Saints Row: The Third

Saints Row: The Third Achievements

Flash the Pan

Destroy all Gang Operations in Steelport.  

The Gang Operations are represented by an icon of a fist. After completing a Gang Operation, you can see that portions of your map have turned from grey to purple.

You can tell where Gang Operations are located by bringing up your map and heading to areas that are still seen as grey. However, the icons for some Gang Operation missions will not be see on your map so you have to fly or drive around the grey areas of your map until you see a large group of gang members in one area. Kill them all and it will count as completing an Operation.

Note: The Gang Operations can be completed easily after obtaining aerial vehicles with mounted weapons.

Really that's your advice? Actually no whatever is not purple after you complete ALL activities and have beaten the story HINTS at gang locations. You'll still have to search them out though. You can guess before that based on how close activities are to to areas not purple

Port Pryor op is offshore on a boat. The backwards "L" shaped territory in the center hood is slighty off to the east. those r the only tricky 1s.

Try doing all the activities first. It's much easier to see on the map where the locations are that way.

There is one on top of a skyscraper which isn't always that easy to find.
Also a few around the edge of the map on a boat n' those kinda areas.

@ #8 - the map will tell you how many gangs have been flushed out of each area - that should narrow it down a bit.

Don't use the special ability to take over a territory in the main menu. i did that and i haven't received this achievement. My guess is because i didn't actually destroy all gang operations myself.
