Glitches you've encountered

Enjoying this game, apart from it's glitches.
Post what you've experienced.
  1. I can no longer use human shields. The Y button does nothing.
  2. R3 no longer kicks people in the crotch. It does a smack to the head which has little to no effect.
  3. And the best one of all, the virtual fight against Matt Miller. My character says "oh shit!", and then nothing happens. He never re-appears, meaning I cannot complete the mission.

I encountered less bugs in Skyrim. At least I could actually fucking progress the storyline in that game.

1. sometimes people would appear half way through sidewalks and objects and could move properly.

2. when I had all the evade all damage upgrades and jumped out of a vehicle as it exploded it would sometimes kill me.

that's actually about it.

All of the vehicles in the game quit making sound. Nothing. No sound what so ever.

what i think(clears throat)is, uh, the developers, knowing there is glitches, pushed out this game to, uh, make a qiuck buck, and now alot of people are saying SR3 is glitched.

for me there is 2 Major glitch.

i was doing base jumping off 3 Count and the marker was at the entrance. i landed on the roof and i was stuck. i jumped, still stuck, i turned, WTF. i went left and right until it stopped. finally after jumping alot, i got down to the surface.

i stop my car, near the entrance, push Y, the car is in the building, as it did in SR1

I don't know if this'll work for you but it worked for me.
1)turn off your xbox
2)go through the entire mission again until you get to the ramp before you fight Matt.
3)turn the game difficulty to hardcore before the fight
4)get to the part where he turns invisible and there is a cutscene.
5)turn it back to casual

This also worked for my other glitch where it kept replaying the loading screen when you punch nyteblade and kidnap him.

So just turn it on hardcore before the glitch happened and voila

i once fell off a freeway bridge, into a house below. went thru the roof, landed on the floor, and was totally stuck, as it was just a scenery house, with no doors or windows, had to quit out & re-start to get back into the game.

I also have a huge red area that covers my screen when I play any of the Professor Genki activities. I cannot see a single thing and there is no way I can complete the Genki activities like this, which means I cannot get 1000G in the game unless there is some way to fix it.

EDIT- Restarting your xbox seems to fix this for now.

One of the buggiest games i've played this generation. Thankfully all the actual bugs were fixed by either playing a different mission, restarting the game from dashboard or restarting xbox.

Here's my list.

1. Half a dozen freezes/crashes forcing reboot.
2. Professor Genki - the red graphic cross graphic stayed on screen.
3. People and cars half way through roads.
4. Kidnap the actor guy mission, after picking him up game got caught in a constant loop resetting itself every 2 seconds.
5. Car engine noises disappearing.
6. Y button failure - Couldn't finish off brutes, no human shields etc.
7. Waiting 40 minutes for a specific npc to appear to complete assassination mission.
8. Died whilst hijacking a car, game decided to run me over despite being in the drivers seat.

and to cap it all poor development/testing not to realise that gamers might 100% all takeovers, thus making a number of activities and some assassinations a real chore to do, as you had to force gang members to appear.

Saint Row Glitches

Ok.. Well I'm extremely pissed off because I can't advance in the game WHAT SO EVER...On the mission where you dress up as evil nuns and kidnap night blade, after I enter the room and knock him out when the game loads after that it just keeps reloading constantly and I tried to reset checkpoint numerous times but it just keeps reloading. There's also the mission when I'm fighting Matt millers avatar he just flies up into the air when I have him down to 75% health. And iv tried not shooting him right off the back like others have told me but he still just flys away and doesn't come back... and since these are the only two missions that I can do to go further in the game iv been completely screwed.

Game audio stopping until I dashboard and reload.
"Y" button actions not working
Freezing during various missions
but the worst so far is almost every time I use my in-game phone, it just freezes and I have to dashboard out and reload the game.

I have had the trouble of no longer being able to use human shields. Had to restart the mission "3 Count Beat Down" like 4 times before it worked. I did clear the cache a couple of times in between. Eventually it worked.

And now it appears I've had the Act 2 achievement glitch on me. I got the "kill-deckers.exe" earlier and I just got "I heart Nyte Blayde" but no "Titanic effort"? I tried resetting the cache (I read somewhere here that that's supposed to help) but still nothing. Guess that means playing through to that mission again at some point?

Ouch, it sounds like you are having the worst luck with this game. Your game copy must be cursed or something.

I would suggest just trying to replay the mission again. To anyone else, keep a few separate save files spread out throughout the game in case something like this happens. Every few missions I save under a new file just in case if I have to revert back. I do this with almost every game that has the option to do so.

I'm not sure but I think it might be my mistake there. I've just got that achievement and (avoiding spoilers) the description on it is very much what I've just done? I don't quite understand why but the guide on here says that you get the titanic and decker achievements together?

I didn't get to that point in the game yet, but from what I've read in that achievement guide there are plenty of errors. Read some of the replies on that guide. Some achievements are listed to pop at the wrong times, while the guide maker also said there's 900 Single Player and 10 Multiplayer = 1000 lol.

I have encountered so many glitches during Saint's Row 3, it's unbelievable. Yeah, it's still a great game, but a lot of the bugs are very annoying.

  • I got stuck inside the highway tunnel, once, when trying to revive a co-op player..
  • The tires on my car go under the map while the rear tire's stay up.
  • Street Bike had no wheels.
  • Got blew up from a grenade and knocked me right through a building.
There are also a lot others that I can't think of.

I've ran across many glitches (most are not game killing, and all have been fixed with a reload of the save). Last night, me and a friend were co-oping as I completed the steal X vehicle activities... and for no apparent reason the cops got pissed off at us and would continually come after us more and more. We would hide out in our crib and it would take the cops off, then we just stood there and slowly went from no cops to 5 badges after us for standing in our own crib!

We had a good laugh, and it was luckily fixed after a reloaded save.

Red screen blocking view on Professor Genki

Not being able to press 'Y' on the mission to interact with the man on the mission you get the guys mask back

Going into an area to pick up a vehicle and then 5 seconds later telling me the vehicle is destroyed

But so far I've managed to sort out the first 2 by just turning my xbox off and on again and restarting the game. The last one, well I haven't turned my xbox off yet as I'm in no hurry to get that done as I have a lot of other things to do.

I got down to one activity left on my map. It was a Genki show one. I've got the big red X thing blocking the screen. Just shut down my Xbox and I'll go back and try again in a couple minutes.
