Escort - Saints Row 2 icon

Escort is an Activity in Saints Row, Saints Row 2, and Saints Row: The Third[1], and is a deleted activity in Saints Row IV.

Ui act question

For the Mission, see Escort Service

Drive around town and keep the paparazzi away from your car to earn cash and respect.
— Escort introduction in Saints Row 2[2]

OverviewEdit

The Protagonist is given a luxury car with tinted windows, and must first pick up a Prostitute before driving to the client, who is either male or female. Once the client is collected, the 'pleasure' meter begins to build. Once the 'pleasure' meter is full, that stage is complete.

There are numerous obstacles to avoid, such as paparazzi, significant others, private investigators and the IRS. When any of these are close enough, progress of the 'pleasure' meter is halted, and the 'footage' meter increases. If the 'footage' meter fills up, the mission is failed.

The client occasionally asks for specific things, such as smashing up other cars, driving really fast, making long jumps, going to specific destinations or killing a specific pedestrian. Until these requirements are met, the pleasure meter stops progressing.

After two consecutive rounds, the hooker must be exchanged for a 'fresh' one, which gives an opportunity to have the car repaired.

Firing a weapon whilst in the car drains the pleasure meter, even if the shots don't hit anything.

In co-op, the guest takes the role of the prostitute, eliminating the need to pick one up.[3][4]

Tiger EscortEdit

Drive fast and safe to keep the Tiger happy and increase your courage.
— Instructions

In Saints Row: The Third, there is a variant of Escort in which a Tiger is escorted, rather than a client with a Prostitute.

Angel De LaMuerte tasks The Protagonist with driving around in a vehicle with a tiger in the backseat, in an effort to make sure The Protagonist is tough enough to fight the Syndicate.

The "pleasure" and "footage" meters are replaced with "Courage" and "Animal Rage" respectively. When a news van gets too close, or the car collides with cars and obstacles, the tiger mauls The Protagonist.

The tiger does not for specific tasks, but it sometimes attacks The Protagonist, which temporary affects steering. Filling the "Animal Rage" does not cause instant failure; the chance is given to calm the tiger by drifting his car for a few seconds.

In co-op play, a guest sits in the backseat in an attempt to tame the tiger "if things get too tough".

Saints RowEdit

A unique vehicle is provided for each instance of the activity. Each can be kept by exiting the activity.

IRS agents drive an Interest, the Private Investigator drives a Zircon, while the significant other drives a Ricochet. At times, the significant other is armed with an NR4 pistol, firing it as she pursues The Protagonist, the escort, and the client.

LocationsEdit

Escort - The No Touching Rule - Jack

Jack

Los Carnales

Location: Wardill Airport

  • Contact: Jack
Jack: "Hey kid, how'd you like to make some quick cash."
The Protagonist approaches Jack's table and reaches for the money Jack had just been counting.
Jack: "Evidently you aren't familiar with the no touching rule...You want the money, you do me a favor. I got a couple of high-profile regulars who want a little more than a lap dance. Now, normally they could go off to the VIP room, bust a nut and be on their way. But these guys have special tastes they'd like to keep, uh, private. Being caught with a hooker is bad enough. Being caught with a fat hooker is even worse. I got a girl waiting in a car out back, all you got to do is pick up the John and give the two of them some privacy. Just make sure no one sees what's going on, alright?"

Escort - Camera Shy - Bruno

Bruno

Vice Kings

Location: Bavogian Plaza, Red Light District

  • Contact: Bruno
Samantha: "Hey, baby."
Samantha approaches The Protagonist and smiles. Meanwhile a Paparazzi is attempting to photograph her.
Bruno[5]: "No fuckin' cameras!"
Bruno takes the Paparazzi's camera and throws him to the ground.
Paparazzi: "Please, I-I-I thought-"
Bruno: "You thought you'd come here to get a story, but let me tell ya somethin', that ain't gonna happen. Now get the hell out."
Bruno throws the Paparazzi towards the entrance. The Paparazzi gets up and points.
Paparazzi: "You're gonna wish you never did that, when my lawyers get through-"
The Protagonist punches the Paparazzi out.
Bruno: "Nice! Thanks for saving me the trouble. Tell ya what; we could use someone who's got no love for the press. A bunch of big shots like to rent our girls for private parties, and there's nothing the media loves more than a sex scandal. If you can make sure our girls can do their job without the press catching on, we'll pay you some serious cash."

Escort - Class Act - Jenna

Jenna

Westside Rollerz;

Location: Misty Lane, Suburbs District

  • Contact: Jenna
Jenna: "Hey darlin'. Why don't you have a seat?"
Jenna motions to the seat next to her, and The Protagonist sits down.
Jenna: "I don't mean to pick on ya or anything, but most of the Saints go to places that are a little trashier...why do I got the feelin' you're looking for something other than pink?"
The Protagonist gives a shrug.
Jenna: "I guess you like to keep to yourself...that's good, I like discretion. Celebrities look to me when they're in need of companionship. They've all made their way into my little black book, and the list keeps growing. These are powerful people, and if their hobbies were made public it would ruin their careers, to say nothing of my livelihood. If you're up for it, I need a driver. Simple job; take the girl to the client, then give them enough time in private."

