Saints Row 2 Walkthrough

4. Activities

ACTIVITIES


The Activities are separate side-missions from the main campaign that can be done alone or with a co-op buddy over Xbox Live. There are 15 Activities, however only 12 of them are counted as the main activities required for the 'Crime Lord' and 'Confidence Men' achievements. Racing, Hitman and Chop Shop are not required for the main achievements and can be considered and completed separately from the main 12 activities. There are 17 achievements tied to these, one for completing each of the 15, one for completing all of the main 12, and one for completing all of the main 12 in co-op.

IMPORTANT: The achievement for completing all Activities in co-op; 'Confidence Men', cannot be unlocked if you have completed any level of any Activity alone. It is essential to start a new game and not to touch any of the main 12 Activities in single player. You must only activate them when you are connected and ready with your co-op partner.

Some important points before we systematically complete these activities:

- To ensure this achievement doesn't glitch you must start a brand new campaign, on easy if you like, and complete the first few tutorial missions. DO NOT even go near any of the main 12 Activities without your Co-op partner. If you're alone and still wish to make a start concentrate on the collectibles, the main campaign, unlocking shortcuts etc and getting a good feel for the gameplay until your Co-op buddy is with you.

- It is advisable to complete a good amount of the main campaign missions as possible before starting the Activities. This will not only give you more experience but more importantly it turns all of the neighbourhoods on the map friendly. So instead of being shot at and harassed by other gangs when you're trying to do an Activity, your homies will actually help you out on the street. Also you should activate the Hitman activities asap, as explained below.

- When you complete an Activity you are awarded with various permanent advantages in the game. These range from unlimited ammo to reduced notoriety. For this reason I have arranged the Activities in a specific way so you will unlock the most useful ones first.

There are either 1, 2 or 3 locations and 6 levels of increasing difficulty for each type of main Activity all of which have to be completed. Invite your co-op partner into your friendly world, (as long as you stick together you will both get all the achievements, but do not switch between your world and his, this has been reported to glitch achievements).

When you are ready with your co-op partner simply go to the blue marker of the Activity in question and activate it. Whoever actually activates the Activity will be positioned as the main character, for example in the 'Escort' Activity whoever activates the Activity is always the driver of the car and your co-op partner is in the back pleasuring the client. This does not affect achievements but if you're struggling with an activity you should quit out and swap roles. Swapping is great because when you each know exactly what the other was doing you can help each other much more effectively.

Another important point before we start, remember after every single completed Activity you must both pause the game and manually save. I can't stress how often this game glitches and crashes making you lose all progress.

HITMAN


Reward for all lists complete: Unlimited assault rifle ammo

You can activate and complete the Hitman lists alone on single player without worrying about affecting the Confidence Men achievement. Although the rewards for Snatch are better than Hitman you should activate all Hitman lists as soon as possible because some of your targets will randomly appear around the city while you do other missions or collectibles etc and can be eliminated. Unlimited assault rifle ammo is a very useful advantage so concentrate on the Hitman lists at your earliest convenience.

There are five Hitman locations marked with a silver crosshair icon. When you activate them you will receive a list of six targets, these targets are non-player characters who spawn in specific locations only after you complete a certain action. These actions include dialing a phone number or buying some burgers etc, they will be identified by the clothes they are wearing but also marked on your mini-map with a silver crosshair. You then need to kill them, and unlike Saints Row 1 where you needed a specific weapon you can use any means you like to do this. Once they are killed by you, you will receive an on-screen confirmation and a cash sum. I have listed each target below with tips on how to activate them.

*Please note that on occasion, and at random, when you eliminate a target you can receive a warning that the target was a decoy or that a rival hitman is competing with you, the real target will be found nearby usually fleeing in a vehicle. Hunt them down and kill them, kill the rival too if you like but its not mandatory.

*Also note that any target that you fail to kill, (if they escaped or you died), will respawn again if you return to the area and fulfill the requirements again.

