This is a list of Weapons in Fable III. Most of these weapons can be found entirely randomly inside the various chests and stores throughout Albion (see below), so there is no one place to find a particular weapon. This does not apply to a few weapons, such as The Bonesmasher, The Tenderiser or the Gnomewrecker, which are always found in the same place. Note that while there are 50 total weapons in the game, every Hero has around 26 weapons that can be found depending on decisions made; the rest must be traded for via Xbox/GFW Live or during co-op play.
In addition to the Legendary Weapons listed below, there are also four Hero Weapons found in the Sanctuary during the quest A New Hero. You are given the Hero Sword and the Hero Hammer, one of which you need to choose to equip at the time. Later, you can choose between the Hero Pistol and the Hero Rifle. They cannot be sold to pawnbrokers, nor traded with other Heroes, and are always available in the armoury of the Sanctuary.
- Avo's Lamentation - A sister to the legendary Avo's Tear, this weapon was forged at the same time, but was lost for centuries.

- Not used in achievement "We need guns, Lots of guns"

Legendary Weapon Locations
- Up to 12 of the 24 available common weapons can be found in the main towns' weapon shops, four in each:
- Brightwall Village – Brightwall Blades
- Bowerstone Market – The Iron Hoof
- City of Aurora – The Armoury
- In addition, the following location contains the same common weapon in every playthrough:
- 7 of the 14 available uncommon weapons can be found in the following locations:
- Mourningwood – Silver Chest (10)
- Millfields – Silver Chest (20)
- City of Aurora – Silver Chest (20)
- Mistpeak Valley – Inside the Demon Door.
- Sunset House – Inside the Golden Door.
- Sunset House – Reward for completing the puzzle Shot the Difference in the pristine side of the house.
- Mourningwood – Reward for a score of 2000 or more at the Mortar and Mourning challenge.
- 3 of the 8 available rare weapons can be found in the following locations:
- City of Aurora – Inside the Demon Door.
- Ossuary – Inside the Golden Door.
- Auroran Mine – Reward for completing the Temple Goddess puzzle.
- In addition, the following two locations will contain the same rare weapon in every playthrough:
- Brightwall Village – Upon completion of Gnomes are Evil!, always Gnomewrecker.
- The Dark Sanctum – Reward for completing the Sanctum questline, always The Tenderiser.
- Two of the four relic weapons are assigned to your profile. They can be found in the following locations:
- Bowerstone Castle – Silver Chest (50)
- Sanctuary Treasury – In the chest with the riddle "You must climb a mountain of gold then lose it all to know me." This is at the bottom of the gold pile. See here for how to open it.
- You'll always get the same weapon from these that you got on your first playthrough.
- Henchmen can carry over Silver Keys from their original Gamertag's game, so Silver Chests can be opened early. Including the Bowerstone Castle Relic Chest.
- Sometimes any weapon may appear in a shop or random location.
- Sometimes a random weapon may appear in a rare location.
- Sometimes the same weapon may turn up in two places; this often applies to shop and random weapons, but has also happened (rarely) to relics, where the Treasury and the 50 Key chest have held the same weapon.
- Despite every account only being able to loot 2 different relic weapons in their own universe, every account also has one third roll that can determine the outcome in another players world/universe. Example: When having looted and determined 2 relic weapons in your own universe, if the player visits a universe where at least 1 relic roll has not been determined yet, then the third roll will trigger and will roll a weapon that has not been rolled on yet. However, if both relic slots in this universe are still open, you risk that both relic spots will have the same loot.
example 1 (player 1 unlocked the sanctuary and rolled the dragonstomper -> this will determine that the castle chest will not be the dragonstomper -> player 2 joins the world, has unlocked the sandgoose and the swinging blade in his/her own universe, AND HAS NOT determined a third roll before-> chickenbane will roll being the only available option.)
example 2 (player 1 hasn't unlocked the sanctuary -> player 2 joins the world, has unlocked the sandgoose and the swinging blade in his/her own universe, AND HAS NOT determined a third roll before-> the result will be either the chickenbane or the dragonstomper -> if the sanctuary contained the dragonstomper, it will not alter its roll on that since it has been determined already when the account started the game for the first time. The roll in the castle only takes the unlocked options from the opener into account in this case and thus has a 50% chance to be the dragonstomper as well. once this third roll has been made, the outcome of the roll when opening the chest in other universes will solely depend on that universe itself, not on your own universe's roll.

These weapons do not count toward the "We Need Guns, Lots Of Guns" Achievement
Melee weapons lack the range and can be blocked by enemies. However, they can damage multiple enemies at once with every strike, and can block other melee attacks. They are most effective in tight spaces against more than one enemy. Guns are unblockable and has significant more range, but they need to be reloaded and is less effective in tight crowded spaces.
Fable III has less weapons than the previous two installments, but each weapon's magic are now directly tied to it rather than as an external augmentation. Certain swords, hammers, and carbines are able to inflict shock or fire damage once levelled up.
