"Bad Trip" is the sixth mission of the Sons of Samedi story arc in Saints Row 2.

Saints leader in drug fueled orgy of violence
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline


The Protagonist is abducted and drugged by The General but, after almost being killed by his goons, they manage to roll out of the car. Not long after, Shaundi calls to warn The Protagonist that the Sons of Samedi are attacking the Saints Hideout, though the conversation is amusingly troubled due to The Protagonist's intoxication.[1]

After saving Shaundi and Pierce, and together protecting the Saints Hideout from an onslaught of Sons of Samedi, The Protagonist returns back to base and falls asleep.[2]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

A reported meeting between gang leaders has ended in violence as the feud between the Third Street Saints and the Sons of Samedi continues to escalate. Witnesses report seeing the Saints leader exit a Samedi vehicle in a hail of bullets before stumbling across town to the nighclub[sic] Purgatory. What followed was chaos of the highest magnitude as Saints and Samedi traded gunfire leaving numerous dead at the scene.


Bad Trip - Samedi Killed

Throughout this mission, The Protagonist is intoxicated, impairing their vision. As the mission progresses the effects wear off.

Get back to the hideout

After Shaundi requests The Protagonist's help, steal a nearby vehicle, such as the Superiore, and head towards the Saints Hideout.

Rescue Shaundi

Shaundi is downstairs fighting several Sons of Samedi. Upon reaching her, she automatically becomes a Homie and is no longer in any immediate danger.

Kill the Samedi

After reaching street level, more Sons of Samedi arrive.

Help Pierce

Pierce arrives, pursued by even more Samedi. Until he becomes a Homie, Pierce also has a health bar.

The rest of the mission consists of killing all Sons of Samedi that attack - there are well over 60 of them. Use cover effectively and be sure to eat food or retreat back inside if one's health drops. Take care not to get caught in any nearby explosions and do not get run over.

Newspaper ss06 Bad Trip

The Stilwater Gazette newspaper clipping from the completion screen and Newspaper Clipboard.

  • The mission's names comes from the term "bad trip" which means a "disturbing experience typically associated with use of a hallucinogen or other psychedelics".
  • It is not possible to use the elevator at the Saints Hideout during this mission.
  • When Pierce is called as a Homie, he drives a Bulldog. However, during this mission, and "Bonding Experience", Pierce drives a Mag.
    • It is possible to keep the Mag by exiting the mission after entering the vehicle. This also works during a Mission Replay by using either the homie death pause glitch, or the Replay in a Replay glitch.
  • The Protagonist's vision slowly clears up as the mission progresses, but the effects of the Loa Dust doesn't clear completely until the mission is over.
  • It's possible to complete the mission despite being smoked. In this case, it's possible the end-mission cutscene gets skipped.
  • The cutscene shows a Hayate Z70, Keystone, Superiore, DonoVan and Taxi colliding, but during gameplay, the Taxi is replaced with a Churchill. The 5 vehicles are custom variants with set features and colours, but the Churchill is a standard variant, and so it looks different each time the mission is played.

Mr. Sunshine: "Wakey wakey..."
The Protagonist: "Where am I?"
The General: "You are sitting with your betters my friend. I wanted to see the face of the individual who had caused me so much far I find the experience to be underwhelming..."
The Protagonist: "Who the fuck are you?"
The General: "I am the man whose property you stole and destroyed..."
The Protagonist: "Oops."
The General: "You needn't dwell on your will not live to learn from them..."
The Protagonist: "That so?"
Mr. Sunshine: "I'm afraid it is..."
The Protagonist: "Who the fuck are you?"
Mr. Sunshine: "They call me Mr. Sunshine."
The Protagonist: "Well listen sunshine, I don't care how fucked up your face is, I ain't scared of you, or that other asshole."
Mr. Sunshine: "Pity."
The General: "Gentleman, I'm through meeting my adversary...if you please, dispose of this trash."
Sons of Samedi gang member: "Of course General."
The Protagonist: "You're a general?"
The Protagonist: "You hear that? That asshole thinks he's a- SHIT!"
The Protagonist: "This is a bad time to be fucked up..."