SAINTS ROW DISTRICT

Target: Apoop - He can be found in the Barrio District and is triggered when you enter a night club called 'On Track'. To find this club look for a Liquor store sign on your map marked as a night club, near Sloppy seconds. He may not trigger right away so just walk around a bit on all floors and he'll show up normally on the third floor.

Target: Larry - You are required to buy and wear the 'Mens Tank Top 3' in dirty style from any 'On The Rag', then go to the Trailer Park and walk around. He'll spawn randomly around this area.

Target: Seabaugh - This pirate guy is easy to find and spawns readily on the deck of the actual Pirate Ship docked in the north west of the Hotels and Marina District.

Target: Mr Flegel - He spawns in the Rusty's Needle tattoo parlour in the Red Light District (if he doesn't spawn buy a tattoo, leave the parlour then return).

Target: Lt. Freeball - To spawn this semi-naked cop you have to get at least a three star police notoriety anywhere in Stilwater. The best thing to do is go to a 'Forgive and Forget', call the police, when they arrive kill them, then keep killing cops and keep an eye on your mini-map for a cop without pants on. Quickly concentrate on Freeball and when he's dead run or drive through the Forgive and Forget.

*If you have activated the Barrio District Hitman it is possible that the target 'Anoop' (not Apoop) will appear either with Freeball or in his place, simply kill the one who does show then repeat the process.

Target: Brad - You are required to have sprayed a tag in the Barrio District to spawn him in the Barrio district. If you've ever completed any tag in Barrio he should spawn somewhere near it. To help trigger him you can spray more tags but even if you've completed all tags he will eventually appear.

Target: Anoop - To spawn him you have to get at least a three star police notoriety anywhere in Stilwater. The best thing to do is go to a 'Forgive and Forget', call the police, when they arrive kill them, then keep killing cops and keep an eye on your mini-map for him. Quickly concentrate on Anoop and when he's dead run or drive through the Forgive and Forget.

*If you have activated the Saints Row District Hitman it is possible that the target 'Lt. Freeball' will appear either with him or in his place, simply kill the one who does show then repeat the process.

Target: Frank - Simply dial the number 555-455-8008 on your cell phone near any road in Stilwater and he will show up in a taxi.

The best thing to do is go to a 'Forgive and Forget', call the police, when they arrive kill them, then keep killing cops and keep an eye on your mini-map for him. He should arrive in the first FBI van that appears, concentrate on him and when he's dead run or drive through the Forgive and Forget.

*If you have activated the Saints Row District or Barrio District Hitman it is possible that the target 'Lt. Freeball' and/or 'Anoop' will appear after gaining three stars, simply kill any and all you encounter.

HOTELS AND MARINA

Target: Jeremiah - He can be found anywhere around the Museum District, usually riding a motorcycle.

Target: Nate - You have to play any casino game in the 'Poseidon Palace Casino' in the Hotels and Marina District to spawn this guy. This is the large casino with the blue wave-like structures out front just south of Branded. Simply enter and play Poker on one of the machines (you don't have to win or anything), and he should spawn outside the Casino.

Target: Brian - Dial 911 and ask for an ambulance near any road in Stilwater, he will show up in an ambulance.

Target: Chris - He can be found in or near the Museum Gift Shop in the north of the Museum District, marked as 'Buy Jove' on your map.

Target: Randy - He can be found anywhere near the water in the Marina District. If he doesn't spawn you will have to buy a boat, try stealing one first, if that still doesn't work buy any boat from 'Ship It'.

Target: Nick - He will spawn in a hotel room in the Heron Hotel in the Hotels and Marina District. The Heron Hotel is the tall building just west of the 'Poseidon Casino' (with the blue wave-like structures outside). The entrance is on the side, stand in the blue light near the lift and select use lift, he'll spawn in the room down the corridor.

SNATCH


Reward for Chinatown complete: 3x Health regeneration

Reward for Downtown complete: Unlimited SMG ammo (and the 'GAL 43' SMG added to cribs)

There are two instances of Snatch, one in Chinatown and one in downtown, the object of Snatch is to recruit Ho's (prostitutes) and deliver them back to your brothel. This is not as simple as it sounds because you not only have to contend with their Pimps but in each increasing level you will be infinitely attacked by rival gangs.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op and it is highly recommended that you make as many of the surrounding neighbourhoods friendly by completing the relevant main campaign missions before you start as possible.

