Most difficult activity

For me it was close between mayhem and snatch. But snatch wins the most challenging as it was the only part of the game I had to lower the difficulty

They're all much easier than SR2!

But if I had to say one I'd go for Heli assault. (Just because I used my city takeover on the last one)

i thought they were fairly easy this game. ive had trouble with insurance fraud in previous games because cars would just randomly stop spawning, but that wasn't a problem at all. trafficking i just used the FBI bear or whatever that has a mounted gun. then again, i did play on casual lol :/

I've been playing the game on Normal difficulty and have completed all the activities for Guardian Angel, Snatch, Escort and Tank Mayhem....they weren't too hard tbh.

However, I'm more worried about Trail Blazing and possibly Insurance Fraud, which I haven't tried yet apart from doing the first one.

I voted trail blazing because I had to retry the one with the burning 4wheeler a few times. Mayhem on the zombie level was really tough also but if you blow up enough fences it is cake. Insurance fraud was also tough at first but then I realized to go where there is fast traffic and not in the blue zones it tells you to go to. I found a freeway exit where I used for all of them and would get big $ in the $100,000 range. And Heli Assualt was easy for me, got them all the first try.

Heli Assault is frickin' EASY! Don't use the rockets! Just shoot them with bullets!

I hate escort, trafficking, trail blazing and insurance fraud.

I found them all to be rather easy, but I voted for Trail Blazing because that gave my friends the most trouble. What was the worst for me was Insurance Fraud in Multiplayer. The cars just wouldn't come, but in Single Player, they'd be all over the place!

Heli Assault is my nemesis. I have 2 Heli Assaults to finish on hard (along with one trail blazing on hard) to complete all of the activities, and I just keep failing! GRR!!

Cyber Trail Blazing or Trafficking.

Cyber Trail Blazing because the bike handling is ass in this game, and trying to drive the shittiest bike in the game in a half-pipe rather than flat road is just about the most terrible thing ever. The awful tron-inspired color scheme doesn't help matters either. Just stick to regular trail-blazing next time, as that one is both fun and actually provides a fair challenge rather than no challenge at all (Insurance Fraud, Mayhem, and Tank Mayhem are a few that are so easy that they might as well just give you the land, money, and respect just for pressing Y at the marker) or an insanely unfair challenge (like Escort, Snatch, and Trafficking, which I'll get to next). Cyber Trail Blazing is ass. It's the second most assy thing in this game (first is what they did to Johnny).

Now, Trafficking. What it comes down to is that your AI partner is just completely retarded. Get back in the car. No, get back in the car I'm sitting in. Great, you got downed by the enemies, now I have to get out and revive you. Okay, you're back up, so now please stop dicking around and get in the car. Okay, now our car got destroyed because you wouldn't get in it, so get into this new car. Come on, hurry up. Okay, you're in the car. Now drive the car. Not into the wall, use the road. Seriously, stop trying to drive through the wall. Okay, now this car is shot up too, get out. I said get out! Run away from it! You got blown up and need to be revived again. I can't get to you because of the fire and now I'm dead from all the enemies you wouldn't drive away from. This is total bullshit. I hate you, AI partner. I hate whoever programmed you to be so retarded. I hate whoever didn't properly test you and point out how broken you are. I hate whoever decided we needed not one, but TWO mandatory trafficking missions that I have to play in order to progress the story. I hate whoever is responsible for there not being a patch to fix this nonsense yet. I hate everything about trafficking and everyone responsible for its horribleness.
By extension, Snatch sucks because of the AI hating to get into cars. Stupid whores, get in the car already! Escort? I just really fucking hate when they randomly decide to send you halfway across the map so the stupid client can see the beach or buy a dildo or something retarded. That and when it throws the air time challenge at you in a place with no spots for potential jumps.

As for my poll vote, I voted for Trafficking because Cyber Trail Blazing was not included for some strange reason.

Surprised by all the complaints about Insurance Fraud here, though. Don't you guys know how to win? Just get on the highway and get hit by all the big trucks for huge distance and airtime. Once you have adrenaline, try to steer yourself into as many cars as possible before landing for huge multipliers. Same as SR2, fucking easy. Easiest activity in SR2 and it would be the easiest in SR3 if not for the addition of Tank Mayhem.

Same, never had a problem with Insurance Fraud.

Although I beg to differ about Trafficking.

It had its moments (like being surrounded by Morning Star cars as well as a brute flipping cars over on one particular mission, the Hard one for Zimos I think) but otherwise, it was still easy and the AI always got in and out of the deals and cars instantly then drove along roads and such.

The only hard part for me was switching quickly from my unlimited pistol ammo (which I used for 97% of Trafficking) to the rocket launcher to get the brute off my tail before he got too close.

Haven't experienced a single glitch on the game yet. I also don't understand the hatred for the game, I seem to be in the minority who love it and think it's incredibly fun just like the first two were.

2 come close to being the most difficult for me. The couple of hard insurance frauds, and 1 of the hard trail blazing on a quad.

The trail blazing is slightly harder though (I had to retry that dam activity like 10 times!. I'd keep running out of time about 2/3 of the way...)

Overall though, the activities on this are well easy compaired to saints row 1. (on sr1 the activities have 8 levels + the stupid ai... For example on the drug trafficing, you couldn't drive yourself, and for some strange reason the stupid ai would be driving AWAY! From the destination on the last few levels, so I'd have to run 1/2 way across the city with the fbi after me...) -_-

Having no problem with any of them except that. I'll use the tips that have been said in here though, hadn't thought to just use the MG.

All of these were pretty damn easy compared to SR2, and SR1.
I didn't really struggle with any of them.

It's the insurance fraud for me. All the streets seemed to empty whenever I activated it. Still haven't finished all of the activities yet, but tank mayhem is definitely my favorite though, with regular mayhem a close second. I love blowing shit up!

Tough call, but snatch or heli assult. So far have completed Tank Mayhem, Mayhem, Trail Blazing, Guardian Angel (all two of them, haha) and Insurance Fraud.

Guardian Angel is also a bit annoying. Luckily only the couple of them as I said though. Tank Mayhem is by far the easiest, IMO. I thought regular Mayhem is also easy but I see others having problems with it. Trail Blazing is also easy once you realize that speed isn't nearly as important as hitting stuff.

Trick to Insurance Fraud is building combos by controlling yourself in the air. Run in one direction, as it does seem the cars spawning is weird but they will spawn in the direction you run usually; let the cars hit you back into the center of the hot spot. Have to really try to get to adrenaline mode quickly and take advantage of it-- I've gotten combos in the 100k range during it.

Do Mayhem on that island before everyone turns into zombies, then it's so much easier.

You must have a magical copy of this game where the AI isn't completely retarded and for that I envy you.

They're retarded on Snatch (especially the Kinzie version with 5 Decker cars surrounding me) and taking ages to get into the car then when they do, I'm dragged out of it by a Decker so they also get out but otherwise, the game plays the same as the first two.

Like I said though, I have all activities completed and today have just finished The Ho Boat in the mission list so no more screwing around with anything other than the final 5 Gang Operations and all of the stunt jumps now.

Personally didn't think any of them were that hard at all. I didn't do the majority until I'd completed the story and had pretty much every upgrade so that's probably why, ha.
