Drive-by is a Minigame Diversion in Saints Row 2.

For the unreleased game, see Saints Row: Drive By

Overview[]

Drive-by - level 2 - 10 killed.png

After killing 2 gang members from a car within a short period of time, a prompt appears to start the Drive-by Diversion. Shooting Civilians and law enforcement does not trigger this diversion, but shooting Pimps or Saints gang members does, which can be used to trigger this diversion after finishing the game.

In this diversion, specific groups of gang members must be killed with a weapon while in a car, leaving the car starts a 30-second countdown to get back into any vehicle.

After a certain time, remaining Gang Members in a group flee. Killing unmarked Gang Members, including fleeing Gang Members, does not count towards the total. Running over Gang Members, or killing them on foot, does not count towards the total.

As with all Diversions, there are 10 levels. Each level has an increasing number of Gang Members to kill, with 264 in total, across 34 groups. Each level gives a Gold, Silver or Bronze rating, depending on how many of the required Gang Members have been killed. To earn Gold, at least 238 Gang Members must be killed. This Diversion must be started over from the beginning if failed or exited.

After completing certain level, 1 unit of gang Notoriety is added. This may make Diversion harder as reinforcements constantly shoot and ram Playa's vehicle.

There are no unlockables or Achievements associated with this Diversion, although playing this diversion is a good way to earn 3 Gold Diversion stars in Gang Kills.

Ranks[]

After each level, a kill percentage and ranking are displayed.

  • >90% Gold - Contract Killer

  • >50% Bronze - Thug

Tips[]

Main Article: Tips
  • During this Diversion there is a help prompt about enabling Cruise Control.
  • Use Car Mechanic to upgrade vehicles with reinforced bumpers and frame and upgraded tire durability.
  • Forgive and Forget is unavailable during Diversion.
  • Tornado can be used in this Diversion.
  • After each successful level of Drive-by is completed, the currently used vehicle is healed a small amount and cure some of the damages. This means that if the previous vehicle has suffered a blown out tire, it gets fixed before the next round begins. The hitpoint increase accumulates even if the vehicle does not suffer any damages. This means that if the vehicle is kept intact for several levels, it can withstand an RPG round even though the original vehicle can't.

Trivia[]

  • The game data files indicate that some Hitman targets originally required a Drive-by kill.
  • After starting Drive-By in a Saint-controlled Hood, gang members spawn in that hood.
  • Any vehicle used in this diversion has increased mass, the same as "Car mass" cheat.
  • Thrown weapons are unavailable to use during diversion.
  • This diversion is an easy way to obtain weapons like K6 Krukov and RPG Launcher in the beginning of the game.
