Achievement Guide and Roadmap

Completed! Feel Free To Post any Questions, Comments, or Concerns. Enjoy the Guide!

Overview:

Estimated achievement difficulty: 5/10
Offline: 49 [990]
Online: 1- see Jumped In [10]
Approximate time: 30-45
Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 2, if you miss Kuh, Boom or Tower Defense
Missable achievements: 1
Does difficulty affect achievements: No
Glitchy achievements: No
Unobtainable achievements? None
Extra equipment needed?: THQ Account
Do cheat codes disable achievements? Yes

Introduction:
Welcome to Saints Row: The Third, one of the craziest games of 2011. The 1,000 Gamerscore is relatively simple, but rather time consuming. However, the game is so fun, you won't even know you sunk the 30+ hours to obtain the full 1,000. No need to waste time now, let's get started!

Story-Related:
First of all the story. There are a total of 21 different missions. All the story missions are relatively simple and there is no need to play on a harder difficulty since there is no difficulty related achievement. Be aware of the achievements Tower Defense and Kuh, Boom. Depending on what choice you make, the other one will be missable. At the end of Act 1 you will be given the choice to either blow up a building or save it. Make sure you save your game and make the decision that you DO NOT want to live with. Once you obtain one of the achievements, load your game and continue on with the decision that you didn't pick last time. There is also more decision based achievements at the end of Act 3. When you are at the end of Act 3, you will be given the option to make 2 decisions. You can pick whatever one you want because you can simply replay the mission again after you have completed it. Simply pick the decision that you didn't the last time you played the mission.

You will recieve the following achievements for finishing the Story.


Act 1

  • Dead Presidents
  • The Welcome Wagon
  • We're Takin' Over
  • Opulence, You Has It
  • Tower Defense or Kuh, Boom
Act 2
  • Gotta Break Em In
  • I Heart Nyte Blayde
  • kill-deckers.exe and Titanic Effort
Act 3
  • Once Bitten... Braaaaaaains
  • Murderbrawl 31
  • Mr. Fury Would Be Proud or Gangstas... In Space!
By the end of the story missions you should have or be relatively close to finishing the achievements:
  • Shake and Bake (Complete 1 Challenge)
  • Bo-Duke-En (Hijack 50 Vehicles Dukes Style)
  • Haters Gonna Hate (Kill 1000 Gang Members
  • A Better Person (Buy 1 Upgrade)
  • Gellin' Like Magellan (Explore all 18 Hoods)
WARNING: After the completion of the story, DO NOT complete any Gang Operation missions (Flash the Pan). Doing so will result in a very limited amount of gang members and a harder time completing various Vehicle Theft+ Assassination missions and Challenges. It is best to save this achievement until the end so achieving 1000GS is much much easier

Intermission:
Now that the story is done, its time for the Assassination Targets ( Everything is Permitted) and Vehicle Thefts (Hijack It). The related guides to both achievements can be found below. This is also a good time to go for Gender Equality which requires you to spend 2 hours as a male and another 2 hours as a female. You will also want to buy the Collectible Finder upgrade which allows you to see all the collectibles on your map as long as they have appeared at least once on your mini-map.

Activities:
There are 10 different kinds of activities with the total amount coming in at 60. The activities are easier than ever and shouldn't give you any trouble. Activities are unlocked through the story missions and activites of the same kind. For example, completing Mayhem activities will unlock more Mayhem activities. Every activity will appear on your map once you have unlocked them.
  • Ouch.
  • Tune In, Drop Off
  • And Boom Goes the Dynamite
  • Fence Killa 2011
  • Your Backseat Smells Funny
  • Double Dose of Pimping
  • Porkchop Sandwiches
  • Tank You Very Much
  • Have A Reality Climax
Challenges:
Since most of the game is now done, the Challenges should be just a small grind away. Since you have already gotten Shake and Bake (Complete 1 Challenge), you need to complete all of the Challenges for You're My Hero! Boosting methods for each challenge can be found later in the guide and HERE. There are also achievements that are related to some of the challenges so it is best to knock those out of the way while boosting the challenges.
  • Ow My Balls! - Perform 1 Nutshot and 1 Testicle Assault
  • Love/Hate Relationship -Taunt/Compliment 50 Gang Members
  • Who Loves Ya Baby - Kill 50 Brutes
Miscellaneous:
So the game is basically completed besides some collectibles and gang operations, however now is not the time for that. You should now be focusing your attention on all of the achievements that are either wacky, or can be earned through using cash. By this time you should have a large amount of annual income to purchase everything that is required for these achievements.

