  • Rescue Kev and Eli
  • Defeat the Collective member – mini-boss fight
  • Get in the truck
  • Defend the truck

Rewards for completing the mission

  1. XP and cash rewards;
  2. new Eli’s Ride vehicle – you can access it from the garage;
  3. RPG Launcher – check the armory in the Saints’ hideout and equip the launcher (it will then show up in the weapon wheel);

  1. access to Call for Backup – you can view the Contacts in your smartphone and call your allies to support you in combat.

Saints’ apartment

The mission begins in your apartment, and it is quite amusing at first. You need to try to get out of bed three times (X/A on the controller).

Then go to the kitchen, grab a toast, and try to use the toaster (Triangle/Y on the controller, three times).

Finally, go to the living room and sit on the couch.

Get to the Idols Party

After the cutscene, you’ll find yourself outside the building. Enter the car and head to where the Idols are partying, in Marina West. The way forward is blocked with a barricade – you can break through it by driving at high speed or bypass it.

Rescue Kev and Eli

Leave the car and head to where Kev and Eli are. You’ll face some Idols along the way, but the initial encounters aren’t challenging in any way.

Defeat the Collective member – mini-boss fight

You’ll eventually face a mini-boss – the Collective member.

The boss has unique skills and is much more resistant to attacks. One of his skills is temporarily blinding you. If he does that, keep moving; otherwise, you’ll be an easy target and wait for the effect to wear off.

The enemy can also generate fireworks explosions. This is an AoE attack, so run away as far as you can to get away from it.

If you get stunned, mash Circle/B to recover. The longer you’re stunned, the easier it is for the enemies to hurt you.

Try to revive your allies if they get taken down, but only if you can do so relatively safely.

Focus on attacking the boss, draining his armor bar, and then his health bar. Try not to ignore regular enemies either, though – we recommend using AoE attacks and Takedowns on them to recover.

Get into the vehicle

Once the fight is over, make your way to the exit, taking care of any remaining enemies on the way. Finally, reach the truck and climb in to escape from the scene.

Protect the truck

As you ride atop the truck, equipped with a rocket launcher with unlimited ammo, shoot at the pursuing vehicles. Be sure to aim accurately, as reloading the launcher takes a significant amount of time.

The pursuit ends after a short while when you reach the tunnel.
