I'm Free - Free Falling Steelport Here I Am

"We're Going to Need Guns" is the third mission in Saints Row: The Third.

...I love to make an entrance.
We're Going to Need Guns intro
Pierce, upon arrival and gunning down the advancing SNG.


Following on from the previous mission[3], Playa and Shaundi find themselves in the city of Steelport after escaping from Phillipe Loren.

The body of Mr. Gat will be a message for all who oppose The Syndicate. There is no mercy...only death. Don't mourn your friend. You'll be joining him soon.
— Phillipe Loren threatens Playa over the phone

The two head for Friendly Fire to arm themselves and then decide to raid the Guard Armory in Sierra Point to get some more firepower. Pierce arrives with the rest of the 3rd Street Saints via helicopters and after Pierce uses a Stork to steal a military bomb they all escape to Shaundi's Ex's Apartment, where they establish a temporary base.

At the apartment, the Saints commit themselves to avenging Gat's death, with Shaundi being the most affected.


We're Going to Need Guns - Protect the Bomb objective

This mission automatically starts upon completing I'm Free - Free Falling. It is not possible to exit this mission, only to restart it.

Steal a car

While Phillipe Loren confirms that Johnny Gat is dead over the phone, a Neuron is marked on the GPS, but entering any vehicle fulfils this objective.

Playa is armed with both a 45 Shepherd and a TEK Z-10, even if a 45 Shepherd was not picked up in the previous mission.

It is not possible to skip this objective. If Friendly Fire is used before entering a car, the weapon upgrade objective is displayed, but cannot be completed, and reverts to "Steal a car".

Access Cell Phone Map

Use the Cellphone to open the Map and select Friendly Fire in Henry Steel Mills

This objective can be skipped by setting the GPS before entering a vehicle.

This objective, and the next, can be skipped by going directly to Friendly Fire.

Entering Friendly Fire during this objective automatically opens the store menu.

Go to Friendly Fire

Head to Friendly Fire in Henry Steel Mills (northeast Downtown).

This objective does not appear until the Map is used, and can be completely skipped by going directly to Friendly Fire without opening the Map.

Entering Friendly Fire during this objective automatically opens the store menu.

Purchase a weapon upgrade

Weapon Upgrades are introduced.

Buying ammunition fulfills this objective.

If a Weapon Upgrade is previously purchased, this objective remains active until something else is purchased.

If Playa has less than $100, $100 is added automatically. It is possible to obtain a free $100 by first walking to Friendly Fire, buying an upgrade, then entering a car.

This objective remains active if not completed even after leaving Friendly Fire. Re-entering Friendly Fire while this objective is active does not result in the store menu opening automatically.

Exit Store

Leave the store menu.

Go to the Guard Armory

Drive to Sierra Point

Go to the Warehouse[4]

This objective flashes up for a split second when entering Sierra Point.

Find the weapons cache

The weapons cache is located inside Guard Armory in the south-east of the island.

Kill the guards

Upon nearing the Armory, there are 6 marked SNG soldiers outside it. They are armed with AS3 Ultimax shotguns and KA-1 Kobra pistols.

Find the weapons cache

The marker is located inside the Warehouse.

Kill the guards

Upon entering the Warehouse itself, there are 8 more marked SNG soldiers.

Find the weapons cache

The marker is now located at the rear corner of the Warehouse.

Hold your position

A KA-1 Kobra, TEK Z-10 and AS3 Ultimax spawn in the south east corner of the building.

There are multiple unmarked enemies, including two soldiers armed with Riot Shields.

Use the Reaper Drone

Once Pierce arrives, grab the nearby Reaper Drone. It has infinite ammo for this mission. Missiles can be dumb-fired or guided; dumb-fired missiles travel faster but guided missiles are more accurate and arguably more fun.

Protect the helicopters

During this objective, there are 5 marked SNG Bulldogs to destroy, as well as multiple others which are unmarked.

