Please do not steal this guide for your website without first asking me. This is my first attempt at a guide, so it won't be perfect. Any help from others will be credited in the guide.

Overview:
+Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
+Offline: 49 (990http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png)
+Online: 1 (10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png)
+Approximate amount of time to 1000: At least 30 hours(as there is an achievement for this), but I am guessing more like 40-50
+Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1 maybe 2 if you didn't save before act choice achievements
+Number of missable achievements: 1, at the end of Act 1 you have a choice to save or blow up a building, save before making the choice and then you only have to replay that mission to get the other achievement.
+Do cheat codes disable achievements? Yes, they disable achievements and autosaves
+Does difficulty affect achievements? No, can be done on Easy, Normal, or Hardcore
+Glitchy achievements? Yes, some issues with achievements not wanting to unlock, there are a few workarounds but nothing concrete from the developers yet.
Workaround 1: Save your game then dashboard and load it back up, this will sometimes pop the achievements you missed.
Workaround 2: If workaround 1 didn't work, then try clearing your cache as this has been said to help some people.

Introduction:
Saints Row: The Third is a sandbox game that is just over-the-top chaos and fun. Think GTA with dildo bats, zombies, advanced technology to the point of laser rifles and tanks, and of course Burt F'in Reynolds! This game doesn't take itself seriously, and because of this is just random fun and funny moments.

NOTE: You don't have to do anything in a specific order, but story does unlock more activities and gang operations, so you may want to run through story first.

Campaign: (Worth 310http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png)
Pretty basic, just follow exactly what the game tells you to do. To start a mission open up your phone with the Back button, and it is the middle top. There is 1 point in the story to watch out for as you are playing:

Act 1:
When you have the choice to keep or destroy the building manually save your game as there is an achievement for each option.

Act 3:
When you have the choice to save someone or kill someone else, it doesn't matter which you choose as you can repeat this mission after beating it to do the other way.

Activities: (Worth 200http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png)
There are 56 activities to do in this game. There are a couple that unlock special things for you, but nothing that special except a Tron looking bike and car for completing Cyber Trail Blazing. For help on each activity see the achievement below for that specific activity.

City Takeover: (Worth 180http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png)
You have to fully takeover each district in the game, the things that add to this are:
Stores: Buy all of them
Properties: Buy all of them
Activities: Complete all of them
Gang Operations: Complete all of them (Some don't appear as icons on your map, so go to areas that are not purple and look for a large group of enemies there)

Mop-up:
Now that you have finished the storyline stuff, you have collectibles, challenges, hitman targets, chop shop, stunt jumps, and barnstorming to finish. For help on a specific one see that achievements below!

Conclusion:
Some of the cleanup achievements may take a while, other than that the rest are straightforward and pretty easy. This game is over-the-top insane fun, so go out and kill at your will!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP0T07w=.jpgOuch. 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Insurance Fraud.

Tips: I find it easiest to get in a car, drive to the closest highway and get out, then just keep comboing from car to car without touching the ground to get some nice scores.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP2ZQhk=.jpgTune In, Drop Off 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Trafficking.

Tips: I find it easiest to do once you have upgraded weapons, and maybe even infinite ammo and/or no reload for a weapon. When you get to one of the locations, get out of your car as you will have access to your dual wielded weapons or heavier weapons. Also don't worry about taking a different car, you do not need to keep the starter car!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPuvE+I=.jpgAnd Boom Goes the Dynamite 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Heli Assault.

Tips: When you are in the chopper without homing rockets, the machinegun is your best friend! The rockets take way to long to reach the ground, but 3-5 hits with your machinegun will take a car out. ALWAYS pay attention to your minimap and take out the helicopters as soon as you see them spawn.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPrlK6I=.jpgFence Killa 2011 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Mayhem.

Tips: Fences, trash cans, and other small items are your best friend. They may not give much money at the beginning, but they will increase your multiplier and start racking up mad points. Always check to see if you have the infinite rocket launcher, as that is the best way to go, if you don't then use your inifinite grenades!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPv6WMY=.jpgYour Backseat Smells Funny 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Escort.

Tips: Drive fast, don't hit stuff, and stay on the road if you are the driver. Also do NOT fire at the targets you have to kill, this will decrease your pleasure bar, so instead just run them over. If you are the performer, just do what appears on your screen.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP6nOMg=.jpgDouble Dose of Pimping 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Snatch.

Tips: Drive fast, and use a 4 door car as you will be recruiting them 2 at a time. The drop off point will be insanity, so just smash through as once they are out of your car they are counted as collected, so get out of there!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPlCqLw=.jpgPorkchop Sandwiches 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Trail Blazing.

