|Ouch. (20 points)|

|Tune In, Drop Off (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Trafficking.|
In this activity your job is to defend your homie while he drives around to make deals at set locations while you have cops and gangs after you. While your homie is driving, try to kill the driver of cars chasing you to get them off of your tail. When you make it to a destination, get out and stay close to your homie. This becomes very easy once you have upgraded your weapons, and especially if you are invincible and have infinite ammo.
|And Boom Goes the Dynamite (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Heli Assault.|
In this activity you have to defend one of your homies as they drive to set locations, this time while piloting a helicopter. Pay attention to your mini-map and kill every enemy that appears. You should us the mini-gun primarily, shooting rockets only when you are locked-on to an enemy.
|Fence Killa 2011 (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Mayhem.|
In this activity you have to rack up a certain amount of points by causing as much damage as possible. You will usually be given an RPG with infinite ammo, if not then infinite frag grenades, so spam that sucker to your heart’s content. Fences, trash cans, and other small items are your best friend - they don't give much money individually, but they increase your multiplier (and thus your money) insanely fast.
|Your Backseat Smells Funny (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Escort.|
Instances: 3 Escort, 3 Tiger Escort
There are two variations of this activity: either you're chauffeuring around a prostitute who is doing her job in the backseat or you're chauffeuring around an angry tiger. Either way your goal is to stay away from the pursuing news/animal control vans to avoid filling the Footage/Rage Meter, while slowly filling the Pleasure/Courage Meter.
|Double Dose of Pimping (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Snatch.|
In this activity your job is to drive around, pick up some prostitutes, and drive them to a select destination. 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 . Drive fast and use a four door car so you can recruit up to three at a time. The drop off point will be insanity, so just smash your way through. Once they are out of your car they are counted as collected, so get out of there.
|Porkchop Sandwiches (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Trail Blazing.|
Instances: 3 Trail Blazing, 3 Cyber Blazing
There are two variations of this activity: either you're driving an ignited ATV through the city or a motorcycle through a Tron-like tube. Either way the goal is to make it through all the checkpoints before time runs out. In the ATV, you get additional time for all the civilians and vehicles you hit, and on the chopper you get additional time for driving through the blue tanks. For trail blazing just go as fast as you can, and take advantage of nitrous in all vehicles if you have it. For Cyber Blazing just avoid the firewalls.
|Go Into the Light (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Guardian Angel.|
In this activity your job is to, yet again, defend your homie as they move to a set location. There are two parts: while your homie is driving, you are following in a chopper and you have to blow up all the pursuing vehicles. The angle sucks at times but this is still pretty simple, especially if you have homing rockets. Once your homie stops and gets out of the car you are sniping from a nearby building. If you’re having trouble sniping the targets, put 7-8 sniper bullets in their cars to quickly blow up their vehicle before they even get out.
|Tank You Very Much (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Tank Mayhem.|
Like normal Mayhem, the goal is to destroy absolutely everything, this time while in a tank. Fences, trash cans, and other small items are still the great for increasing your multiplier, but your main priority here is the people or vehicles marked in red, which give a tonne of points. This is a very easy activity.
|Have A Reality Climax (20 points)|
|Complete all instances of Professor Genki's Super Ethical Reality Climax.|
In this activity, 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. This is a very simple activity once you are invincible as the only thing you have to worry about is the electricity slowing you down.
|Everything is Permitted (10 points)|
|Kill all of the hitman Assassination targets.|
To access the Assassination targets bring up your phone, click Saintsbook, and then Assassination. The game will lead you to a certain area where you have to perform a task in order for them to show up. There are 36 targets.
For these targets, you will want what is required before heading to the destination.
|Hi-Jack It (10 points)|
|Steal and deliver all Vehicle Theft targets.|
To access the Vehicle Theft missions bring up your phone, 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. This is very easy to do if you use notoriety wipe (or mayor's forgiveness) after getting in the vehicle. It is really only needed for the slower vehicles, but if you want to use it for all then you can do so easily by saving, quitting, and restarting the game and they will be available again without having to wait.

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.

You cannot repeatedly taunt the same gang members so you need to keep finding different ones.

Brutes are the enemies that look like the character Oleg. There are four different types of Brutes: Flamethrower Brutes, Grenade launcher Brutes, the mini-gun Brute, and the regular melee Brute.

The gang will start sending in Brutes and can't touch you since you're in a hover jet. Continue shooting them for the achievement and they'll keep showing up.

This can be done at any pool of water in any Apocalypse Genki instance, but I recommend the one on the west island.
