I've had most of the gitches mentioned, thankfully playing a different mission or restarting the 360 was able to fix it. The one annoying glitch I havent been able to fix is at the end of STAG party

(possible spoiler warning)

When its time to make the decision, the game wont let me move at all, cant drag him...cant throw him...nothing -.- Just have to stand still for a full minute until my decision is made for me -.-

I didn't really encounter this, as you have to do something to make it happen, but it kinda breaks your game.

Saints Row: The Third - Head Stuck In Wall Glitch - YouTube
Lol, had that happen in either Saints Row 1 or 2 (I think 2, but I played both around the same time.) Some chick got her head stuck in a metal diamond patterned gate. I would run into it and it would stretch out. Finally pushed it far back and it was stretched out like 10-12 feet in game.

As for me on The Third, nothing major. Random nitro boosts left on the street. Got some photos of them coming out of my guy's buttcheeks.

A rocket from the launcher left in my hand after I switched weapons. I messed around with this one for a bit just curious. Firing weapons (even the rocket) didn't fix it. Neither did changing/buying clothes/going naked. I finally saved and reloaded and it left.

Motorcycles front wheels sticking in the ground... mainly the Estrada. I think once with the Sandstorm.

Fully upgraded the Decker crib and fell through the top from an aircraft. Got stuck inside. Luckily it was right after a mission, so I reloaded.

Only one that's bothered me is the garage. I have a decent bit of vehicles in there and it likes to freeze/lock up. I pretty much just jack whatever I want now.

Oh, and one from co-op. He was redoing his character in Image As Designed, so I was out pissing off gangs. A luchador ended up stuck in place running. I took some photos and everytime I'd come out of the photo, he'd fly backward (like a split second moonwalk) maybe 5-10 feet, then rush forward and keep running in place. Finally killed him and walked toward the building. A minivan was stuck doing the samething, only a little less noticably due to the size ofthe vehicle and the distance being the same. Took photos and the same thing. I finally shot her in the face.

Sometimes the GPS marker wouldn't appear whenever I activated a quest or started an Assassination mission.

I can confirm two of these.

#1 is the for whatever reason the game cuts the center channel completely. I had a buddy over and he was using my 5.1 headset and I was using my Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Around every hour or two the center channel would go completely quiet. Had to go back to 360 dashboard and start the game back up to correct it. This explains vehicles becoming almost completely silent as well as any audio that would be sent through the center channel.

It's not the console hardware either his is an old first gen second revision and my 360 is a slim second revision. Also I was getting my optical out directly from my 360 and he was getting his from the AV VGA cable.

#2 Is not being able to take human shields after 30 minutes to two hours. This is also other Y button related bugs and issues. Brutes not being able to be taken down and some others that have been mentioned.

A third one that I haven't seen mentioned is a weird bug that we had playing co-op. If some condition was met when you were calling up someone and the other player died or got a mission checkpoint you would be stuck looking at the phones calling list. Only fix was to go to dashboard.

Another odd bug was that after awhile he could see the enemy gang, but not the gang wipe icon on the mini-map or the icons that appear over their head when you start it. While I could see them fine. We both started the game from the beginning in system link. After about six hours this started and it didn't matter who was the host I could see them, but he couldn't.

Just had that Professor Genki red star animation glitch last night. Blots out most of the screen and kept doing the same thing when I was retrying to see if it would go away. Had to restart.

I guess I've been lucky with my lack of glitches considering the trouble some are having. A few though:
  • Choosing a vehicle from the garage occasionally freezes the game. No big issue to dashboard it and reload, but it does get old after a few times.
  • Had the Matt Miller problem where he disappears halfway through the fight. Hitting the dashboard and replaying the level fixed it. A minor inconvenience but it did seem a tad retarded that I had to play the mission where I'm a toilet more than once.
  • At one point I played through about 16 survival missions before I realized it was cycling through the same 4 over and over again. I checked the stats and after beating 16 Survivals it only registered 4 were complete. Again hitting the dashboard and reloading prompted it to move me along to the actual fifth instance, but I did end up doing 12+ survival missions that I never got credit for.

    All in all no deal breakers, but I can understand not enjoying this game as much if the achievements weren't popping, the sound cut in/out, or there was a giant red something preventing me from seeing what's on the screen.

