Fable 3: The 10 Best Weapons In The Game, Ranked

Developer Lionhead Studios’ acclaimed RPG Fable 3 improved upon its predecessors in many ways. The game, which is only available on Xbox 360 and PC(Windows) features a gorgeous landscape backed by an interesting story. Fable 3 is widely hailed for the interesting ways in which it approached traditional Fable mechanics, namely morphing. The combat was also overhauled with the addition of many new weapons and classes of weapons. Another distinctive feature when it comes to weapons was that they were randomly placed.
