"When a Plan Comes Together" is a mission in Saints Row IV.

Everything's in place. It's time to end this once and for all.
— Quest description


Playa contacts Benjamin King and asks him to get the crew to Kinzie's Warehouse to plan how to get rid of the Zin. While talking to Benjamin however, there is static in the background, which Playa shrugs off as Kinzie messing with the line.

Upon getting there, they wait for Matt Miller's arrival, who rushes in and informs them of a lot of Zin are heading to their location. Asha tells the crew that they should be able to get into position and ambush them, but Shaundi notices on the monitor that ambushing them would not be possible and leads to the Saints making an emergency stand in the warehouse.

The crew goes to repel the attack, but the Zin throw Suppression Grenades to suppress Playa's and any Homies Super Powers for the mission's duration and they fight with only firearms. As Matt and Asha take a bike back to The Ship, the others take care of more Zin and Destructors. Benjamin and Pierce cover Playa, Johnny, Shaundi, Fun Shaundi and Kinzie so they can get to the Eagle. Playa has to cover Benjamin and Pierce back to The Ship, clearing roadblocks and destroying pursuing Zin. Eventually, the Eagle takes critical damage and and crash lands on the rooftop of Super Ethical Reality Climax. The group enters the building and the game starts up, and Playa has to kill many Zin and Professor Genki to get out while. After heading into the prize room, Shaundi and Fun Shaundi splits away from the group while Kinzie, Johnny and Playa drives the Genkimobile to get away and continue to cover Benjamin and Pierce from more roadblocks before they can get to the Sunset Park Gateway.

Benjamin contacts Playa and tells them Pierce and him are pulling out of The Simulation. Playa notices the interference that occurs at the start of the mission and then questions Kinzie how the Zin found them. However, Zinyak intervenes and lands in front of the Genkimobile and cripples the car and stunning the Saints. Zinyak pulls Kinzie out of the car and proceeds to violently smash her against the vehicle while Johnny tries to stop him, only to fail and have Zinyak capture Kinzie. Shaundi then informs Playa and Johnny to get back to The Ship immediately, leading to "All Hands on Deck".

  • The mission title is a reference to The A-Team, in which John "Hannibal" Smith often says "I love it when a plan comes together."
  • This mission can be started via a mission marker inside Kinzie's Warehouse, rather than via the Hub.
    • In addition, the mission marker may appear there after beating the game, allowing to replay this mission and "All Hands on Deck".
  • Playa and Homies losing their Super Powers is a scripted event, so avoiding the Suppression Grenade does not stop Playa or any Homies losing their Powers. It is possible to completely exit the building and fly away before powers are disabled.
  • During this mission, Asha and Matt ride a Bloody Cannoness while Ben and Pierce drive a Saints Hammer. These vehicles, and the Eagle, spawn immediately when the mission starts, but none of them can be entered or destroyed.
  • The Eagle crashing is a scripted event, and if the Helicopter isn't at the right altitude, it flies upwards as it crashes in order to crash on the correct roof.
  • After crashing on the roof, it is impossible to jump off of it. Jumping off the roof warps Playa back onto the roof.
  • The mission script file indicates that Donnie was intended to be the person who was kidnapped.[2]
  • There is a blue and white "m16" variant of the Eagle. This mission is m16, but the m16 Eagle is not used during this mission.
  • This is the only mission in the series where 4 homies are recruited.
  • Genki's health is 40000 in singleplayer, while in Co-op it is 70000.
  • During the Super Ethical Reality Climax portion, Male Voice 3 says "Big Money, Big Prizes, I love it!", which is a quote from the presenter in the 1990 Midway arcade game Smash TV.[3]
