The Style Meter is displayed in the top right of the HUD. It displays two things: the current Style Rank, and the progress towards the next Rank, displayed as a yellow circular bar. When the Style Meter fills up, the Style Rank increases to the next level. Each Style Rank gives a 5% Style Bonus to the amount of Respect earned.
All Clothing, Jewelry, Tattoos, Vehicle components, Crib components and Stores owned give Style Points. The number of Style Points available to earn for buying each item is displayed next to the price of the item.
The statistics menu lists the current Style Rank and the total Style Rating, which is the combined number of Style Points earned during the game.
The maximum Style Rank in Saints Row 2 is 10, and it takes a combined 50,000 Style Points to reach. Once Rank 10 is reached, the Style Meter displays an empty bar which immediately fills with any purchase, but the Rank does not increase further.
As Style Points are always 10% of the price of an item, so there are no items that are "better value" for earning Style Points, it always cost $500,000 cash to earn the 50,000 Style Points needed to reach Rank 10.
|Style Rank||Style Points needed||Style Bonus awarded|
- It is possible to spend exactly $500,000 to reach Style Rank 10, by visiting Foreign Power and buying 8 Superiores for $60,000 each and a Vortex for $20,000.
- The in-game help menu incorrectly states that owning Cribs gives the player additional Style Points.
