of each item, preferable clearly showing the location it can be found.
Although at first limited in what the player can actually buy and take from Civilians and enemies, many ambient items around Stilwater are now usable as weapons, although their effectiveness is less than that of a real Melee Weapon. These items cannot be bought, and cannot be stored in your Weapons Cache.
Improvised Weapons can either be swung, or thrown, but will break after several uses. These weapons are featured in the Fight Club diversion.
|Barbell||Can be found in the Prison Gym.||Usually takes only one hit to kill someone.|
|Barrel||Can be found in open areas where garbage has been dumped, in the Factory District, or the Stilwater Power Plant.||Explosive barrel of toxic waste. Can be swung or thrown. Once a barrel is picked up, it is no longer explosive for some reason.|
|Basketball||Playground on the prison island||When you throw the basketball, the player will throw the ball as if it is a real basketball.|
|Blow-up doll||Multiple isolated places.||A sex toy. Sometimes humorously stated to be "the most powerful weapon"|
|Bones||Crystal lake in mount claflin, by the waste water fall in a small crevice filled with trees.||Once obtained, it will look like a "Jason" Hockey Face Mask, but when taken far away enough from its original position, it will turn into a human skull.|

- The Bones are an improvised Weapon and Easter Egg. It looks like the hockey mask worn by Jason Voorhees in the Friday the 13th movie series.
- They can be found near the lake on Mount Claflin. In a small crevice filled with trees.
- When taken away from its original area, it turns into a human skull.
- Basketballs can be found in multiple locations around Stilwater, including inside the Marshall Winslow Recreation Center, and near the Church of Cheese in New Hennequet.
- They have a special running and throwing animation, the button usually used to swing an Improvised weapon will instead throw the ball. There are usually basketball hoops nearby, but while it is possible to get the ball inside the ring, it is not possible to get the ball all the way through, and there is no reward.
- Improvised Weapons are not available in Saints Row or Saints Row: The Third.
