Saints Row: How to Get All Weapons and Guns


Volition’s Saints Row reboot is rife with combat. Most campaign missions, side hustles, and Criminal Ventures have you taking on plenty of foot soldiers from Marshall Defense Industries, Los Panteros, or The Idols, the three main forces vying for control in Santo Ileso. Your fists will only get you so far, so you’ll need access to an armory of weapons and guns to build your criminal empire. 

Luckily, there are plenty to choose from in Saints Row. Here, we’ve outlined how to get every weapon and gun in the game and included information on their Signature Abilities, including their in-game descriptions. Below that list, we talk about how to upgrade your weapons and guns, as well.

As expected, all weapons and guns have specific base stats. Some are more powerful than others, while some are better at range than close quarters. Perhaps unexpectedly, you can’t increase individual stats with weapon parts or anything of the sort. Instead, weapons have a preset hierarchy of three upgrades; some can’t be upgraded. 

To upgrade weapons and guns, visit any Friendly Fire location, and interact with the shopkeep to bring up the shop’s inventory menu. Highlight and select a weapon that you’ve already purchased, then choose “Upgrade” as the third option in the menu that appears to the right of that armament. 

  • Upgrade 1: $5,000.
  • Upgrade 2: $25,000.
  • Upgrade 3: $100,000. 

Those are all of the weapons and guns in Saints Row. Pair them with the best skills to become a Boss feared across Santo Ileso. For more tips, check out our other guides to building an unshakeable criminal empire