Once you have your co-op partner and a good amount of friendly neighbourhoods you should consider using a customised vehicle, any car will do but the unique 'BEAR' and 'Armoured Bulldog' from the main campaign are highly recommended. Customise the vehicle to boost its armour and speed and drive it to the Snatch activity icon on your map. Also consider taking a good SMG with a lot of ammo along to kill the Pimps and rivals more easily.

It doesn't matter who activates the activity you will both begin at the location of the Brothel with the Ho's locations marked on your map and a timer counting down. Hop in your customised vehicles and split up, equip your SMG and head for the nearest Ho. If a Pimp is protecting her blast him in the head from your vehicle and quickly approach the Ho, recruit her with 'D-pad up' and wait for her to enter the vehicle. Unlike in single player you can only pick up one Ho at a time, so speed to the Brothel drop-off point marked on your map and shown by a blue light and drop the Ho's off one by one.

After completing each level you will have to deliver more and more Ho's and the rival gangs will increase in number. To help you succeed make a note of the local 'Forgive and Forget' stations, if you have a high notoriety take the time to swing by and remove it for a time. Also if you lose your custom vehicle and you are struggling quit out of the activity, go get your custom vehicle again and maybe some more ammo then return to the activity, this will not affect the achievement as long as you are still in co-op.

After completing both instances of Snatch to level 6 make sure you and your co-op partner take the time to save your game, you will both unlock the GAL 43, unlimited ammo for any SMG equipped in your crib and the achievement:

...But It Sure Is Fun

ESCORT


Reward for University complete: Reduced Sons Of Samedi notoriety

Reward for Red Light District complete: Stored Vehicle Delivery

Reward for all complete: Custom escort vehicles added to cribs

There are two instances of this activity, one located in the University District and one in the Red Light District. The object is to drive a client around the city while 'pleasuring' them and at the same time avoiding media attention in the form of pursuing News vans.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

Whoever activates the activity will mandatorily be placed as the driver of a vehicle that you have to keep, whilst the other will be charged with the task of pleasuring the client in the rear of the car.

As the driver you will have to drive very fast and avoid the many news vans that will pursue you and try and block you, use sharp turns and driving on the wrong side of the road to avoid them. If they get too close your 'Footage' meter will increase, if this maxes out its game over. Occasionally you will be given a specific task; Driving fast for a certain amount of time, powersliding, achieving near misses and causing damage to other vehicles. These are very simple and must be accomplished as soon as possible, for the damage one just try side-swiping other cars until you fill the criteria. You will also sometimes be tasked with driving to a specific place, usually a building, go there immediately and avoid any news vans. Sometimes you will be pursued by a private investigator or another enemy, kill them by running them over or less preferably with your SMG.

As the pleasurer you have to fill the pleasure meter using the thumbsticks, much like the ho'ing diversion. You can also shoot the pursuing news vans to get rid of them temporarily, this is not recommended however because killing them will decrease the pleasure meter. As the pleasurer you can shoot the private investigators and other enemies though, that's good. Once the pleasure bar is maxed you have won.

If you are struggling in later levels I advise you to switch roles with your co-op partner, you will gain a clearer idea of each others exact tasks and better improve your chances. Remember that if a news van is too close then the pleasurer is unable to increase the pleasure meter, get away from the news vans to allow him to work.

