On this page, you can find all the Perks available in Saints Row (2022), the reboot of the action-adventure open-world video game developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver.

In Saints Row, you can find 3 different types of Perks: 

  • Minor Perks
  • Major Perks
  • Elite Perks

Exactly like for the Saints Row Skills, you can access your Perks Tree via the app on the in-game smartphone of your character at any point in the game. Once you're in the Perks app, you can assign your character: 2 Minor Perks, 2 Major Perks, and 1 Elite Perk.

You can unlock the Perks by doing some specific challenges. You can see the list of challenges in the Perks app on your phone.

But before assigning perks, you need to spend some money to buy the Perk Slots. Every Perk slot requires an increasing amount of cash to be purchased.

  • Minor Perk Slot 1: Complete a mission
  • Minor Perk Slot 2: $10,000
  • Major Perk Slot 1: $25,000
  • Major Perk Slot 2: $100,000
  • Elite Perk Slot: $250,000

Let's take a look at all the Perk abilities available in the game and their unlock levels.
