Saints Row Threats

Threats in Saints Row are denoted by the Red diamond on the map and the brass knuckles icon. Each of these locations will have a different gang or faction in the city for you to fight: The Idols, Los Panteros, Marshall, or the Police.

You won’t always be fighting other enemies, although most of the time you will be. Some of these Threat activities ask you to destroy a van or maybe some drones, with no enemies around. Although, some may come and attack if you take too long to complete the objective.

When it comes to Threats in individual districts, each district that contains a Threat activity has a total of 5. But, some of the more rural districts don’t have any at all.