There are also green-marked Saints' Stork and Oppressors to avoid.

Destroy the tanks

There are 4 SNG Challengers to destroy, they are accompanied by infinitely spawning marked SNG Bulldogs, but these are not required to be destroyed.

Once the 4 Challengers are destroyed, the objective changes back to "Protect the helicopters" for several seconds, although no action is required.

Get in Pierce's chopper

Once Pierce is ready, he lowers his Oppressor helicopter outside the gates, while the Stork with the bomb is positioned immediately outside the Warehouse

If this mission is resumed from this Checkpoint, Playa spawns at the pickup location.

Protect the bomb

A level 4 K-8 Krukov is supplied for this section.[5] There at 7 Tornados which pursue the Saints, it is not a mission requirement to destroy them, although Shaundi may take some out, others may crash, and all remaining Tornados spontaneously explode upon reaching the destination.

During this portion of the mission, the Saints' helicopters are immune to friendly fire.

The mission is successfully completed once Pierce reaches Shaundi's Ex's Apartment. The next mission does not autostart, so Steelport can be explored freely before beginning the next mission.[6]


  • Cash awarded at the end of the mission
  • Shaundi's Ex's Apartment unlocked
  • Reaper Drone unlocked
  • Saintsbook unlocked
  • Upgrades unlocked
  • Gang - Followers unlocked in the Upgrades menu after We're Going to Need Guns

We're Going to Need Guns radio newscasts media 00004
Jane Valderamma: "A light rain can refresh the soul and wash away the stains of the day. When that rain is several tons of metal, the stains are all that's left of the people caught in the downpour. Several National Guard helicopters suffered from some form of malfunction during what officials are saying was a training exercise. Though several eye witnesses report one helicopter carrying what looked like a bomb, no confirmation is being given. The wreckage is being cleared away and taken for further analysis in the hopes such an event will never happen again. This is Jane Valderamma with your Steelport Breaking News."


  • The newscasts for the previous two missions, "When Good Heists Go Bad" and "I'm Free - Free Falling", play during this mission.
  • The SNG logo, which is located on the ground in front of the warehouse, includes Mr. Toots, who appeared in Red Faction: Armageddon, another game made by Volition, Inc.[7]
  • The bomb that the 3rd Street Saints steal in this mission is the famous "Daisy Cutter" BLU-82B heavy weight bomb, which is usually dropped from a C-130 cargo plane.
  • A few seconds before the level ends, the weapon selection wheel becomes available.
    • If fists are selected, it appears as if Playa is still holding the K-8 Krukov, and they automatically face the building across from the side of the helicopter.
  • If the Reaper Drone is used again immediately after destroying all the tanks, the game may glitch and not progress to the next section of the mission.
  • The mission is impossible to complete if the Super Explosions Cheat is activated, as destroying an SNG Tornado detonates the bomb.
  • The Reaper Drone can be used to destroy military helicopters spawning around the base and to boost up the "Destroy Helicopters" Challenge.
  • The "Access Cell Phone Map" objective can be skipped. However it is impossible to do so during the Saints Row IV tutorial mission "The Fundamentals".
  • Before going to Friendly Fire, it is impossible to get police and Morningstar Notoriety.
    • It is possible to enter Sierra Point without getting Notoriety and steal an Eagle.
    • Although it is possible to get Deckers and Luchadores Notoriety, no enemy units are dispatched.
    • Because of this, all available Gang Operations can be destroyed without any enemy backup involved.
  • Male Voice 1 still says "We'll need a car" even if already in a vehicle.
  • There is an unused objective to "Eliminate The Reinforcements".
  • In Saints Row: The Third Remastered, Gang - Followers is not unlocked, so Homies cannot be called until it is purchased in the Upgrades menu.
  • In Saints Row: The Third Remastered, the DLC unlock screens shown after this mission are shortened, with most DLC being silently unlocked instead.
