because apparently SWAT is recruited from the mentally handicapped ward?

Stormtrooper Academy of Shooting?

Something like that. It was ridiculous. They were out in the open, the entire street was filled with SWAT guys, and they were never getting hit. Edit: Watched that part again, they ARE getting hit, but it apparently does little to no damage. No idea if that was a dev mode thing or something. What I assumed was their health bars were slooooooooooooooowly counting down from 100 / 150. Like falling by 1 every two seconds slowly.

The narrating dev kept shouting at his buddies to "stay behind the Enforcer (guy with the body armor)!" as if wearing body armor somehow made him this bullet-absorbing black hole that would safeguard everyone else by force of his sheer presence. I guess SWAT in Payday is armed with a Volquartsen .22?

I wouldn't mind it so much if that was a rare occurence, but judging by their video the heist can go bad in a million different ways (they got ganked because a pedestrian saw them sticking up the bank and called the cops), and then it's immediately SWAT-Zerg.
