Mayhem Missions are missions that villains may undertake in which there is a primary mission assigned with a short time limit and numerous secondary missions assigned that grant additional time and various bonuses. Secondary missions include destroying equipment and items in the zone and side missions unlocked by defeating certain enemies within the zone. In addition, each mayhem mission zone contains an exploration badge marker.
Mayhem Missions are obtained from brokers.
When a character has a mayhem mission available, he or she will receive the following note:
This is a Mayhem Mission. You can earn extra time by destroying property and creating diversions away from the bank itself.
Each type of item rewards a single time bonus after you destroy a certain number of that item. For each person on your team, you will need to destroy more of that particular item to get the time bonus.
Random side missions can be found on the map. Keys (found by defeating certain enemies) are needed to unlock these side missions. Each completed side mission also rewards a time bonus.
Every character that is at least a minimum level receives a special temporary power the first time they successfully complete this mission.
Mayhem missions are assigned based on the level of the character as follows:
- 5 - 9 : Atlas Park
- 10 - 14 : King's Row
- 15 - 19 : Skyway City
- 20 - 24 : Steel Canyon
- 25 - 29 : Independence Port
- 30 - 34 : Talos Island
- 35 - 39 : Brickstown
- 40 - 44 : Founders' Falls
- 45 - 50 : Peregrine Island
Note that at levels divisible by 5 (10, 15, 20, etc.) it appears to be possible to get either of two different missions for the ranges above or below the current level. Which of the two is offered each time you visit a broker appears to be randomly selected.
You gain bonus time for destroying objects. Once you destroy the requisite number of objects of a given type, you gain bonus time, but you will not gain any additional bonus time for destroying more of them. In addition, you will not gain bonus time from destroying objects after a successful bank heist (though you will still get time for completing side missions and resisting arrest). Keep in mind that some objects won't be worth destroying at the lower levels; for example, it may take you longer than one minute to destroy a PPD Swat Van.

|Large Metal Crate||15||265||1||1:00||none|
