    The achievement is pretty self explanatory outside of where to find everything needed.


    Here is what you'll need and where to find it:

    1. Dress - There are several pieces to this full suit that you'll need. I personally had the upper dress, lower dress, and dress gloves. All of which can be bought from the stores in South Bowerstone, North Bowerstone, and Oakvale. Not too difficult to find. Go into your equipment and equip the full suit.

    2. Beard - Go into the Stylist shop in South Bowerstone and purchase any beard that covers your chin. I believe the mutton chops don't count but I used the normal beard and it worked fine. Any of the bushy beards should also work.

    3. Redhead Wig - This can be found in the Darkwood Bordello. The passage is in Darkwood Lake. Hire the services of one of the prostitutes to get access to the upstairs area of the brothel. After you're done doing your business, search the cabinet in the back of the room for the wig.

    4. Crossbow - Easily found by the time you are able to do this. You should have one already in your equipment but, if not, they are purchasable in Oakvale, South Bowerstone, Knothole Glade... anywhere with a blacksmith, basically. It doesn't have to be any kind of special crossbow -- any of them will work.


    Now that you have everything, teleport into any area that has bandits. I teleported into Greatwood. Equip the full dress and the red head wig (this is found in your headgear) and find some bandits. Click the left thumbstick in to zoom, again for 2x zoom and aim for the head. Hold Y for a little to ensure the arrow will the knock their head off.

    Achievement unlocked. You can also use a Slow Time spell to get it lined up if you're having trouble.


    *You can also obtain this by shooting a civilian if you really want to make this easy.

    New xDante1986Hi, can anybody explain how to decapitate? I have oak crossbow, red wig from bordello, Upper, Lower Dress and Dress gloves, but after killing 30 peoples nothing, Tried to decapitate them, but no luck at all. I even tried to pull string for a longer period around 30 seconds + and nothing changed no head fly off.

    Video-guide of Fable Anniversary to get the achievement I Did This For A Cheevo. For this achievement you'll have to do:

    1. - Buy the complete dress, for example at South Bowerstone store, it is formed of a top, a bottom and gloves.
    2. - Put on a beard in the stylist, without moustache. The normal beard will be fine.
    3. - Get a redheaded wig. For this sleep with a girl at the brothel and then go to the wardrove and take it.
    4. - Put on everything said and equip the crossbow (any will work, but it's better if it's powerfull) and choose any villager (anything with head will do).

    To get the achievement the shoot will have to take off the head, if it does the achievement will pop.In this video I talk in Spanish but I can be understood just watching it.

    I hope it's usefull, and If anyone vote negative I'd like to know the reason so I can improve in my future videos.
