To defeat Maero the first time on top of his hideout, shoot him with an RPG. Land a direct hit to make him go on one knee and stay down. You can then shoot him until he dies. If he gets up, just keep shooting him. To finish off Maero in the arena, use some of the rockets to blow up all the trucks except for his. Use extra rifle ammunition to shoot his Monster Truck.
Get a sniper rifle and go inside Stilwater Memorial Hospital, which is where you spawn when you die. Look around the walls for a couple of posters next to each other, such as on the wall to the right where you walk in. Zoom in on the messages and read them. Half of them have strange messages, such as "Please no: Singing, Dancing, Roller Skating, Smoking, Fishing".

Go to the music store and boy the song "A-HA" under the rock section. Jump in a car and pause game play, then go to the radio option, add that song to your playlist, and save it. Resume the game and select the Myradio station. The song will play and the achievement will unlock. It is rather amusing to hear your character sing along.

To defeat Mr. Sunshine in the factory, use a rocket on his voodoo doll to knock him down and inflict damage. Hit the doll once to break his shield, then shoot him until he reaches the bottom floor. Note: If he completes his ritual with the voodoo doll, it will send you flying and do lots of damage.

To defeat Akuji, make sure that, before you start the cinematic to battle him, you first clear the room below you of any Ronin resistance. Once the match begins, move to the stairs that you walk up before to get to that deck. Begin walking back down and make sure Akuji is falling you as you go. As you go back down stairs, there will be a location on the ground scorching with fire. Make sure you are a decent distance around the fire and try to make Akuji catch on fire. This depletes much of his health. You may only need to do this about three times to kill him.
To kill Akuji in the tea house, use L2 to counter his attacks. It inflicts damage and knocks him down. When he is down, stab him twice rapidly before he gets up. Repeat this until he has been killed.
Play through the prologue again to see what this boat looks like. It is the boat that you and Carlos escape on. In order to acquire this craft, you must fly a helicopter (with missile pods) and hit it once or twice. Do not worry about it blowing up as six missile hits are needed to set it on fire and seven missile hits are needed to destroy it, making it one of the strongest vehicles in the game. When you enter a Convict, your wanted level will go up a lot but it will not add stars. You will also not lose wanted level while in one. The best place to find this vehicle is near the prison. There is another version of the craft, but it is hard to find and resembles a fishing vessel.

Use the flaming zombies as a weapon while letting them follow you when they come at you. Run into large crowds of zombies so that the flaming zombies can set the other zombies on fire, which will then count as kills for you. Use headshots for the small zombies. This also saves ammo.
Go to the Fuzz activity in the Projects District and get to the bank robbery section, which should be on level 3 (where you have to chase the Titan).

To remove police and gang notoriety, car jack a vehicle with a passenger and start a "hostage diversion". Stop the vehicle and allow the hostage to escape. After the hostage leaves, both the police and gang notoriety will be gone.
Go to the "Nobody Loves Me" store at the mall and scan around the T-shirts on the tables racks. You will eventually find a plain white T-shirts folded down with the Volition symbol on it, and "Volition" written backwards above the logo. Note: The T-shirts are not wearable.
At the Stilwater Boardwalk in the Hotels & Marina District, open your map and locate a long building with the "Branded" clothing store and "Charred Hard Burgers" restaurant on either side of the building. When you get there, look for a wide entrance marked "North Shore Marina Super Mall". Go through below it and look to the right for a doorway, then proceed all the way through the doorway to find a room with walls showing the Volition logo, and above it the words "The Game Studio".

Also, if you listen closely or turn up the volume, you can hear some sort of jazz music as if it were played through an intercom.

Go to the south side of the nuclear power plant where you can see two roads encircling a green circle on the map to find a toxic waste dump pool. Go inside to find barrels and cars sunk inside. Swim over to the caged-off sewer tunnel to find blow-up dolls, and one floating around you. Swim around the center and look below to find two skeletons inside and laying around the old cars, and one trapped in a picnic bench. There are also some big fish swimming under you, which is rarely seen unless you are in a secret area such as Volution Island waters.
Enter the police station in the Saints Row District, then enter the building and take the first door on the left through the security scanner. After going in a room or hallway, look at the wall with the most wanted list and several stands across the wall. Look closely at the pictures. You will see a list of your homies and what resembles the Brotherhood gang leader on the far left picture. A drawn picture of your character is also there. Note: You may first need to complete the game.
Follow the arrows that start on Ruins Island. Ruins Island is close to Super Secret Island, with the Volution Easter Egg on it. You will begin at Ruins Island, then an arrow points to Lookout Island, then to a small unnamed island, then to another small island with an "X" on it. Get on it, and you will teleport to a ring of arrows pointing to a floating Easter Bunny.
In the cinematic that plays on the menu screen, one of the commercials features a man jumping around and talking about money. The phone number at the bottom of the screen is for the "Give $1000" cheat code.
Find and store a couple armored trucks in your garage. They will respawn in your garage again when they are destroyed. Blow a truck up to get money from it. After collecting the money, return to your garage and get the truck again. It may cost $600 for repairs but you should get at least $1,000 for destroying one.
To easily gain money, rip out every parking meters and newspaper boxes you come across. They will give you a couple dollars each.
In the Museum Of Flight in the Museum District, go upstairs all the way and walk down the skywalk here. Note: You also must go here for a Ronin mission. Once up here, walk around looking up at the ceiling. You will eventually see a ship model up on the ceiling. This is a model EDF ship, the "Assault Aircraft - AAX" built by Ultor and to be used in the upcoming Red Faction: Guerilla game.
When first starting the Zombies Uprising mini-game, look around the beginning location. You will see a red arrow that has fallen and is pointing up and down leaning against a wall in the right back corner. Walk up to this arrow, then crouch and turn around and proceed to hold Away so that you keep moving into the wall. The zombies will not move at all. Use headshots to take out the smaller ones. When there is a shortage of zombies on the screen, get off the arrow for a couple seconds and use the opportunity to have the zombies respawn and to collect more ammunition. You can kill most of the zombies by doing this. You will have to find the last few, but the mini-game will be very easy.

Quit the mission and you will keep the car. Note: You cannot do this from a clipboard replay.
There is a big area just north of the island the airport is on, which contains three large mansion-like houses. On the gate/archway into the area there is writing that reads "Palacio De Mentiras". In English this translates to "Palace of Lies".
