerate after 1.5 seconds no matter the situation. 
Additionally, when your armor is down, each kill will speed up your armor recovery rate.
Tier 5: Homicide:
Each kill you or your crew does gives you 5 armor, a maximum of 10 times  every 15 seconds. 
Every 10% health you have missing reduces the cooldown by 1 second.
Tier 7: Hard News:
Whenever you successfully get shot, you gain 20% dodge chance until you perform a dodge. 
After this, a 4 second cooldown occurs before this may happen again.
Tier 9: Final Cut:
Murdering via melee now heals 10% of your Health. 
In addition, killing an enemy at close range has a 75% chance of making nearby enemies panic, a maximum of once per second.
Finally, bladed weapons do 100% extra damage and blunt weapons do 200% extra damage.

Version 0.1: First upload. Tested it on Overkill and Deathwish and seems relatively balanced to me. There shouldn't
be too many bugs since this deck uses abilities stolen from other decks, but let me know.

Version 1: Full Release.
- Tested it a lot more to make sure no bugs exist.
- Added a 10% speed boost to the first perk.
- Added a 100% melee damage boost with sharp weapons.
- Added a 200% melee damage boost with blunt weapons.

Looks a lot like Rokk's Sociopath.

This perk deck goes great with crit builds! The old one especially. Oneshotting a dozer without slaughtering a few cops with a Machete just feels satisfying.

Oops missed that! Fixed now. Sorry for the inconvenience

I was talking about that consecutive damage boost, it doesn't proc in-game (neither on hit like the perk normally does nor on kill like it says in your deck) and there's no mention of a "melee_stacking_hit_damage_multiplier_1" anywhere in the files.

12-02-2017, 05:58 PM
It's not missing as much as not needed any longer due to Overkill adding that all consecutive melee hits do 10 times damage. If you think it's still needed, let me know.

The melee damage bonus seems to be missing in the new version.

If you open the skilltree.lua you need to scroll down to the first super long line with a bunch of upgrades. There, you need to delete the 2nd and 3rd upgrades in that line. If you're still having issues, let me know and I could do it for you.

how can i remove movement speed buff effect, its quite annoying due to my play style, makes me dizzy and cant do headshots

11-05-2017, 10:17 AM
I added a few minor things to make the deck more viable on Death Wish (due to increased enemy health).
First, a 10% movement speed boost, because it works well with the rest.
Most importantly, there's now a 100% melee damage buff to bladed weapons, and a 200% increase for blunt weapons.
That way, you're not forced to use the Katana and blunt weapons are brought to par, meaning you can finally have your
character smash heads in with a baseball bat and still be viable.

Sorry I haven't been replying to comments. I know I'm way overdue, so let's do this.

@Alcat101: Thanks! I'll definitely check it out!

@Yuuta Togashi: I used the titles of the first chapters in Hotline Miami 2, sort of like how they did the same thing for Sociopath, using Hotline Miami 1. That being said, Midniiiiight Animaaaaal!

@Hisdeuan: Thanks, that's exactly the sort of feel I was going for!

@Skyfry428: Cool! Glad you like it! Let me know if you can think of any improvements. Keep in mind though that I'm super new to modding so I'm mostly limited to re-using perks from other decks at the moment.

@Suckin Broccoli Stems: Firstly, I like your name. Secondly, not at all, I made it so all of the perks are unlocked as soon as you install the mod. All you need to do is equip it.

Do we have to level up this perk deck fully for it to work?

10-11-2017, 12:02 AM
I. Love. This. Perkdeck.

10-05-2017, 05:05 PM
Very fun, actually! Feels a bit like dodge-oriented anarchist.

@Alcat101 That’s a link to the Luger Artillery mod.

There's a new payday 2 lua code dump since the luajit changes, and it's likely YaPh1l won't update his repo anymore
Now TdLq maintains payday 2 luajit code dump:
