This goal of this activity is to chase down and hijack certain cars from their owners while they are driving around Stilwater.
Distinct from the Chop Shop car collection activity which requires any car of that type, in Hijacking the specific car required is marked on the map. The activity is timed, and often involves crossing the entire city in order to find the car. Once the driver gets out, the timer dissapears.
Once stolen, the car must be delivered back to the hijacking garage.
The Hijacking activity has levels, rather than a list of cars, and must be completed in order, but as with other activities, the levels can be replayed after completing the activity.
Phil shakes The Protagonist's hand, but after noticing how greasy it is, The Protagonist wipes it on Phil's shirt.
Phil: "Jesus, if you're scared of gettin' a little dirty you're in the wrong line of work buddy. I hope you're not that big of a pussy when it comes to jacking shipments. Look, I only work with professionals, if you say you got skills, I'll set you up with a target. But if you're some punk who just likes to drive mommy's car fast, you can stay home."
Sam stands still, looking at the building as The Protagonist approaches him.
Sam: "It ain't much now playa, but I promise you, this place is gonna make me rich."
Sam turns to The Protagonist
Sam: "Ever since I was kid I wanted to handle a rig, but when I tried to get a job truckin' they told me they don't hire kids from the ghetto. Well fuck 'em, I'm gonna start my own company and the first thing I'm gonna do is put those bitches out of business. All I'd need you to do is make sure a couple shipments get jacked. Whatchu think? Wanna be my first employee?"
Ralph stands in his warehouse with his hands on his hips.
Ralph: "Let's cut to the chase. Names Ralph. My shipping company is fucked and I need help. I've got a list of shipments from our competitors...you go and rob those mother fuckers blind, ya hear me? You keep whatever money you make, I just want those bastards to be hurtin'. You in?"
While Hijacking was cut from Saints Row 2, it can be found half-complete in the game data files. Details are vague, however. The only information we have on it is dialogue files found in the game, and the lines from the strings file.
In Saints Row IV, Vehicle Theft is somewhat more similar to Hijacking than Chop Shop, as it requires going to a certain area to steal specific vehicles rather than being able to get the vehicles from anywhere.
