"Laundry Day" is the second mission of the The Ronin story arc in Saints Row 2.

Money laundering scheme uncovered
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


At Aisha's house, The Protagonist, Pierce, and Johnny Gat decide that, after the heist they pulled at The Ronin-controlled Poseidon's Palace, they should clean the money.[1]

The Protagonist successfully launders the money through a fence. On the phone to his father, Shogo Akuji learns that he is coming to America due to the shame Shogo has brought upon his family. Shogo orders Jyunichi to attack the 3rd Street Saints, believing The Ronin must defeat them before his father arrives.[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.

The Third Street Saints and the Ronin cut a swath of destruction downtown today. Preliminary investigations suggest that the Ronin caught the Saints in the midst of trying to launder money recently stolen from Poseidon's Palace. Chief Troy Bradshaw had no comment on the situation brewing between the Ronin and Saints.


Laundry Day - firing at pursuers

Gameplay from the mission.

Head to the used car salesman and buy an expensive car

Head to Elysian Fields trailer park and purchase the Eiswolf.

Take the car you bought

Get into the Eiswolf

Head to the arms dealer and buy an expensive gun

Head to the arms dealer to buy an AR-50 w/Grenade Launcher.

Go to the fence and re-sell the merchandise

Head towards the fence in order to sell the stuff back.

Protect the fence

The fence needs to travel to her stash in southern Stilwater and must be defended with the AR-50 w/Grenade Launcher as she drives the Eiswolf. The weapon can fire both rifle ammunition and grenades, and has unlimited ammo for both.

Generally, The Ronin put up a light defense in the north of Stilwater, but shortly after crossing the bridge and going past a dip, they step up their assault, and may badly damage the Eiswolf by the end of the mission.

Newspaper rn02 Laundry Day

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

  • During the "leaked security footage" in the opening cutscene, "15 Minutes", The Protagonist is wearing the clothing and customization they are in in the mission, rather than what they wore during "Saint's Seven".
    • Furthermore, Pierce is depicted as fighting, and stealing cash, alongside The Protagonist and Johnny Gat, despite him not taking part in the actual heist.
  • The game data files define additional parts to this mission; originally, there was also a second arms dealer, a female who drove a Bulldog and sold Grenades; as well as a clothing dealer who sells a "parachute suit" which The Protagonist would wear until selling it to the fence.
  • The Eiswolf is immovable before purchasing it - this is because it is defined as having an "infinite" mass by the game files.
  • In the opening cutscene, Jane says "the Saints are back after a long haitus". This means Jane hasn't heard of any of the other activity the Saints have caused, such as if completing any Sons of Samedi and/or Brotherhood missions first.
  • In the "15 minutes" cutscene, while Jane Valderama is interviewing Troy, two cops in the background prop up the body of a dead cop while another cop takes a picture of it.

Jane Valderamma: "Can you say anything about the Third Street Saint's involvement?"
Troy Bradshaw: "I don't know what you're talkin' ab-"
Jane Valderamma: "This leaked security footage shows the leader of the Saints, recent fugitive and Saint Lieutenant Johnny Gat, as well as an unknown accomplice assaulting the casino...obviously the Third Street Saints are back after a long hiatus."

Aisha: "Oh God..."
Pierce: "Unknown accomplice my ass!"
Troy Bradshaw: "Miss Valdera-"
Jane Valderamma: "Also, reports claim that Ultor is pressing the Police Department for a quicker response."
