"Showdown" is the eleventh and final mission of The Brotherhood story arc in Saints Row 2.

Ultor arena holds bloodbath
Ultor Times newspaper headline


With Maero having lost so much to the 3rd Street Saints, he calls The Protagonist for a final showdown at the Ultor Dome. The Protagonist shows up, eager to finish The Brotherhood, but it quickly transpires that Maero has not come alone.[2]

The Protagonist defends against the onslaught of desperate gang members and guns them all down. Maero attempts to run The Protagonist over in his Atlasbreaker monster truck but is stopped. As Maero struggles to climb out of the wreckage of his vehicle, The Protagonist hits him a few times and, aiming a gun at his head, executes him.[3]


The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
It can be read in-game upon completion of the mission by selecting the mission at a Newspaper Clipboard.

The gang known as the Brotherhood of Stilwater came to an[sic] bloody end today, as its leader Maero was found dead in the Ultor Arena. No eye-witnesses were left alive, but reports from around the neighborhood suggest a person matching the description of the leader of the Saints was seen entering the Arena shortly before the presumed time of Maero's death. Calls to the Philips[sic] Building regarding what occurred in their facility were not immediately returned.


Showdown - Maero HUD

Gameplay from the mission.

The mission takes place in a small arena. Maero drives around the sunken edge of the battleground in a circle and only goes after The Protagonist once all other enemies are dead.

Kill Maero At the beginning of the mission The Protagonist is behind a slab of concrete, hidden from The Brotherhood members. Gun down all the enemies as they drive past - killing the drivers forces the other occupants out, but destroying the vehicles is the easier option should the player have enough ammunition.

Once all the enemies are killed, Maero becomes more aggressive and attempts to run over The Protagonist with his Atlasbreaker. An RPG Launcher is located in the center of the arena. Use as much firepower as possible to destroy Maero's monster truck - as this is the final mission in The Brotherhood story arc, there is little need for holding back.
