During the challenge to defeat Los Panteros, a rival gang of the Saints, you must enter the headquarters and eliminate the members of the enemy gang. However, his character, The Boss, is constantly on fire. That is, activating the ability to resist fire in this case significantly reduces the damage taken.

In addition to defeating rival gangs, it is necessary to fight cops while walking around the city. During vigilante battles, players can pick up enemy shields and weapons to use for their own defense. In direct combat, there is a set of combined blows (kicks with grenades, series of punches and others).

The player can use up to eight different types of weapons in battle. There are six weapons, including pistols, rifles and machine guns, in addition to the punch and a melee weapon, which can be a hammer, for example.