I'm enjoying the game but this is starting to take the piss, does anyone know if deleting the game update will solve the problems?

Encountered quite a few glitches.

*--> In the cyber-space fight with the huge Matt Miler guy, he jumped into mid-air and disappeared, and didn't re-appear. Restarted the fight a few times, exact same happened. Had to leave it a day before starting the mission again.
*--> (in co-op only) Sometimes when I open my phone and press to call someone, the screen freezes and I can't do anything.
*--> Music stops playing, everything seems to be silent.

Whenever I started a Heli Assault, the car that I was protecting would never spawn. After countless attempts to get it to spawn, it did.

I can't even play the game anymore. If I load my save or even start a new game, it begins to load and then kicks me back to the main menu. This started after I purchased the Season Pass. Basically, I gave them more money and the game completely stopped working. Their website is down so I can't even go there for help.

Well, since completing Act 1, achievements have stopped unlocking for me. Hi-Jack 50 cars, upgraded crib and Ho Boat mission achievements have failed to pop. That's 45g I'm short now. I've had enough today, as my internet was supposed to be turned on today, but Sky have failed to help. So all in all, I've had a shitty day and can't be arsed with this game anymore. Not happy. Was enjoying it as well.

Looking for people to join me in an epic Minecraft build once again. Its in creative, so if you are interested, message me for details.

Only glitch I encountered is that the game seemed to drop frame rate when driving for a split second every so often. It didn't really bother me too much though

Several achievements have failed to unlock (I'm falling-free falling) or unlocked late. I had to replay the 'destroy/save tower' mission multiple times before I nabbed both chevos.

A major glitch I have encountered is that when I start a mayhem or insurance fraud activity, the target money you have to hit is set at $0 so I just complete it without pressing a button. Makes it easy I guess but defies the point of playing.

A couple glitches i encountered today were car jacking a person and there is no one in the car but my character looks like he kicking some ass or he is just insane. Also, stealing a military vehicle and one of the military guys bodies are halfway through the hood and all i see is his legs and i could barley drive

I've encountered a couple fun glitches lately, thankfully nothing game-breaking like the stupid matt fight I had earlier which was the worst (had to replay the mission 4+ times).
I was cleanin up the gang operations and on the southern left island (below the 3 Counts Casino) on some boats enemies would just respawn on top of one another. It got to be ridiculous. I flew over to the boats got "gang operation discovered" and then watched in humor as the luchadores kept spawning on top of one another eventually piling into a big mess. No matter how many I killed I couldn't get them to stop respawning...had to restart the game but it was still entertaining.

A few I've come across is in the mission where you kidnap STAG cover boy and when you pick him up the screen goes black but you can hear sound, had to quit out and do that again. Also I bring my pistol out to a ped and they just runaway, what happened to mugging? Lastly half the time when I try to enter a vehicle via jumping through the windows (duke style) sometimes it doesn't work, I know you sprint up then press Y cuz I already have the achievement but the feature has been iffy for me since the start.

Now this ain't a glitch but I must say the graphics on the game suck at major standards.

None yet.

Haven't got to the Matt Miller fight yet, hell I still haven't even done the Trojan Whores mission but already the only part of Steelport I don't own 100% is the section with Zimos and the airport on the very right side of the city.

Got almost all upgrades too (I'm level 48 with everything but Nitrous, infinite ammo and no vehicle/falling damage owned).

I had a glitch where I fell through the floor of the map. I pulled out my parachute and those mechanics worked fine, but I still kept falling into the bottomless abyss with the Steelport universe above me.

Angry free free falling glitch

Has anyone else had an issue with the 'I'm free free falling' bit? you jump out the plane and have to catch Shaundi, but my game just does nothing no movement at all I'm just floating not even remotely falling, and its so early on in the game its pissing me off I didn't buy a game to do the tut build a character and then do nothing!

Anyone know how to fix this??

I was riding a motorbike at high speed and went into an elevated bridge....I was literally stuck inside the structure and I couldn't get out, so I had to load an autosave and luckily for me it was only 5 minutes lost, which didn't bother me since I was just travelling to a destination.

The game lags now and then for saving or when I get an achievement, which I don't mind unless it lags during combat, which gets a little annoying.

Regardless, I'm having a blast playing this game....can't wait to get Saints Row IV.
