Gateway functions SRIV

Gateway functions

A Gateway provides access to Crib features in Saints Row IV.


A Gateway is a glowing blue doorway. The first Gateway is unlocked after completing "The Real World".

They can be used to access The Ship, as well as the Wardrobe, Garage, Weapons Cache and Gang Customization.

Like Cribs, Gateways function as spawn points in Virtual Steelport. When loading a saved game, The Protagonist spawns at the closest Gateway to where the game was saved. When entering The Simulation from The Ship, it is possible to choose which Gateway to use.


There are 10 Gateways in total. 5 are unlocked through the storyline and other 5 are unlocked by completing Side Quests.

  • Gateways may be based on the Monolith from the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well the holographic doorway in the series Quantum Leap.
    • Kinzie's "White Room" Side Quests which unlock Gateways may also be a reference to the white Imaging Chamber room from Quantum Leap.
  • Using a Gateway to exit and re-enter The Simulation reduces to the time it takes to travel to the other side of the city.
