"Return to Steelport" is a mission in Saints Row: The Third.

The barbarians are at the gate--we need a general not an ambassador!
Killbane, claiming his right as Phillipe Loren's successor as leader of The Syndicate.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Following Loren's death and the apparent end of The Syndicate,[1] the Saints return to Stilwater to have a funeral for Johnny Gat. The funeral procession is stalled in traffic due to the Hughes Memorial Bridge opening ceremony being unveiled by Monica Hughes in memory of her husband and the main antagonist of the first Saints Row, Richard Hughes. It is interrupted as the Luchadores pull a surprise attack on the Saints. The Saints attempt to escape, but Killbane and other Luchadores from afar send them into the water with Annihilator RPGs. There, the Saints discuss returning to Steelport to take down the rest of The Syndicate, with Oleg stating that he knows a couple of people who also hate The Syndicate and want to destroy it. Monica, angered over the sudden loss of her husband's bridge due to gang warfare, orders an emergency session at United States Congress, beginning the later formation of STAG.

The Saints look for a former FBI agent named Kinzie Kensington; they discover she is being held captive by the Deckers aboard a barge and free her.

After being freed, Kinzie sends Playa and Pierce to Safeword, a BDSM club, to find a pimp named Zimos. Pierce and Playa head over there and shake down a couple patrons and the manager to find out where they are hiding Zimos and then they go down in to the basement to free him. Zimos is tied up in front of a Pony Cart and the group need to hurry so they ride out of there on the rickshaw with Zimos as the horse.

When they lose the Morningstar chasing them, Playa and Pierce untie Zimos and go onto their next person of interest: Angel De LaMuerte, an old enemy of Killbane. Playa and Zimos head over to Angel's Gym and clear out the attacking Luchadores. Oleg arrives to help out. Together, Playa, Zimos, Oleg and Angel repel the attacking Luchadores and Brutes.

At an undisclosed Syndicate location, Killbane takes it upon himself to lead The Syndicate in Loren's place and orders Viola and Kiki DeWynter to do "Something. Anything!" before he wonders why he keeps "[those] bookends around". At the Saints HQ, Playa gives a rousing speech to the Saints, echoing the speeches made in "Reclamation" and "Three Kings", ending with the familiar "It's our time now. Let's get this shit started".

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Return to Steelport - Kill the Morningstar.png
This mission automatically starts after completing "The Belgian Problem". If exited, and started from the Cellphone, the Hughes Memorial Bridge cutscene automatically plays again.[2]

Get to the barge

Get in the nearby Miami and drive southward to the barge Kinzie's being held in. In true Saints Row-style, players are advised to accelerate to max speed and drive straight into the lowered rear of the barge, sending the Miami through the air and well over halfway into the barge.

With enough speed, it is possible to land all the way at the back of the barge, avoiding most of the fighting with the Deckers.

Find Kinzie

Disembark, kill any Deckers nearby, and get to the bridge.

Untie Kinzie

Untie Kinzie Kensington to complete the first third of this mission.

Get to the BDSM club

Now with just Pierce, drive to the nearby Safeword BDSM club.

Grab the patrons
Find the owner

Talk to some of the kinky patrons to learn where the owner of the establishment is.

Interrogate the owner

Kill the few Morningstar in the owner's room and, after interrogating him.

Find Zimos

Head to the "pony barn"/basement to find Zimos.

Kill the Morningstar

A short chase scene takes place as the player must stop three other Pony Carts with a K-8 Krukov with infinite ammo; killing the enemies on the Pony Carts is all well and good, but killing the "driver" causes the Pony Cart to explode.

Find Angel

The final part of the mission tasks Playa and Zimos with finding Angel De LaMuerte. Despite what Kinzie says on the phone, there is no rush to reach Angel.

Kill the Luchadores

Upon reaching Angel's Gym, Oleg joins the fray and the player must defeat a host of Luchadores outside the gym, including an unarmed Brute. Head inside the gym when prompted to meet Angel.

