Saint's Row 2 Guide
Gangsta Brawl: This is the standard Deathmatch mode, where points are earned for killing opponents. Weapons are strewn about, and can be picked up by walking over them. The player with the most kills at the end of the round wins.
Team Gangsta Brawl: A team-based version of Gangsta Brawl. Each player’s kills are added to their team’s total. The team with the most kills at the end of the round wins.
Strong Arm: This game type is comprised of a number of rounds, with each focusing on a different objective. Many of the objectives are similar to the activities in story mode, however they have all been altered for competitive play. Money is gained by killing players on the opposing teams, and by completing objectives. The team that earns the most money during an objective nets a $10,000 bonus. The team with the most money at the end of the match wins.
Strong Arm Objectives
Tagging: This is an on-going objective throughout a Strong Arm match. There are several graffiti locations on each map—denoted by spray can icons on the GPS—and each one offers a different perk to the team that controls it. These perks include abilities such as increased sprint duration, more health, more ammo, and police support. To tag a location, stand in the marker and hold Y/Triangle until it is completely covered. This takes about 10 seconds time, but all the while you leave yourself vulnerable to opponents. Spray over an opposing team’s tag to take the perk it offers away from them.
Brawl: The objective here is to simply kill players on the opposing team. More money is rewarded per kill than normally.
Demolition Derby: Earn money by damaging other vehicles with your own. Hitting opponents is worth the most money. Throughout the match, an Atlasbreaker dubbed “Gigatruck” roams the streets. The truck is denoted by the red shape on the GPS. Avoid Gigatruck if possible, as it will quickly trash your car, killing you in the explosion. Destroying Gigatruck is worth $10,000 however.
Hitman: Kill marked targets on the GPS to earn cash for your team ($1,500 per kill).
Insurance Fraud: This objective is similar to the story mode activity of the same name, however there is no adrenaline mode and weapons can be used. Travel to the highlighted area on the GPS and press RB/L1 to throw yourself into traffic to rack up cash.
Mayhem: Travel to the highlighted area on the GPS and destroy tables, chairs, benches, and other objects to earn points. Teams share a single combo bar, which increases the amount of money earned per object.
Racing: Follow the checkpoints around the map and make it to the end of the track before the race ends to earn a cash bonus. Get a car and make your way to the starting point before the race starts. You can jump in the race at any time, however, but get there early so you can mess with your opponents a bit. There are green bonus checkpoints along the way, and passing through them adds money to the team total. Cash is given to players who finish the race, with the largest amount being given for 1st place. The entire team should run through the race to rack up the most cash.
Snatch: This objective differs considerably from the story mode activity of the same name. Teams fight to recruit prostitutes denoted by green shapes on the GPS. Stand by an unclaimed girl until the bar next to her portrait is completely full to recruit her. A girl may be accompanied by an armed pimp whom must be killed before she can be recruited. Bring the girl to the client when they appear on the GPS (denoted by a cyan marker) to earn some extra cash.
Theft: The objective here is to steal marked objects, pick them up, and then sell them to a fence ($2000 apiece). Valuable goods are denoted by green shapes on the GPS, and the fence is denoted by the cyan shape. The team that makes the most money selling stolen goods to the fence wins the round.
