Fable 3

Fable 3 Achievements

Crime Spree

Get a 15,000 gold bounty placed on your head.

Bounty can be earned in many ways:

  • Breaking into locked house's
  • Robbing shops while people or the shop keeper can see you
  • Attacking the town guards and other none violent NPC's with any attack or weapon

Just keep doing this until your bounty is up to 15,000. When you become king and ruler of Albion no one is going to try and arrest you! You also need to stay in one region to make it count. Leaving will void the achievement making it reset to 0 Gold. The best place to get a bounty on your head fast is Bowerstone Castle!

If you haven't done it when you become the ruler then you'll have to get this in another player’s world as your ruler status is ignored when away from your save.

this one is very easy. I just went to Brightwall and kept killing villagers and soldiers until I got my fine up to 15k.

Might be interesting to note that after you're king, it's very difficult, if not impossible, to get a bounty placed on your head.

Haven't been able to get a bounty since I've been Queen. Will probably have to play through it again.

Another achievement that is rendered impossible if you're King/Queen. (I just tried to get a bounty. Apparently, as king, I'm above the law).

I think it's a nice addition that you can't get bounty as a king. Really fills you with a great senese of empowerment. However, it's really annoying that I'd have to start again and go through the intro.

This achievement is attainable after you become King/Queen but not in your world if you know somebody that also has the game you can go to there world and start killing and get the bounty very easy to do.

I like the idea of going to someone elses world to do this, is it possible to go to my other account on my xbox that has a save before being king/queen and join with a second controller locally on my main account that I want the achievement on?

yeah... so I tried killing everyone for a really long time. The bounty
meter never started, I figured it was another great glitch. o'well, I
was planning on playing again anyways.

Comment #13 by Sheepdog
Monday, November 22, 2010 @ 03:55:23 AM

If you do this in co-op, your bounty is separate from your partner's, so make sure you're the one getting all the kills. The bounty has a time limit, but it's definitely not a problem, so if you run out of guards/villagers to kill, just quick travel somewhere else, then quick travel back. Keep in mind that bounties are separate per village/city.

This achievement CAN be done when you are king/queen as I just did it. The bounty counter will not pop up but it still keeps track of the bounty on your head. Go to Brightwall Village. Kill all the civilians and break doors/windows. Then just run from the library to the entrance killing the guard respawns until the achievement pops

I agree with the Brightwall method, after becoming King, just mass murdered
everyone and ended up killing between 55-60 guards.

Bowerstone Castle is a good place to go if your being a 'good' character because
knowone else knows about the crimes but the people there, and its quite a useless
district. Just keep fast traveling back and forth till you get it.

Hey I'm having trouble with this achievement. The bounty I have is 1570 gold now, but the achievement hasn't popped! Anyone know if this is bugged etc. or if I just need to carry on killing for a while to finish it off. Thanks in advance!

Saturday, February 19, 2011 @ 12:18:38 AM

Another confirmation that you can get it as King/Queen. It keeps track despite not showing the counter. Also you can go to the Dashboard as soon as it pops so it wont Autosave by changing area and permanently scar your world and reputation.

Earned both a 15,000 spree by myself in Brightwall AND in a friend's world along with him in Brightwall too - neither of us got the achievement :/ I was queen in my world, but he wasn't, any ideas?

Comment #35 by Henry VIII
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 @ 12:02:59 PM

Also confirming it is possible to get as King. I did it as #16 describes, just running back and forth and killing everybody you see. It does take quite long which can be quite discouraging because you don't actually know how far along you are, so just hang in there. I actually almost gave up because it took so long, but then it suddenly popped.

Comment #36 by Chipsonfire
Thursday, March 24, 2011 @ 11:22:06 AM

I found that if you start off by stealing something really valuable (a legendary weapon or expensive clothing set works well) you get a hefty fine right off the bat. My gf actually got the achievement by ONLY stealing an exceptionally expensive set of clothes.

Comment #37 by fn2bnd1
Monday, May 09, 2011 @ 06:09:05 AM

you don't have to be arrested or stopped by the guards. once you've hit 15,000, simply let the guards knock you out and it will pop up, then once you reagin your stature, you're given the option to pay fine or do community service etc.

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 @ 10:58:02 AM

I think miss enigma had the right idea, I wouldn't be happy with some randomer joining my game without my permission on a good save, and killing my villagers, in fact they would get a very quick kick if they did. On my evil save however..

Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 10:19:25 PM

Cheers jpitts.

Sadly most people don't read they just want their hand held.

I've not played this game for a while so continued with the quest i was already on, turned out it was Traitors and then the ship to Auora, just panic'd because i realised this was the point of no return. I meant to have enough gold at this point too but i'll just not advance the main story after becoming king and just do sidequests and buy houses for a few hours.

