Mayhem Tip

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.

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.

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 :/

Thanks for your work on this guide! I'm loving this game. Finally, a game without mp or co-op achievments! Who woulda thunk?

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 was going to mention that I dont thinks stunts in this game count for the 100% completion as people have been mentioning that they have got 100% without finding that many stunts.

So do we need to find all stunt jumps for any achievement?

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...

Don't save the challenges for last!

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.
