There are 50 challenges in the game. You can find them in the saint’s book on the menu. These challenges are just for completing repetitive tasks like driving 2,500,000 feet or blowing up cars, headshots, heavy kills… etc. 

I’m going to go over the odd and annoying challenges of the bunch, for the rest of the challenges, refer to the Saints Row 3 Wiki and a full list of all the challenges if you want to view the list outside of the game.

  • Find Shortcuts (Just driving around through gaps between buildings and other spots that look like then cut through to another area)
  • Take Hostages (Find a car with 2 people in it, hi-jack it, and drive as fast as possible in order to not let the passenger out. While driving you’ll be given a button prompt to take a hostage)
  • Hold Up Stores (Find a gun store or any store, and aim at the store clerk, wait for a bit and eventually it’ll count it as you robbing it)
  • Streak a while (To enable Streaking, Playa must be effectively nude, wearing no clothing on the torso or abdomen, so that both privacy bars appear on a female. To remove all clothing, first access the Wardrobe, either in a crib or via Clothing Stores. On the “outfits” tab, choose “Remove All Current Clothing”. After all other clothing has been removed, Hats, Masks, Glasses, Gloves, Footwear, and Jewelry can be worn. While Streaking Playa only needs to run in front of a civilian, no extra buttons need to be pressed.)
  • Vehicle Surf a while (Stand on top of a car, once it starts moving, balance on the car using the left analog stick)
  • Kill Specialists / STAG Commandos (These challenges are annoying if done before finishing the game because gangs will attack you less and STAG will completely disappear.)

Also, note: Challenges for destroying cars, killing enemies, and other killing and destruction based challenges can be done all at once before STAG show up in the game by going on a rampage in different parts of the city, then again when STAG do appear in the city. You can use the Saint’s tank (Unlocked after mission 3) or VTOL (Unlocked after the penthouse) To cause the mayhem.

Ow My Balls!
Do your first nutshot AND testicle assault.

Nutshots and testicle assaults are forms of attacks that you can perform on enemies. Nutshots are similar headshots except instead of aiming for the head, aim a bit lower to the nutsack. For the testicle assault, go up to an enemy and press (R3) This can be achieved during the very first mission of the game as there is nothing preventing you from performing these’s attacks at the start of the game.

Gender Equality
Play for at least 2 hours as a male character AND 2 hours as a female character.

For this trophy, you need to play both a male AND female character for at least 2 hours each on the same save file. This can be done at any time, and once the 2-hours have passed, head to an “Image As Designed” (Store on the map) and change your character to the opposite sex that you’re currently set to. After another 2 hours, the trophy is yours.

There are a lot of brutes through-out the story but if you don’t kill 50 by the end then getting your gang notoriety up will have brutes spawn. they also appear during a survival.

Haters Gonna Hate
Kill 1000 Gang Members.

This trophy will come naturally while playing the game, but killing 50 of each of the specialists for the different gangs, are also required for challenges so it’s smart to avoid buying the abilities that make your gang notoriety decay faster than normal until after you’ve unlocked these trophies. Also, do this for STAG as soon as possible to get the specialists out of the way.

Cowboy Up
Fully upgrade one Weapon in each slot.

Head to a gun store and go to the upgrades section, pick a gun from each slot and upgrade it to the max, this will cost a few hundred thousand, you’ll probably get it by the end of the game but you can get this at any time when the funds are available to you.

Everything is Permitted
Kill all of the hitman Assassination targets.

There are 36 targets in the game. You should work on this from the start of the game as it requires you to upset gangs which you may not be able to do so later on in the game as easily as you do in the beginning. For reference use these video guides.

Hi-Jack It
Steal and deliver all Vehicle Theft targets.

WARNING MISSABLE: Get the STAG N-FORCER BEFORE COMPLETING THE GAME.

For this trophy, you have to Steal and deliver all Vehicle Theft targets. There are 30 Vehicle Theft targets.

Note: You can try to steal some of the vehicles before selecting the mission and storing them in your garage. Vehicle such as the Lockdown becomes extremely difficult to obtain in the late game, so store-it / complete that as soon as you can.

The reason this is missable is due to STAG. You need to deliver a STAG N-Forcer before completing all the main storyline missions. Once completed, STAG is kicked out of the city and this vehicle will be impossible to obtain. To obtain one, you’ll have to get your notoriety with police to 3. Once there STAG will spawn an N-Forcer.
