File:UI act drug.png

In this activity, you join a drug dealer in dealing drugs, and protect him from gangs who want to kill the dealer.

At the start of the activity you are riding in the passenger side of the car, the vehicle is driven by the drug dealer. His health is displayed in the HUD as is the number of customer needed to visited in the level, when driving you are to protect the drug dealer from attacking gang members and police officers.

You are given a weapon with limited ammo to do this, but it changes after the entire level is complete, it may not always be the strongest weapons at times but mostly occurring as a Pistol or a SMG. After keeping the drug dealer safe, you go to a safe point and you are rewarded.

Saints Row: The Third

In Saints Row: The Third, drugs are replaced with Saints merchandise[1] and hooker catalogues[2], but the gameplay is the same as in previous games.

A KA-1 Kobra with unlimited ammo is provided during this activity.

Zimos' Trafficking activity mission is named "Ho Traffic". Because Trafficking appears as part of Morningstar mission arcs, the enemies are always the Morningstar.

There is a glitch in Saints Row 2 which allows to have any SMG/shotgun with infinite ammo. Do the following:

  1. Get any SMG/shotgun with infinite ammo from the Weapons Cache.
  2. Start activity.
  3. Wait for any gang member to exit their vehicle and kill them.
  4. If a gang member dropped other SMG/shotgun (e.g. you have GAL 43 with infinite ammo and an enemy has dropped T3K Urban), pick it up.
  5. After this, you should have the weapon equipped from Weapons Cache with infinite ammo.

Note 1: activities which unlock infinite ammo for SMGs and shotguns (Downtown Snatch and/or Airport Drug Trafficking) must be completed in order to get infinite ammo.

Note 2: if you pick up same SMG, it will be just dual wielded and you will not get infinite ammo.

Saints Row: The Third


Dealer: Pierce.
Dealer: Zimos.


  • When being chased by an enemy gang don't kill them straight away, this will make the driver drive faster making you get to your destination faster.
  • If the vehicle explodes, any other vehicles can be used.
  • In Saints Row 2, you can also call for your own vehicle if you have unlocked the Stored Vehicle Delivery reward via the Red Light District Escort diversion. The Bear is a good choice.
  • In Saints Row: The Third a tank can be used instead of the Bear. Park one near the starting location and switch to it after starting the activity. Tanks are pretty wide and the driver may get stuck at some places, but this is usually fixable by leaving and re-entering the tank or letting a Brute push the tank around. Challenger tanks tend to get stuck less then Crusaders.
  • You may also call for aid from Homies you have unlocked.


  • After exiting the activity in Saints Row, The Protagonist will be in the drug dealer's vehicle and the drug dealer might be in the vehicle and get out, but they cannot be killed.
  • There's a bug in Saints Row: The Third where the Justice disappears and the activity automatically fails.


  • "YOU STUPID, FUCKING, BACKSTABBING, PIECE OF SHIT!" Tobias kills Billy in the Billy's Retirement Party cutscene.