Protect Angel

In the finale, players must kill many enemies, including several Brutes. Thankfully, Pierce has rejoined the group. As well as not providing much in the way of adequate cover, this part of the mission is also hard because Angel has a habit of constantly dying; players should always be ready to revive him and should prioritize the Brutes over other enemies. By killing the first Brute fast enough, players can pick up his Mini-Gun and hopefully use it to kill the other two Incinerator-wielding Brutes by shooting their fuel packs before they close in on the player or kill Angel. At the least, be prepared for a few close encounters with death. The mission actually ends after all the Brutes are dead, rather than when all the marked enemies are dead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the only mission in Saints Row: The Third to feature all three of The Syndicate's gangs: the Deckers, the Morningstar, and the Luchadores.
  • Despite Oleg mentioning taking the Saints to people who hate The Syndicate in the plural, he only leads them to one person: Kinzie Kensington. The other two people introduced in this mission, Zimos and Angel De LaMuerte, are both located by Kinzie.
  • Inside the barge Kinzie is held up in, is a small poster of the Stilwater Sharks.
  • The Pony Cart is a vehicle exclusive to this mission.
  • After escaping the Morningstar on the Pony Cart with Zimos, Pierce stands idle and can be recruited. Regardless, he joins the fight at Angel's Gym and also appear in the final two cutscenes.
  • When first arriving to the fight outside Angel's Gym, Angel is outside the gym shooting at Luchadores with an AR-55. The cutscene does not start until going inside.
  • Oleg does not join the fight outside Angel's Gym until the Brute and a certain number of Luchadores have been defeated.
  • There is a Bootlegger parked outside the Angel's Gym that cannot be entered nor damaged, indicating that this is Angel's car, although he drives a Saints Atlantica when called as a Homie.
  • Playa's line, "It's our time now--let's get this shit started.", is used by Julius in Saints Row[3] and Playa in Saints Row 2.[4]
  • The opening of the mission is the third time a funeral has been interrupted; the first being Marshall Winslow's funeral, which was disrupted by the Saints in "Hail to the Chief" in Saints Row and the second being Aisha's in Saints Row 2 which was crashed by The Ronin during Rest in Peace.
  • Temporary Weapons picked up during this mission remain equipped upon completion.
  • Civilians in Saints Row IV mention the bridge explosion in idle dialogue.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

Cutscene #1[edit | edit source]

Monica: "When I left Stilwater for the Senate, I vowed not to forget my hometown roots. My husband gave his life defending Stilwater from gang violence. It is my greatest privilege to honor him with this bridge."
Killbane: "Time for the high spot, boys."
Shaundi (subtitle): "Who the hell are these guys?"
Shaundi (audio): "Who are these guys?"
Pierce: "Whoever this crew is, they float pretty damn good."
Oleg: "They're Killbane's thugs."
Playa: "Kill-who?"
Oleg: "He's the Syndicate's attack dog."
Shaundi: "What he did to Johnny's funeral... that's over the fucking limit."
Oleg: "He doesn't care about rules of engagement."
Playa: "No rules? I can work with that."
Oleg: "You're not ready to fight the Syndicate."
Shaundi: "Watch us."
Playa: "Just relax, Shaundi. Alright big man, what do you got?"
Oleg: "There are others who hate the Syndicate as much as you do. I will take you to them."
Monica: "Can you believe this? On my husband's bridge! No, no, I will not calm down. I'm heading back to the Hill. Book an emergency session. Goddamn it--this is war!"

Cutscene #6[edit | edit source]

Killbane is addressing Matt Miller and the DeWynter sisters in the back room of the 3 Count Casino
Killbane: "Well, ladies and gentleman, Phillipe is dead and we are at a crossroads. And the question is: who will lead The Syndicate to a new era."
Matt: "Viola and Kiki were Mr. Loren's right hands. Shouldn't they be the ones who-"
Killbane strikes Matt with a chair, knocking him out cold.
Killbane: "I had someone else in mind."
Viola: "Excuse me?"
The scene changes to the Saints HQ
Playa: "The Syndicate has to answer for what they did... and this time, we're taking the fight to them."
Playa: "Since we don't know Steelport I brought in some people who do. This is Kinzie, Zimos, and Angel.."
The scene changes to Killbane
Killbane: "The barbarians are at the gate--we need a general not an ambassador!"
Kiki: "Calm down, Eddie..."
Killbane: "What did you call me?"
Viola: "What'd you like us to do, Killbane?"
Killbane: "Something. Anything! Before I wonder why I keep you bookends around."
The scene changes to the Saints HQ
Playa: "Talk to one of these guys, they'll have things for you to do. It's our time now--let's get this shit started."

The Luchadores arrive

...and start shooting at the Saints

Monica Hughes barely avoids being run over