Normal trail blazing Tips: Drive fast, run over all the flames on the ground, run into any cars you can without veering off path, and if you have nitrous in all vehicles use it!

Cyber trail blazing Tips: Get all the tanks you can, do not go through the giant flaming things, run over the small blue flames on the ground as they are just like the flames on the ground in normal trail blazing.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPoDzoo=.jpgGo Into the Light 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Guardian Angel.

Tips: Pretty straight forward, snipe, or rocket launch. If you have the homing rockets use them on any vehicles!

Note: You will get this by progressing through story if you don't beforehand. (Thanks to Warren17 for reminding me of this)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP0Au9Y=.jpgTank You Very Much 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Tank Mayhem.

Tips: Your main priority is the people or vehicles marked in red, but just like normal Mayhem, Fences, trash cans, and other small items are your best friend. They may not give much money at the beginning, but they will increase your multiplier and start racking up mad points.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPqDWZo=.jpgHave A Reality Climax 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Complete all instances of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax.

Tips: This is much easier once you start getting immune to damages, if you have immunity to bullets, explosions, and fire all you have to worry about is the electricity :D Also, you do NOT have to kill all the brutes, they are infinite spawn, so book it past them once you unlock the exit.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP9HwFs=.jpgEverything is Permitted 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Kill all of the hitman Assassination targets.

Tips: Read the description of what you have to do when you enter the area.
If you finished all the ones you have, you may have to progress through the story more.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UP4+wQc=.jpgHi-Jack It 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Steal and deliver all Vehicle Theft targets.

Tips: You have to get one of the marked cars, you cannot use one that is already in your garage :(
You can use notoriety wipe through your phone (purchase it in your upgrades) to get rid of the stars from getting the vehicle. If you don't want to wait for the notoriety to decrease, you can save the game, dashboard, then load up the save and they will be reset.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPvjNhk=.jpgGetting the Goods 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1547/UPnIORk=.jpgLife of the Party 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/site/gp-g.png
Find 100% of all Collectibles.

Pretty straight-forward, there are 80 collectibles in the game. The easiest way to do this is when you hit respect level 20 you can buy "Collectible Finder" for $49,500 in the upgrade shop(Middle left icon in your phone) that will display any collectibles you haven't found on your minimap and even full map from your cell phone. You can alternatively use the interactive map by MSxbox-world found HERE (http://www.msxbox-world.com/xbox360/guides/242/saints-row-the-third/index.html) but be warned it's currently buggy(thanks to Mister Buds for tip on it being buggy).

Just a small thing about the Stay Classy Achievement:

You can get the fart in a jar by upgrading the stun grenade to level 4. Also: you don't have to kill the enemy with the fart. You have to: throw the fart, and then kill the stunned enemy with your penetrator. Thats how I got it.

Great guide. I just finished the game and Never unlocked the Ho boat though. Luckily I have a separate save not to far before that mission started. I was playing offline when I beat it. Maybe thats connected to why it didnt unlock.

you have a good guide going but don't link to the ms-xbox world collectible map. it's terrible. i attempted to use it when i started the collectibles but it is a mess. pictures don't correspond with the correct locations and some of the pictures are in the wrong category (i.e. photo op picture in a sex doll location).

also, i'm eagerly awaiting a gang operation map.

Thanks for the tip, will make a note of that in the guide in-case there are some people who want to use it still. I just used the in-game Collectible Finder, so I didn't know it sucked. As for the gang operation map, I may work on one, but I haven't found them all yet.

Here's a little tip for anyone having trouble with Who Loves Ya Baby once you get a VTOL use it to go attack one of the gang operations. Just keep killing the gang members that show up and you should get 4 or 5 notoriety easily and they'll start sending out Brutes. Just keep using your missiles from the air on them and they won't even have a chance to harm you. I got the achievement easily doing this.

It's also good for Haters Gonna Hate and the kill gang specialists challenges since you can do it without very much risk to yourself if you find it difficult. I don't know about other difficulties but on easy they never even called in choppers to take me down even at 5 notoriety they just kept sending Brute trucks most of which spawned right in front of my cross hairs so it was lock, missile, repeat.

I don't know about other difficulties but on easy they never even called in choppers to take me down even at 5 notoriety they just kept sending Brute trucks most of which spawned right in front of my cross hairs so it was lock, missile, repeat.


it depends on the gang you make mad. deckers i know do not use choppers. my only real question is, for cowboy up. can you use weapons that only have level1 upgrades? or do they all need to have the max number of upgrade slots?