Once both instances are completed to level 6 remember to save. You will unlock the ability to request any vehicle from your crib garages to be delivered to your current location from your cell phone, this is a very advantageous ability for the next activity; 'Drug Trafficking'. You will also unlock reduced 'Sons of Samedi' notoriety, some custom vehicles for your crib, and the achievement:

Trickster

DRUG TRAFFICKING


Reward for Airport complete: Unlimited shotgun ammo (and 'Ultimax' semi-automatic shotgun added to cribs)

Reward for Hotels and Marina complete: Reduced Ronin notoriety

There are two instances of the 'Drug Trafficking' activity, one is found in the Airport District in the south and one in the Hotels and Marina district in the north. The object of this activity is help a drug dealer make a certain amount drug deals with clients around the city while dealing with gangs and cops trying to kill him.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op and it is highly recommended that you make as many of the surrounding neighbourhoods as possible friendly by completing the relevant main campaign missions before you start.

Whoever activates this activity will be placed automatically, albeit optionally, as the driver of the drug dealer's vehicle, and the other will simply be a passenger charged with protecting the drug dealer, you can swap places and vehicles at any time. The dealer's vehicle is very poor and will almost certainly be destroyed quite early forcing you to run around grabbing random vehicles. This can be countered if you have completed the above activity 'Escort' which allows you to call in the delivery of a stored vehicle from your garage on your cell phone. Much like Snatch, having a customised vehicle with armour and speed boost like the 'BEAR' or 'Bulldog' will significantly increase your chances of success here. Simply activate the activity then pause the game and call in your stored vehicle, wait a moment and hop in.

Other advantages include weapons, you should have unlimited ammo for your GAL 43 after completing Snatch so equip it and use it on the drivers of the gang vehicles chasing you down. Also if you see a 'Forgive and Forget' near your way it can be a great help to use it.

After completing both instances to level 6 remember to save and you will unlock the 'Ultimax' shotgun, unlimited shotgun ammo for any shotgun equipped at your crib, and the achievement:

Purple Haze

INSURANCE FRAUD


Reward for Factories complete: Unlimited Sprint

Reward for Museum complete: Reduced vehicle damage

There are two instances of the 'Insurance Fraud' activity, one is found in the Factories district in the south and one in the Museum district in the north. The object of this activity is use the left and right triggers to throw yourself into traffic in order to build up a cash meter and collect a set amount of cash which increases with each level.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

The Activity is marked as a blue icon with a pair of crutches on it on your map, it doesn't matter who activates it. At the start you'll be given a random area of the map to complete the activity in and within that area a special smaller circular area with increased adrenaline, the timer will not begin until you reach that area. Now because many of the areas have hardly any traffic one of you should to go to the designated area while the other goes to the nearest freeway (motorway) with multiple lanes of traffic. Once you reach the designated area a timer will begin and you should both go to an area of high traffic such as most freeways and particularly the eastern most major bridge in Stilwater.

The first few levels are easy enough but later they can become very challenging if you don't get enough traffic or don't build enough points early. When the timer starts you want to position yourself at the side of the freeway, so the traffic doesn't slow as it approaches you, wait for the bigger juggernauts and particularly service vehicles, like cop cars and ambulances as they will give you a bonus, then run out in front of them and use LT or RT to activate a kind of ragdoll effect and generate cash. Note that if you get hit without pressing either trigger first you will not get any money and waste precious time. The trick in gaining larger and larger amounts of cash is waiting for the adrenaline mode to kick in and using the left thumbstick to guide your character through the air and hit subsequent vehicles. The more unique vehicles you hit in one go the more your cash doubles and triples. A great technique is to hit one vehicle on one side of the road then guide yourself into an oncoming vehicle on the other side then repeat as much as possible. Alternatively just keep trying to hit the front of the vehicle, or the back wheels of a semi, over and over to build massive cash.

After the completion of each level whoever is closest to the next designated area should go there and activate it then return to an area of high traffic.

After completing both instances to level 6 remember to save and you will unlock unlimited sprint, reduced vehicle damage, and the achievement:

FUZZ


Reward for Projects complete: Unlimited pistol ammo (and the 'Kobra' pistol added to cribs)

Reward for Suburbs complete: Reduced police notoriety

There are two instances of the 'FUZZ' activity, one is found near in the Projects district in the south and one in the Suburbs district in the north. The object of this activity is to kill specific targets and allow an AI cameraman to film it.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op and it is highly recommended that you make as many of the surrounding neighbourhoods as possible friendly, by completing the relevant main campaign missions before you start.

