.pac files are containers which typically hold PACH or SDHC files, which in turn contain various game files such as YOBJ files or textures.

In WWE 2K17 and beyond they are being replaced by HSPC files. The main difference between HSPC and PAC files are that the sub files inside of HSPC files are named using string hashes that have no legible naming pattern.

When doing Character Modding it is recommended to use the older PAC format as it allows much more flexibility with the use of files.

.pac files are required to be installed or modified while the game isn't running, for they are only loaded on game startup.