Ah. Did not know that. Even still can the VTOL even be easily taken down by a chopper? I know I was getting shot from all angles during Convoy Decoy and never even took what remotely looked like major damage from VTOLs and tanks. So swatting an occassional chopper shouldn't be too much trouble.

make sure you get specialist kills before you clear out all the gangs.

You can always just get the gangs pissed off and the specialists will show up. I am only missing like four achievements and anytime I start a survival side mission I get brutes and specialists.

If you have the Shepherd pistol upgraded to level 4, it fires explosive rounds and it's alot quicker to use it than grenades, especially when have unlocked dual wield for pistols. This game is great and excellent job with the guide.

Hi-Jack It
You CAN use certain vehicles from your Garage for this achievement. Since certain fraction vehicles disappear from the game after you complete it, you can use the ones stored in your garage which are awarded to you to complete their mission set.

make sure you get specialist kills before you clear out all the gangs.


you can also get them after you clear out all the gang by doing certain vehicle thefts and survival, after you kill enough of them after the mission ends or is failed.

i was going to make a new thread but i figure i'll just ask here: do homie health upgrades effect the activities at all? i keep failing heli assaults because the splash damage from exploding vehicles does so much damage to whoever i'm protecting.

i'd like to know before i waste my money on them.

I'm having problems getting the taunting gang members challenge. I taunt a ton of them and the little taunt icon goes on the screen but it isn't counted in the challenge screen. I probably taunted 200 or so but the challenge counter is only at 18 and it rarely moves. I taunted when they are not upset, during a fight, after a fight and before a fight. Nothing seems to work.

What is the trick to getting the taunts counted in the challenge counter?

A Better Person, and Ow my Balls glitched for me and didn't unlock. I tried quitting to the dashboard and reloading my game and Ow my Balls popped. I'm going to try clearing my cache tomorrow.

Update: never had to clear my cache just had to get another upgrade, unlocked after I made an upgrade purchase after I had restarted my console on the same save and everything.

Complete ALL Challenges.

To see what challenges are, bring up your phone with the back button and open up Saints Book, and they are all listed in there with stat tracker even. I will put a link to a challenge guide when there is one here.
I think this one is a major missable one tbh cant find any stag after completing the game and also if you do all areas no gang members :S :/

make sure you get specialist kills before you clear out all the gangs.

You can still get them once you've gotten rid of the gang.

For example I got rid of the Deckers and just went back to do Snatch on hard with a tank and just kept blowing up Deckers. Took like 10 minutes to kill 50 specialists

i did ALL Fist Icons-gangs, so no icons on map

i've got a question:
Does Anyone know where the gangs location is in:
New Colvin
Stanfield
Carver Island

i'm basically in the dark where, just point me there, flying or drive, and i'll kill the gangs

100% completed on Monday, no you don't need stunt jumps, or barnstorming. Yes, you can keep playing challenges and play the alternate ending for the 2 act 3 achievements after you finish the game. For Flash in the Pan you have to wait until a certain point through the story before the last 4 gang ops show up, tow morningstar on the central island and two luchadores didn't show up until I was half way through and then pretty close to done, make sure you finish all the other gang related challenges before you clear them out or you may really struggle with that or not be able to complete them. Challenges are a pain to miss because one of the survival missions only comes up when everything in the main story is done so a full replay would be necessary.

Added tip for gang ops: Look for grey spots on the map, they get filled in by buying property, finishing activities, and gang ops destruction. The gang ops are always very close to the grey spots they control still. If you are flying use the jet bike or v-tol and go really low as they don't show up unless you get really close. Hopefully some of that helped...

I recommend working on the challenges as you're playing the game. The tedium of grinding those out after you've completed everything else is unbearable at times. Taunting 50 gang members is especially grueling after you've conquered Steelport. There's nothing worse than running around to find a gang member, taunt them, run inside to drop notoriety and then looking again for a different gang member to taunt, rinse, repeat.

The best thing to do before you really get going in the game is to take a comprehensive look at the list of challenges. Consolidate when possible.

For example: You have to blow up 50 Emus, Hijack 250 vehicles (I think) and start 50 hostage situations. I say "start" because you can start it then immediately exit the vehicle and it will count. So basically, I'm just running against traffic keeping an eye out for Emus. Each car I come across I check to see if there are two people in it. If so, make sure you jump in from the front of the vehicle because a carjacking from the side will knock both the driver and pedestrian out of the vehicle.
