Saints Row how to get XP fast

There are a number of ways you can get XP fast in Saints Row. They are:

  • Complete main story missions
  • Place criminal ventures
  • Complete criminal venture quest chains
  • Complete Side Hustles
  • Finish Threats
  • Complete challenges

Main Story missions are by far the easiest way to gain XP and it should be your main focus for about half of the game. From there you can continue through the campaign or begin expanding your criminal empire (if you haven’t already done so).

Placing criminal ventures and completing their quest chains will reward you with XP for each mission and you will get a nice big chunk of XP as well once they are fully complete.

Side Hustles and Threats award varying amounts of small slices of XP which are a nice bonus, especially if you are working on open-world activities.

Finally, albeit not the most lucrative, there are some easy challenges you can focus on and complete to get some easy XP. These challenges aren’t always ones you would have earned by playing naturally. But devoting a few hours to completing some of them can help you increase your rank quicker than if you weren’t paying attention to them.