  • Cowboy Up
  • Pimped Out Pad
  • Jumped In
  • Stay Classy Steelport
  • The American Dream
Mopping Up:
The last few achievements are finally here and they will all be earned just by completing Gang Operations and gathering Collectibles.If you bought the Collectible Finder upgrade early on then every collectible should be seen on your map. All of the Gang Operations should be shown on your map as well after all the exploration that was needed for all of the activities and missions . Completing all of the Gang Operations and Collectibles will even give you the City Takeover achievements as well. By the time you're done with everything you should have earned or be close to earning Third and 30 in which you have to play the game for 30 hours.

City Takeover Achievements
  • Hanging With Mr. Pierce
  • Mourning Stars
  • Hack the Planet
  • You're The Best...
  • Bright Lights, Big City

Gang Operations Achievements
  • Flash The Pan
Collectibles Achievements
  • Getting The Goods
  • Life of the Party

Activity Achievements

Flash the Pan - 10
Destroy all Gang Operations in Steelport.

Total Number: 32
The Gang Operations are represented by an icon of a fist. After completing a Gang Operation, you can see that portions of your map have turned from grey to purple.

You can tell where Gang Operations are located by bringing up your map and heading to areas that are still seen as grey. However, the icons for some Gang Operation missions will not be see on your map so you have to fly or drive around the grey areas of your map until you see a large group of gang members in one area. Kill them all and it will count as completing an Operation.

Note: The Gang Operations can be completed easily after obtaining aerial vehicles with mounted weapons.


Ouch. - 20
Complete all instances of Insurance Fraud

Total Number: 6
For these activities, you have to rack up a certain amount of points by throwing yourself into oncoming vehicles. Push or when you are about to be hit to activate a rad-doll like mode. You will often get launched up into the air so try to aim yourself to bounce off of another vehicle. Your point counter will keep going up as long as you don't touch the ground.
-
Try running at a vehicle head on, push to roll, and then push mid roll. This techniques launches you at the car at a faster speed and gives you more points.
-
If you are close to the total points that are needed, but the time is running out, you can repeatedly hit to drop to the floor and get anywhere between 300-600 points for every drop. For some reason, if you keep dropping to the floor the game won't recognize that the time limit is up.


Tune In, Drop Off - 20
Complete all instances of Trafficking.

Total Number: 6

In Trafficking, you get to sit as a passenger in a vehicle and defend your homie while he drives around to make deals at set locations. During these activities, there will be a large amount of gang members chasing you down and trying to stop you. While your homie is driving, try to shoot at the drivers of the pursueing cars to get them off of your tail. When you make it to a destination, stay close to your homie and kill any gang member coming towards you.


And Boom Goes the Dynamite - 20
Complete all instances of Heli Assault.

Total Number:6

In these activities, you have to defend one of your homies as they drive to set locations. The key is that you get to control a helicopter and wreck havoc on any enemy that tries to get close to them. Pay attention to your mini-map and kill every that appears. Stick to shooting the mini-gun and only shoot your rockets when you lock onto an enemy.

Fence Killa 2011 - 20
Complete all instances of Mayhem.

Total Number: 6
In the Mayhem activities, you have to rack up a certain amount of points using the weapons that are given to you. Rack up points by destroying nearly everything you see such as vehicles, fences, civilians, etc. Most of the time, you will be given an RPG with infinite ammo, so start destroying everything and spam that sucker to your heart’s content. If you’re not given an RPG, you will most likely be given an infinite number of frag grenades so just start spamming them. Don’t worry about using other weapons since they will just slow you down.

Your Backseat Smells Funny - 20
Complete all instances of Escort.

Total Number: 6
In Escort, you must drive away from pursuing news vans while a prostitute does her job in the back seat. You have to keep away from the pursuing vans until the Pleasure Meter is full. At times, you will be given simple objectives like killing a select civilian. A helpful tip is to speed down the interstate to get as much distance between you and the vans. If you believe in your driving skills, drive in the opposite lane of the interstate so the oncoming traffic will ram straight into the vans.

Double Dose of Pimping - 20
Complete all instances of Snatch.

Total Number: 6
In Snatch,you have to drive to pick up passengers, usually prostitutes, and drive them to a select destination, just like most taxi mini games. The prostitutes are usually guarded by gang members so you will have to deal with them first before you call the prostitutes to your vehicle. Quickly dispatch the gang members in order to call the prostitutes to your car by pushing .

Porkchop Sandwiches - 20
Complete all instances of Trail Blazing.

Total Number:
Trailblazing activities have you driving a ignited ATV while driving through checkpoints within a certain time limit. The only way to add to your time limit is to run into vehicles or civilians, which each give you a 1 second bonus. However, you have to make it to the checkpoint in order for the time to be added. For example, you hit 12 vehicles so 12 seconds will be added when you cross the checkpoint. You should not pose any caution while driving since the ATV can run straight through everything without any means of slowing.

