"Got Dust, Will Travel" is the first mission of the Sons of Samedi story arc in Saints Row 2.

University drug deal goes bad
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


Shaundi informs The Protagonist on Loa Dust, a new drug that the Sons of Samedi have been producing very cheaply and pushing around the Stilwater University campus. The Protagonist heads there to kill some dealers and steal their Loa Dust in the hopes that the 3rd Street Saints can make it, sell it for cheaper, and steal the Sons of Samedi's market.[1]

The Protagonist successfully manages to steal three samples of Loa Dust, as well as chasing down and killing Mark Gabby, a highly successful dealer who brought in a lot of money for the Sons of Samedi.

Inside a Sons of Samedi Hounfor, The General and Mr. Sunshine talk with Veteran Child about the lack of income that day. Veteran Child informs The General that he could not get in touch with a few of his dealers, but assures them both that it's no problem and that he has a hold of the situation.[2]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

Campus officials are still trying to sort out exactly what took place today after a deadly shootout near the student union. It is presumed that members of the Sons of Samedi were on campus pushing their designer drug "Loa Dust" before being assaulted by the Third Street Saints. However, officials say no Loa Dust has been found, leading many to believe the Saints procured it for themselves before vanishing.

Pick up the Loa Dust

The last dealer drops some Loa Dust which must be picked up before going to the next location.

Find Mr. Gabby

After picking up two stashes, Shaundi calls on the Cellphone and advises The Protagonist about Mark Gabby.

Kill Mr. Gabby

After the call ends, it may take a few seconds for the Map to find him and draw up a GPS route towards him. Either shoot his vehicle (a Wellington) until it explodes or pull up in front of the vehicle and kill the driver, forcing the other occupants of the vehicle out.

Pick up the Loa Dust

If the vehicle is destroyed, the Loa Dust often drops underneath the wreckage of the vehicle, so either use explosives or ram the vehicle out of the way to pick the final stash up.

If Gabby is not killed, he arrives to a location south of University Loft and get out of his vehicle along with other 2 Samedi members and can be killed on foot or run over.

Meet Shaundi

Once Gabby is dead, simply drive to the marked location to finish the mission.

Newspaper ss01 Got Dust, Will Travel

The Stilwater Gazette newspaper clipping from the completion screen and Newspaper Clipboard

  • This is the only mission in which the character Mark Gabby appears. Gabby is the only named minor character that only appears in one mission in Saints Row 2 and also the only member of The Sons of Samedi whose real name is given.
  • There is sometimes a delay after the objective changes to "Find Mr. Gabby" for the Map to update the GPS route towards him.
  • Should Gabby's Wellington explode and his stash of Loa Dust end up beneath the flaming wreckage of his vehicle, the best strategy is to use another vehicle and ram it into the Wellington, thereby moving it away from the stash so one can get out and pick it up.
  • Halberd and Capshaw are always parked on the parking lot dealers' location.
  • Mark Gabby spawns after the mission is started and can be killed before picking up 2 Loa Dust samples. If this happens after second sample is picked up, the mission becomes impossible to complete.
    • If Gabby's Wellington is destroyed before picking up second Loa Dust sample, Gabby and 2 other Samedi members spawn on foot, making the mission easier.
  • Papa Shango is a WWF character.


"Pipes Are For Suckers" cutsceneEdit

Shaundi: "Hey, I got you a present..."
The Protagonist: "A light bulb, just what I always wanted..."
Shaundi: "Come on, you think I'd just give you a light bulb?"
The Protagonist: "A face shredder, just what I always wanted..."
Shaundi: "Smoke this."
The Protagonist: "Ever hear of a pipe?"
Shaundi: "Pipes cost that can be used for drugs or shoes."
The Protagonist: "It's good...what is it?"
The Protagonist (Male 2): "What is it?"
Shaundi: "It's the Sons of Samedi's number one product, they call it Loa Dust."
The Protagonist: "But you smoke it."
Shaundi: "They suck at marketing, what can I say? The point is that this shit is all over campus...I mean, frat's are buyin' it by the pound. If we get enough of the stuff we might find out how to make it ourselves."
The Protagonist: "And then we sell it for cheaper and steal their market."
Shaundi: "Exactly."
The Protagonist: "How much stuff we talkin'?"
Shaundi: "I dunno, 3 pounds? Two for science, one for the weekend?"
The Protagonist: "I can live with that."

"General's Orders" cutsceneEdit

The General: "Gentlemen, how was business today?"
Veteran Child: "Here's today's take..."
The General: "There are many singles where 50's[sic] should be..."
Veteran Child: "Yeah, about that...I couldn't get a hold of some of my guys..."
The General: "These men steal from The General?"
Veteran Child: "No, I'm not sayin' they're stealin'..."
Veteran Child: "Yo, Papa Shango, I'm talkin' to The General."
Veteran Child: "Man, fuck off."
Mr. Sunshine: "On the streets you may be a popular DJ, Veteran Child...but when you're in this car you'd do well to remember your place."
Veteran Child: "My place?"
The General: "My friends, please, be civil. Veteran Child...look into the matter of the missing money...if one of your bag boys is indeed alive, take one of his hands...I doubt he will be late again. If he is not alive, I think we have a greater problem."
Veteran Child: "You want me to cut off some dude's hand?"
The General: "If he stole from me, he needs to learn."
Veteran Child: "Yeah, that makes, um...sense."
Mr. Sunshine: "Is there a problem?"
Veteran Child: "No! I mean, it's no problem, I got this..."
