If you're looking for all the latest information on the Saints Row wingsuit, this is everything you should know. Being one of the game's best traversal tools, it's well worth putting in the time to learn. This being said, there are plenty of things about it that the game doesn't teach you.
In this, we go over how to work the Saints Row wingsuit, how to upgrade it, and some general tips for when you finally start to fly. There's a lot going on here that may take you a while to fully grasp.
How to get the wingsuit in Saints Row 2022
In Saints Row, you don't have to do anything to unlock the wingsuit. It is instantly unlocked from the start of the game. This being said, the game doesn't tell you that. You just have to know how to use it.
There are a few central ways to use the wingsuit. If you want to use it while in the car, hold triangle or Y to get onto the roof, then just tap the jump button and you will start flying.
You can also choose to jump off a great height and hold the jump button as you fall. If you aren't into either of these options, around the city you can find weather stations that can boost you up and into the air. It's a great way of traversing the world and an even better way of scoping out extra objectives.
How to upgrade the wingsuit in Saints Row
Upgrading the wingsuit is a thing that will happen as you play the game. It's not optional and you don't have to pay for it, unlike the game's weapons and cars. Instead, you will naturally get them alongside certain missions.
As you upgrade your Saints HQ, you will get slightly better controls and a new aesthetic. You can also purchase new wingsuits to change the look but they don't tend to change how effective they are.
Some wingsuit tips
The wingsuit can be a little unruly when you start. If you come in too hard, you will die hitting the ground. You have to pull up and hit the left trigger to slow that descent. This being said, the game goes easy on you in regards to fall damage.
If you're driving in a car and need to get into an area without roads or across a wall, using your wingsuit from the car is one of the best ways of doing so. It gives you a speed boost, puts you up pretty high and sends you hurtling at a high speed. The wingsuit is a really good tool for traversal if you know what you're doing. Get comfortable with using it and you can get around the city easily.
