Missions provide the narrative of Saints Row 2.


In Saints Row 2, Missions are divided into five sections. There is a 3rd Street Saints Prologue, followed by three concurrent gang arcs, with an Ultor Epilogue once all three gangs have been defeated.

In addition to the eleven missions in each Gang arc, each gang has four non-storyline Stronghold missions which silently become available after certain missions, and must be completed to unlock the final mission of each arc. Completing each Stronghold awards control of that neighborhood and some cash. Unlike Saints Row, the concept of Strongholds is not formally introduced.

The prologue and epilogue each consist of four missions and one Stronghold. There is also one extra mission "Revelation" that is not part of the prologue, epilogue or any gang arcs. Excluding DLC content there are forty-two missions and fourteen strongholds.

Mission Exit GlitchesEdit

There are glitches which allow exiting an activity, a mission, or a mission replay, without a "Mission Failed" screen, which allows some special vehicles and clothing to be obtained.

After using a Mission Exit Glitch, the game still believes the mission is active to some extent, so the game should be saved and reloaded afterwards to avoid problems. These glitches can be used to exit any mission, including Jailbreak.

These glitches also work with Activities, so can be used to keep the police uniform used in Fuzz, or the bouncer uniform in Crowd Control.

Fail + Pause

Trigger a mission failure, but before the fail screen appears, press the Menu or Map button repeatedly until the mission name disappears.

This is easiest to do when the mission timer running out, or due to a homie dying, but is also possible to do for anything that would trigger a mission failure, such as a mission-critical vehicle exploding.

Cancel + Pause

Press down twice to trigger the "Cancel Mission" prompt.[1] Repeatedly tap the Map button, and press the Menu Select button. If successful, the map will come up immediately, and the mission will have exited.
