To start off here is a map of the tag locations. These are the locations where you need to spraypaint your gang name over the other gang's names.

Tag Tips & Info

* Tags are activated by walking up to some graffiti that has a Spray Can icon in front of them. Once activated via the 'Y' button you have a limited time to get the Tag complete before all hell breaks lose.

When in a friendly area you can take as long as you like, but if you in a rivals area, the longer you take or the more times to screw up the quicker the wanted level for that group goes up.

Anything over 2 stars means a drive by is on its way, 3 stars and you better hope you have some homies with you.

* How to tag:- Once your in tag mode 4 options appear on the screen IE X, Y Rollstick left, B.

You have to hit these buttons in the correct order, simple ah? Not quite, when the stick options appear you cannot just hit all the buttons one after another you need to pause.

So in the above example you would press X, Y quickly, but then watch your character and wait for him to stop spraying and then Rollstick left followed quickly by the B button to complete the tag.

* Hard tags:- I've found several tags in Saints' that give you no button combinations at all. These are dead simple to do, once active just quickly press the 'A' button repeatedly and the tags done.

* How to exit tags:- If things goes bad for you and your being shot at quickly press Down on the D-Pad twice to exit the tag.

And finally the best way to take tags is to control the area first and that way no heat comes your way.

Hope this helps some of you lot, use the map above if you get stuck. I've resisted the temptation so far. Wink

Cracking Safes Tips and Info

* Busting a safe open is very similar to Tags as above, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

  1. Make sure you have at least one gang member watching your back,
  2. Have a fast car waiting by your chosen exit or an escape plan.

Now there are 4 stores you can bust open the safes in, 3 of them will give you cash and 1 will give you an item and a sub mission.
  1. Gun Stores will always give you cash,
  2. Liqueur Stores will also give you cash,
  3. Jewellers surprisingly will also only give out cash, however..
  4. Clothes Stores will give you an item and sub mission!

* So how does breaking open a safe work? Well quite simply like this:-
Pick a store to crack the safe with, you can either do this at night or during the day. I found it much easyer by day as you can just walk into the store and into the back without the alarms going off until you crack the safe. (Although I have done this without any alarms going off!)

Lets say your going to take on a Clothes Store during the day, get yourself a car and a few gang members and back the car up near the front door. Walk in and go into the back and find the safe..

How to crack the Safe

Hit 'Y' in front of the safe and you are presented with 5 options like so:-
  1. 15' turn left,
  2. 180' turn right,
  3. 15' turn left,
  4. 360' turn right,
  5. and B.
Now what you need to do is roll the stick slowly Left 15' and hold it at the end!! Then the next option lights up, while still holding the stick in the last position roll it 180' right and again hold it at the end of the roll. Keep doing this till you get to the last one and then quickly release and press 'B' and the safe should open.

* ...now depending on how long it took you to crack the safe depends how badly the police want you, at a guess you will be at 3 stars minimum. You now have the safe open and an item ready for pickup, grab the item and head for the open door.

Note that you cannot run or pull a weapon with the item in your hands, this is where your gang members will help you out taking the cops down. Run outside and put the item in the boot of your car and clear out any remaining cops and get the hell in the car and floor it!

By this time you will probably be a maximum wanted level! Now all you need to do is get to the drop point IE the Pawn Shop that springs up on your map, dead easy ah? Maybe not when you have swat vans across most of the roads. Wink

I recommend a fast car with 4 doors and 3 gang members with big guns, a cop car is good for this. If and when you get to the drop point get out the car and grab the item out the boot and run to the drop point and its all done. Smile

And lastly, if things goes tits up and your gang members get taken out leaving you in the fire zone! To exit the attempted safe crack Tap down twice on the D-Pad.

Cracking safes can be a real pain in the ass, but they can be good fun. Smile

Have a friend create a party and join it. Then, leave to go to your wardrobe. Remove all the upper body clothing not including hats. Then, go to the store and go buy an expensive item something platinum or jewelry. It will say that it costs too much but your character model will be wearing it to show you what it looks like with you wearing whatever you choose.Open up your friends list and join his game you will be wearing the chain or whatever you chose when in the lobby keep doing this until untill you get everything you want.

You may have to repeat for each outfit if you want to change your clothes later on, but the jewelry will always remain.

can anyone help ???????

ive been tryin to finish all the chop shop missions, i cannot find the la fuerza, it was one of the los carnales cars i think but i aint fot it in my garage. must ave took it out. im 89% complete. just have to do CD's and tags and a few hitman mission.

A tip for some ppl in the hitmen missions. when it says the person you are lookin for are in an unknown place the are normally ppl like ambulance driver (woman, just phone 911 she'll be right with u) or a FBI agent or a swat team guy. also one o the guy's, cant remember his name but he has his hands crossed behind his head hes is always driving about in a white limousine.

Hope this helps some ppl, n hope someone can help me.

THANK YOU

Go to the hijacking mission in the former Los Carnales area and activate Level 1.

After you get the car, press down on the d-pad twice.
