6. Saints Row IV (AU) How the Saints Save Christmas

Welcome to the second DLC for Saints Row, How the Saints Save Christmas. Unlike the first DLC, this one has slightly more substance to it, but don't expect it to take more than a few hours to complete. It has a few new activities and some collectibles that appear throughout several quests. That said it is extremely amusing and you should prepare yourself for more wacky, insane and surreal moments with the Saints Row crew.

Let's get started! After you download the DLC, you will be prompted to start the quest Miracle on 3rd Street. In this first quest, there are four Text Adventures and five Letters to Santa to collect. Keep an eye out for them as they're not difficult to spot. Also, there are two achievements obtained in this quest.

Head back to the ship and make your way to the waypoint to begin this quest. After watching the cut scene and learning about Clawz, you start the quest and you will immediately see a letter on the mini map. Both these and the text adventures are clearly displayed when you get close to them. However, you won't be able to get all of them initially. Go ahead and pick up the first letter here.

Make your way to the store and steal the gun. Now prepare to be attacked by Clawz. Take out the gingerbread men, and then shoot Clawz. Eventually, you will be required to revive Santa. Next, head to the park and in the center of the park is a barren tree with a glowing present underneath. Pick this up to unlock:

Our Gift to You

You will be prompted to sound bells. Simply shoot them with your gun and make sure you don't hold cn_Y as there are reports it can glitch the achievement linked to ringing them all. As you hit each bell with your gun, you will retrieve your powers. After the second or third bell, you will have your super jump ability so head back to where you got your gun to find a text adventure on the roof. Once you clear the sixth bell, you will unlock:

...A Saint Gets a Gun

Ring all the bells in town in 'Miracle on 3rd Street'.

Head to the waypoint. Take out the gingerbread guards and crack the ice with stomp. Pick up the projector (there is a text adventure here, also a letter is nearby) and head to the theater. You will find the third text adventure and a letter on the roof here.

Now protect CID, simply kill the gingerbread guards and as you follow the objectives you will find the remaining text adventure and two letters.

Attack Clawz and you will find the quest.

So it's time for the second quest, The Fight Before Christmas. This quest contains two text adventures and three letters to Santa. There are two achievements linked to this quest, one of which involves you to listen to six different snowmen in varying locations. I make mention of the quotes from the snowmen though they may vary, but you only need to listen to them once for the achievement.

Head towards the waypoint and you will enter the town. As you get to the entrance, turn right 140 degrees and super jump up. You should see a small fire in the distance with your first snowman and he will say "we plundered and pruned the hedges". Make your way back to the town entrance and jump on the second building to the right. Head East and you will come across your first letter here.

Now look to the edge of the building to find a snowman looking over the edge, he will say "don't f*#%ing test me man"

Facing East, jump and look for a long stable. Head into the building and on the second floor you will find the first text adventure.

Go back to the suicidal snowman and face north. Jump high and glide over two buildings. Upon falling into a garden with three drunk snowmen, you'll hear "that's what happens to a f*%#ing rat".

Face south, walk out of the garden, turn right and look for a lollipop on the left leading to an alleyway with a weightlifting snowman who will say "don't forget leg day".

Now make your way to the waypoint and defeat the gingerbread in the courtyard. Don't go through to the workshop yet, but instead turn right 90 degrees and super jump. You will need to jump over two buildings and then you will see a large house. On the east side of this house is a two headed snowman who will say "Santa did not love us. But Clawz' does".

Go back to the town entrance and face north. Now turn left and head towards a long stable. Follow the building to the end, turn right, walk north and then jump up on to a small ledge. You should see a building in front of you so follow this around. Behind this building is a centipede snowman which will say "f*%k me"

If you listened to all the snowmen, you will unlock:

Get that Kid to a Psychologist

Find all the snowmen vignettes in the North Pole.

Head to the workshop. Start mashing cn_Y and once you have licked the candy cane clean (this takes a while) you unlock:

Lick the candy cane barricade all the way through in 'The Fight Before Christmas'.

Now go to the stables and disable the four reindeer, one of the text adventures are in one of the stables on the second floor. Once the reindeer are disabled, chase down Twinkle and defeat him and his minions. Head into the building and inside on the left is a letter to Santa. Pick up the present and disguise yourself and then follow the waypoints.

Once inside the workshop, turn around and pick up the second text adventure. Next, fight your way through the enemies and then into Santa's office where you will find the final letter in this quest. Pick up the Christmas gun and attack Clawz with it. Finally, clear out the remaining enemies and leave the workshop. Make your way to the sleigh to finish the quest.

We are now onto the third and final quest, The Santa Clawz. By the end of this quest, you should unlock three achievements. In addition, there are two text adventures and two letters to find although one of each are automatically given to you at the end of the quest.

With that said, select The Santa Clawz and head back to the ship. After watching the cut scene you will be flying Santa's sleigh. Open the map and set a waypoint for the star shaped island. Here you want to fire a present into the statue of Zinyak's open hand to unlock:

He's Still on the Naughty List

Deliver a present to Zinyak in 'The Santa Clawz'.

Now fly around and clear the targets. After clearing the final targets make your way to confront Clawz. Watch a cutscene and you will find yourself on the floor. The first letter is located diagonally to the right of you so walk forward to find it in front of a building.

You are now required to light some symbols so use your fire Blast ability to accomplish this. Once you light the two candles, head to the next waypoint (Test of Strength), turn right 90 degrees and north of this, on top of a sky scraper, is the first text adventure to collect.

Complete the Test of Strength using Stomp and make your way to the shield. Just keep blasting at it until Kinzie turns up and then use Telekinesis to pick up the presents and deliver them to people causing the shield to drop. Now you have to wait a few seconds and then presents will drop. Pick these up and throw them at Clawz. After delivering Shaudi's present, you will unlock:

Dear Santa

Find all the letters to Santa in the holiday missions.

You will now watch the end cut scene and this completes the quest, unlocking:

*BEEP* YOU, CLAWZ!

Complete all three missions.
