Saints Row 4 – Weapons Guide

How To Upgrade and Customize

Weapons can be upgraded at Friendly Fire stores where you would also be able to customize them. Each gun has different set of upgrades. Weapons are upgraded with cache which increases as you get to higher level upgrades.

You will note that some guns really begin to shine when you install certain upgrades on them.

Note: There are achievements/trophies for maxing out any gun in the game and customizing every gun on your radial dial.

Homies Preferred Weapons

Your homies will come to your aid whenever you call them using your phone.

You can also recruit members from the crowd and get them at your side. These members will have their own preferred weapon and their attributes/abilities can be improved by completing missions, side-quests, and challenges.

Completing loyalty quests for your homies will also grant them super powers just like yours which comes in handy. The preferred guns for your homies are:

  • Kinzie – Pump action shotgun
  • Keith David – Automatic rifle
  • CID – Droll comments
  • Matt Miller – Quickshot pistol
  • Shaundi – Heavy SMG
  • Fun Shaundi – Heavy SMG
  • Pierce – Automatic rifle
  • Ben King – Heavy pistol
  • Asha Odkar – Heavy SMG
  • An Old Friend – A big knife
  • Super saints backup – Super powers
  • DJ Veteran Child – Automatic rifle
  • Maero – Automatic rifle
  • Tanya – Heavy SMG
  • Julius – Automatic rifle
  • Rowdy Roddie Piper – Wrestling skills
  • Cyrus Temple – Laser rifle
  • The Genki Girls – Various

Bare Handed Combat

Even if there is no weapon available, POTUS is an amazing fighter with all those super powers. Sprinting towards an enemy and then beating it down is one of my favorite attacks. Frozen targets can be destroyed by hitting them with super charged kicks.

Riot Shields

Some enemies advance and charge upon you with riot shields which give them cover.

You can either use your TK ability to snatch their riot shields or attack them from sides to defeat them and then take the shield yourself which protects you from enemy incoming attacks and let’s you fire by staying in the cover.

You can go along the game pretty easily if you know what you are doing even without any weapons at your disposal.
