Payday 3 is finally here but some players are encountering issues with logging in, getting stuck on the login screen.
This guide will walk you through a workaround to bypass the login screen and dive straight into the action-packed world of Payday 3.
How to Bypass the Login Screen in Payday 3
Linking Your Steam Account
If you find yourself unable to log in, the solution is to link your Steam account with your Starbreeze Payday 3 account. This method allows you to skip the in-game login screen entirely. To do this, you need to navigate to the Starbreeze profile page.
You can find the link to this page in the game’s create account section or use a browser to go to Starbreeze Profile Page.
Creating and Logging into Starbreeze Account
Once on the Starbreeze profile page, you need to log in with your Starbreeze account. If you don’t have one, create an account and log in.
After logging in, you will see an option to link to Steam. Click on “Link to Steam” and follow the prompts to sign in with your Steam account and link them.
Starting the Game Post Linking
After successfully linking your accounts, when you start up the game with the linked Steam account, you should be directly taken to the main menu, bypassing the login screen.
If the login screen still appears, it might be due to the servers being under stress, especially during the open beta phase where the game is experiencing a high influx of players.
Bypassing the login screen in Payday 3 open beta can be a quick fix for those who are eager to experience the game without the hassle of login issues. By linking your Steam and Starbreeze accounts, you can seamlessly enter the game and start enjoying the thrilling heists and high-stakes action that Payday 3 has to offer.
