Im not sure if this has already been documented but thought it might help a few people.

For this you need 2 controllers and a character with 50 silver keys.

1. Load your profile with 50 keys on to your second controller

2.create a new xbox profile and load fable 3

3.skip the cutscenes and choose your character/clothing.

4. instead of going to elisa/the other guy go down the right hand path towards the 50 key chest

5. press start on your second profile and use that character to open the chest.

6. use your 1st character to LB gift the weapon to the 2nd character

7. after it has saved sign out of the first profile and create a new profile

8. press b to return to the fable main menu and repeat.

It takes roughly 5 minutes for each legendary weapon so if your lucky this is a lot quicker than completing the game over and over again, it also gives you more weapons to trade with if required.

Hope this helps

After reading it twice, I finally understood what you are meant to do and I think it will actually work.
Very nice find and thanks for your support to the community!

it works the only issue is that there is a very good chance of getting duplicates as every time you create a new profile it resets the weapons for that profile. in about 30 minutes i got 10 legendary weapons and about 5 different ones. its still a very good way of getting extra weapons to trade with pretty quickly.

You have to create a new profile as the weapon drops aren't random after a save has been created. they are the same for each playthrough by the looks of it.

5 new different weapons in 30 minutes might still be very useful.
Some players might eventually find that one weapon they still need

This only proves how stupid the fucking achievement is tbh, sure its a nice little trick to fuck the system but it only shows how good the game community is when it comes to down to being forced to help others.

Does erasing the all saved data for that gamertag work or by creating a new profile do you mean it has to be on a different gamertag each time?

just create a new local profile. i named mine "a" and then added an extra a everytime i completed it. deleting the data seems to work also but its easier to just delete all the profiles after.

I seem to only be able to get chickenbane,dragonstomper,swinging sword and sandgoose at the moment so im starting to think the chests arent as random as i thought

Thanks for this info man, it's been a pain getting the legendary weapons and then i deleted some of my DLC and now i can't load my fully completed saved game.

So, grabbing 50 keys then doing this seems much more simple.

I remember this having been said before, but too long ago for anyone to remember it. In all likelihood, this shouldn't get you 50 legendary weapons, just rare weapons that have been tagged as possible prizes for that one chest.

Think this may be the case. Thus far I've only been able to get 3 different weapons; Dragonstomper .48, Chickenbane and Swinging Sword. Anyone got any others from the chest?

So just get your 50 key guy to follow around your newbie to a few different chests then.

hey does anybody have the achievement for the legendary weapons and is done playing the game. I was wonder if someone could help me with the achievement.

If there are only 4 different weapons you can get it might not be as useful as I thought ..

Someone tried this already? You should make a video and send it to me in an e-mail. I think I know what you mean, but in a video it should be more clear.

Does it works now?
Since I have been getting the same weapon over and over again (even if I create a new GT), I think they patched it (since the person who opens the chest it's the same you will get the same weapon)....

I don't think it could be any clearer.

Would XBL be a factor? Meaning is there a chance a different weapon could appear offline?

Also is there an easier way to access the main menu? I end up reverting back to the dashboard each time...I know its petty but loading this game on an elite takes a while.

EDIT: Nevermind signing out does the job. I was just worried about the game saving.

Now I think that for the same hero, silver chests contain always the same weapon...

Wouldn't you also get different weapons depending on how good or evil you are too? For instance, if you play through the game being completely good you've got pretty much no chance of getting Skorm's Justice...maybe you guys who are only getting four or so different weapons should go on a mass killing spree and then try it again?

Forgive my ignorance (I'm new to Xbox), do you need to set up another on-line account to do this or can your "guest" account work?

No this method doesn't work. The chest only yields a range of 3-4 weapons.

I keep getting "chickenbane" even though I used two new profiles. My main profile got "the sandgoose".

i'll have to give this a shot, even if i get some duplicates of rarer weapons, makes them easier to trade

Hey Xeno, were you able to get this to work? I may need to give it a try as having some extra trading weapons never hurt:woop:

I started a new profile again, but this time I got "the sandgoose". I tried this on multiple saves and kept getting this weapon. The odds of getting the same weapon is pretty high. Dragonstomper is the only weapon I need in the "50 silver chest" and I feel that its going to take me a long time to get it.

Just my 2 cents. I opened this chest on 5 different profiles following this method and came up with Chickenbane EVERY time. My guess is its been fixed so only one weapon out of the 4 possible can be acquired when stealing from this chest. In other words, this method wont work anymore. However, the duplicates you recieve can be traded.

