The much-awaited Saints Row (2022) has finally released on the 23rd of August 2022 and we have to say it’s totally worth the hype. Developed by Volition and published by Deep Silver the game is already at hand for you to purchase on Epic Store. Additionally just like before Saints Row (2022) is also available on all major platforms Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Now we all know Saints Row is nothing without its missions, kills, vehicles, and obviously weapons. Talking about weapons Saints Row is filled with numerous of those and knowing which ones are the best out there will surely save you loads of time and money.
Saints Row lets you keep seven different weapon categories but since you can only hold one of each type of weapon at a time, you’ll obviously want to have the best ones and a well-balanced loadout to deal with different situations. So in this Saints Row (2022) weapons guide, you’ll get to know what a perfect loadout looks like. Thus without any further ado, let’s begin.
Saints Row (2022) Best Weapons
Here are some of the best Saints Row weapons in order to get that perfect loadout.
Best Rifle – AR-55 Burst Rifle
Undeniably one of the most reliable weapons in Saints Row is the AR-55 Burst Rifle. This Rifle is a perfect fit for almost every combat situation thanks to its excellent accuracy. Be it a long-range battle or a close one AR-55 Burst Rifle is quite effective with its burst. With its signature ability, the rifle will allow you to take down any moving object like vehicles quite easily. You can push yourself to upgrade the gun to make it even better, it might be costly at first but will definitely recover its cost in the long run.
Best SMG – TEK Z-10 SMG
Unlike Rifles, SMGs are not so great when it comes to long range. However, in close battles when you are surrounded by enemies TEK Z-10 is definitely a dependable SMG having much better accuracy to take down enemies. Because of being an SMG it also has a lightweight meaning you’ll be able to move more easily. Make sure to keep on upgrading this SMG from time to time to unleash its special ability which will allow you to bleed and stun enemies as well.
Best Big Gun – RPG Launcher
The only downside of RPG Launcher is that it does not have infinite ammo, otherwise no other weapon would be as fun as RPG Launcher. To show your dominance you can always use RPG Launcher for its explosive and vehicle-busting abilities. You can attain this weapon after completing Be Your Own Boss mission.
Best Special Weapon – TOGO-13 Sniper Rifle
Although special weapons are not so dependable and are quite situational TOGO-13 Sniper Rifle fits perfectly with the rifle recommendation above and is one superior option when it comes to other special weapons. Because special ammo is hard to come by on the streets of Santo Ileso, this weapon’s signature ability will grant you more ammunition after you score a headshot.
The TOGO is a large, powerful sniper rifle with excellent accuracy that is obtained after finishing the Drawing Heat assignment, and being a sniper rifle TOGO-13 will allow you to cover a much larger distance when it comes to long range.
Best shotgun – MDI-50 Tac Shotgun
You will have to sacrifice accuracy and long range if you’re using Shotguns, however, having a hold on one of these during a close-range attack can make you deadly. Because of its rapid-fire rate, we discovered that the MDI-50 Tac Shotgun was by far the most user-friendly. Its signature ability fits well with the TEK Z-10 since it can stun and electrify opponents as well.
Best pistol – KA-1 Kobra Pistol
Although it might not deal the best damage, its unique ability, which instantly refills the magazine with a headshot, is an excellent way to ensure that you never run out of ammunition.
You might be confused why this beginner pistol that we get literally at the very start of the game is under the best pistol heading. The reason is that as a general-purpose handgun, it does practically all tasks, dealing considerable damage at a mid-range with decent accuracy, and with its special ability as discussed earlier you won’t have to worry about running out of ammo.
Best melee weapon – Axe
There is no such competition between the melee weapons as they all go well with any loadout. However, we recommend going for Axe due to its decent damage and bleed capabilities, the Axe is a fantastic pick for a melee weapon in Saints Row and once you’ve unlocked its signature ability, each hit you score will grant you a tiny bit of health, thus the more harm you deal, the more you’ll recover.
Finally, there you have it, a perfectly balanced loadout. We will make sure to keep on updating this Saints Row weapons guide article if we find better weapons since we are also still discovering.
