When you play through Saints Row, perks are plentiful – to say the least – and there are tons of them to unlock as you complete challenges. But, one question remains: what are some of the best perks in Saints Row for the minor, major, and elite slots? Well, we’re here to give you something of a definitive answer to that question.

There are a lot of skills to choose from, sure, but only a few really stand out as the best – and they’re not unlocked too soon either.

But, we can help make sure you’re using your time effectively; you just need to check out our recommendations below.

Saints Row best perks

Alright, let’s get stuck into it. These are the best perks in Saints Row:

In The Flow

In The Flow is unlocked pretty early in Saints Row and it is a solid choice for the minor slot! This will keep your flow intact at all times, stopping it from going down, and therefore allowing you to use your skills more.

Dead Eye

Dead Eye is probably the best minor perk. You should be getting headshots if you aren’t already and landing them with this equipped will dramatically speed up your reload for a brief period.

Loot Grab

Loot Grab isn’t the strongest perk out there, but it is handy to have if the other minor perks don’t suit your build or playstyle. It allows you to automatically pull in cash and ammo, which should keep you stocked up!


Our first major perk suggestion is Scavenger. This is a great addition as you will grab more ammo from ammo boxes you pick up in Santo Ileso during fights.

This guide will be updated once we have unlocked all of the perks, so keep an eye out as we don’t have our full list of suggestions just yet.

That covers all the best perks in Saints Row. If you want more tips and recommendations, our Saints Row walkthrough has everything you need to know about the game with tons of helpful bits of information!
