"Party Time" is the fifth mission in Saints Row: The Third.

see Achievements in Saints Row 2

Pierce: "Whatchu thinkin?"
Playa: "Some asshole is in my pool."
Pierce and Playa, before beginning the assault on the Morningstar-owned penthouse.


While looking for Phillipe Loren, Pierce finds a penthouse owned by the Morningstar and sees an opportunity to both strike at the gang and claim a new headquarters for the 3rd Street Saints, who have been using Shaundi's Loft since their arrival in Steelport.[2]

Playa skydives onto the penthouse and begins the attack on Morningstar. After learning the elevator code, they head to and unlock it, allowing Shaundi and a group of Saints to join the fray. Together, they clear out the remaining Morningstar reinforcements, but learn of a bomb that has been rigged to explode inside the penthouse. Playa chases a fleeing Morningstar lieutenant to a warehouse and forces him to reveal which wire to cut to disarm the bomb, and then relays that information to Shaundi.

With the penthouse now in the Saints' control, they have established a more appropriate headquarters in Steelport. At The Syndicate's boardroom, Matt Miller informs Killbane and Loren that the 3rd Street Saints may be a more legitimate threat than they first thought.


Go to the airport

After reaching the Wesley Cutter Intl airport, the scene changes to Pierce and Playa in an Eagle.

Parachute into penthouse[3]

Skydive from an Eagle into the penthouse as Kanye West's "Power" plays in the background.

It is not required to use the parachute, as Playa can dive-bomb straight from the Eagle to the pool and survive.

If Playa falls past the rooftop, before or after landing on it, a mission failure is triggered, with the message "You left the party".

Pierce's Eagle remains hovering over the party for the entire mission, above the altitude of the Reaper Drone, and cannot be destroyed.[4][5]

Grab lieutenant

Grab the lieutenant to learn the code to the elevator.

It is not possible to kill the lieutenant during this objective.

He can be knocked off the building with a weapon after leading him onto the helipad, leaving the mission in a stalemate since it cannot be completed, but does not trigger a mission failure.

Kill lieutenant

While simply executing him suffices, throwing him off the penthouse is a more satisfying way to finish him off. It is not possible to leave the first lieutenant alive after grabbing him. It is possible to trigger a non-lethal release of a Human Shield by falling a short distance, such as half-way up the stairs. However, after the lieutenant stands up, he immediately dies.

It is not possible to kill him until taking him as a Human Shield and the dialogue has played out. He doesn't have a weapon, so when alert is raised, he attacks Playa by constantly punching him.

Find the storage room

Go downstairs to the storage room.

There are marked grenades, which can be used to destroy the barrier, but this is not required.

Let in Saints

Press the elevator button to let in the Saints.

Guard the elevator

Hold the position until the Saints arrive. It is not required to stay in proximity of the elevator, and is possible to go straight back upstairs.

Clear out Morningstar

Once they arrive, head back upstairs and clear out abny remaining enemies - they are all marked on the HUD. Don't worry about killing fellow Saints if they are taken as a Human Shield.

Morningstar reinforcements arrive by elevator multiple times, as well as via an Oppressor which lands outside. When the Oppressor arrives, 4 Saints spawn upstairs. Standing in the elevator blocks more Morningstar reinforcements from arriving, but the objective remains active.

When all Morningstar are dead, Shaundi notes that a bomb has been rigged to blow.

Get to a helicopter

Shaundi notices a Morningstar lieutenant fleeing in an Oppressor, and Playa assumes he knows how to disarm the bomb.

The lieutenant's Oppressor appears out of nowhere, and remains hovering outside the building until Playa goes outside, at which point Shaundi is automatically dismissed. Shaundi can be recruited again by going back inside, but automatically despawns above Sunset Park.

The Reaper Drone becomes usable once the lieutenant's Oppressor starts moving, but it cannot be destroyed. If the Reaper Drone is used the instant it becomes available, the lieutenant's Oppressor does not move, but spins in a circle.[6][7]

Follow the lieutenant

Follow as close as possible. He lands outside Kinzie's Warehouse.

Grab lieutenant

The lieutenant can be grabbed as soon as he exits his Oppressor. If he is not grabbed immediately, he enters Kinzie's Warehouse, where there are a number of Morningstar waiting - killing them is not required.

Kill lieutenant

After learning how to disarm the bomb, kill the lieutenant to end the mission.

It is not possible to kill him until taking him as a Human Shield and the dialogue has played out. If released, this lieutenant does not automatically die, and resumes running away. The lieutenant can be released without killing him by falling off stairs, or walking into the water.

There is no requirement to stay near the lieutenant. Both Oppressors can be piloted, and although Shaundi is no longer at the penthouse, Pierce's Eagle is still hovering above it, so long as the mission has not be resumed from a checkpoint.[8][9]


The mission can be failed by missing the roof, jumping off the roof at any point,[10] or by letting the lieutenant escape.[11] Destroying the Oppressor does not fail the mission, but ultimately results in the lieutenant escaping.[12]

Jane Valderamma: "Parties with the rich and famous usually involve expensive champagne, recreational drugs, and numerous hookers. Now, gunfights can be added to that list. Shots were fired in a downtown penthouse apartment resulting in several deaths and at least one noise complaint filed by a neighbor. The reason for the violence is unknown, however, some guests were seen fleeing the scene after a fight broke out. Among the attendees were several local and foreign businessmen, as well as a reported appearance from the Saints. This is Jane Valderamma with your Steelport Celebrity Crime Report."


  • This mission contains many references to the CG "Power" E3 2011 debut trailer.[13]
  • The song that plays during this mission is Kanye West's "Power". It can also be heard on 95.4 KRhyme FM.
  • The code for the freight elevator, 3-1-3-1, is the same code for the elevator to Benjamin King's penthouse in the mission "All the King's Men" in Saints Row.[14]
  • Throwing Morningstar gang members off the building earns easy Respect.
  • The cutting of the red wire is a reference to depictions of disarming a bomb in popular media.
  • This mission was first revealed in the pre-release Destructoid livestream.[15]
  • It is possible to complete this mission without Playa killing anybody. Although killing each lieutenant is a mission objective, both of them can be killed by enemy fire. The first lieutenant becomes a marked enemy when released, but immediately drops dead.
  • Enemies on the roof of Kinzie's Warehouse use Annihilators, which can be obtained and kept.[16]
  • The Oppressor used in this mission is despawned after completion and does not remain parked at outside Kinzie's Warehouse.
  • The post-unlock description for the Achievement "Opulence, You Has It" inaccurately describes the Saints HQ as "their first crib in Steelport".
  • Playa's phone call to Shaundi asking if she has the place cleaned up is played due to a timer, and can occur before Playa has even entered the Oppressor.[17]
  • The elevator cannot be used during the mission.[18]
  • Pierce's line "it's owned by the Morningstar." is the first time the word "Morningstar" is used in the game. At no point is the word every shown on-screen or in dialogue before this. Despite never having heard the word "Morningstar" before, Playa responds as if he is familiar with the term.
