Ui act question

Not to be confused with Mayhem

The [objective] of Mayhem is to cause as much monetary destruction as possible in a set time limit. We thought that was fun, and then we decided to go ahead and add a tank.
— Drew Holmes[1]


Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

The objective of Tank Mayhem is to drive a Challenger and cause mayhem to earn a specified amount of money before time runs out.[1]

Tank Mayhem is completely separate from Mayhem, which is also present in Saints Row: The Third.

It's similar to Saints Row: The Third Tank Mayhem, but Challenger is changed to the alien tank Destructor.

The key to winning tank mayhem is to keep shooting with the constant firing gun to rack up combo. The combo acts as a multiplicator. To increase combo, shoot targets like fences (both mesh and wood work), news stands near storefronts, and groups of pedestrians (use the main gun if they are clustered together). Then shoot more expensive things like cars.

Tank Mayhem becomes available immediately after The Fundamentals, along with Mayhem and UFO Mayhem.
