"Red Asphalt" is the fourth mission of the The Brotherhood story arc in Saints Row 2.

Prominent gang member found dead
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


Outside Club Koi, Jessica phones The Protagonist and sarcastically informs them that since The Protagonist gave Maero a "makeover"[1], she would return the favor regarding Carlos. She taunts The Protagonist and ends the call saying, "Do me a favor. When you're scraping up your buddy's face, just remember Maero gave you a chance to be his partner".[2]

The Protagonist immediately rushes to Donnie's and interrogates Donnie. After a brief fight, Donnie admits that he heard some of The Brotherhood were taking Carlos on "a ride around the docks". The Protagonist finds Carlos chained to the back of a Compensator and being dragged through the Docks & Warehouses district at high speeds. The Protagonist kills the drivers and stops the truck, but is too late to save Carlos, who is in severe pain. Rather than allowing him to succumb to his wounds, The Protagonist draws a gun and - after Carlos silently nods his head in agreement - performs a coup de grâce.[3]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

A member of the Third Street Saints was found dead today, the victim of a grisly gangland assassination. In a bloody recreation of the fate of Hector, Carlos Mendoza's body was dragged face down across Stilwater, until mercifully being shot in the head. While no arrests have been made in the killing, the police suspect the Brotherhood as the ones responsible for the vicious attack.

You can help by editing the page.

Beat up Donnie until he tells you where Carlos is

Gun down all The Brotherhood enemies and head inside through the left. Proceed to fight Donnie using melee - there are multiple Improvised Weapons around the office and he attempts to fight back. Do not shoot and kill him. After a few hits, Donnie reveals Carlos' fate.

Find the truck before Carlos dies

Grab a vehicle and head towards the Docks & Warehouses District.

Damage the truck and force it to stop

When the Compensator with Carlos chained to the back comes into view, proceed to pummel it with as much firepower as fast as possible - the longer this chase goes on, the more difficult it becomes. Avoid all other enemies and just concentrate on the Compensator; a Five-O usually joins in on the assault. After the Compensator is sufficiently damaged, its occupants bail out and the vehicle stops.


Exit the vehicle and head towards Carlos to end the mission.
