Turning your custom Boss into a powerful character in Saints Row is easy, especially when you equip Perks. There are heaps of upgrades to acquire in Santo Ileso, so here is a full list of all of the Perks you can unlock in Saints Row.
The Saints Row franchise has always enabled players to become extremely powerful. Whether that’s by using outrageous weapons or abilities, the Saints Row reboot gives players an array of Perks to choose from.
Each Perk grants the player a unique upgrade, so here’s a list of each one that we currently know about and how you can unlock all of them in your playthrough of Saints Row.
How to unlock Perks in Saints Row
After you created the Boss of your dreams and mastered the game’s Wingsuit, you’ll want to ensure you’ve got the best Perks activated. They can be unlocked in Saints Row by progressing through the game’s story and completing ‘Challenges’ along the way. To view your ‘Challenges’ you’ll need to follow these steps:
- Open up the in-game cell phone
- Scroll to the ‘Missions‘ app
- Select the ‘Mission’ app and go to the ‘Challenges‘ tab.
Here you will see every task that you’ll need to complete in order to unlock Minor, Major, and Elite Perks in Saints Row.
If you haven’t unlocked many Challenges, continue to level up your character by completing story missions and engaging in combat.
