    Infinite ammo weapons?


    Why the hell wasn't I informed?!

    Its not the weapons themselves that have infinite ammo, its the entire category of weapon that gets infinite ammo. Check the FAQs at Gamefaqs for which activities unlock what and get started. Dual SMGs with unlimited ammo is pretty sweet.

    You can get the best AR in the game if you perform one of each combat maneuver. I got that by accident. There is a combat maneuver list in the menus, somewhere, too.Infinite Rifle ammo: Finish all hitmen lists. It also apply to the Sniper Rifle. Best Shotgun and infinite shotty ammo: Complete airport drug trafficking. Do it coop, BTW, it's impossible solo.

    Aw, what the hell, here is a list of unlockables for you guys. There is an awesome interactive map there too. I think someone in this forum works on that site too.

    Note that if you quit the mission before level 6 the start point moves to the shore of the main landmass. That had me confused to all hell wondering where the activity went.

    I don't know what people are complaining about with the airport trafficking. All I had to do was ride shotgun, shoot the drivers of any pursuing vehicles dead, and clear the deal areas.

    I also made sure to pick the freshest car I could so it wouldn't blow up mid route. Only once on I think level 6 did they come fast enough that I had to bail between stops to escape a burning wreck.

    I dunno, does the xr50 AR do more damage than the m60?

    Because the m60 has twice the ammo, and you can't accidentally waste your satchel charges as grenades.

    So I take it they never released the DLC content for the pc version?

    Im running windows 7 (RC), and I seem to have a gamebreaking bug on my version (d2d purchase, but use through steam), when I go to load up the 2nd part of mission 5 from the ronin (agent orange or something), it goes to a cut scene in the airport and then tries to switch back to giving me control but the screen goes black, and i can hear lots of gunfire and running and screaming, but no actually "crash" and it only happens in this one spot....barring anyone knowing how to fix it....anyone know how to cheat to skip a mission?

    As soon as that cutscene starts, just hit Escape to cancel it and it should get you past it. I had the same problem and that worked for me.

    Morkath, the m60 sucks trying to aim at a distance. The xr50 in fine control mode I can snipe guys a pretty good distance away.

    It's especially good if you finish Septic Avenger and get the better accuracy thing. Much less spread when running and firing at the same time. Septic Avenger is one of the easier ones to finish, too.

    I just did the insurance scam ones to get infinite sprint. Pretty easy if you use a helicopter to get there and jump out over one of the bonus areas on a freeway. Then just jump in front of large trucks and use the controls to guide your flight path to stay in traffic. On the level 5 challenge I racked up 300k in a span of about 10-15 seconds by chaining my flight path in front of trucks and the last one hit me so hard I flew right off the freeway and dropped far enough to grant me even more points.

    Even if you dont have a heli, just make sure you enter the target area as close to a freeway bonus area as possible. Very doable early in the game and infinite sprint and less damage from vehicles is pretty nice.

    Now if only I could get 3 golds on base jumping damnit. I'm tired of dying from jumping off single story buildings.

    I got on the first try on my new game. Try holding down the S key while pulling a sharp left or right turn when you get over the bullseye. You should just float down in a really tight circle that will help keep you on target.

    You can save yourself some pain and just jump straight from the helicopter. Base jumping in SR2 has nothing to do with buildings and everything to do with landing on a parked car. At least that's how it worked in the 360 version, I doubt they changed it for the PC.

    It's a damn shame this game doesn't have a 'keys to the city' style addon. I'd love to play through from the beginning with everything unlocked.

    I actually wish during the game that the gangs were actually at war with each other and territories changed ownership. Then the missions would be different based on who owned that territory at the time you attempted it. Granted, it would have meant a lot more work for the game designers, but eh, I think it'd make it more interesting. Also, defending your territory seems way too easy. Should have toughened that up a bit, and made it so that if you didn't win it back in a certain amount of time the other gang took ownership back, leaving you with doing some sort of generic mission to re-obtain it.

    I wouldn't see the point. One of the problems with this game is that unlocking unlimited ammo with even just one firearm makes the game way too easy. I started a new game last night and within one session had unlimited pistol ammo, sprint, no fall damage, etc. With even just those three you are pretty much set for the rest of the game.

    A lot of the other stuff is really just pointless (why bother with weapon store discounts when you can unlock unlimited ammo?).

    Sounds a little too much like the gang war system in GTA: San Andreas ... which was just a huge pain in the ass. At least I thought so.
    One of the things I like about Saints Row 2 is that does make things pointlessly frustrating or annoying. No bullshit like girlfriends or having to exercise.

    Again, missions weren't really my concern. I just like having everything at my disposal when I want to fuck around, and I'd like the city to still be alive with other gangs at that point. But my wish has been granted and I have a second chance to do things right!

    Fuck yes! For $5 I can justify having 360 and PC. Also, for anyone else doing this, when it gets to the part that says:

    Your Activation Key is: blahb-lahbl-ahbla-hblah-blahb

    You can take that and enter it in Steam via the "Activate a product on Steam..."
