- City descends into CHAOS!
- — Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline
The Brotherhood strikes back at the 3rd Street Saints by wreaking havoc across their territories. Members of the gang instigate gang fights, drive through the city torching the streets, and trash store fronts. After being tipped off by Pierce, The Protagonist heads off and eliminates all of them, including a lieutenant being arrested with a group of 3rd Street Saints by the Stilwater Police Department.
Later, Maero arrives at the Phillips Building and forces Ultor CEO Dane Vogel to use his connections to free any incarcerated Brotherhood members, who in turn phones the unwilling Chief of Police Troy Bradshaw and forces him to make it so.
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.

This lieutenant is driving along the docks in a pattern, throwing Molotov Cocktails out behind them.
The only strategy here is to pelt the vehicle with as much firepower as possible.

- Break up the Brotherhood meeting and kill the Lieutenant
This lieutenant is located at the top of a multi-story car park and flees using a nearby ramp as they are approached.

It is possible to destroy the vehicle before it escapes, otherwise pursue them and gun them down.
The mission ends once all four lieutenants have been killed.
- At the location where The Brotherhood are being arrested, a Stilwater Police Department Oppressor always lands. It is possible to obtain it, but if it is exited, it floats away.
- The ramp that the lieutenant drives off at the top of the multi-story car park is a Stunt Jump.
- There are no lines of dialogue made during the gameplay section of this mission.
- This mission somewhat resembles a Pushback in that it has the player going from one location to the next, killing marked enemies.
- This is the only mission, along with the FUZZ Activity, where enemies throw Molotov Cocktails from a vehicle.
- "Business Partners" is also the name of a Drug Trafficking cutscene in Saints Row.

"Business Partners" cutsceneEdit
- Jaime: "Mr. Vogel, there's a Mr. Maero here to see you."
Dane Vogel: "Jaime, I'm trying to downsize here..."
Jaime: "Um...Mr. Vogel...I'm not sure I'm adequately conveying Mr. Maero's size..."
Dane Vogel: "Get him out of here..."Maero breaks open the doorDane Vogel: "Or send him in... Wow... Thanks Jaime."
Dane Vogel: "You must be Mr. Maero..."
Maero: "I've heard about the connections Ultor has...you're gonna get my boys outta jail and help me destroy the Saints."
Dane Vogel: "Your bargaining posture needs some work."
Maero: "The Saints killed my girlfriend and crippled my best friend."
Dane Vogel: "And that's unfortunate, but Ultor is a business and there's no profit in revenge. Don't worry about the door though, that one's on me."
Maero: "Fine. You want money? In a few days a shipment's coming in-"
Dane Vogel: "Mr. Maero, nebulous shipment or not, I think I made myself quite cl-"Maero angrily flips Dane's table, and picks up Dane by his neckMaero: "Let's try this again... You're gonna help me destroy the Saints."
Dane Vogel: "And Ultor would love to be of service."
Maero: "Good."Maero tosses Dane to the groundDane picks up the phoneReceptionist: "Stilwater police department."
Dane Vogel: "I need to talk to Troy Bradshaw."
Receptionist: "Who should I say is-"
Dane Vogel: "Do it!"
Receptionist: "Chief? There's a Mr. Vogel on the line."
Troy Bradshaw: "Put him through."
Dane Vogel: "Hello Troy..."
Troy Bradshaw: "Eh? Whaddya want Vogel?"
Dane Vogel: "It's not what I want, it's what I need..."
Troy Bradshaw: "Which is?"
Dane Vogel: "You are going to release all the Brotherhood you have locked up."
Troy Bradshaw: "And why the fuck would I do that?"
Dane Vogel: "I'm looking after my clients."
Troy Bradshaw: "Your uh, "clients", are a bunch of criminals."
Dane Vogel: "Guilty before a trial, nice. Is that the kind of mentality you like to instill in your subordinates?"
Troy Bradshaw: "Spare me, alright? They're not getting released and that's that."
Dane Vogel: "This is where we're gonna have to agree to disagree. These men are going free. The only question is if you'll let this be settled quietly, or if you want a media circus that will make you look like a joke."
Troy Bradshaw: "I thought Ultor wanted order? Ok, letting these assholes out is gonna only make things worse."
Dane Vogel: "Troy, in order to maintain the ecosystem, sometimes the rangers need to start forest fires...you should know that better than anybody. I suspect I'll hear from you soon."
