Nathan Garvin

Information about the Crowbar in Saints Row, including how to obtain it, how to upgrade it and how to unlock its Signature Ability.

You can buy the Crowbar from any Friendly Fire from the start of the game. Itll set you back a mere $100.

How to Find and Upgrade the Crowbar in Saints Row

The Crowbar is a Melee Weapon in Saints Row, and it can be acquired by purchasing it from any Friendly Fire in Santo Ileso. Acquiring it will cost you a paltry $100, and it can be purchased as soon as you’re done with the Mission Making Rent.

As with all weapons, the Crowbar can be upgraded three times, depending on your level. At level 5 you’ll unlock the tier 1 upgrade, which will set you back $5,000. At level 10 you can upgrade this weapon to tier 2, which costs $25,000. Finally, at level 15 you can max out the weapon by upgrading it to tier 3, which is quite expensive at $100,000. Upgrading the Crowbar will increase its Damage and Damage vs Shield.

How to Unlock the Bashmaster Signature Ability for the Crowbar

All weapons have a Signature Ability, which will grant the weapon a special ability when its unlock conditions are met. Unlike normal weapon upgrades, you can’t buy Signature Abilities, which can include boons such as life leech, area-of-effect damage, knockback, full-auto firing mode, armor-piercing rounds, elemental damage and bonus damage over time, and so on. Once a Signature Abilities unlock conditions are met you can activate it by visiting Friendly Fire or using the armory at your HQ. Signature Abilities can also be toggled off, if you prefer.

The Crowbar’s Signature Ability is Bashmaster, which “Staggers targets for a longer duration.”. To unlock this Signature Ability you must “Stagger 250 Idols.” Just run around and thwack Idols to stagger them. You can wander around Idol-controlled territory along the northeastern end of Santo Ileso and terrorize any Idols as you stumble across them, but if you want a bit more controlled way of hunting Idols you can just summon them by repeating specific @TCHA Side Hustles. On the plus side,when you defeat all the marked Idols your Notoriety will be wiped, making this a simple, controllable way of farming kill. You’ll even gain bonus cash and XP for completing these Side Hustles! Lowering the difficulty and upgrading the Crowbar will make grinding this Signature Ability much easier.

You can unlock the Pinata Stick Visual Mod for the Crowbar by completing the @TCHA Side Hustle in Marina West. This visual mod is required to complete the [Fiestivities] Challenge.
