Saints Row IV Guide - How to Unlock the Energy Sword

The Energy Sword in Saints Row IV is like your very own lightsaber – but you have to earn it first. Follow this guide from Gamers Heroes if you’re struggling to find out how to unlock the Energy Sword in Saints Row IV.

The Energy Sword can be unlocked via Asha Odekar’s mission “Three-Count Royale.” Select it from the quest menu to begin.

Meet Asha on Ship

Exit the Simulation and talk to Asha on the ship. You can find her near the back on the lower level.

Complete Race

Enter the Simulation and head to the eastern part of Steelport – Burns Hill, near the Gothedral. Here you will race through the system — finish in 15 seconds for Bronze, 25 for Silver, and 40 for Gold.

As usual, be sure to grab the green orbs. When you get to the tunnels, take the left tunnel and get ready to swerve between the two.

Clear Out Zin Troops

Head over to the Flashpoint Asha directs you to. Freeze blast them and Super Sprint across them to get rid of groups of them at a time.

Upload Virus

Head over to the eastern part of Steelport – Ashwood. Here you will have to clear three waves of police troops. The first forces you to dispose of six, while the second and third waves force you to dispose of 10 soldiers. Use telekinesis on the cars and fling it at the police to dispose of them quickly.

Shut Down Hotspot

Head over to the Steelport – Sunset Park area to the giant Hotspot – you can’t miss it. Disable the three generators — be mindful of the turrets and the spawning portals. If you’re having trouble, use telekinesis to fling them off the platforms.

Once all three are disabled, head to the ground and take down the muderbots and turrets. If you’re having trouble, direct all of the troops to the other side of the controller and then Super Sprint over to the Controller to take it down quickly.

Meet Asha on Ship

Exit the Simulation and talk to Asha again. Congratulations – the Energy Sword is yours!
