"The Saints. One of Travis' pet projects. Elite female assassins specializing in large scale covert operations. Working in pairs, they strike hard and fast, leaving no witnesses and no bodies. Their presence here tells me only one thing: Travis is getting desperate."

  • With seven targets to be killed, "Attack of the Saints" has the highest number of targets of all Absolution missions.
  • In the objectives screen, the mission image depicts an eighth Saint.
  • A trailer for this mission was released, but it was merely cinematic having no similarity to gameplay. Also, similar to the objective screen, there are 8 Saints members, rather than 7.
  • This is the first mission in game that you encounter ICA members who are hostile to 47.
  • The civilians involved in the "Intervene" challenge are scripted to be killed only by the ICA troopers involved in each scene. Any other soldiers or Saints lured into their location will ignore them. Also if the player is spotted doing any act (such as dragging bodies, being visibly armed etc.). The civilians would not react to the player (like alerting enemies in most missions) since the player saved them. 47 will get "spotted" though and there is no way around this other than to get out of the civilian's sight before he spots him. On higher difficulty, its almost impossible to save the civillians without getting spotted.
  • The motel owner can be saved without 47's cover being blown, other NPCs will not react even though he will thank 47 for saving him.
  • The description for the "Intervene" challenge; Come with me if you want to live, is a reference to the quote from the Terminator films.
