There are multiple co-op diversions which are not available in the single player game.

Cat & Mouse[]

Main Article: Cat & Mouse

The Cat & Mouse diversion can be started by one player killing the other. Once the diversion is started, one player will be in an attack vehicle, and the other in a normal vehicle.

The objective of the "Cat" is to kill the "Mouse", while the latter drives from checkpoint to checkpoint whilst staying alive. When the objective is completed then the two players will switch around and the diversion will restart.

There are 5 vehicle combinations.

While there was a "Cat & Mouse" promo image featuring the F-69 VTOL as the "cat" and the Specter as the "mouse" vehicle, this combination does not appear in game.

Whored Mode[]

Whored Mode is the spiritual successor to the Zombie Uprising minigame from Saints Row 2 and can be played in either single player or co-op mode. In this mode, the player needs to kill specific amount of enemies with different weapons, getting points.

  • The PC version has heavy sync issues during multiplayer, even on low-ping LAN connections. In extreme cases this can make Co-op mode virtually unplayable. Volition has confirmed the issue is caused by one client running at a lower framerate than another due to performance problems, as the game's network code assumes that both games run at roughly the same framerate. Volition has not announced any plans to address the issue.
