For me it was finding professor genki and killing him. he always drops 300k when you kill him. Not that I know an easy way to find him...

buy cheap buildings/shops. i get $40K every ingame hour or however it counts it. bought almost everything, in the process of buying all abilities now. i found that only upgrading pistol (going to duel wield) was a cheap way of minimising ammo consumption, as this was the only gun i used

Ah ok. Thanks for the info. Guess we have to find another way. The real estate thing seems to be the only legit way or by simply doing challenges/missions.

Easiest way to make decent cash (starting out in Act 1) is doing a Professor Genki activity a few times over. You should finish with $2k-$4k in under two minutes. I ran it about eight times and banked $24k before I started the story.


Side activities pay too. Investing in cheap buildings might also be worth doing you have some form of a steady cash flow ($100 per hour isn't much but it'll still buy you ammo for most guns!).

bummer, doesn't sound like anyone has came up with a really good fast cash method. I am leveling up pretty fast anyway, just thought someone may have found an exploit by now.

Tank Mayhem.

The hard level of tank mayhem, which is still very easy, gets you 6000k a run and it only takes a couple of minutes per run. Do that a few times, then go spend all the money on properties and stores. Then when you go back to do Tank Mayhem now you're making 6000k a run plus getting your rent money every few times.

I now own all the stores and properties in the game which gets me around 32k a pop. So that coupled with doing tank runs gets me like 100k in 20 minutes or so.

Plus tank mayhem is GREAT for challenges. You can get your gang member kills, tank kills, helicopter kills, brute kills, multi kills, explosion kills, etc, etc ,etc and all those challenges get you extra money and level you up FAST.

The Titan armored truck DOES throw out money when you blow it up. You can keep it in your garage and keep blowing it up over and over but it doesn't give as much as it did in previous games. Seems like a few hundred at most. And it takes at least two grenades to get the money out. Early on you can only hold 2 grenades so you have to continually be going back to the store to get more grenades. It's too much of a hassle and not worth the effort.

i though the money poped up after just hijacking the titan. whether it deposited any in or it was from something else not sure. but theyre few and far between for this to work.

just found out you get $100K for last mission (depending on choice) +10% cash depending on first act choice. most of my money came from storyline missions, which i invested in shops, which gave me an extra $30-40K after each mission

DarkCrown
11-20-2011, 02:22 PM
I almost bought everything before even starting the mission.

Once you buy every gunshop and building you almost earn about 35K per hours , + all the bonus you can add (upgrade) and make during the mission

So after a couple of people here saying the TITAN does not drop money i decided to check for myself one more time, and as i said earlier, the TITAN does drop money... When you blow it up you can see lots of dollar-bills spread around the blast area..

Came to post this basically. The easy level is almost impossible to screw up and not get the 2k, and it REALLY bumps up your challenge #s with no worries about retaliation from cops or gangs afterwards.

Niiiice. I past this icon while I was playing it yesterday. Will go back to this point and start it right away. Thanks!

Hard (the one at the northern part of the middle island) is impossible to screw up too. I've got it down to 30-40 seconds a run. Right where you start you're surrounded by newspaper boxes, garbage cans, rails and usually people. Blow all that crap up, move up a little bit and immediately to the left is an area with fences, more mail boxes and cans and a bunch of dumpsters. By now the combo is already 130 or so. Move up a little more, to the right is another area filled with fences. Blow that area up and combo is over 200 now. At that point there's usually an enemy tank there, blow that up and it's finished. If not, a couple of normal units will do it.

As far as the Titan, I'm starting to think it's random. I've blown them up and got money and I've blown them up and got nothing.

Thanks, good to know, I'll grind on that one instead then! Because of the spike in difficulty from 2, I figured I'd just grind for cash and upgrade like hell first before bothering with actual missions.

Just blew up a Titan and got 2,000 dollars out of it so it DOES work sometimes. I took a screenshot to prove it but didn't know they hadn't activated the screenshot section of the SR site. Booo.

Glad to see there are now some other methods of getting cash quicker than just waiting for it on your phone from properties and whatnot. I'll try that tank mayhem mission to see how fast I get the cash because at this point I'd just like to buy all the abilities and gun upgrades.

What ive been doing is, repeating one of the Tank Mayhem missions. It takes about a minute to reach the target and I get $6,000 each run.
Im not to far into the story.
And by doing this Tank Mayhem, you can work on some challenges, destroy X tank, destroy X heli, kill X mascots, multi kills, emu destroy (smart cars in this game), kill X Brutes, destroy X vehicles, etc. & you also earn respect to level up this way.

I will try to post a pic of which tank mission I keep replaying.

Another thing on Tank Mayhem seems to be, if you are grinding for respect, be sure to take some time to shoot down helicopters. You have plenty of time to mess with, and I noticed that taking down just one gave me a bigger respect boost than completing the mission for the first time.

Plus, the activity is pure fun, good stress relief. Something nice about being able to just trash untold amounts of crap with no worries. :p

The second crib you get in the game (Skyscraper with the helipad) Grab a helicopter, and head Northwest to Arapice Island. You will see a bunch of factory smoke stacks. There is a highway bridge in the middle of the smoke stacks. To the right of the bridge, is a line of smoke stacks that make up a barnstorming diversion. Fly through and you will get a little over 500 ft in barnstorming, and you will get 6,166 dollars each time. When you turn around and fly back through the other way, stay close to the left side for it to register.

Any way, each run takes about 20 seconds and nets you 12,332. I have a screen shot of the exact location on my saints row profile here
http://saintsrow.com/profile/tr1ckstr360 This seems to be the fastest way I've found so far to get money. Don't know if anyone else has discovered this yet, but this was found by me yesterday :) Enjoy!!!

*Edit - There is also a good spot at the airport. The island with the crash airplane in the water. Fly back and forth through the pairs of electrical power lines. It takes slightly less time and gets you 5,108 dollars each time. Screenshot of exact location in my profile, with tagline "Barnstorming Money 2"

**Edit - LOL, sorry for the edits. But just wanted to note, when you go to my saintsrow.com profile. Scroll down to the map, and it actually shows icons of my screenshots in the exact location their found on the mini-map :)

if you guys want to grind money then by all means go ahead. just wanted to let everyone know that you make more than enough money just going after the achievements. by the time i finished all the campaign missions, collectibles, and activities i had just about every upgrade purchased. by the time i had my 1,000 at slightly over 32 hours i had 4,000,000 with nothing to spend it on.

Just wanted to say that this is a great way for super quick cash. I make 12k each time for some reason.

I think the point is people want to upgrade their characters and weapons in order to use them to play the game with. It seems silly to wait until the end of the game to get all those upgrades and then have nothing to do with them because the game is over.

Also, I've completed the main story and I'm around 75% done and I'm still broke. I just don't understand where people get all these millions from. I'm still getting barely over 40k an hour and still spending every penny as soon as it comes in on upgrades.

Do you really get 600K from tank mayhem? 600K is the damage required. You only get about 6-8K from completing the challenge.

Anyway I got my money by leaving the game on while I sleep. Wake up to 150K (my current transfer limit) daily.

Haha yeah thanks :) but I got a ATTACK HELICOPTER eventually from one mission and I can call one of my homies to bring it to me.

Then again I tried the "barnstorming challenge" and failed all the way. I rather stick to do challenges now and buying all the properties. My hourly income is now over 30k. Good to go!
