  • no multiplayer achievements ?? thank you now im definitely will try to 100% it :) !!!
  • lol at Cee Lo Green song reference XD
  • #2 I was thinking that
  • wonder how many sections the map is split up into. maybe similar to sr 2 but definitely bigger
  • #2 & #3. Yeah, because it wasn't a movie, book or common phrase before then.
  • #5: But, it's a very recent and popular one. I kind of understand people wanting other media and older versions of stuff to be noticed (like people talking about the free falling reference), but you also have to realize that you'll probably see MORE newer things in media now than the older things. The older things are still shown, but newer things get more attention. So, if Cee-Lo's song is the first thing people think of, you can't get mad. It's fresh in the mind because it's more recent. I don't mind people saying "Oh! It reminded me of [older thing here]," but I hate it when people are annoyed and sarcastic because the other people remember something they heard yesterday rather than something 2 months ago, or even years ago. But, I was actually swaying to the song in my head af
  • *after reading the achievement title
  • Sad thing is i cant get this acievement because parts of the city is either glitched/bugged/or just wont let you do the stuff you need to do
  • In case people are having problems with this, thought it might be worth me mentioning there is a gang operation on the centre island that is on top of one of the buildings. This caught me out at first and it might save someone a bit of time.
  • My advice to you is to just buy all the property and do all of the activities available, then whatever areas are not purple on the map you know theres a gang operation there . Then Boom There goes the aachievement.
  • Okay beat the game today all achievements but the island take overs i have the top left but the other refuse to give me the achievement. I have done everything even the challenges, gang take overs and yeah everything i haven't used cheats it was all done legit, so im guessing it's just buggy and would love if anyone could tell me if they will patch this so they will pop up one day or do i have to start the whole game again just for 4 achievements?
  • does city takeover mean completeing all activities, and gang operations in a certain area. Or do u also have to buy all cribs and shops??
  • i think you probably have to get 100% control in the areas as well. still workin on it, i transferred the memory from my old hard drive to my new one and overwrote all my saints row stuff so im back from scratch :/
  • I personally think they should have just added the Collectibles to count in here, as well as the Stunt Jumps and the Barnstorming. Stunt Jumps and Barnstorming don't serve much else other than a small bit of cash and respect, both of which can be gained much faster and easier than doing them. Collectibles should be part of it as well.
  • Ive done everything and have 100% on the game, but i dont have the achievements for each individual activity, even though ive done every instance of each activity, why not?
  • Several of my gang activities are glitched. Have to start all over I have everything and there's nothing new on my map. Fantastic.
  • tbh i didn't really enjoy playing this game. Maybe it's because i got Skyrim a couple of days before and never really gave this game a fair chance to impress me.
  • i only need to do 3 activities 2 insurance fraud on hard and 1 trial blazing on hard but i cant't complete them :(
  • i liked that there wasn't multiplayer in this game, i felt it ruined sr2 by having too many multiplayer achievements
  • this was a lot easier than it sounded
  • Only had trouble with two activities,helicopter and escort they were the worst but specifically the escort mission by the air port and the helli in slander.
  • can you just buy the upgrade that insta-completes all city takeover activities to unlock this?
  • #22, you can, but you only get so many insta-completes.
  • I just did this while completely ignoring how much effort it took. I ignored it because my friend and I were having a gamerscore battle in this game. (I'm winning, 1150G to 1100G =D)
  • #5 I was actually thinking of Rocket by Def Leppard
  • Took me a while...NOTICE: If you see any "blank" spots on the map after finding ALL the gang operations, and you still have some activities, make sure you do those activities, and you may unlock some of the same instances of said-activity!! This was a VERY frustrating achievement to get, but near the end, I was getting 2-3 achievements for every time I controlled a "Whole City" because I did my activities last! :)) THANK GOODNESS IT'S FINALLY OVER! And good luck to all of you as well, hope my advice helped a bit! (P.s. I'm still going for co-op achievements on SR2 if anyone is interested, Message me on Xbox. GT: Vigilantl3oi ) I'm on SR3 or some other game...All...the....time...!
  • just buy stuff as you go along then pull out a vtol and go do all the gang operations took me an hour to do everything tops.
  • Anyone know if co-op breaks the gang hideouts achievements? as well as this one... Because there are times, we end up splitting up and he will run into a gang activity and kill all the gangs members before I can arrive.. So I don't get the msg saying Gang Activity complete, but it does go up +1 in the map screen, when I check to see how many are left. It makes me wonder if I really got credit for it though as I didn't see the typical on screen msg, saying the said area was complete.
  • Can be a problem finding undiscovered Gang Operations if you cleared all the ones found but others are still missing. Use a numbered Gang Op location map from Google Images and take note which you've done whilst playing through. If not, you'll have to fly to each location - handy if you have the little flying hoverbike thing - great for hidden items too as you don't need to get off it to collect them.
