Activities and Diversions in Saints Row: The Third Activities and Diversions in Saints Row: Gat out of Hell


All Activities and Target Diversions are tied to optional Side Quests groups.


All Activities award Cache, XP, and a territory for City Takeover on completion. Activities can be replayed to earn more money and better medals, but XP is only awarded once.

Many activities are optional, but an easy instance of Blazin, Platforming Rift, Prof. Genki's Mind Over Murder, and Fight Club are played as a part of the storyline and cannot be skipped.


Medals from Racing in Saints Row 2 return, and are now used by all activities. Each Activity has Bronze, Silver, and Gold threshold of score or time. Better medals award more Cache. All gold medals in all Activities are required for 100% Completion. Scoring less than Bronze counts as failing the activity, even in activities such as Platforming Rift and Speed Rift, which have a specific endpoint.

Upgrades are unlocked by completing all instances of an Activity with Silver or Gold medals. Mayhem activities are split into either "On-Foot Mayhem" or "Vehicular Mayhem"[1][2], and each type must be completed in order to unlock Upgrades.

All Activities are also associated with specific Challenges, which unlock an upgrade or Super Power upgrade.

The game lists 2 types of Diversions on the Map: Targets and Collectibles.

All Target diversions are started from a marker on the map, and award Cache, XP, and a territory on completion. Target diversions disappear from the map on completion and cannot be replayed. Collectibles are hidden around Virtual Steelport and unlocks various rewards when collected. Diversions not displayed on the map are more varied in rewards and the ways of starting them.

Most Diversions are available after The Fundamentals.
