OverviewEdit

With their headquarters secured, Pierce believes it's time for the 3rd Street Saints to start taking over Steelport. Together with The Protagonist, they cause chaos around the city, disrupting various gang operations and purchasing businesses, ultimately destabilizing the Morningstar's hold over Steelport.

Gameplay Edit

Takeover the City

Gameplay from the mission.

Similar to "Steelport Here I Am", this mission acts somewhat as a tutorial and introduces Store Ownership, Collectibles, Gang Operations, and Notoriety. The mission cannot be started until Guardian Angel and the easy instance of Trafficking has been completed.

Meet Pierce

Pierce arrives in an Infuego.

Purchase Friendly Fire

Buy the nearby Friendly Fire store; it only costs $100 as opposed to the usual $5,000.

Purchasing this Property can be done before starting the mission.

Find the sex doll

Drive to and collect the marked sex doll Collectible, which can be collected while inside the vehicle.

This Collectible can be collected before starting this mission.

Head to the Estates

Buying the Havemayer Estates is also cheap - another $100.

Purchasing this Property can be done before starting the mission.

Go to the Gang Operation

Finish off the mission by defeating two Gang Operations

The Gang Operations are only present during this mission.

The first Gang Operation is near an office building south-east of the Syndicate Tower.

Eliminate the Gang Operation

Kill all marked Morningstar members to eliminate the Gang Operation.

Go to the Gang Operation

Drive to the second Gang Operation, located in the parking lot next to the Syndicate Tower.

Eliminate the Gang Operation

Same as with the previous Gang Operation, kill all marked Morningstar members.

Hide to lower Notoriety

Fleeing back to Friendly Fire to remove Notoriety.

Rewards Edit

  • Cash awarded at the end of the mission

Trivia Edit

  • Pierce reveals he collects Sex Dolls.
  • Although this mission introduces Property Ownership, and explains it is possible because they already hold the deeds, all Properties can be purchased before obtaining the deeds.
  • After arriving the the Gang Operation and leaving, on-screen text says "You are leaving the Flashpoint", revealing in-game the internal name for the diversion.
