The Cattle Prod, Bouncing Betty & More New Weapons of the Deathmatch Made in Heaven DLC Pack

Posted on January 21 2013, 3:05pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games

Tomorrow's release of the Deathmatch Made in Heaven DLC pack for Max Payne 3 brings the four co-op and competitive modes revealed earlier and lots more including this brand new set of treacherous close-combat weapons to the multiplayer arena. Check out a rundown of this new crop of weapons you’ll be able to equip for strategic use, melee attacks and to bring your opponents a special dose of debilitation and humiliation...

Not just for herding livestock anymore. Use the Cattle Prod to get your enemies in line - perfect for running up on opponents in close quarters and freezing them with a high voltage shock before you finish them off with a devastating melee attack. Having a splash effect, this weapon has the ability to hit multiple targets that are bunched up close together in a defensive stance. A bunch of camping bastards waiting around the corner for you? Pop out – zap em – and then calmly unload while they’re frozen in shock.

The Night Stick has been a reliable tool for civil law enforcement going back to Victorian times. In Max Payne 3 Multiplayer, you can equip it to not only issue a good old fashioned melee beatdown when in close combat -  but also to give the unlucky player on the wrong end of the stick a spawn disadvantage – poor vision, low health and stamina. The Night Stick is particularly useful in team games, where a teammate can get an easy kill on a respawned player.  

The stun gun is an ideal weapon for incapacitating your enemy. By temporarily cutting off muscle movement, your adversary will be utterly helpless. Capable of making contact from a short to medium distance range, your target will drop to the floor instantly, giving you the ability to end them with ease. The stun gun is especially useful against players with above-average health, such as Takedown targets in Gang Wars or those using the Big Dog and Unstoppable Bursts. 

Pepper Spray can be a dastardly and beneficial tool. Equip it in one hand with a trusty firearm in the other, and spray it in enemies’ faces to temporarily blind them. Then bring the pain. The Pepper Spray has the same blinding effect as the strongest level of the Hangover burst.
A brand new projectile, the Bouncing Betty is quite the versatile weapon. If you like to snipe, just tactically place a Betty where you think enemies will attempt to sneak attack you and they will be toast. Another helpful strategy is to place them in high traffic movement areas, such as doors and entrances, guaranteeing you some kills. This weapon is also great for Gang Wars during capturing and protecting rounds. The Betty might be smaller than a breadbox but it is capable of some very rewarding destruction.
The Deathmatch Made in Heaven Pack will be available tomorrow for 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE and $9.99 on PC and PSN in North America (this pack will be available for PS3 players in Europe on January 30th). Of course, Rockstar Pass owners will receive this content at no additional charge.

    Arh. I still play mp3 from time to time, and the DLCs have been mostly cool, but what's with adding all this ----equipment. I mean, you added the booby-trap in a FREE DLC! Do you really think it's fair? and do you really think the game would be less fun without it? I just know i'm sick of having to either use military goggles on every single class or not looting people at all, 'cause if I do, i'll get blown up. Also, the calculator - wtf were you thinking? It doesn't ruin gameplay atlest, but giving people high scores when they obviously don't deserve it is bulls**t. And now the bouncing betty... arh. I mean the core-gameplay is still good, but please Rockstar, don't let this s**t happen to GTA5. I have a hope in my hearth that the GTA5 mp will be as good as the RDR-one (best mp i've played), but that won't happen if you keep handing out free kills to people jut for being a douche and picking the OP gear.

          Don't know if this was asked yet but does the Bouncing Betty remain in place after you die?

            @Apex-Predators The stun gun is quite fun, hope you get the chance to give it a go. And it will be coming to PSN to foreign territories as part of Sony Europe's release of the DLC next week, Jan 30th.

          If there was a chance for testing them without having to spend 10(and another 10 and 10 dollars for other dlc's) dollars on them after paying 50 for the original game, sure. Oh, and first day dlc? Straight up ripoff.

          With all that money you better make GTA V a hit, R*! :I

            @Thugnificient Not sure what you mean, the only 'first day DLC' were bonus preorder packs that were eventually released to everyone, and a FREE Gorilla Warfare pack. Everything else was absolutely produced after the original game was released, including this latest Deathmatch Made in Heaven. Thank you.

          As you may have seen, the DLC is now available for download worldwide for PC and on Xbox LIVE - and on PSN for North America. It will be available for PSN in Europe next week Jan 30th. More info here:

                  Thanks for ruining Max Payne 3's multiplayer with overpowered dlc-only weapons and equipment, R*!

                  Appreciate it!

                    @Thugnificient Thanks, but we don't believe any of the new weapons make the multiplayer experience unbalanced. Once you get better adjusted to the new DLC and play more rounds, we think you'll find that the new weapons are a fun addition to the already very large arsenal from which you can choose. Give the new Cattle Prod or Night Stick a whirl.

                    @Thugnificient think man, the stung gun comes to UFE like in real life cops, so why you so mad? It's all ok, but just looking funny in this game. Getting fun always helps eh !

                    @ Message for R*,

                    I have PC Steam version of MP3. The new fix for IMG 5.56 has actually made things bad. Before the patch the IMG had a faster rate of fire but now is has become slower and a lot more difficult to use.
                    Is it possible to revert the IMG back it's state before the patch?
                    I recorded several gameplay of the IMG before the patch and it was a flawless weapon.

                    Best regards

                    Great R*,
                    now it gets more impossible to play a good and fair game with these unfair DLC's. I don't have much money and can't afford the DLC packs. I think, it goes harder and harder for gamers like me, to win without spending money again and again in new DLC weapons,etc. :(
                    I hope GTA 5 never will end like max payne 3. I'm out!

                      I have to say thanks so much Rockstar. You guys make my day today or at least a week:)

                      At first I think there have no chance to see there have a New York Minute co-op since I can't see anything about it in the Multiplayer mode article,so I am disappointed at that moment.And I really want to see that as I played for New York Minute for a very long time in this game.If I can't co-op with other,I sure I will be very upset.

                      Right now,after downloading the DLC Pack,I see inside Arcade Mode there have a Challenge Mode,and see...Oh,my!It New York Minute Co-op!I suddenly become very very happy,totally different than yesterday.

                      Rockstar,like you hiding something don't want to share but can find out by myself.But no problem,you guys did it.The New York Minute Co-op/Co-op mode is the pack I am most excited.

                      Dead Men Walking look like will very fun also,I will try it out soon.But now,time to show some skill in New York Minute Co-op!The,the war will become crazy now.

                      Anyone interested in playing New York Minute Co-op(Mostly here)/Dead Men Walking with me,
                      you can add my Gamertag: chrisli128(XBL)
                      (Of course,I still active in original New York Minute as I have to practice there and make some gameplay there.)

                      Rockstar,I have to say thanks so much,love you guys!

                        @ Ah,maybe I get something wrong,is not Co-op in New York Minute but is having some challenge!Nice also.

                        Dead Men Walking sure will fun too.