The activity is marked with a blue icon with a pair of police sirens on it on your map, go there and activate it. It doesn't really matter who activates it but the one who does has the cameraman following them. This is one of the easiest activities but to make it even easier you can use a special vehicle from your crib with a mounted gun on the top.

Once the activity starts get in the vehicle and look after your cameraman as he can die and if he does its mission over. Drive to the marked targets and listen carefully for the specific weapon the cameraman wants you to use, it should also tell you on screen briefly. Using this weapon will increase the cameraman footage meter much quicker but it isn't essential, you can kill every target with the mounted gun also if you wish.

After completing both instances to level 6 remember to save and you will unlock the 'Kobra' pistol, unlimited pistol ammo for any pistol equipped at your crib, and the achievement:

TRAIL BLAZING


Reward for Downtown complete: Reduced damage from explosions

Reward for Apartments complete: Reduced Brotherhood notoriety

Reward for all complete: Fireproof suit

There are two instances of the 'Trail Blazing' activity, one is found in the Apartments in the south and one in the Downtown District in the north. The object of this activity is race through checkpoints to a finish line using a Quad bike while also gaining extra time by up blowing vehicles, property and pedestrians.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op and it is highly recommended that you make as many of the surrounding neighbourhoods as possible friendly, by completing the relevant main campaign missions before you start.

The activity is marked by a blue icon with a flame symbol on it on your map, go there, the person who activates it will be the driver of the Quad and the other will be on the rear throwing Molotov Cocktails (petrol-bombs) at people to gain extra seconds on the clock.

The Quad bike can be a little tricky to use but remember to just drive cautiously and that the bike and you and your co-op partner are indestructible. You can even smash through large vehicles for extra time but this slows you down a little. It's best to just drive nice and easy while your partner burns things around you. If you ever actually fail any levels of this activity it should only be due to a glitch or if you get stuck or go the wrong way a lot, so just try again. If you are really struggling you should swap drivers.

After completing both instances to level 6 remember to save and you will unlock reduced damage from explosions, reduced Brotherhood notoriety, the most useful unique fireproof Firemans suit, and the achievement:

HELI-ASSAULT


Reward for Barrio complete: Reduced damage from bullets

Reward for Trailer Park complete: Weapon store discount

There are two instances of the 'Heli-Assault' activity one is found in the Barrio District in the south and one in the Trailer Park District in the north. The object of this activity is to an attack helicopter to cover your AI Homie as he drives around the city making deals.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

The activity is marked by a blue icon with a white helicopter symbol in it on your map. Whoever activates it will be the pilot and the other will be the co-pilot who controls all the weapons. At the start you will both spawn in the helo and receive a green target on your map, this is your Homie who is slow, vulnerable (including to friendly fire) and who often gets lost and circles the same roads. He will be attacked by ever increasing gang vehicles or cop vehicles and later other helicopters will attack you.

Go to your Homies location and he should start moving, he has to drive to certain locations where he parks for a while and makes a deal, then he goes to the next location. The amount of deals he has to complete increases with each level of the activity.

As the pilot you need to keep a clear line of sight with your Homie so your co-pilot can protect him. Remember that your co-pilot will need time to lock onto enemy vehicles, usually around 3-5 seconds but more when line-of-sight gets broken by bridges etc. Try to fly reasonably low so your co-pilots rockets have less time to lock-on and reach the targets. Also in later levels keep a very keen lookout for the enemy attack helicopters, they are devastating! Although it can take up to four rockets from them to down you it often only takes one hit to smash you into a nearby building. The enemy helicopters will approach from pre-designated spawn areas at certain points so try to remember where and when they come from if you fail any level. Also to spot them early look for a red target that is shown as above you, most of the time they above you and that's how you can distinguish them from ground vehicles. As the pilot keep moving when dealing with enemy helicopters and appreciate the fact that your co-pilot needs to be above or level with the enemy helo to lock on to it.

