The Quest/Mission structure of Saints Row IV is a little confusing, because:

  • Quests are not Missions: Missions are Objectives in Quests.
  • Quests can have multiple Objectives, including multiple Missions as part of one Quest.
  • Missions are started by choosing Objectives, subsequent Objectives/Mission may auto-start.
  • Mission names do not usually match Quest names or Objective names.
  • Mission names are shown after completing the Mission, and are then listed in Completed Quests.
  • Side Quests become available after completing certain Objectives/Quests.
  • Side Quests may also have Missions as objectives.

So, let's get this right the first time!

  • When starting a Quest or new Objective:
    • Check and note down the Objectives listed in the Quest menu
    • Immediately try to exit it, and note down the name.
  • After completing each Quest or Objective:
    • Note down the name on the completion screen - this is the Mission name.
    • Save the game, and note down the name on the save screen - this is the Quest name.
    • Check the name shown in the Completed Quests list.
    • Check which Side Quests are available.

I'm fairly sure that these simple steps can be used to make sense of the Quest/Mission structure.

Ah, MM_2_CID - Mysterious Caller!
This is why CID is suddenly thrown into the story with no fucking introduction.
This "Mysterious Caller" mission was supposed to be CIDs introduction.

As with SRTT, all the mission names are in all caps, so we need to decide on capitalisation.

See: Forum:SRIV missions for a very messy list.
I'll work on it more later.

But during the meanwhilst, people should feel free to use this information - because that's why I uploaded it

In game confirmation is still required for ALL missions, as per the original post.

Since the side quests consist of City Takeover gameplay, and not actually real missions, I propose we just put them on a single Side Quests page, listing the objectives for each, the reward and the transcripts.
The transcripts are only 2 lines per quest, so I don't think it will get excessive. But if it turns out that there's too much information for a single page, we can always split it later.
