"Pimps Up, Hos Down" is the second Stronghold (and a mission) in Saints Row: The Third, available after completing both "Trojan Whores" and "Painting a Picture".

The Protagonist: "What the hell is the "STAG Initiative"?"
Zimos: "If it's free porn for everyone, I'm down."
Pimps Up Hos Down intro
The Protagonist and Zimos, after Monica Hughes announces the STAG Initiative at the Senate.

OverviewEdit

The Protagonist meets Zimos on a street corner where a crowd are gathering as Monica Hughes gives an address on television; following the attack in Stilwater[1] and the destruction of the Hughes Memorial Bridge, the Senate have launched the STAG Initiative. The two ponder on what the "STAG Initiative" is before walking off. Zimos has an idea to strike another blow at the Morningstar – he isn't particularly specific with his plan but it involves auctioning off The Protagonist as a sex slave to get into Safeword.

Once inside the BDSM club, The Protagonist, now naked and impaired, meets with Zimos once again. They head deeper into the club, fighting back the Morningstar and freeing all the hos. After disabling the security, they fight a Brute wielding a Mini-Gun and claim Safeword for the Saints.

Gameplay from the mission.

Meet Zimos
Go to the collection room

Head to the nearby collection room and kill the three enemies inside.

Disable security

After a few stumbles and some vomiting, The Protagonist will switch off the alarms and a few hos will join in the fighting.

Go to the security center

Head out into the main lobby and gun down the myriad of enemies in here, including the Sniper Specialists on the second floor. After they're all dead, follow the location marked on the HUD.

Disable security
Eliminate all Morningstar

As players fight through the makeshift jails here, several rooms will have computers that can be used to free the captive hos; freed hos will help join in the fight against the Morningstar.

Head to the garage
Kill the Brute

The final room contains a Mini-Gun-wielding Brute; as always with this variant of the Brute, their heads are their weak spot.

Rewards Edit

  • Cash awarded at the end of the mission
  • Safeword (Crib) unlocked
  • Safeword (Stronghold) unlocked


Trivia Edit

  • As with all Strongholds, the opening dialogue differs completely depending on which voice the player is using.
  • Zimos' "Boogie Bus" van makes its sole in-game appearance in the opening cutscene of this mission.
  • This is one of two missions in the Saints Row series that requires The Protagonist to be naked. The other one is "The Real World" in Saints Row IV.
    • Any backpack worn will not be removed.
  • Zimos' reply to The Protagonist questioning the STAG Initiative, "If it's free porn for everyone, I'm down", is a reference to the word "stag" being a slang term for pornographic films.[2]
  • The hos that can be freed throughout the mission will fight against the Morningstar members in the club and will pickup fallen weapons. These characters are like regular citizens so they will fall with little fire from the Morningstar. They can also be recruited as Homies. Some of the hos will use The Penetrator.
  • A Brute dressed as a female can be seen in one of the cages; there is no way to set it free.
    • If Oleg is brought with the player on this mission (by calling him before it begins), he will say, "You are no daughter of mine" to the Brute.
  • It is possible to kill the Mini-Gun-wielding Brute with one shot by shooting the propane tank that is to his right.
  • The name of the mission is both a reference to the 1998 documentary of the same name and the unlock screens for the pimp clothes and Pimp Cane in Saints Row.

Cutscene Edit

Monica Hughes: "While no group has taken credit for the attack in Stilwater, we have ignored its root cause. Our uncontrolled media and the goods sold to our children have fetishized gang culture and turned sociopathic madmen into heroes. No more!"
Monica Hughes: "Those responsible for this act of terror will be found and held accountable."
Monica Hughes: "The STAG Initiative marks a milestone in taking back the streets of America!"
The Protagonist: "What the hell is the "STAG Initiative"...?"
Zimos: "If it's free porn for everyone - I'm down."
The Protagonist: "So what's the lead?"
Zimos: "I got you hooked up, Slim."
The Protagonist: "Very discreet."
Zimos: "That's an invitation to kick the Morningstar right in their collective pussy. They're having an auction tonight--flash the card, and you're in."
The Protagonist: "So what, I pretend to be an eccentric millionaire?"
Zimos: "Kind of. I'm gonna auction you off as a sex slave."
The Protagonist: "Fuck. That."
