If you’re looking to survive the mean streets of Santo Ileso, you’re going to need to upgrade your guns. Saints Row gives you a few different options when it comes to customizing your weapons, and you’ll want to make use of everything it has to offer.
Here’s a closer look at upgrading your weapons in Saints Row, along with how to customize their look and unlock special abilities.
How to upgrade your weapons in Saints Row
Saints Row can become surprisingly difficult if you’re not upgrading your weapons. Upgrade tiers are unlocked every five levels, with each upgrade bringing more firepower to the battlefield (and costing more money). Here are the three upgrade tiers and their associated costs.
Tier 1 (Level 5): costs $5,000 per weapon
Tier 2 (Level 10): costs $25,000 per weapon
Tier 3 (Level 15): costs $100,000 per weapon
Note that these upgrades are per weapon – if you want every weapon in your arsenal to be Tier 3, you’ll be spending well over a million bucks.
Once you’ve got the funds and have reached the appropriate level, head over to your local Friendly Fire store to start the upgrade process.
Step 1: Head to Friendly Fire. These can be easily spotted on the map by looking for an icon with a gun in the center.
Step 2: Enter Friendly Fire and talk with the cashier.
Step 3: Select the weapon you’d like to upgrade. At the bottom right of your screen, you’ll see the stats that’ll increase when upgrading to the next tier.
Step 4: Click the Upgrade button to confirm your purchase.
