Fast Travel isn’t unique to the Saints Row game. If you have played a few games, you’ll know that it is quite common. Some games give it the name of fast travel, whereas others come up with their own names. A fine example of this would be Elden Ring’s Site of Grace.

For the big maps, video game developers have had a solution for a long time. It is known as Fast Travel. You can get access to Fast Travel mode early on in the game. That is, you can travel to the church headquarters or your apartment as soon as Fast Travel becomes available. But, if you want to travel to other locations on the map, you’ll have first to unlock them.

To unlock them, your character will have to go there and take a picture of that spot. We’ll tell you in our guide how you can do that easily. So let’s get started.

Unlocking Fast Travel In Saints Row

The Fast Travel points on the map of Saints Row are marked like in any activity in the game. To get access to these fast travel points, you’ll have to pass near them by car or on foot. With that, these points will show up on the map. You still can’t use these points for Fast Travel.

Once these points come up on your map, you need to go to them again. There, you’ll have to use your in-game camera phone and take that points picture. Here’s what you need to do to unlock these fast travel points in Saint Rows.

Travel to the foot of the Fast Travel point. Open your camera phone when you get there, and select the camera app from the top row. Then, you’ll have to position yourself, so the photo subject gets lined up. Then, use the camera to snap a picture of the landmark.

If this were a success, you’d have that landmark available as fast travel on your map. But, not everyone gets the right picture on their first try. Some people make the mistake of missing some important part of the landmark. Believe us, and we had to try twice for a few of these landmarks to get it right.