As the co-pilot you will have rockets and a minigun at your disposal. The minigun is very difficult to aim but it is powerful, only use it when you think it will definitely hit and when your rocket lock-on is recharging. Your rockets are your main weapon and they are very easy to use and devastating to your enemies, one rocket will destroy any vehicle of any type. Your pilot has to contend with buildings and other obstructions so use your mini-map to spot enemy vehicles early and hover the target over them for a few seconds to lock-on (it turns red), try to imagine the path the rocket has to take to hit the enemy and avoid shooting when obstructions would get in the way. Whenever you spot enemy helicopters on your map or in the sky make them your top priority, your pilot should be ascending to get above them as you can't target enemies above you.

If you are struggling you should try swapping roles, this is very advantageous as you both get to know the exact capabilities of the helicopter and its weapons. Remember where attack helicopters or multiple ground enemies came from if you fail and be sure to take care of them early next time.

After completing both instances to level 6 remember to save and you will unlock the 15% reduced damage from bullets, a weapon store discount, and the achievement:

SEPTIC AVENGER


Reward for Suburbs complete: Improved weapon accuracy

Reward for Red Light District complete: Food and liquor store discount

Reward for all complete: Custom Septic Truck added to cribs

There are two instances of Septic Avenger, one in the Red Light District in the south and one in the Suburbs Expansion District in the North west, the object of this activity is to accumulate an increasingly higher amount of insurance cash by spraying buildings, vehicles and people with sewage from the mounted cannon of a Stilwater Municipal Septic Truck.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

Once you have your co-op partner go to the blue icon with a little truck symbol in it on your map. Whoever activates it will be the driver of the truck who is charged with spraying the mounted sewage cannon and stopping the truck to allow more time to spray, the passenger also uses the sewage cannon but can't stop the truck.

The truck will drive on its own around a set route through pre-designated parts of the city, you and your partner need to accumulate enough cash to hit the target amount shown in the corner of your screen before the route is finished. However you are also timed so stopping the truck too long and trying to spray everything in sight will result in a fail in later levels. Spray at the major buildings until their red bar is depleted, and look out for the bonuses which are usually specific types of vehicles, if you see them slow down and spray all in the area. You will also attract the cops at later levels, don't worry your tanker is invincible and you are highly unlikely to be shot at in the front, spraying the cop cars until they are disabled will net you an extra $1,000 per car and get them off your back for a while, but concentrate mainly on the larger buildings.

After completing both instances of Septic Avenger to level 6 make sure you and your co-op partner take the time to save your game, you will both unlock improved weapon accuracy for all weapons, a 15% food and liquor store discount, custom Septic Trucks added to your crib and the achievement:

FIGHT CLUB


Reward for Arena complete: Increased melee combat damage

Reward for Prison complete: Homies; Troy and Legal Lee

There are two instances of Fight Club, one in the Prison District and one in the Ultor Dome of the Arena District. The object of this activity is to win hand-to-hand and melee combat fights in an enclosed area.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op. I'd also recommend you complete all main missions of the Sons Of Samedi storyline to unlock the Samedi fighting style first, go to the plastic surgeon to equip it. Also stock up on food to replenish your health during the fights.

Once you have your co-op partner and you're ready go to the blue icon with a fist symbol in it on your map. It doesn't matter who activates it as you both spawn inside a small area with no weapons.

Stay on the outside of the area to avoid getting surrounded, use your Samedi high kick to weaken the enemies then when you see the 'Y' symbol hit it and follow the prompts to put them down permanently. Help your partner whenever he gets overwhelmed and use some of the melee weapons as they can be handy. Also look out for any food that the spectators throw in and when you get low on health run to a corner and recharge. This activity is one of the easiest but if you're struggling try leaving the activity and buying some more food then returning.

