Streaking is a Diversion in Saints Row 2, Saints Row: The Third[1][2] and Saints Row IV.
Flashing is a Diversion in Saints Row 2.


Overview[edit | edit source]

Streaking and Flashing are two very similar Diversions, in which there is a time limit to shock a number of Civilians with nudity. There are 8 levels in both Flashing and Streaking. The main difference between them is that Playa is nude while Streaking, but must wear a coat while Flashing.

Comments from Civilians vary depending on whether Playa is male or female. Some Civilians, gang members and law enforcement, may pursue and attack. The same person cannot be shocked twice.

Unlike other Diversions, there is no prompt. These Diversions are started by pressing down twice, the same as exiting missions and activities.

Streaking[edit | edit source]

To enable Streaking, Playa must be effectively nude, wearing no clothing on the torso or abdomen, so that both privacy bars appear on a female.

To remove all clothing, first access the Wardrobe, either in a crib or via Clothing Stores. On the "outfits" tab, choose "Remove All Current Clothing". After all other clothing has been removed, Hats, Masks, Glasses, Gloves, Footwear and Jewelry can be worn.

While Streaking Playa only needs to run in front of a civilian, no extra buttons need to be pressed.

Flashing[edit | edit source]

Flashing is only included in Saints Row 2.

To enable Flashing, Playa must buy the Flasher Coat, which costs $300 from Let's Pretend.

While Flashing, the Action button must be pressed to open Playa's coat while facing the civilian, who must also be facing Playa in order to be counted.

Reward[edit | edit source]

In Saints Row 2, there are no Achievements or Unlockable rewards for Streaking and/or Flashing. In addition they are not required for 100% Completion.

In Saints Row: The Third, streaking for 600 seconds completes a Challenge, which earns $5001, and one point of Respect, as well as the "You're My Hero!" Achievement, but there are no unlockables.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • While naked, Playa's facial expression changes to a smirk in Saints Row 2. In Saints Row: The Third and Saints Row IV their expression does not change but Playa trembles and tries to cover themselves when not moving.
  • It is best to start these Diversions in a crowded area.
  • The fastest and easiest way to complete either Diversion is to run in front of passing cars.
  • Civilians randomly Streak in Saints Row 2.
  • Apprehending a streaker is an objective in level 1 of FUZZ.
  • In Saints Row 2, pixelation can be removed by opening the "shaders_pc" or "shaders_xbox" file in the Saints Row directory and deleting the line containing "sr2-pixelate_c.fxo_pc". On PC, Playa looks like a doll, but on Xbox 360, the character model has clearly defined nipples.
  • In Saints Row 2 on PlayStation 3, the censor bar does not show up when looking through glass textures in Rounds Square Shopping Center. This glass texture is different on Playstation 3, so this does not occur on PC or Xbox 360. This does not occur with the glass textures on the elevated walkway in the Saint's Row District.
  • In Saints Row: The Third, pixelation can be removed by editing customization_items.xtbl to change <disabled>no</disabled> to <disabled>yes</disabled> in the <Wear_Option> section of the <Name>privacy bar top</Name> and <Name>privacy bar bottom</Name> entries.
  • In Saints Row 2, Playa has to be streaking or flashing to get comments from pedestrians, but in Saints Row: The Third, Playa just has to be naked to get comments, but does not get credit for shocks unless the Diversion has been started.
  • In Saints Row 2, female Saints, including Shaundi, tilt their heads downwards when recruited while Streaking.
  • In Saints Row IV, the animation for streaking has been tweaked so that female Playas cover both censored areas, though all other features remain the same.
