Every weapon has a different unlockable signature ability in Saints Row. To learn more about this special feature for your favorite weapon, you need to visit a Friendly Fire Weapon Store. These stores are marked with a handgun icon on your map and are present at various locations.

Inside the store, interact with the shop owner to bring up the available weapons list. Scrolling over a weapon will pull out its statistics, next to which there will be a signature ability section. It mentions what this special ability does and the unlock challenge, which needs to be done using that weapon.

For instance, the KA-1 Kobra Pistol has the “Aim High” signature ability that automatically reloads the magazine if you hit a headshot with the last few bullets. Also, remember that once you have unlocked the signature ability for a weapon, you need to activate it from the weapon store first to make use of it.