After completing both instances of Fight Club to level 6 make sure you and your co-op partner take the time to save your game, you will both unlock increased melee combat damage, the ability to call Troy and Legal Lee as back-up homies and the achievement:

CHOP SHOP


Reward for one list complete: Vehicle customization discount and 'Mongoose' custom buggy added to cribs

Reward for two lists complete: 'Kent' custom combine harvester added to cribs

Reward for all lists complete: Mechanic discount

There are five instances of Chop Shop, one in the Apartments District, one in the Suburbs District, one in the Factories District, one in the Truckyard District and one in the Downtown District. The object of this activity is to locate specific types of vehicles around Stilwater in free roam and deliver them back to any activated Chop Shop location. This activity can be started at any time and does not count towards the Co-op 'Confidence Men' achievement so activate them at any time at your discretion.

The Chop Shops are marked on your map as blue icons with two tools in an 'X' formation inside it. Once activated you will receive a list of eight specific types of vehicles that you can then access via your Activites menu, you can also choose one of these vehicles to be displayed on your HUD and when one is nearby it will be marked on your mini-map as a little yellow car making it much easier to locate.

You are not timed for these vehicles and you do not need to activate them on your HUD to steal and deliver them, you can simply drive around and if you spot a wanted vehicle, steal it and you'll be automatically given a GPS route to your nearest Chop Shop. You will receive a set sum of cash per vehicle and you can deliver the same vehicle repeatedly but you will not gain Respect and only $500 each subsequent time. Be sure to save after the successful delivery of each vehicle.

Most vehicles are common and can be found in any part of Stilwater, some are more common in certain areas like the Backhoe will mostly be found on freeways and in the Docks & Warehouses District. The Ambulance, Five-O and Taxi can simply be called for on your cell phone. Some vehicles however are only located in very specific areas, the list below should help you with these:

Bag Boy: Found only in the Airport

Peacekeeper: You must gain a 3 star wanted level and steal it, try causing trouble near a Forgive and Forget

Delivery Truck: Found driving around the Saints Row District

Quota: Often found patrolling the High End Retail District

Also you can easily find the following vehicles if you change your Gang Customisation at your Crib, your Homies will then drive around in them and hand them over without fuss:

Betsy, Compton, Go! and the Voyage: Default Gang Style

Magma and the Mockingbird: First Gang Style unlocked after conquering 7 hoods

Hammerhead and Venom Classic: Second Gang Style unlocked after conquering 21 hoods

Attrazione, Bezier, Bulldog, Justice and Superiore: Third Gang Style unlocked after conquering 30 hoods

If you're still struggling to locate a specific vehicle try this handy tip: Go to the suggested District for the vehicle, mark the vehicle on your HUD, enter a store, buy any item, then leave the store. Nine times out of ten the vehicle will appear nearby marked on your mini-map.

When all vehicles are delivered you will receive a Mechanic and Vehicle Customisation discount, the Mongoose custom Buggy, the Kent custom Combine Harvester added to your crib and the achievement:

Where's My Car?

CROWD CONTROL


Reward for Marina complete: Pepper Spray and Chainsaw added to cribs

Reward for The Suburbs complete: Clothing store discount

There are two instances of Crowd Control, one in the Hotels & Marina District and one in the Suburbs District, the object of this activity is to protect a VIP on foot with baseball bats from violent fans wielding bats and other weapons.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

Once you have your co-op partner go to the blue icon with a star symbol in it on your map. It doesn't matter who activates this activity, you will both spawn near to where the VIP enters the area. The VIP will walk a set route around the area then return to an exit vehicle. You and your Co-op partner must protect the VIP from fans while also earning enough cash to complete the activity before the VIP exits.

In the early stages this activity is very straight forward, simply grab the fans who run at the VIP with left bumper (they are also marked on your mini-map as red blips) before they annoy the VIP too much and fill the red annoyance bar. You can simply throw them away anywhere to get rid of them and gain a small amount of cash, but to gain much more bonus cash and complete the later levels you will have to use the special environment features such as the; Helicopter blade, metal detector, oncoming train, lumber jacks, garbage truck, jet engine, conveyor belt, bodyguards, tractor scoop, open grave, Chinese gong, Chinese fireworks, treadmill and trampoline. Using any of these will not only be a humorous way to get rid of the annoying fans but will also net you much larger cash bonuses. In the later levels you will encounter an unending swarm of fans, some with bats and even guns. To ensure victory in these levels the method is simple; one of you should constantly bat the fans directly off the VIP, don't worry about hitting the VIP he is immune, just keep swinging away right next to him, and the other should be grabbing as many fans as possible and throwing them into the environment bonuses. If you're struggling try swapping roles.