Go Into the Light - 20
Complete all instances of Guardian Angel.

Total Number: 2
In Guardian Angel activities, you’re a passenger in a helicopter defending Pierce as he makes his way to a set location. Enemies will try to ram into Pierce to stop him so it’s your job to fire your RPG to stop them. Since you’re shooting at moving enemies, try to aim at where they’re going, not where they’re currently at. Towards the end of the activity you’ll be rappelling from a building and defending Pierce with sniper fire. Only shoot at the enemies when the red lines appear on your scope. If you’re having trouble sniping the targets, put 7-8 sniper bullets in their cars to quickly blow up their vehicle and kill them in the process.

Tank You Very Much - 20
Complete all instances of Tank Mayhem.

Total Number:
6
In these activities, you must rack up a certain amount of points by causing destruction in a tank. On your mini-map you can see specific targets that reward you with more points. Head towards every target while destroying everything in your path such as cars, fences, civilians, etc. Doing so will reward you with points and keep your combo going. The higher your combo, the more points you will receive. By the time you kill every target, you should only be a few thousand points away from your point goal if you haven’t acquired it already.

Have A Reality Climax - 20
Complete all instances of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax.

Total Number:
6
In these activities, you are forced to run through a deadly obstacle course filled with fire and electric traps, gun wielding mascots, ethical power-ups, and the occasional Brute. While running through these courses, pay attention to the point counter in the top left corner. When the total money you have is more than the total amount that is needed, you can run straight through the course, only stopping to avoid traps and kill mascots that stand in your way. In order to run through these activities quickly, you can rack up a high amount of points in the first couple of rooms by headshotting every mascot, shooting every ethical power-up, and avoiding every trap. The game gives you a fairly large time limit, so take your time in the first couple of rooms and rush through the course once you have the necessary amount of points.

However, if a collectible appears on your mini-map and you don't pick it up, you'll be able to see it on your main map. It is best to purchase this upgrade early so you will have all collectibles on your map by the time you are finished doing the Activities and Challenges.



Pimped Out Pad - 10
Upgrade one Stronghold to its full glory.

Strongholds are awarded while playing through the Story Missions. The three strongholds that can be upgraded are the 3 Count, Safeword, and Reactor. Each stronghold can be upgraded to level 2, but the cheapest one is the Safeword. The first Upgrade costs $20,000 and the second costs $40,000.

Gender Equality - 10
Play for at least 2 hours as a male character AND 2 hours as a female character.

After you have played for 2+ hours as one gender go to any Image as Designed store and changing to the opposite gender. Play for another 2 hours as your new self.


Third and 30 - 40
Spend over 30 hours in Steelport.

Play through game for 30 or more hours. This achievement is relatively simple because You will get fairly close to the time mark while going for all of the Activity achievements. You can check your total play time by: opening the cell phone, hitting Extras then Stats. Your total play time appears on page 1.

Gellin' Like Magellan - 20
Explore every hood in Steelport.

For the most part, this achievement will unlock through natural play while doing missions and activities. There are a total of 18 hoods

Ow My Balls! -10
Do your first nutshot AND testicle assault.

Give the gift of blue balls by performing each of these acts on the male gang members. The achievement will pop once you did one of each.

Nutshot: Kill an enemy by firing the final shot into the crotch of a male gang member.
Testicle Assault: Run up to any male gang member and click the .


Stay Classy Steelport -10
Kill 25 Gang Members each with 'the Penetrator' AND the Fart in a Jar.

Obtaining the weapons:
The Penetrator: This weapon can be bought at any Friendly Fire stores. It is under the melee specific weapons and looks like a giant purple dildo. If you don’t want to buy it, the weapon is awarded to you during the story missions.
The Fart in a Jar: This weapon can be received early on by going into a Friendly Fire store and upgraded the Flashbang to its fullest level. This weapon is also awarded during the story missions

You have to kill 25 gang members with the Penetrator and disorient 25 with the Fart Jars. To quickly do this you can toss one Fart Jar at an enemy and then kill them with the Penetrator. To simplify things, kill the gang members while standing in front of a Friendly Fire so you can quickly restock on your Fart Jars and remove the notoriety if things start to turn ugly.

Jumped In - 10
Create and share a character online.

*
You are required to have both an Xbox Live Gold membership and a THQ account.*

If the achievement never showed up, try going to the main menu, clicking "Community", log into your THQ account and then follow the steps above. You will not be asked to log-in when you are at the clothing store.

I like the route you are going with the guide, creating the separate guides as well. It makes everything easier

Nice guide so far. I can confirm for Love/Hate Relationship that you can compliment/taunt your own gang members.

