As soon as you reach Criminal Empire Tier 2 in Saints Row's Business Ventures, you'll be able to acquire the Eurekabator! business, enabling you to research a selection of useful new gadgets. Among them is the Thrustbuster, a football-shaped explosive that sends anything it's attached to spectacularly rocketing through the air before blowing up. To unlock it, you'll need to complete the second Alpha Test for the Eurekabator! research team, which first involves melee striking test subjects using RS/R3 to stick the Thrustbuster to them.
The next phase, at time of writing, doesn't have an objective marker, which may lead you to think that the mission might have glitched. Don't worry, because it hasn't. Facing the first shipping container that housed the three test subjects, look up to the left, and you'll see two more shipping containers on the warehouse rooftop, with a further six test subjects. Easy to miss, no? Anyway, you now need to throw the Thrustbuster directly at each subject to enter the third phase – a field test.
Said field test has you taking the Thrustbuster on to the streets, where you'll be blowing up Marshall soldiers and vehicles, until the Eurekabator! eggheads feel you've used the gadget to cause enough mayhem to pass the test. Complete that, and you'll be able to add the Thrustbuster to your arsenal, and set about using it to wreak complete pandemonium across Santo Ileso. Enjoy!