Sykes in Escort cutscene in Saints Row 2

Sykes

Sykes runs an illegitimate escort business through the Tee'N'Ay strip club and is being watched by the police. He wears black clothing, has a French accent, and speaks in third person.

Sykes: "'Ello mon ami...what can Sykes do for you?"
The Protagonist: "You know what the overhead for runnin' a gang is? I gotta get some money rollin' in."
Sykes: "Charity is not a favorite virtue of Sykes... perhaps though, Sykes can interest you in some work."
The Protagonist: "Keep talking."
Sykes: "Naturally, as Sykes is currently under investigation by the Stilwater PD this is, of course, hypothetical. But IF there was a car out front containing a loose woman...and IF you were to provide an environment where said woman could entertain lustful individuals, all while maintaining their privacy...Sykes MIGHT be able to pay you in cash or in trade."
The Protagonist: "Cash is good."
Sykes: "Looks like we have ourselves a partnership, no?"
The Protagonist: "Partnership nothin', I'm just driving around your hos."
Sykes (unused): "Sykes appreciates your candor."

Frat Row - University District

Lindsey is contacted through Thirteen Thirty Seven internet cafe. He resembles a stereotypical nerd, and prefers to be known as a "Romance Manager" rather than pimp.

Lindsey: "Thanks for coming...I'm Lindsey"
The Protagonist: "You look a little nerdy to be a pimp."
Lindsey: "I'm not a pimp, I'm a romance manager."
The Protagonist: "So what, no girl will let you turn her out?"
Lindsey: "That's not the point."
The Protagonist: "No girls means no work."
Lindsey: "Look: just 'cause I'm not working a corner like that bloated asshole Helmers doesn't mean that I don't have any girls. I organize all my john's through Meg's List. All I need is a driver to move the girls to the clients."
The Protagonist: "Why don't you do it?"
Lindsey: "Oh, I don't have my license yet..."
The Protagonist: "This is a hell of an operation you're running..."
Lindsey: "Dude, shut up!"
The Protagonist: "Is that any way to talk to an employee?"
Lindsey: "So you'll help?"
The Protagonist: "Are you kiddin' me? I'm dyin' to see what kinda girls you're runnin up in this piece."

Saints Row: The ThirdEdit

They are two variants of Escort. The "escourt" variant is used in the 3 instances of Escort, and the "tiger_escort" variant is used for the 3 instances of Tiger Escort.

LocationsEdit

The regular one takes place in New Colvin District. The easy instance is located in the north of Camano Place while the medium instance is located in the south of this neighborhood. The hard instance takes place in Wesley Cutter Intl. The Tiger Escort takes place in Carver Island. The easy instance is located in the north of New Baranec while the medium instance is located in the south of this neighborhood. The hard instance takes place in Yearwood.

TipsEdit

Main article: Tips.
  • The trick to losing pursuing vehicles is doing handbrake aided u-turns (something the AI drivers can not do) from high speed or taking risky shortcuts.
  • Never slow down at roadblocks. If one can not be navigated around then forcing an opening by crashing right between two vehicles is the best option.
  • Drive on long, wide roads when possible. Those give more options for turning, obstacle evasion and driving on the wrong side of the road.
  • When tasked with killing a pedestrian, driving over them is preferred over SMG fire. Coming back for them when missed is best done by speeding up again and doing a u-turn.

TriviaEdit

  • The Easy instance of Escort in New Baranec is missing the difficulty subtitle on the Map.

Tiger EscortEdit

  • When played as a mission started through the Cellphone, the mission is named "Eye of the Tiger".
  • A GameInformer preview misidentified Tiger Escort with Guardian Angel.[6]
  • There are scenes similar to this activity in the movies Talledega Nights and The Hangover.
  • The Protagonist's reaction to this Activity is "A FUCKING TIGER?!".[7][8]
  • This activity has a real life counterpart in the ancient sport of "Lion Drome" in which the driver of a vehicle drives around an enclosed bowl like arena with a lion or other type of fierce animal at his side. The last Lion Drome closed in 1964, after the lion bit a carnival worker.[9]
  • Homies may be recruited but if one enters or attempts to enter the back seat the game freezes.[verify]
  • There is a similar tiger in The White House when The Protagonist, Pierce and Benjamin King are on their way to a press conference.[10]
  • In co-operative mode, in Saints Row: The Third, the guest calming the tiger has the option to punch it, using the melee button. This instantly fills the tiger's rage meter.

Saints Row IVEdit

Unused Icon

  • While this activity did not return in Saints Row IV, a map icon for it remains in the game's files. Unlike in other games, the icon depicts a steering wheel instead of a heart.
