Saints Row may be a wacky open-world laugh-fest of a sandbox where you can commit all kinds of unbelievable acts (and crimes), but that also means that there is no shortage of quests and activities to be tackled solo or with friends. Completing these activities also causes you to level up your character and unlock new abilities on the Saints Row skill tree as you play.

Unlocking the game’s abilities is an important endeavour because it allows your character to use new skills and tricks as they build up flow and roar around the rural landscape.

Our Saints Row skill tree guide will tell you all the skills you can unlock and what level you have to reach to gain access to them. As if the series wasn’t crazy enough, how do you feel about unlocking an ability called Pineapple Express or maybe flipping about like you are Spiderman?
