"...his one true goal in life to be the very best, like no one ever was."
—Overkill Software on the Collectors Pack webpage

Cash Catchem is a heister announced on April 1st as a joke by Overkill. Parodying the fictional character Ash Ketchum from the television show Pokémon, he would fulfill the role of the Pack Rat. He would supposedly be available as part of The Collector Pack.

Leaving his home at the ripe age of ten, Cash Catchem was headed out on adventure and a better life, his one true goal in life to be the very best, like no one ever was. A goal achieved by shoving innocent critters into tiny containers and pitting them against each other.

You know what? If we just leave him alone and let him do his thing, maybe he’ll go away.


Perk DecksEdit

Pack Rat Perk Deck

The Collector needs at least one of the world’s rarest things. Not to sell or display. Just to have. Collectors can carry more of everything, more money, more loot and more ammo, just don’t expect to get it back.

Storable Converted Units FeatureEdit

With the addition of the Capture Cube, you can now capture cops after dominating them. The Capture Cube is a new grenade type, you can throw it at enemies after dominating them, and you will be able to deploy them at any time you want. After the heist is over, they are added to your inventory and are usable on any heist.

  • Capture converted cops
  • Train captured cops
  • VS mode

Tips: Remember that you can only have six captured cops with you to any heist. Also, make sure that you have a diverse line-up. Having only Bulldozers can cause you trouble if you face a challenger who has Cloakers.

  • The Collector Pack was added as part of April Fool's Day 2015 by Overkill. The general theme of the "DLC" parodies the Pokémon franchise and Nintendo.
  • While this was an April Fool's prank, Overkill had added stats to Steam's API with the character Cash Catchem as available to play. They were removed the day after April Fool's.
  • Most of the resources on the announcement page are named with relation to Easter despite being an April Fool's joke.
  • Cash Catchem is the first "heister" to be announced alongside a unique "grenade" type. It was also the first "character pack" to include more than two weapons.
