    when you get prize boxes. don't open them. instead back up your gamertag and save data. then go offline and open them. if you didn't get what you want. use ur back ups till you get what you want.

    So, can you keep the stuff you get? Or when you bring in your backups does it erase everything you unlocked?

    Step 1:Unlock several prize boxes online and do not use them.

    Step 2:After you have the desired amount, take your profile to your computer and create a copy of it on your desktop.

    Step 3:Unplug your console from Xbox live.

    Step 4:tongue:ower up gears and spend all of your prize boxes in a row, without returning to the gears menu.

    Step 5:After you spend the final box, click A to dismiss the reward and unplug the flash drive containing your profile.

    Step 6:Sign out of your Xbox profile.

    Step 7:On your computer put the copy profile you made into horizon and save it to your flash drive overwriting the old one.

    Step 8:tongue:lug the flash drive back into your Xbox.

    Step 9:Sign back in.

    Step 10: Press start, go into the game and unlock more stuff.

    Step 11: Repeat.

    After you have everything you want, do it again and after step 4 just back out of the rewards menu to the gears main menu and it will save to your profile. Just bring that profile back online and everything will be unlocked.

    The game will keep the unlocks each time so they just stack up. Worked for me just fine, let me know what happens for you guys.

    Are you supposed to extract your profile or your player data?

    I can confirm this fully works. I still have my boxes after going online. For a while I kept getting XP which pissed me off lol. To sum up some possible confusion:

    • Have both your profile and Player Data on your USB
    • Only overwrite your profile in Horizon
      • This allows you to restore your boxes after redeeming them
    • Leave your Player Data alone...this is what makes the skins stick. If you overwrite it you just negated the purpose of the glitch
    • Before you want to go back online, overwrite the profile again so you still keep your old boxes
