Post here if an achievement is glitched or if there are any other glitches involving missions and stuff. Make sure you haven't used any cheats in the game as it disables achievements.

Seems like the "Jumped In" Achievement is causing people, myself included, problems.

the only prob i had with saints 2 was the "push RT to detonate" when bombing the trucks. i had to start the game over because of that and it was the last gang i went after :/

im sure there will be plenty of new posts if any pop up.

I gained a few achievements that didn't pop until I left the game and then returned (didn't know I missed them until they popped)

I also had a glitch with one of the vehicle theft side quests.

I Had to collect a boat, and when I jumped into it the game didn't register that I did so (you need to go far enough into the highlighted area that it dissapears)

I also had to upgrade both grenades and molotov's before I could get the cowboy up achievement (didn't have to do flashbangs or emp's)

very rarely the game freezes for a few seconds a bunch of times.

The waypoint system when your in a boat sucks (not really a big deal though), and although its not really a bug, nitro is pretty much useless for anything other than a quick start (On long straights no one has any trouble keeping up with you when you hit the jets)

I've had loads of technical problems. First and foremost, I made two characters in the Initiation Station and the game refused to allow me to download anything.

And after eleven hours of playing (and completion of at least one full Act), I suddenly noticed that I had not been awarded any Achievements.

Oh, and my game just froze for no reason toward the end of a mission. That sucks, too.

For the downloading of characters, you have to login on the site and view your uploaded character and there should be a button to add to download queue.

As for the achievements other people are saying a partial workaround is to save then dashboard and when you boot the game up it may unlock some of the ones you should have gotten.

With achievements not popping up, or the game not showing in the achievements list at all, is fixed by going to memory and clearing your cache

I unlocked the Act 3 achievement, but not the other story achievements. You can feel free to check my gamercard and you'll see I didn't get Act 2 or the other story missions.

UPDATE 1:Strange that Act 1 and 2 along with some story missions didn't pop up. It says I already completed 45 missions. I have also tried the dashboard strategy and it didn't work.

UPDATE 2: Cleared my cache and still nothing. I hope I am not the only one with the problem.

Not got the game till the morning, but do they not mention completing those parts in a specific way? They read that way to me. Perhaps that's why they haven't unlocked?

Its a one way or the other type deal with 2 achievements for each one I think (not reached that point yet)

It seems that the best thing to do is make sure your leave the game and return sometime between getting your first safehouse and finishing act 1.

Yes this has also happened to me. Well I haven't gotten to Act 3 yet but the first achievements did not pop.

I also just completed http://deckers.die and did not get the achievement for that one either.

I've restarted my console and cleared the cache, and on a fresh save load it awarded me a challenge achievement (Haters Gonna Hate) which I should have got a while ago but not the achievements for the Acts.

Looks like I'm gonna have to replay half the game as I haven't properly saved until now :S

Edit - Whoops just got Act 2 achievement then but yeah I definitely did not get either achievement for Act 1

I've had a few problems myself. Just with the game though, not achievements.

First of all, X is reload. When I press X, I expect the character to reload. Not stand there and pick their nose. The number of times I've pressed reload while ducking to get a little health back, then popping up to shoot one bullet and having to reload is astounding. I'm surprised I didn't unlock a challenge for that.

I also had the path markers for cars glitch out in missions or activities all the time. Take this path, no this path, no this one. Make up your fucking mind so we can get away from this never ending stream of people chasing us, game!

I'd also like to thank whoever decided to map "enter car" and "grab human shield" to the same button. The number of times I got killed because I wanted to hop in a car and drive out of there, but my character grabbed a shield instead... Ugh. I should get another challenge for that one.

There's more, but I'm too annoyed and too tired to go on right now.

I've had issues with visual artefacts and not having nearby shops popping up on my minimap. I think installing it on my HDD may help with that though, I think I had the same issue with SR2 as well.

I haven't had any achievement glitches but I've had some other weird stuff happen. Sometimes the cut scenes end before the scene is actually over, people glitching into walls, gps gets screwy sometimes.

I have the same issue. Act 2 and 2 other achieves did not pop doing with the story. Did the workarounds suggested and did not work.

