How to Unlock the Signature Ability for Every Weapon in Saints Row

Saints Row 2022 allows players to freely customize their characters, weapons, and vehicles. Customization options include custom mods, upgrades, signature traits, skins, and more. Here is a guide on how to unlock the signature ability for various weapons in Saints Row.

How to unlock a weapon’s signature ability in Saints Row 2022

Each weapon has a different unlockable signature ability in Saints Row. To learn more about this special feature for your favorite gun, you need to visit a friendly gun store. These shops are marked with a handgun icon on your map and are present in various locations.

Inside the store, interact with the store owner to view the list of available weapons. Scrolling through a weapon will display its stats, next to which there will be a signature ability section. It mentions what this special ability does and the unlock challenge, which must be done using this weapon.

For example, the KA-1 Kobra pistol has the signature “Aim High” ability that automatically reloads the magazine if you hit a headshot with the last bullets. Also keep in mind that once you unlock a weapon’s signature ability, you must first activate it from the weapon store to use it.
