This guide will cover the Gerrard "Subtlety Optional" assassination target, given to the player by the contact Angel, within the video game Saints Row: The Third, covering everything you need to know to complete this hit.

Target: Gerrard

Contact: Angel

Subject: Subtlety Optional

Location: New Baranec

Cash: $4,000

Respect: 500

Message: "Gerrard was dirty as a wrestler, but he's even worse since he left the ring. Much of the Luchadores' shadiest business passes through him. Pull up to his gas station in a car he'll admire ... he likes muscle cars, then kill him. No need to keep this one subtle. Blow up the whole station if you want."

This assassination target can be a bit tricky to perform, simply because of the special requirement, attaining an appropriate muscle car, which is needed to bring Gerrard out into the open. This will be your first task, and while technically any large V8 2 door car can be considered a muscle car, the game doesn't seem to agree. A good model of car to look for that will work is the Phoenix which has a grill shaped sort of like a Dodge Charger and can be seen in the pictures to the right. Finally in my play through I was able to find one of these vehicles driving through New Baranec, so you can search for said car in the target's gas station's vicinity.

When you have acquired one of these cars, drive right up to the point marked on your map, pulling into the gas station and wait a few moments for Gerrard to spawn. You will know you have the appropriate vehicle because the map maker will clear out as you drive up, a few moments before he spawns. Once he shows, Gerrard will be standing right next to you at the gas station. Take him out with whatever weapons you have, or like the message says, blow up the whole station. If you choose the latter, make sure to drive to a safe distance first as it will easily take your vehicle down in flames along with it if you don't.
