Triad XP is one of the three different ways to earn experience points in Sleeping Dogs. To maintain his cover as a Triad, Wei will have to partake in some heinous acts. Violent actions such as lethal kills (deadly environmental attacks) accrue Triad points. If the cops look down upon it, chances are it'll help you level up the Triad section. Racking up Triad points allows the player access to relevant upgrades, just like Police XP and Face XP.
