Tips and tricks to be the best boss!

In Saints Row reboot, you play as the Boss, starting the Saints' criminal enterprise from scratch as you work your way to the top. Starting in Saints Row can be challenging; not only do you need to create your character, but the game also contains several activities and leveling mechanics. Here is our beginner's guide with tips and tricks for Saints Row.

Best Tips for Saints Row Reboot

  • The best way to level up and unlock skills is to complete Missions and Side Hustles. These activities give the most experience and will enable you to level up quickly. Increasing your level will unlock Skills that are a vital part of combat. You can have four skills equipped at once.
  • You can buy new weapons at the Friendly Fire store. You can purchase clothes at several small stalls throughout the city.
  • You will unlock new vehicles and weapons at levels five, 10, and 15.
  • Cash is the main currency in Saints Row, and you will use cash to purchase weapons, vehicles, clothes, perks, and upgrades. Cash is earned by completing any activity; however, once you unlock the criminal enterprise, you can earn cash passively by investing in your business.
  • Perks are passive bonuses that will give you various buffs. Use the Perks app on your phone to unlock perk slots with cash. Major and minor perks are unlocked by completing challenges. You can view available challenges in the Mission app under Challenges.
  • You can hijack any vehicle in the city and take the car to your garage to unlock it permanently. At your garage, you can also customize your cars.
  • You should complete vehicle and gun challenges to unlock unique upgrades for the item. These can be special ammo rounds or abilities.
