"Appointed Defender"

  • Eliminate crazed fans to earn money

Crowd Control is an Activity in Saints Row 2.

Protect a celebrity from crazed fans to earn cash and respect.
— Crowd Control introduction[5]


In this Activity, Playa must protect a celebrity from people attacking them, and make a specified amount of money within the time limit. Playa starts unarmed, and must rely on fists to waylay attackers, after the first wave, violent fans begin carrying melee weapons and then firearms. Attackers can be thrown into destructible scenery or special environment weapons to gain bonuses along the way, these vary with each location.

The earlier levels of this Activity don't produce "crazy" fans, with them just harassing (and on occasions throwing the odd punch or hitting the celebrity with a melee weapon; e.g. bat). Levels 4-6 provide more aggressive fans. Levels 5 and 6 produce fans with armed weaponry, including pistols and assault rifles.


  • Archibald Nice
  • Vinnie

Archibald Nice hires Playa to protect some of the celebrities he maganed from crazy fans, saying that gang members make better bodyguards.

Vinnie, the loan shark in Saints Row, has gotten out of the Loan Sharking business and gone into the porn industry, after his enforcers Mike and Dan went on to be professional poker players. He asks Playa, who is now leader of the revived 3rd Street Saints to protect his "talent" from their fans, "as porn fans are well, porn fans."


While fans can be killed by melee attacks, weapons, or by throwing them into normal objects, each setting contains at least one special object marked with a blue arrow which gives bonus points.

  • It is possible to exit out of this Activity using the Mission Exit Glitch and keep the bodyguard uniform.
  • The easiest way to drink more than 4 alcoholic drinks at once is through this Activity, because only 4 Food items can be held at once, and entering a store to buy more cancels any "drunkenness". After level 6, there should be plenty of 40. ozs on the ground. Pick up 4, drink them, then pick up more. Playa pukes, walks funny, and makes drunk comments about his lieutenants and other situations.



Archibald Nice: "Archibald Nice, damn pleasure to meet ya... siddown, siddown."
Playa: "What's this about?"
Archibald Nice: "What this is about is protection. Physical protection for my clients and financial protection for yourself."
Playa: "What do you me-"
Playa - Male 2: "What do you mean?"
Archibald Nice: "The entertainment industry and gangs go hand in hand...remember when those bikers worked security at Altamont? It worked out then, and this'll work out now. I got a lotta talent that's gettin' ready to walk the red carpet, and I wanna make sure no crazy fans hurt my investment. Let's not put anyone in bodybags here, but roughin' up a couple tweens is fine by me."
