How to Complete the Castle Kraken Venture

Information about how to complete the Castle Kraken Venture in Saints Row, including details about the Dustland Beacon activity.

How to Unlock Castle Kraken

Castle Kraken is a Venture in Saints Row. You can establish this Venture after completing the Missions The Dustmoot (unlocks the Castle Kraken Venture) and Networking (unlocks the ability to establish new Ventures). Like all Empire Tier 1 Venture, founding Castle Kraken will set you back $30,000. LARPing is an expensive hobby.

How to Complete Dustland Beacon Events

Like with most other Ventures, Castle Kraken will, once established, generate you a passive income every hour. At first this is a mere $2,500, but should you complete all the Threats in the district where this Venture is located it’ll increase to $5,000/hour. You can further increase this passive income to $7,500/hour by completing all the Venture activities, which are unique to each Venture. The Castle Kraken Venture is the easiest to complete, consisting of only two Dustland Beacon events, both of which are relatively short and simple to complete.

You have the Dust Storm Beacon in the Badlands North region and the Phoenix Beacon in the Badlands South region. All you need to do is head to each Venture location, set the beacon on fire, then defeat waves of Dustlanders who arrive and attack. That’s really all there is to it, defeat a few dozen Dustlanders between the two beacons and you’ll complete this Venture (not counting the obligatory return to Castle Kraken to report your deeds, of course).

You’ll have to use Dustlander weapons for these events, including the [Dustlander Revolver], the [Dustlander Shotgun] and the [Dustlander Crossbow], and if you want to kill two birds with one stone, you’ll keep an eye on the They See Me Rolein’ Challenge, as this is a fine time to make progress on it… assuming you’ve completed the Mission [Drawing Heat], of course. You can also summon allies to help fend off the horde of Dustlanders, if you need the assistance.

Burn both beacons and battle the hordes of LARPers that respond, then report your deeds to the Loremaster at Castle Kraken.

Complete both Dustland Beacon events and return to Castle Kraken and report your deeds to finish this Venture. In addition to the rewards below, you’ll unlock the Mission The Rod Warrior and earn 5,000 XP and $30,000:

  • Dustlander Crew Outfits - two generic Saints crew models (male and female).
  • Dustrider - a unique motorcycle.
  • Costume, Dustlander - a Full Body outfit, equippable via the “Styles” app on your phone.
  • D20 - a Small Collectible.
