Israeli Defense Forces
The Payday Gang
|Melee||Two Handed Great Ruler|
|Also known as||Hila Klein|
|Portrayed by||Hila Klein|
|Voiced by||Hila Klein|
|Room||Ethan and Hila's Video Corner|
This couple seemingly came out of nowhere. No criminal background to speak of, no prior issues of note. Internet personalities known by the general public for their “streams” and “podcasts”, occasionally defending those they deem unfairly judged. As to what skills they possess that would entice an organization such as Crime.net to employ them, we can only speculate at present, taking into account that it may draw public scrutiny.
Hila reportedly has military experience, but to what extent it will be useful to the Payday gang is unknown, even after many weeks of surveillance. There could however be some motive in reasons pertaining to their assumed skill at media manipulation. Why an outfit like the Payday gang would even seem appealing to join from the couple’s perspective, also remains a mystery.
Hila is the 21st playable character in PAYDAY 2. She was released alongside her husband Ethan on October 25, 2017 as part of the h3h3 Character Pack.
Rumor has it that Hila underwent extreme training in the Israeli military, and while she keeps denying it publicly, something definitely caught Bain's attention when he asked her and Ethan to join the gang.
- Hila (and Ethan) are the first and so far only heister to share a DLC, character room and weapons with another. The couple is also the first to have known relatives appear in the game in person instead of being mere names.
- Hila has a much more aggressive personality in the game than in her YouTube videos. The real Hila is notably shy and soft spoken, and is awkward in front of cameras.
- The real life Hila Klein was also in the Israeli Defense Forces; however, she only worked a desk job.
- Ethan and Hila have uploaded a playtesting video of themselves.