You have to on your map and then manually select 'collectibles', if you do that, they do show up...

EDIT: I also had a cheevo glitch up on me, it was the 'Cowboy Up' cheevo. I already upgraded at least one weapon in each slot to it's maximum, but to no prevail... Am I the only one?

Did you fully upgrade one of your grenades? I was missing that when I thought it was glitched.

I did that, but now I upgraded a non-laser shotgun and it did pop, although I did max. upgraded the Laser shotgun... Weird, but in the end: "I got it!" (with terrible Mario accent)

U really shouldn't skip this game because the achievements might be glitched. Usually ppl who got the glitches report them to the forum, which is so small part of the ppl who have no problem gettin the cheevos (like me).

i had a big problem with the car torpedo challenge for the completion of the challenges. It wouldn't go up normal through doing them. It occasionally went up a little every time I get a milestone progress for another challenge. I also heard it happened to several other ppl too. Thank god I'm finally done with all the achievements in this game. Hopefully they'll patch some of the problems by the time dlc comes out.

Havok engine or whatever glitching like a motherfucker. Was doing one of the Snatch missions in the Deckers territory and hit a bump after hitting the nitrous. Car was flipping all over the place and didn't end until the car blew up.

Amongst the usual problems that carry over from the other games...

11-20-2011, 08:43 PM
Game freezing occasionally.
Had my car glitch into a tree so that I couldn't drive it, while I was being chased by 4* Deckers.
Random lag spikes, even when playing solo.
Very rarely, my guy will just slam into the floor when trying to do the Bo-duke-en thing.
And though this isn't really a glitch, the Y button being tied to damn near every action in the game is a huge pain in the ass. I can't count how many times I'd try doing a photo op and accidentally tackle them, or how many times I try grabbing a human shield and end up jumping in a car, or vice versa. Very poor planning having that button tied to so many actions.

Random lag spikes, even when playing solo.Like your cursor and camera will randomly move a few inches to the left or right of what you were shooting at? I've gotten that a few times.

Agreed. Trafficking was very annoying because of that. I just want to steal one of the cars that drove up but nope, the guy got out just in time to turn my "steal car" into a "grab shield". I've accidentally grabbed a few people who wanted a photo as well.

No, I'll be driving (usually, though sometimes walking) and the game will freeze for little second long periods for about 10 seconds

I also see people float down from the sky sometimes instead of spawning on the ground

My friend and I just encountered a potentially game-breaking glitch. During the mission Convoy Decoy after you have stolen a VTOL you have to go clear out a blockade on a bridge so your convoy can roll through. Only problem is that after clearing out the blockade the game still thinks there are enemies there so your teammates never move forward and you can't complete the mission.

I registered just to chime in and say I'm having the exact same problem. Were you ever able to resolve it? I can't find anything that seems to fix it.

I posted it on the Saints Row bug report forum, but who knows if it'll ever get seen. Since there's no such thing as searching over there, I'll post a link. I hope that's ok. A comment from someone else may help it get addressed.

God damn taunting is broken as fuck. I just taunted a decker who was standing there minding his own business and it took FIVE taunts for him to notice me. I can understand other, more bizarre glitches being missed, but how did they not detect and fix the broken taunting before the game shipped?!

I keep encountering a glitch where when I join my friends game, I get stuck at the loading screen, though it says I'm in his game.

Another one is when I join his game, there is absolutely NOTHING in the game world. No cars, no enemies, no anything. My friend will have things though, and it just looks like he is sitting and floating around haha.

Also a note, these glitches haven't been keeping me from having this be one of those most fun times I have had with a game in a while.

Had one last night where I tried to play my last escort mission. It said to kill a target so I swing back and go to the spot but there is no one there! Now there was an icon for his location stuck on the hud. I tried it again and it told me to do a Powerslide for 1 second. I did... several times. Wouldn't register. I gave up and went and got all the car jacking done.

11-21-2011, 03:13 PM

1. Some kind of neverending "Reload" sound while playing coop. Sometimes...
2. Hijacking a car the fast way and dying after ending the procedure like a
rocket hits the vehicle. Strange...

But i think, there is a patch in progress.