After completing both instances of Crowd Control to level 6 make sure you and your co-op partner take the time to save your game, you will both unlock improved weapon accuracy for all weapons, a 15% Clothing store discount, pepper spray and chainsaw added to your crib and the achievement:

RACING


Reward for various types of races complete: Customized unique versions of specific vehicles added to cribs

There are twenty seven Races to be found throughout Stilwater, ten with cars, five with bikes, two with planes, seven with boats and three with helicopters. You do not need to win these races, you only have to achieve a Bronze medal which is attained by either finishing in third position or beating the bronze time in the time trial races.

This activity can be started at any time and does not count towards the Co-op 'Confidence Men' achievement so activate them at any time at your discretion. You can use your own customized car or bike for those races if you wish but you'll be given the same vehicle as the AI so coming third in these races is a doddle. The races are marked by a blue icon with a chequered flag symbol in it on your map. Simply go to the blue marker and activate the race, if you want to use a custom vehicle you must be sitting in it when you activate the race.

Scroll down to the Saints Row 2 section of this page: http://saintsrow.wikia.com/wiki/Racing to find all the locations, types, and other useful information regarding the Races. Remember to save after completing each race, the game loves to freeze during races.

After completing all twenty seven races make sure you take the time to save your game again, and you will unlock a Race Bezier, a Saints Sabretooth, a Saints Wolverine, a Saints Skipper, a Saints Oppressor added to your crib and the achievement:

MAYHEM


Reward for Nuclear Island complete: Flamethrower and 'Annhilator' custom helicopter added to cribs

Reward for Red Light District complete: Crib customization discount

There are two instances of Mayhem, one in the Prison District and one in the Red Light District, the object of this activity is to accumulate cash by destroying property such as buildings and vehicles with various vehicles and/or weapons.

Although this activity can be started at any time it must be attempted only in co-op.

You may want to consider using a vehicle from your crib with a mounted gun on top, the Bulldog and ideally if you have the Ultor Exposed DLC pack the EDF Scout are best. Once you're ready with your Co-op partner go to the blue icon with an explosion symbol in it on your map. It doesn't matter who activates the activity, both of you will spawn in a pre-designated area with a timer counting down. You will be given certain weapons with infinite ammo such as grenades and RPG's to destroy as many destructible objects as you can. You will also be given a specific bonus area and a specific bonus object such as a certain type of vehicle or piece of property that will award you with extra cash. To help you hit your cash target you will be able to activate Combo's, this is done by destroying a lot of things in quick succession.

It's pretty easy in the first levels but as you progress you will be given a much greater target of cash to achieve. To help you hit that target work with your Co-op partner to keep Combo's going, if you stop destroying things it will drop and so will your cash per item. Use a vehicle to crash through fences, posts, furniture etc, little things like that should be your main focus, they might not seem very valuable but they rack up major Combo bonuses. As the driver plow through long lines of fencing and as the Co-op partner you should be shooting elsewhere to increase Combo's. If you're still struggling with levels 5 and 6 try using the satchel charges and timing them for big Combo's.

After completing both instances of Mayhem to level 6 make sure you and your co-op partner take the time to save your game, you will both unlock a 15% Crib Customization discount, the Flamethrower, the Annihilator Helicopter added to your crib and the achievement:

Once you have your Co-op partner go to the blue icon with a little Demo Derby car symbol in it on your map. It doesn't matter who activates this activity, you will both be taken to a screen where you are given a choice of four Demo Derby vehicles to use in the arena. Each vehicle has its own strengths and weaknesses but concentrating on Offense is the key here. Simply work with your Co-op partner to whittle down the health bar of the opponent's vehicles, then use the left click button to nitrous into them and total them.
