In a recent preview, we got our hands on a whole range of Saints Row Weapons in the upcoming reboot. Eclectic weaponry has always been a staple of the Saints Row series, so we were keen to catalog every single bespoke murder-option the game has to offer.

Though the Saint’s Row reboot has potentially dropped some of what made it so appealing (as per our Saint's Row preview), many eagerly await the August 23 release of this reimagining of the iconic series. Despite Saints Row seeing delays, the title is imminently set to release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Stadia, the game is poised for a high-profile launch. Aiming to walk a fine line between the zany and the surprisingly serious, it’s safe to say that the reboot is ambitious.

If tweaking with Saints Row's free character creator wasn’t enough, our list of 24 weapons we discovered in the preview will give you the fix you need while you wait for the release. From crowbars to SMGs, a vast buffet of delectable options awaits the discerning weapon enjoyer. So sit back, relax and enjoy our list of all the killing machines we’ve discovered (so far) in the Saints Row Reboot.

This single-shot rifle packs a serious punch, but it's slow to reload. Best not to miss. 

Saints Row Weapons: shotguns

This accurate, rapid-fire shotgun makes up for a lack of damage output with sheer speed. 

MDI-50 Tac Shotgun

An automatic, double action weapon, the Tac shotgun packs a serious wallop, if you can keep it pointed in the right direction.

Small but deadly, this classic SMG lets you spray-and-pray with impunity.


Saints Row Weapons Guide, TEK SMG

Somewhere between a traditional SMG and a rifle, this weapon sacrifices fire rate for accuracy. 

D4th Blossom SMG

The D4th Blossom has a rate of fire bordering on the obscene. It's a great weapon, provided you don't mind where your bullets actually go.

Easily the classiest SMG, the 1921 Johnson is refined, sophisticated and versatile.

This shocking addition to your arsenal offers a more humane, but no less impressive solution to your problems.  

MDI-39m Sixguns

Sometimes, you need the ruthless application of blunt force to get the job done.

Great for delivering that killer strike. Batter up!

That covers it for every single weapon we've seen in the new Saints Row (so far). We can likely expect a lot more, on launch, but that's certainly plenty to mull over. No matter your preferred means of violence, come release day, we're sure you'll be able to find a weapon to suit your personal tastes.