Xenolith666

I tried this method, and here's what I saw.

It didn't matter if I was a male or female character, but if I chose the "Practical Prince/ess Outfit) I would get a Chickenbane.

If I chose the other outfit (the fancier one) I would get a Sandgoose.

It could have been a coincidence, but I used 3 different profiles and got the same results.

I would also suggest that if anyone does this method, create just 1 profile, then when you've opened the chest and saved and exited; just go to your hard drive and delete the character save for that profile, then load it up again. It is a good way to get extra weapons for trade.

Thank you!!! I stopped playing the game because I didn't want to go through the collectible achievements all over again (the Gargoyles and Keys were a pain in the ass in Fable II). It kinda put me off a little bit -- but now, I have renewed hope! I'm definitely gonna try this out.

FYI, I tried this method about 10 times this evening and got the same weapon each time. I guess it's been patched.
<RANT>Especially annoying given that last time I traded online, my save game got wiped (46/50). The time before that someone ripped me off and left the game without giving me a weapon in return. There really should be an escrow feature for this kind of thing.
I'm now 40/50 and rather reluctant to go back online to fill the gaps. Then again, the idea of replaying until I get the rest is hardly filling me full of joy... </RANT>

I have been trying this method with multiple profiles using the prince and princess and the elegent and practical suits and using different characters that have the 50 silver keys. I seem to only get the dragonstomper .48 at night and the sandgoose in the morning, could just be coincidence though.

I've just tried it and it's wiped my save game. Again.

I know the achievement was meant to be hard, but this is getting ridiculous.

NiBium
05-30-2011, 11:12 PM
Scratch that. Found both "lost" save games under the "Load" option in the Sanctuary. Why the hell it's started new games unprompted is beyond me. Anyway, after a bit of swapping between profiles, it feels good to be back to 47/50.

Trying again without the patch - this time I'll backup my USB drive first. ;)

Right, sussed it. Fable won't load my 50-key save games into the second player's pre-patched game because they were created after the patch. That's why it was creating new ones.
It does give you a bit of a shock when it says "Saving..." then your character appears in a practical outfit with no weapons. A message prompt would have been nice.

Triple post? Really?
Your first post has an edit button.

Any idea when this patch would have come in?
As I played properly through three saves and got a different weapon each time. If I tried that now would it effect me?

NiBium
05-31-2011, 12:24 AM
Apologies for the triple-post. Didn't know it was bad etiquette. My bad.

Regarding your three saves: I don't think it'll work if you've already been playing with the patch applied. When I tried to load my saves, I got a message saying that it couldn't due to the different game versions. Applied the patch, then I could load my game - but obviously that patched the exploit and so was useless.

I think that in order to make the exploit work you need a 50-key save game from before the patch. Haven't tested it, and I don't think I'd want to given the time involved. All this comes with a disclaimer that it's pure conjecture based on my experiences tonight.

Good luck!

Been trying this today, and i can confirm that it still works.

Sometimes you get duplicates but so far i've had the swinging sword, chickenbane, the sandgoose and the dragonstomper 48.

I'm on player5 so far, so imma have a few more attempts if i can get that hammer.

Read the primary post correctly, but for those still confused. Step by step (really step by step)

1. Log out,
2. Turn on second controller.
3. Log main profile (the one you use primarily) in using controller 2.
4. Pick up controller 1.
5. Make profile using controller 1.
6. Start fable using controller 1.
7. Skip the cutscenes put on your suit and head for the silver box.
8. Pick up second controller and press start.
9. Open box using second controller.
10. Accept weapon on controller 1.
11. Trade weapon with your main character (controller 1) save and exit.
12. Go to xbox navigation on controller 1 (central shiney X button) and log out profile 1.
13. go back to fable main menu (B)
14. Make new profile using controller 1.

Rinse and repeat.

Hope you get the sexy weapons,

Greets Naz.

P.s. The box does seem to be limited to about 5 or 6 weapons, but these are otherwise the most difficult to get as the shops don't sell them.

can you only get 4 weapons out of that chest? :confused:.. how should you be able to get the rest of them by yourself? .. dont tell me you have to trade -.-

what I did was just using a second account and just play through the story, logging in my primary account whenever I found a silver chest or a new weapon. It's alot more time consuming, but alot less boring
