Saints Row 3 Trophies Not Popping | Why are my achievements glitched?

Disconnecting from the internet seems to disable achievements and trophies or at least make them very buggy. This means that you should not go into rest mode on either the PS4 or Xbox One versions of the game. Do not resume the game from sleep mode. Close it when you’re done with your session and start it fresh every single time. This will will assuredly be the reason that your console is disconnecting from the internet.

This is a very weird glitch with an admittedly simple fix, but it’s not exactly new. This same glitch was in the original release of the game. However, it was quite rare back in the old days of the previous generation. Now consoles have rest modes so this bug is going to hit more people because of how many are going to kick it out of sleep to play this game.

Be sure to stay online if you want your trophies or achievements to pop. And be sure to have multiple back-up saves in case you do run into issues. You’ll need them anyway to get the “Kuh Boom.” and “Tower Defense” trophies since those require you to make two different decisions. It wouldn’t hurt to make more along the way.
