Three Way None

"STAG Film" is one of two final missions in Saints Row: The Third (the other being "Gangstas in Space"), and is available after "Three Way" if Killbane is killed.

I got a message for Monica Hughes and her stooges. Dear bitch: Steelport is under new management, and we don't answer to you. This is foreign soil now. Come at my city again, and you'll go home in a fucking box.
Playa publicly declares Steelport a city-state.


With Killbane dead, Playa gathers the remaining Saints at the Broken Shillelagh and delivers a eulogy for Shaundi. Before any more words can be said, the Daedalus, a massive flying aircraft carrier under STAG, arrives and starts to shell Steelport. Playa decides to destroy the floating ship and kill STAG's commander, Cyrus Temple.

After taking an aircraft upwards and destroying some of its main cannons, Playa lands on the Daedalus and sets four bombs in separate locations. After arming them, Playa has a climactic fight with Cyrus Temple in his VTOL; after defeating and killing him, Playa escapes the Daedalus as the bombs explode, destroying the aircraft carrier.

As Jane Valderamma presents the latest news, the Saints walk in and interrupt her; Playa announces to the camera that Steelport is now a city-state. They threaten Monica Hughes and "her stooges" that should they "come at [their] city again, [they'll] go home in a fucking box". As they walk off, Playa offers Pierce the job as mayor.

As the Saints then exit the building, ready to take control of Steelport, the credits roll and the game comes to an end, leaving the events to be continued in Saints Row IV, starting from "Zero Saints Thirty".


STAG Film - Kill Cyrus objective.png

Go to the Broken Shillelagh
Get a helicopter

There is a Vulture and a Tornado on the helipad of the Saints HQ. Or pick up a helicopter from any other place one spawns. Any aircraft parked outside the Broken Shillelagh before starting the mission can also be used.

Go to the Daedalus

Fly to the Daedalus.

Destroy the cannons

Once near the Daedalus, destroy the four cannons.

Land on the Daedalus

Land on the Daedalus. There are many opposing STAG, some of whom are armed with Annihilator RPGs.

Plant bomb

Planting bombs nearby.

Fly to rear deck

Enter the parked Condor and fly that to the rear deck.

Plant bomb

Plant the last two bombs.

Kill Cyrus

In the end of this final mission features a battle with Cyrus Temple as he flies around in his custom black VTOL in a set pattern. Pick up a Mini-Gun nearby and use that to inflict damage whenever he flies overhead or is exposed. STAG reinforcements spawn endlessly until Cyrus is killed. There are several stacks of crates nearby which can be used as cover.

Escape from the Daedalus

When Cyrus is killed, get inside the nearby F-69 VTOL and fly away. Attempting to jump off the edge and parachute results in mission failure.

After the final cutscene plays, the credits roll and the mission ends. If this was the first ending chosen, "Three Way" is available to replay to "save Shaundi" instead, which leads to the canonical (if non-sequitur) final mission, "Gangstas in Space".[1][2] Otherwise, the events of Saints Row continue in Saints Row IV, starting from "Zero Saints Thirty".



Main article: Newscasts
Jane Valderamma: "Long the subject of rumor, STAG has revealed their ultimate black budget project: the Daedalus. For a short time, the sky carrier was brutally efficient in destroying Steelport and slaughtering its citizens, but the Saints came to the defense of our city and reduced the behemoth to a twisted pile of smoking wreckage. In a special broadcast, the Saints leader has declared that Steelport is now its own country and ordered all remaining STAG units to leave. Pierce Washington will be overseeing the day-to-day operations. May god help the new city-state of Steelport. This is Jane Valderamma with your International Politics News."


  • The opening cinematic shows a black Saint in Deckers attire regardless of whether the Decker Gang Customization style has been selected or not.[4]
  • This is the only final mission in the Saints Row series which does not feature Johnny Gat, although he is mentioned.
  • Radio stations are unavailable during this mission.
  • After landing on the Daedalus a minimum height limit is placed on Playa. Falling or flying below this height fails the mission with text saying that Cyrus Temple was allowed to get away. This is useful, as it takes less time to restart on the carrier deck than it would to obtain another helicopter and get back up to it. This failure condition means the Sonic Boom is a very bad idea in co-op, as it can accidentally throw the co-op partner off the Daedalus.
  • Cyrus' VTOL's laser can go through parts of the Daedalus and some of the crates.
  • Cyrus' lines "After what you did on Magarac Island, I didn't have a choice, did I?" and "You can't lie your way out of this. I'm putting you down." imply that he is unaware of Kia's actions in "Three Way" and that she went rogue, or he may be keeping STAG's involvement a secret.
    • Kia herself does not appear during this mission, so it is unknown what happened to her following "Three Way".
  • The news ticker in the closing cutscene states: "[...] Memorial service for boy trampled to death by elephant to be held tomorrow...Saints Flow recalled after recent positive tests for HGH...Free cheeseburger day at Freckle Bitch's leaves 6 dead; [...]".
    • The news ticker in the opening cutscene for the earlier mission "Live! With Killbane" stated that a boy "[nagged] parents into purchasing adult elephant as pet".
  • There is no cash reward for completing this mission, but there is a $100,000 cash reward for completing "Gangstas in Space".
  • "Stag film" was a slang term for pornography in the early 20th century.
  • All aircraft can be destroyed before the "Fly to rear deck" objective, placing the mission in a stalemate.
