Skyrim Player Discovers Incredibly Powerful Bow During Playthrough

A player of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has recently shared that they found an incredibly powerful bow while going through one of their playthroughs. Given that players can find some weapons in Skyrim with random statistics, this fan’s overpowered discovery will probably let them breeze through the entire game without having to worry about getting better gear.

Skyrim is close to reaching its 12th year this 2023 and the community’s activity seems to show no signs of slowing down. Much like the Red Dead Redemption 2 player base, fans remain involved with each other through online forums like Reddit. The platform is often filled with a lot of content about the action-RPG, whether it is a new discovery in-game, fan-created artwork, and even mods that tweak the Skyrim gameplay experience. No matter the topic, the game’s community seems like an accepting and wholesome place to share the same interest for the title.


On Reddit, user maxwutcosmo posted a screenshot of the powerful Skyrim bow they found while playing through the game. In the uploaded image, players may not find anything interesting at first, as it only showcases a seemingly typical Dwarven Bow. However, upon closer inspection, eagle-eyed fans will notice that the damage statistics of the bow are insanely high. Going past ten digits of damage stats, the player’s Dwarven Bow could potentially one-shot every foe that they face in the action-RPG. The original poster also noted that they were playing Skyrim without any mods and on their Nintendo Switch.

Commenters on the Reddit thread encouraged maxwutcosmo to take the item and use it for their own gain. This is likely not a new thing within the community, given that there are a handful of very powerful monsters and enemies in Skyrim. Others also commented that the same kind of damage stat can probably be achieved through the well-known Restoration Loop trick via the game’s enchanting feature. However, given how buggy Skyrim has always been, and probably always will be, the Redditors seem to have chalked it up to the game simply being its glitchy self.

Nevertheless, maxwutcosmo likely enjoyed having found the incredibly powerful Skyrim weapon and using it to defeat everything they encounter in-game. Hopefully the bow’s damage stat does not get affected by any future patches of the action-RPG on the Switch. Losing such an interesting piece of equipment would be a shame, especially since it was such a lucky find.

The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim – Anniversary Edition is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
