Weapons shipment hijacked
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


After Dane Vogel seized Maero's incoming weapons shipment[1], Playa is playing skee ball with Shaundi at an arcade. Following Playa's request[2], Shaundi's learned that Maero has been asking about the rescheduling of his shipment. Suspecting that there's a reason for the shipment's delay, Playa heads out to investigate.[3]

Sure enough, Playa locates the cargo ship to the southeast of Stilwater. After killing the Ultor security team on deck, Playa then uses the weapons that the shipment consists of to defend against incoming Brotherhood enemies, who have also arrived in an attempt to wrestle control of the shipment back from Ultor. After successfully holding off all waves of enemies, Playa calls Shaundi and asks her to get a crew together to transport all the weapons back to the Saints Hideout.[4]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the Mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

A cargo ship carrying heavy weapons for Ultor's security forces was hijacked earlier by the Third Street Saints, and officials aren't releasing any details as to how exactly it happened. The Saints commandeered the vessel shortly before it was scheduled to arrive in port, forcing a massive contingency of Ultor forces to attempt to retake it. Unfortunately for Ultor, the armaments on board the ship proved more than capable of holding off an assault, and the Saints escaped with the weapons in tow. Ultor's Dane Vogel declined to comment for this story.

Find a way on board the cargo ship

To get to the cargo ship, grab a vehicle from one of three locations marked on the Map - a Miami at the Stoughton dock, a Horizon at the Hotel Penthouse helipad or an Oppressor in Wardill Airport.

Head to the vessel and board it - this may be difficult as some of the Ultor security guards on deck - particularly at the bow (front) of the ship - have RPG Launchers that can shoot down a helicopter.

Eliminate the Ultor security team

There are 18 Ultor guards in total.

Once those on deck have been killed, the last 5 are highlighted in the hold, accessible through a door near the bow.

Cutscene and Checkpoint

The Handle With Care mid-mission cutscene plays. Even if the last guard is taken as a Human Shield and led above deck, Playa spawns inside the hold after the cutscene.

We need you to add more information about this subject.

  • Specific information is needed about each wave

You can help by editing the page.


The Brotherhood storm the cargo ship in three separate waves, and are delivered with Brotherhood Oppressors, Brotherhood Miamis, and normal Sharks.

Ammunition can be refilled at any time by visiting the ship's hold. After destroying each wave, the game provides time to revisit the room and resupply.

The waves themselves aren't particularly difficult, but the gang members board both sides and can be overwhelming. Head to the bow and, rather than trying to shoot the boats and helicopters on their way to the boat, shoot the helicopters with the RPG Launcher as they close in and attempt to drop enemies off nearby. Any surviving helicopters endlessly fly around the cargo ship in a pattern until destroyed. The boats pull up alongside the cargo ship and offload enemies too, but they can easily be gunned down. Furthermore, the boats are no longer a problem once their passengers have disembarked, unlike the helicopters.

Once all three waves of The Brotherhood's attack have been repelled, the mission ends. After the mission completion screen, an Oppressor helicopter spawns on deck.

Newspaper bh09 The Enemy of My Enemy

The Stilwater Gazette newspaper clipping from the completion screen and Newspaper Clipboard.

  • The title of this mission is inspired by the adage, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend".
  • Although there are K6 Krukov assault rifles inside the weapons caches, all assault rifle ammo is available.
  • The cargo ship in this mission is defined in the game's files as a building, not a vehicle, and only appears in this mission.
  • This mission is similar to the later Saints Row: The Third mission "The Ho Boat": both missions involve raiding a ship with cargo belonging to an enemy gang and end with repelling a counterattack that comes in waves via helicopters and boats.
  • The mission script refers to the Horizon as "Attack Helicopter". There is an unused section of the mission script which would have made the Horizon automatically explodes when fired upon after landing on the cargo ship, and a disabled line that would automatically detonate it after the mid-mission cutscene.
  • The Hotel Penthouse elevator is a custom trigger which is added during the mission. After getting into any 3 of the marked vehicles, including the Horizon, the rooftop trigger remains, but the ground floor trigger is removed. When the crib is owned, the normal elevator is restored, but when it is not owned, the ground floor trigger is removed entirely, and there is no way to get back to the rooftop.
  • The Warp to Shore function is disabled for the entire mission.

"Of Shipments and Skee-Ball" cutsceneEdit

Playa: "Tell me you didn't pick this place just so you could play that stupid game."
Shaundi: "No, I picked this place so we could play this stupid game...this gang shit's got you a little stressed out, you need to relax."
Playa: "By playing skee-ball."
Shaundi: "Oh yeah."
Playa: "Ya know most people just smoke pot."
Shaundi: "Right...and then they go play skee-ball."
Playa: "Fuck it."
Playa: "So did you hit the docks like I asked?"
Shaundi: "Wait, what?"
Playa: "After the Feed Dogs concert, I called you to look into the docks and you sa-"
Shaundi: "Look, I gotta be honest I was really stoned..."
Playa: "You gotta be kiddin' me."
Shaundi: "Yeah I totally am. One of the dock workers just called and said this big guy with tattoos and a scarred face was shakin' people down trying to find out when some shipment was rescheduled to arrive."
Playa: "Why would Maero need to ask about the time of his own shipment?"
Shaundi: "I dunno, maybe it got delayed."
Playa: "And you're sure this big guy with tattoos is Maero, and not just some biker guy?"
Shaundi: "I'd bet my life on it."
Playa: "Deal."
Shaundi: "Wait... hold up, waddya mean deal?"
