Saints Row 2 Walkthrough

6. Miscellaneous

Ok this page is going to help you get all achievements which are not story related or a collectable.

The first achievement is the most annoying due to the difficulty a couple of the activities have. For this achievement you need to complete all 10 levels of Taxi, Fire Truck, and Tow Truck. To start the activity just go into the vehicle and press Y when it tells you to.

The Taxi driving activity is probably the easiest. You get times to take passengers from point A to point B. Some passengers want you to drive fast and recklessly and others want you to drive slow and carefully. If you do not meet the requirements of the passenger they will just leave the taxi. However even though your time runs out you still have not failed as then the fare money you will receive will start to decrease so it gives you a little extra time, but this one is easy.

The Fire Truck activity can be frustrating but it is doable, it took me a few attempts to complete all 10 levels due to a few things. To start off, what you do in the activity is drive a fire truck to the marked location, go into the building and put out the fire with a fire extinguisher. This activity is all about speed, you need to do it fast as time is short and fires can spread. When traveling between locations make sure your siren is on to get rid of traffic, and when in buildings, watch out for people on fire as they run around like crazy and they can kill you by doing this (this has happened to me on level 9 before.) It might take a few attempts, but just practice and try to find a level area of the map so you do not need to worry about travelling uphill.

The Tow Truck is the hardest, and near impossible without a co-op partner. What you do in the activity is drive up to a vehicle and repossess it, just like in one of the first missions. Sounds simple, but after the first couple of levels you start taking vehicles which belong to gangs and the police, so you get people chasing you and trying to blow up your vehicle, and you can't repair throughout the activity. This is where your co-op partner comes in. As you start the level, get your co-op partner to start a race which cancels out all wanted levels, so you are free to kill the people protecting the vehicle and don't have to worry about people chasing you and trying to kill you.
