By   /   Aug 23, 2013

XP can be earned for almost everything anything in Saints Row 4. Whether it be small task or a daunting one; you do something, you get XP for it. XP can be earned by completing challenges, activities, missions, hacking stores, and clearing flash points/hotspots.

Performing stunts also grant XP like driving in the oncoming lane, near misses, and executing power slides/drifting. When not in a vehicle, XP can be earned by performing a combo of jump chains. XP can be used to buy new upgrades for your abilities.
