Glitches and Fun Stuff
Fast vehicle repairs
(1) To repair any vehicle quickly, just use Guerrilla Express while inside your vehicle. The vehicle can now be found in or near the camp you traveled to, with no damage.
(2) Exit a vehicle near the end of a mission. Successfully complete the mission, and return to the vehicle. It will be fully repaired.
(3) If you hijack an EDF tank, you are unable to heal it by teleporting to a safehouse. In fact, the tank disappears. You are however able to heal tanks or any other vehicles by going to a demolitions master. Leave the area during the event, and you will fail. After the challenge ends, you should have a full health EDF tank where you left it before the challenge.
Fixing overturned vehicles
Exit a vehicle after it overturns. When it is on its roof, walk near it, and re-enter it. Repeatedly tap Enter Vehicle, and the vehicle will turn over with its wheels back on the ground.
Southeast of the Badlands safehouse near a large group of ore is what appears to be a Mars Exploration Rover. It is marked as a vehicle on the map, but cannot be controlled or destroyed.
If you kill your brother, Dan, at the very beginning of the first mission, you will die instantly, but the death message reads "WTF? You killed your brother?"
Red Faction references
The area "Parker" of Mars is named after the protagonist in the original Red Faction. The area "Eos" of Mars is named after the Faction’s leader in the original Red Faction.
Saints Row 2 references
When you are around people, they will sometimes say things about Ultor, which is the company from Saints Row 2. They will also say "Damn drones confiscated my Feed Dogs collection", which is the band from Saints Row 2. Also, the area "Mt. Vogel" of Mars is a reference to Dean Vogel, whom you had to kill in the last mission of Saints Row 2. You also only get to enter it during the last mission before the campaign is complete.
