If it helps people further, I dd this with the prize box glitch where if you follow this guide, get your first rare box but instead of restarting the section, go to options, storage location, click B to return back without picking a location, click b again so you continue and then you restart section. What that does is that you get ur rare box again and the previous one sticks. I got the tripwire method working where I only need one more ribbon per section so was getting a rare box every minute.

Note, cleared the cache as well.

Does this actually work? Cool!

EDIT: This did not work for me.

EDIT2: This DOES work. I must've just been doing it wrong. THANK YOU for posting this. Got all my gold skins now.

geez i dint think my thread was gonna stir up such a commotion between users lol. Anyways, u dont have to clear your cache, its optional if u would like but not neccessary. I was actually really glad i found this trick as i am like on me gold rank and rare boxes require 1000+ ribbons to unlock each. Anyways im glad this method has helped u guys. Take care guys

im still struggling with this method.
  • So i delete player data
  • go offline and delete cache
  • boot up the game, goto the level where you use the trip wire
  • keep reloading from last checkpoint until i get a rare prizebox
  • soon as i do, start>storage>B,B,B > restart section
am i doing it wrong?

You don't have to go offline to delete the cache. It will push you offline when you refuse the update after you have delete your cache.

Time from time, when you reach some number it will pop-up in game, showing you how many you need to the next prizebox, sadly you canīt find it anywhere else - in menu or something, which is pretty stupid.

This worked beautifully. I farmed about 30 boxes and unlocked gold and ribcage skin for all weapons and my second last box I opened was the gold character skin! Talk about luck!

Im on my gold rank and rare boxes take forever to achieve now so i was messing around last night and stumbled across a method that allowed me to earn epic/rare/normal boxes MUCH faster.

1) Delete your GOW:J player data from your HDD then disconnect from your internet so u can play offline. If u did it correctly once u start up GOW:J your rank will now be reset to level 1, but dont worry u can revert back once u reconnect back online later.

2) Now that you're level 1 all boxes will be much faster to attain. So what u wanna do now is to play campaign and earn as many ribbons as u can to attain rare boxes. I suggest last act, section 4 or 5 im not sure, the one where u can use the trip wire crossbow to rack up trip wire ribbons easily. While going for the ribbons u will be racking up on kills and experience which will go towards normal/epic boxes. When i was doing this last night i probably was able to net around 25-30 ribbons a playthrough. Trick is to get as many ribbons as possible with the tripwire crossbow and then the rest of the enemies try to bag and tag them with frags. Each enemy u kill with a bag and tag awards u with a ribbon so it really adds to your ribbon count.

3) Once u have earned as many epic/rare/normal boxes as u want finish the section and exit to main menu. Check to see all boxes u have earned, now just go back to your dashboard and reconnect to internet and boot up GOW:J as normal. Once u enter the main menu u should be reverted back to your old rank with everything else such as ribbons/medals intact. But now u will have some boxes that will reward u with skins only due to the TU2 patch. If u still dont have enough boxes for the golden skins just repeat from step 1.

Sorry for not posting a video of my method for im not really good at the whole techno stuff lol. I just hope i was thorough enough and if u have any questions just msg me via xbox live GT: dkykong. Also im looking to boost the new dlc chieves now that i have the required gold skins.
I Love you.

I did the trick no problem. Cleared my cache, moved my player data to my memory card and also removed the card, started game and declined update, and grinded ribbons/kills/levels. I also used the trick to choose your storage location and make the boxes go faster (even had a point where every time I chose my Storage Location, it gave me an Epic prize box :P)

After I got plenty of boxes, I just signed back into live at the main menu, which told me to update the console. After I did that, I still had my level and progress, as well as like 50 prize boxes. Now I have every possible skin in the game, so I'm ready to do that damn Golden Artifacts achievement. If I can figure out how to get it to work, then it can't be complicated. Not sure what you did wrong Renegade, as I wasn't there when you did the steps.

Your problem and your problem only pal. You should have used USB/Flash drive, every DAMN time you do something like this. Also, didn't restarting the game help? Because first of all after doing this I went to dashboard and connected to internet there, not right in the game after doing it - that may be the problem somehow.

I'm considering doing this for my last skins I need for my weapons. I already have all the golden ones, but still missing a few. Worth a try I guess, after making a backup first.

Works an absolute treat! I'm not clearing my cache because I'm busy finishing up some GoW2 achievements but getting 50 kills via the Tripwire boosting method on Act 4-2 (or 3?) then going back online, opening prizeboxes, disconnecting and repeating works a charm.

Thanks OP, awesome solution.
