In the new Saints Row reboot, earning money is relatively straightforward, with numerous activities offering substantial rewards. Here, we’ll highlight the most efficient methods to earn money quickly.

Key Takeaways
  • Money is essential in Saints Row for buying weapons and upgrades.
  • Earn money by eliminating threats in each district of Saint Ileso.
  • Establish Criminal Ventures by completing the Networking main mission for significant income.
  • Main missions are crucial for earning unique weapons, vehicles, and money.

One of the fastest and easiest ways to earn money in the game is by making Threats. The name of the activity can be a little bit misguiding. You will not be making any threats for money, but you will be clearing threatening people from territories for the most part.

These are really simple and fun to do. The best thing about them is that they are very small, and you can do them even faster if you have extra useful weaponry. Bringing a rocket launcher along can do wonders. 

You can make about 5 Threats in each district of Saint Ileso. Most of these just involve going somewhere and killing something, but there is the occasional stealing a stash from the rival gang. Before you can make Threats, you will need to have a Criminal Venture in the area.

Criminal Ventures are a top money-making method in Saints Row. You can set up these ventures in specific areas, and they generate income automatically over time.

Each Criminal Venture provides a steady hourly income, unlocks five Threats, and offers exclusive quests for extra earnings. To build them, progress through the story, complete the Networking main mission, and be ready for a substantial initial investment.

Although the cost may seem high, it’s worthwhile. With multiple Criminal Ventures, you’ll see a significant increase in money without additional activities. Just remember to regularly transfer the earnings from your phone’s banking app to your personal account to avoid losing funds.

Complete Saints Row Story Missions

Completing Saints Row’s story missions is an effective way to earn money, as they offer substantial cash rewards. These missions are crucial for unlocking other money-making options mentioned earlier. It’s advisable to focus on the main story missions initially to accumulate funds and access additional opportunities.

The money earned from these missions can be used to buy impressive weapons, unique vehicles, and exciting items in Saints Row. Some of the best weapons and vehicles are introduced in these missions. While some main missions may feel repetitive, they are essential for quickly accumulating money in the game.

Side Hustles

Now the last most effective method to make money fast in Saints Row is doing Side Hustles. They are a classic Saints Row activity and have always been very useful. Most of these are very simple, fast, and straightforward. 

Most of these include riding shotgun during heists or stealing something via a helicopter. All of these are simple, and some of these are even fun. Just like most of the stuff in the game, though, they will get repetitive fast, and you will still have to force yourself to do them. 

Other Less Effective Methods To Earn Money 

While the previously mentioned methods are the most effective ways to earn money quickly in Saints Row, there are still several less effective methods you can explore for additional income. Keep in mind that these methods won’t yield as much money as the earlier ones, but they can be useful when other options are unavailable or when you’re looking for a change of pace.

  1. Doing Crimes of Opportunity: Keep an eye out for money bag icons on your map, which represent Crime of Opportunity activities. These activities involve going to a designated location, eliminating rival gang members, and looting their stash. While relatively straightforward and readily available, they may become repetitive.

  2. Using The Wanted App: Access the Wanted App on your in-game phone to take on bounties. Accepting a bounty will require you to locate and eliminate the target swiftly. This method can be effective, especially since it’s accessible early in the game and offers a $5,000 reward per bounty.

  3. Going After Armored Trucks: Look out for random events involving armored trucks carrying cash. Pursue these trucks when they appear on your map, then destroy them to earn a significant amount of money. This is a straightforward and easy method to accumulate cash.

  4. Go Berserk: If you’re looking for a more chaotic approach, unleash mayhem by taking out your favorite weapon and causing chaos in the game world. Engage in intense combat, blow up vehicles, eliminate civilians, and confront law enforcement. Collect cash drops from the ground, with the most significant rewards coming from fighting the police. While this can be entertaining, it can also deplete your resources quickly, so use it as a last resort.

These methods offer alternatives for earning money in Saints Row, but they may not be as efficient as the primary strategies previously discussed. Use them when you want a change of pace or when more lucrative opportunities are unavailable.
