How to open the Dirty Ice Vault in PAYDAY 3: Get a red keycard
The first thing you need before you can open the vault on Dirty Ice is a red keycard. There are a couple of different ways to get your hands on a red keycard.
Select security guards in the Ashton Fine Jewelry Shop will have red keycards pinned to their backside. If you're going in Loud, you can kill one of these guards and steal the red keycard off their corpse. If you opt for Stealth, you can pickpocket a red keycard.
Alternatively, you can find a red keycard inside a closet in the basement of the Ashton Fine Jewelry Shop. To enter the basement, you must input a code you can discover by perusing the emails on the computer in the Manager's Office. In the basement is a door to a safe with a red keycard next to it.
- Dirty Ice is one of eight heists available at the launch of PAYDAY 3
How to open the Dirty Ice Vault in PAYDAY 3: Escort a hostage or direct a fellow heister to the Manager's Office
Once you have a red keycard, your next destination is the Manager's Office. If you're playing solo, you will need to take someone hostage and bring them to the Manager's Office. If you're playing with friends, you don't need a hostage.
- While PAYDAY 3 is designed with co-op in mind, you can play it single-player
How to open the Dirty Ice Vault in PAYDAY 3: Press the red button and swipe the red keycard simultaneously
After you get to the Manager's Office, shove the hostage into the red button on the desk, and they will reluctantly hold it down for a few seconds. In co-op, feel free to instruct another heister to press the button instead.
While someone is holding the red button, hustle out of the Manager's Office and quickly swipe the red keycard on the keycard reader to the left of the Dirty Ice Vault to unlock it!
