All Saints Row skills and how to unlock them

Everything we know about the Saints Row skills at every level now we've had a chance to play the game, including anti-gravity and exploding punches

A list of all the Saints Row skills

Looking for all the Saints Row skills? We’ve spent a good amount of time with the open-world game, and have seen some of the focus skills available at each level. You get a new skill every time you level up, and you can equip up to four of them at a time.

True to form for the series, these Saints Row skills are silly, ranging from dropping a grenade down an enemy’s pants to a powerful and explosive fire punch. To equip them, you need to access the skills app on the snazzy in-game smartphone, and you can combine them with Saints Row perks to make your character unstoppable.