You put minimum amount of playthroughs 2. For those achievements where you need to pick two different ways to beat the mission, you can just create two saves right before you do it. One save for one way, then quit out and do it the other way on the other save. Or you can save, complete it and not save, and just reload your last save, NOT the autosave.

The Ow my balls! is glitched for some people, just clear the cache and do it again if it doesn't work the first time.

And for jumped in:
You need to make an account on saints row website, go to a clothing store, press Y, then go to character gallery, and upload your person.

Just helping out, I will post further when I find out. I was thinking of doing this guide myself but too much work so I'll just help ya out.

Two glitches for me:

Cowboy up: Had fully upgrade at least one weapon/grenade in each slot, but no unlocked cheevo..

Mr. Fury Would Be Proud: I first chosen to save Shaundi and with the same savegame (because you can replay the final mission) I did the other ending, but the cheevo didn't pop here as well...

For shake and bake, the easiest challenge would be the hoods explored.

There are 6 Escort, 6 Trafficking, 2 Guardian Angel, 6 Heli Assault, 6 Insurance Fraud, 6 Mayhem, 6 Professor Genki, 6 Snatch, 6 Tank Mayhem and 6 Trail Blazing instances to complete.

There are a total of 36 Hitman targets, and 30 Chop Shop vehicles. (With the Hitman targets, you have to progress through the main story line before all targets become available. From memory, I think that the last lot of targets are unlocked after Act 1)

Total time played is at the very top of page 1 in the stats, and vehicles hijacked is at the very bottom of page 3 in the stats menu.

Never mind this one, I didn't know there was another mission for that end, so it's not glitched after all... at least not for me...

Just got this game, can you do online co-op? If you can then I guess the activities will be easier?

easiest challenge for me to complete was streaking for 600 seconds

Btw for destorying 25 tanks just get police notoriety up (do this at your first crib) until tanks spawn jack one then drive it into your garage and store then retrieve it then go to town destorying the tanks that spawn, you can also destory the helis that spawn for the destory 60 heli challenge, using the tank you can also get the destory 300 cars challenge and if you have unlocked the vehicle delivery upgrade when you get a high gang notoriety just call up a homie to drive a tank to you and then you can get the 1000 gang kill challenge, and the kill 50 brute challenge

In Escort, you must drive away from pursuing news vans while a prostitute does her job in the back seat. You have to keep away from the pursuing vans until the Pleasure Meter is full. At times, you will be given simple objectives like killing a select civilian. A helpful tip is to speed down the interstate to get as much distance between you and the vans. If you believe in your driving skills, drive in the opposite lane of the interstate so the oncoming traffic will ram straight into the vans.
Spelling fixed in red and you had some double spacing. Just trying to help.
Also, nice work on getting this up and running. I was hoping for one and Bam! There's two.

Can you keep repeating the taunts/compliments on a few gang members or do they all have to be different?

In the melee category, only the baseball bat can be upgraded to level 2. Everything other melee weapon can only be bought. You could try having all of your upgraded weapons equipped at the same time. Lastly, try going to the main menu and then going back into the game, a couple of achievements were showing up after I did that.

What I did was go to the HQ crib and walk around the living room/pool/kitchen area/ then go upstairs to the bar area. Then when you come back down some of the gang member should be different. So I can't say for sure if it can or can't be the same couple because when done that way new members spawn. Also you may have to run into them if they are doing something like eating/smoking/on their phone so they drop it and focus on you.

It works, but they all have to be different. I updated the guide accordingly. Thanks for the heads ups.

Thanks, I'm trying to add every imaginable detail as possible for the least amount of confusion.

Video was added as well. Nice find.

To access the Vehicle Theft missions, go into your phone and click Saintsbook and then Vehicle Theft. These missions involve you driving to a certain area and looking for a certain vehicle. If you drive around the area, you will see the vehicle icon appear on your mini-map telling you exactly where the vehicle you need is. Once you hijack the vehicle, you need to drive back to a certain point while police and gang members chase you down. The less damage you do to your car, the more money you get when you make it to the destination.
as for the vehicle theft missions i found out that it infact is missible if you have completed the game and whiped out all the stag but i found out if you randomly join someone who has stag in co op can even be a quick match you can get it that way

hey koopakiller found an easy way on the game to get 100% city takeover and all activities complete (plus all the achievements related to it) first you have to be on the mission when STAG attacks your HQ. (the mission before the last one for act 2.) Make sure you save right before the mission. When choosing who to hand Josh Birk to (Shaundi or Cyrus) Hand Josh Birk over to Cyrus, complete the mission, and go through all the screens. Afterward load your game save, and go to your cell phone menu and the territory take over selection screen should pop up. after you select it, save rinse and repeat. hope this helps and saves people a little time. with this method you should unlock all activity achievements and territory takeover achievements.


just make sure you give me credit if you add it to your guide
