FUZZ is an Activity in Saints Row 2.

Impersonate one of Stilwater's Finest and provide quality footage to the FUZZ crew for cash and respect.
— Fuzz introduction[imagerefs 1]


In-game, FUZZ is Stilwater's number one television show in which a cop uses all kinds of weapons to fight crime. It's a reality TV show with the motto: "every third act needs a Mini-Gun!".

In this activity, Playa is dressed as a police officer while being filmed for the FUZZ TV show.

Playa is tasked to be as brutal as possible whilst taking down criminals, rather than just blowing them away. Use an assortment of weapons, including Satchel Charges, Chainsaws, and Annihilator RPGs to take down drug dealers, sewage sprayers and pirate/ninja battles.

To win, the footage bar must be filled before the timer runs out. Bonuses are awarded for use of specified weapons, which are provided when needed.


Quinbecca, Suburbs Expansion district
Katie: "Thank you so much for coming in on short notice, you are a life saver."
Playa: "I'm still a little confused why I got a call from a casting director's assistant."
Katie: "Right, so here's the thing, after like 2 years of doing laundry for my boss, he finally allowed me to cast tonight's episode of Fuzz."
Playa: "Still confused..."
Katie: "Right, well, the officer that agreed to let us film them ended up getting sent to the hospital, so I kinda need a last minute replacement. I saw your mugshot on the news and you're a perfect match."
Playa: "So you want me to pretend to be a cop on national TV?"
Katie: "All you have to do is drive around and give us some good footage."
Playa: "Like "good footage" making arrests, or "good footage" knockin' a shirtless guy into a kiddie pool?"
Katie: "Miranda doesn't make for good tv..."
Playa: "Yeah, I can help."

Shivington, Projects district
Legal Lee: "Well hello there, you're just the person I was lookin' for..."
Playa: "What's up Lee?"
Legal Lee: "I got a couple of on going cases against the Stilwater PD, and I could use a little leverage."
Playa: "What kinda leverage?"
Legal Lee: "Well I figure if you got yourself on that cop show Fuzz, we could show the world a side of our police force that isn't exactly "prime time friendly"."
Playa: "I don't like the idea of takin' beatings for your clients."
Legal Lee: "Oh, you misunderstand me. I want you dressed as one of Stilwater's finest."
Playa: "And let me guess, there's gonna be a lot of people resisting arrest?"
Legal Lee: "Well what happens in the course of duty is up to you...far be it for me to tell an officer of the law how to beat an unarmed man with a blunt object, or how to discharge your weapon on someone who's trying to surrender."
Playa: "Thanks for not judging how I do my job."
Legal Lee: "Oh, I have nothing but respect for our men in uniform."

Saints Row 2[]

The FUZZ cameraman

  • The Camera object used by the FUZZ cameraman can be modded to be held as a weapon, as can all objects in the game.
  • FUZZ is normally spelled "FUZZ", but is spelled "Fuzz" on the map.
  • FUZZ is a parody of the real-life cop show COPS, which is also spelled in upper-case letters.
    • The jingle at the end of each level sounds similar to the COPS theme, based on the song "Bad Boys".
  • FUZZ is a slang term for police, like "The Heat", "Cops", "Five-0", or "Po-Po".
  • It is possible to exit out of this activity using a Mission Exit Glitch and keep the police uniform. After exiting the activity via the glitch, the game must be saved and reloaded before storing the uniform in the Wardrobe. Going directly to the Wardrobe makes the clothes disappear.
  • When Glitching out of the activity, it is not possible to keep weapons, or the Five-O
    • Weapons can be kept by using the Weapons Cache at Friendly Fire and switching to another weapon of the same class.
    • Vehicles spawned for FUZZ objectives, such as the Topher or Bear, can be kept by cancelling the activity after completing the objective which involves the vehicle.
  • In the game files, there is another deleted crime: "ACT_FUZZ_CRIME_ABORTION_RIOT - A riot has broken out at the abortion clinic"
  • If there is a real police officer nearby, they follow Playa like a recruited Homie, but they do not appear in the Homie HUD, and cannot be revived if killed. In Co-op play they can become a problem when they fill up the police car not allowing the co-op partner into the vehicle. However, they can be killed and pulled from the vehicle without penalty.
  • Although Playa is wearing the police uniform they still retain any glasses, piercings, chains, and/or belts that are equipped.
  • At level 3 and 4 are a group of skate-boarders, this may be a reference to the game "Jet Set Radio" which is famous for having police that do everything in their power to stop the player.
  • Due to Playa being dressed as police, Saints may become aggressive and attempt to kill the Cameraman or constantly ram the vehicle.
  • It is possible to complete this Activity by air, using Tornado. Its weapons are best choice for taking down enemies, combined with with Tornado's speed.
  • One of the "Stop violence" protester calls is an anti-Shaundi protest.[Reference needed]
  • For "battle of the century", the dispatcher says "Internet Me Mes are getting out of hand", instead of saying the word "memes".

Saints Row: The Third[]

  • FUZZ does not appear in Saints Row: The Third, but the game files for Survival reference the same "Cameraman".
  • In one Survival call, the caller says "The Saints would be ratings gold for FUZZ! Stir up trouble for the cops at our filming location, and we'll cut you a slice of the profit."
  • The description for the Challenges from Trix Vickers all mention FUZZ.
    • Carjack Vehicles: "Listen, sweetie, I'll be blunt. FUZZ needs crime footage badly, so sometimes you just have to give criminals a little nudge. 'Nudge, Nudge!'"
    • Drive in the Oncoming Lane: "You know, nothing gets people to tune in to FUZZ like a homicidal maniac behind the wheel. What do you say, can you be that homicidal maniac?"
    • Total Near Misses: "People don't tune in to FUZZ for riveting social drama"
    • Bail Out Distance: "Nothing juices FUZZ's ratings like big, crunchy, car crashes. Twisted metal and flying body parts tested well in all markets, so ... you know what you need to do, hmmm?"
