OverviewEdit

Burt Reynolds is the Mayor of Steelport. He makes his first appearance in the mission "Zombie Attack".

Burt Reynolds deploys Playa to eradicate the zombie outbreak in Steelport that, unbeknownst to him, Playa caused.[6] To quell the threat, Playa destroys three containers of toxic material that creates the zombies.[5] If Playa then chooses to destroy the final container, Burt Reynolds becomes a homie and provides the Saints the support of the Steelport SWAT teams. Regardless of mission choice, Notoriety Wipe - Law, AKA "Mayor's Favor", is unlocked in the cellphone.

If Playa chooses to kill Killbane and sacrifice Shaundi and Viola,[7] Burt Reynolds, being tied up on the monument alongside them dies and Playa declares Steelport a city-state under the control of the Saints and appoints Pierce as its new mayor. However, if Playa chooses to save Shaundi, Viola, and Reynolds, Mayor Reynolds survives.

OfficeEdit

In the opening cutscene for "Zombie Attack", Playa meets Burt in his office. This office is not normally accessible outside of this cutscene, and is not part of any building.

The actual location of this room is floating in the sky above a road in Loren Square.[8]

TriviaEdit

  • Burt is not equipped with a weapon as a Homie, and does not pick one up off the ground, instead fighting with his bare fists.
    • Unlike Zombie Gat, who also doesn't use weapons, Burt's attacks lack the one-hit-kill effect.
    • The game data files[9] defines Burt as only using "knuckles", and does not define him as having the ability to pick up weapons, but he sometimes does.[10]
    • One way to give Burt a weapon is to have him enter a rear of a Condor as the second Homie, while someone is already in the gunner seat. Whenever anyone exits a Condor from the rear they are equipped with a K-8 Krukov or other Rifle, including Burt Reynolds.
    • Volition have stated that Burt not using weapons was a requirement.[11]
  • Burt constantly perform takedown attacks on his targets as a homie, due to his lack of weapons.
  • He drives a custom black Phoenix when called as a Homie. This vehicle is a look-alike to Burt's custom "Bandit One" from his role in the film trilogy "Smokey and the Bandit". This vehicle cannot be customized normally.
  • Playa is a fan of Burt Reynolds.[5]
  • When using the Zombie voice, Playa says the line "Burt-fucking-Reynolds!" much clearer than they normally speak.
  • When Playa meets Burt Reynolds, neither Viola nor Oleg knew about the zombie invasion on Arapice Island, yet they both have known Reynolds for some time.
  • Although he dies as part of the "Kill Killbane" ending, his Notoriety wipe entry in the cellphone still works.
  • Although he dies as part of the "Kill Killbane" ending, Burt Reynolds can still be Phoned as a Homie, but the "Save Shaundi" ending must also be completed for him to become available again, and this also applies for Shaundi and Viola.
  • Although he dies as part of the "Kill Killbane" ending, he still has Assassination diversions.
  • In the game he has a Southern appearance due to having starred in many Southern based films, but in real life, despite being born in Waycross, Georgia, he comes from Lansing, the capital of the northern state of Michigan.
  • From Viola, Playa learns that at one point, Phillipe Loren had also been associated with Burt Reynolds. When the two are fighting against the zombies on Arapice Island, Playa asks Viola whether Phillipe had ever considered running for mayor. Viola explains that the job involved too much politics, and that Phillipe figured he wouldn't stand a chance against Burt in a mayoral election campaign.[5]
  • The game data files refer to him as "Mayor Tate". Burt Reynolds has never played a character named "Tate", so this reference is unrelated to him.
  • Neither Burt nor Viola appear in the end cutscene of "Three Way" after they have been saved.
  • In Saints Row IV, Kinzie mentions that Burt had worked before with MI6 Agent Asha Odekar.[12]
  • Burt exists in the Saints Row IV files and it is possible to modify the game files to add him as a Homie.
  • Volition have stated that, for legal reasons, Burt Reynolds was not allowed to die as a Homie.[11] Despite this, it is possible to kill Burt Reynolds in game.[13]
  • Burt is featured under B in The ABCs of Saints Row.[14]
  • Burt Reynolds is fireproof.[15]

Angel: "It's been a long time, Reynolds."
Burt: "Do I know you?"
Angel: "Mexico, '96. Murderbrawl XIII."
Burt: "Oh. You look... different when you're not unconscious."

Homiechat Angel Burt

Josh: "Definitely a guest spot, at least, but I bet I could talk the producers into making you a series regular."
Burt: "No! What the hell is this Nyte Blayde?"
Josh: "Are you not familiar with the transmedia explosion that has taken the world by storm?"
