4. Saints Row IV (AU) Challenges

On this section of the walkthrough, you will find advice on how to complete the challenges. There is no mention about the silver medal parts of the challenges as obtaining gold automatically gets you the silver. If you are struggling getting the gold medals, simply reduce your game difficulty.

Credit goes to I Solus I for this following list:

Complete All Other Challenges
Earned when completing all of the challenges.

Blazin’ Gold Medals
The gold medal time is 15 seconds for each course. Reaching a checkpoint stops the clock, and be sure to avoid fire as it reduces time by 2 seconds.

Genki’s M.O.M. Gold Medals
Be as quick as possible moving from location to location.

Insurance Fraud Gold Medals
Jump high and rag doll yourself. Hitting cars will multiply your score. Saran447 says that if you fast sprint towards a car and press cn_RT or cn_LT just before you hit the car, it can fling you into the air. Especially useful because even if the car is stationery, it will still throw you into the air.

On-Foot Mayhem Gold Medals
The best strategy for these activities, if you are having trouble, is once you reach level 26, unlock the Super Sprint 'Tornado' upgrade. Then instead of using the weapons or TK/Stomp powers, just super sprint around running into cars, people, everything. For the TK Mayhem, be sure to grab the giant orb as well. Thanks to Cornflopper for this tip.

Super-Powered Fight Club Gold Medals
Best done after upgrading all powers to max or at least near max. This was the most difficult activity for me. Freeze and stomp were the most effective. Only go after the boss in the final round as he is the only one you have to defeat. Another way suggested by SiebeTolsma is to just sprint from enemy to enemy, and using the beatdown to quickly take them down. Another strategy by Perfidious Sinn is to use the Shrink (Stomp) element. If you shrink any enemy, even a boss, and then melee them it kills them instantly.

Vehicular Mayhem Gold Medals
Blow things up with the given vehicle.

Platforming Rift Gold Medals
Upgrade your super jump. Better to take your time rather than speeding through. Falling off will reduce the score bonus at the end of each segment.

Speed Rift Gold Medals
Use the boost as much as possible. While boosting, hitting barriers increases score.

TK Rift Gold Medals
Upgrade Telekinesis throw cost and recharge. Keep your combo high to get the maximum score from each hit. Also, it helps to have the ability to not rag doll from explosions.

10 Aliens Super-Kicked
Click cn_RS while unarmed to super-kick.

100 Death From Above Kills
Unlocked late in the game by completing the "The Very Next Day" main quest. If you are having trouble getting kills, you can use freeze blast on the enemies before bombing them. Leave some Flashpoints or Virus Injections unplayed until this is unlocked. Start a Flashpoint or Virus Injection and get some kills then right before you are about to complete it, run away. The quest will cancel and you can restart it. Another method by InfernalDante34 is to start the Medium difficulty Super Power Fight Club (the one with Julius). The third round is a "King of the Hill" round, and the enemies will continue to spawn (two on the map at a time). Also, it takes TWO hits with Death from Above from any height to kill them, so it is quicker to do small jumps and hit the enemies with it quickly. You MUST finish the Fight Club for the kills to count though, if you let the timer run out none of your kills will count.

25 Miles Super Sprinted
You'll get it over time. The Unlimited Sprint upgrade is unlocked by completing Keith David's side quest "Executive Orders".

10 Superpowered Beatdowns
While unarmed, hold down cn_LB and use cn_LT or cn_RT on an enemy to perform a melee attack. Credit to fuzzyjw510.

1800 Seconds of Super Jump Air Time
You'll get this over time.

5 Telekinetic Catches
To unlock the Telekinesis Catch element, you need to earn all Silver Medals in the Genki's M.O.M. activities. When attacking a Warden, wait for him to pick up an object and when he throws it, press cn_RB and if you snatch it out of the air then it will count. The red balls do not count towards this challenge. If you are struggling with this, get your notoriety up, and kite the Warden to a built up area where he can hopefully grab some cars.

30 Telekinesis Kills
Telekinesis someone and throw them at a nearby wall. They must die from the impact. This is easier to accomplish when upgraded. Telekinesis is unlocked by completing the "Ghost in the Machine" main quest.

Throw 100 Enemies With Telekinesis
Don't have to kill them, just throw them.

10 Vehicles Super-Kicked
Press cn_RS while unarmed and standing next to a vehicle.

10 Arc Lightning Hits

10 Enemies Mind Controlled
Use the blast mind control element on enemies. You don't have to kill them. The blast element mind control is unlocked by completing Matt Miller's side quest "The Prestige".

10 Fire Element Ignitions

10 Gravity Float Kills

75 Ground Stomp Stuns

50 Aliens Taunted
Walk up to and enemy and hold cn_left. Wookiee Hairem suggested doing them at flashpoints because you can get 4-5 each time you taunt. Samphaa said that if you need taunts, but have finished all the hotspots, replay the fight club in Loren Square. Get to the 2nd round and just keep jumping in one spot, when you have about 10 enemies below you, freeze them, then land and taunt them.

Post-game, grab a Void (the alien jet) and fly from end to end of the city. When the jet reaches the edge of the map it will turn around and enter hover mode. Hit cn_B to switch it back to flight mode.
