Assassinations are a Diversion in Saints Row: The Third.[1] In Saints Row IV, it is known as Security Deletion.

Ui act question

Not to be confused with Hitman

OverviewEdit

Earn cash and respect by taking out targets via Saintsbook. For any Assassination target, there may be rival hitmen, or decoys. Rival hitmen may appear at any time after the target has been spotted, and try to kill the target.

  • Rival Hitmen have 45 Shepherd and 1500 Hitpoints.
  • Decoys have less health than actual targets.
  • Decoys typically behave like regular pedestrians, i.e. simply walking in a direction, while the actual targets usually perform more unique actions.
  • There are only 4 Targets available at any time.
  • Targets from Rasputin, Kinzie, Zimos, Angel and Mrs. Vandergriff are unlocked in order.
  • Targets from Angel, Kinzie and Zimos are only available after "Return to Steelport".
  • Targets for Mayor Reynolds are not available until after "Zombie Attack".
  • Killing a target unlocks a target at the next level. Killing a level 2 target unlocks a level 3 target, but never another level 2 target.

Saints Row IVEdit

The Diversion is returning in Saints Row IV, but is renamed to Security Deletion. It is similar to the Saints Row: The Third Assassination, although some targets are able to use most of Super Powers now.

RewardsEdit

  • Cash and Respect for each.

TriviaEdit

  • The Achievement/Trophy "Everything is permitted" is an allusion to a quote often attributed to Hassan-i Sabbah, the founder of historical order of Assassins: "Nothing is true, everything is permitted". The quote has been popularised recently by the Assassin's Creed series.
  • Sgt. Steiner is a reference to the protagonist of Sam Peckinpah's film Cross of Iron.
  • It is not possible to use the SA-3 Airstrike against Sgt. Steiner, as the missiles are redirected off the island instead of where they are actually targeted, missing Steiner completely.
  • A Morningstar gang member similar to Rasputin is shot and killed by Shaundi in the Power trailer.[3][4]
  • Zimos states that all hos in Espina work for Andre. However, Zimos' Pad in Espina contains Hos as well as Strippers.
  • Although the instructions for Smoov's target mention killing fat hos, in-game there is no distinction between fat hos and skinny hos.
  • The description for Whitney states that she must be killed by jumping out of the airplane mid-air. Although being in an airplane or helicopter is required to trigger her, she can be killed by any method after she spawns. (This is generally true of any target: once they appear on screen, they don't need to be killed exactly as per instructions.)
  • Hos tend to spawn more frequently at night. As such, targets that require locating them tend to be easier to finish at night, such as the Smoov assassination that requires a certain type of Ho.
  • The description for Ulysses incorrectly states Henry Steel Mills as his location. His real location is Salander.

Saints Row IVEdit

  • All graphic related targets are located in Stanfield, all targets from The Protagonist's past are located in Carver Island, all Zin system targets are located in Downtown. No Security Deletion targets are located in New Colvin.
  • Zinnimda and Zinsasser are references to the real life Windows worms Nimda and Sasser.

GlitchesEdit

  • In Co-op, if the guest kills Lucas, the host may not be able to unlock the deckers outfit.[Confirm?]
  • If "My Name is Cyrus Temple" is completed before killing Harry for Mrs. Vandergriff, then he spawns in the river because the bridges have been raised.