If you are king/queen already it shouldnt be that hard to just start a new
game and kill few dudes. :P

Comment #52 by TheCJWilde
Tuesday, October 11, 2011 @ 01:53:04 PM

I was Queen, but I took the advice of #16. I ran back and forth through Brightwall for a while, shooting every villager, guard, window and door I could see. The guards refused to arrest me - if I stood by them, they'd just tell me it would be 'double standards' to arrest me and cower in fear - but, it still popped after about ten minutes of utter carnage. Definitely the most fun achievement I've done so far!

Comment #53 by Styl0
Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 05:43:34 PM

Think about it people. When you're King / Queen who's going to place the bounty on your head? Yourself? Don't be daft.

Of course you're above the law when you're THE FREAKING RULER OF ALBION AND AURORA. Derp.

Thursday, December 29, 2011 @ 11:43:06 PM

Killing the guards in Brightwall worked well for me as King. Although, I did go all the way from good wings to evil wings (about 5 minutes beyond actually). I shot windows/smashed doors and killed as many people as I could, guards being my main prey. I can also confirm dashboarding out works fine, no one knows I slaughtered hundreds of guards in my world.

Comment #60 by xdarkstar38x
Monday, January 16, 2012 @ 03:06:40 PM

Another confirm for comment #16, works as king/queen. Shock/Ice Storm Gauntlets let you shoot out windows easier than using a gun. Guards respawn at entrance and to the right and left side of the "Stylist shop". Just run around buck wild, took me roughly 10-15 minutes using this tip.

This is really hard to do! But after reading this, I think I figured out why. I waited until I was Queen. Oh well, this is my third time playing through, I think I can handle one more time.

Comment #63 by Event Control
Monday, February 13, 2012 @ 05:10:10 AM

Just go to Brightwall Village (As King or Queen) and run from the entrance to the Library killing the Guards. They will keep respawning and the Achievement should pop up after a while, be patient with it as it took me about 10-15 minutes.

Saturday, April 28, 2012 @ 08:00:46 AM

This can't be obtained once your ruler, since you can do whatever the hell you want then. If you're already ruler, then go to a friend's world (make sure they know what you're going to do or they might kick you out).
Anyway, best way to do this is in some place in Bowerstone. Kill everyone, steal everything in all of the shops and homes, break down every closed door, shoot or smash every window and every now, go into a shop or home until the owner tells you to leave and then calls the guards, commit a crime whilst drunk, use negstive expressions against a villager multipke times, commit a crime before doing your community service, complete Whrezone or The Man Who Knew Just Enough. Basically go and let all hell break loose.
If you do this all in one town and don't do any quests, after get

Definitly works in bright wall as king. Go at night steal all weapons clothing furniture. Break all windows, kill all people, steal from people's homes. And after killing a handful of guards after that it popped.

Comment #72 by Major Monogram
Friday, March 01, 2013 @ 01:45:20 AM

Took me about an hour and fifteen. I killed almost all the native villagers in Brightwall (left a couple witnesses just in case), stole everything out of every store, broke every window and closed door in town, and then killed scores and scores of guards from the entrance to the academy.
What a long, tedious slog. If I had known how long it was going to take, I wouldn't have bothered.

Comment #73 by andrewnungester
Saturday, April 20, 2013 @ 10:03:28 AM

took me like 20 minutes. just wasted everyone in the markets and when guards appeared i wasted them and when the achievement popped up i Dashboarded it.

also, my gf got this after she became ruler. dont ask me how. i got off work and got home and she was just wasting everyone and i asked her why and she said cause she could and i told her she cant get this achievement cause youre Queen and she ignored me. 10 minutes later it popped up

Comment #78 by pyoobez
Friday, June 28, 2013 @ 09:28:12 PM

Got it same as 73 in the markets. I'd recommend doing this as soon as you get access there but before you buy all the shops. That way you can go around stealing everything and breaking into houses. I stole from the pawn shop as it was the only one I could. Forgot about the houses and just killed villagers and guards. Dashboarded it as soon as it popped up.

If you have a few hours to spare. Then load the game, and instead of picking to load your game from the hard drive, start a new game on cloud storage (or other attached drive) Get to brightwall and go a killing. When ach pops. Exit game, load your normal game file and carry on as you were. No damage done to your normal world and gets around the being king/queen issue

Dont do what I did and attempt this achievement the moment you are free to roam around Brightwall with have the mindset of continuing to play the game. That's a shit load of pies to make since you cant open the chest for Pie Maker level ups yet. I shouldve just restarted the game but Im stubbern.
