Skyrim Player Gets Help In Battle From A Giant In Hilarious Video
Even the most powerful Dragonborn can sometimes need a hand, and one lucky Elder Scrolls player discovered an unlikely ally in a tall towering giant. Bethesda’s open-world RPG, Skyrim, was released in 2011. It has been hailed as the best video game ever. Skyrim would see three DLC expansions and many rereleases across virtually every platform in the past ten years. The most recent was The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Anniversary Edition on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in November.
Players are the mythically-empowered Dragonborn and must save Skyrim’s mountainous region from Alduin, an ancient dragon. It is up to the player to decide how the Dragonborn accomplishes this noble task in The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim. The game offers many skills, weapons, career tracks, and ancient factions that could be used to aid in the many battles the Dragonborn will encounter in Skyrim. Usually, players can only take one NPC friend on different raids and quests. However, sometimes, help can come from the most unlikely and unexpected places.
Reddit user Ecstatic-Yam-393 posted a short gameplay clip showing an encounter with a giant. The battle begins as expected, with the Dragonborn fighting a group of enemy mages at the forest’s center. The hero can cut down their enemies, and suddenly a giant appears from a distance. This knocks the last enemy into the stratosphere. Others in the comments section attribute this moment a glitch. This is common within Skyrim. Some players have shared their own stories of unexpected assistance and creature spawns.
Fans have found many strange gameplay details and occurrences in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim game world. One player saw an enemy in Skyrim slack off an arrow to their head and retaliated with a killing shot.
Some players are annoyed that Bethesda keeps remastering The Elder Scrolls V. Skyrim instead of other less popular Bethesda titles. However, there is still much to discover in the iconic RPG, even ten years after its original release to critical acclaim. This latest giant encounter shows that magic cannot protect you from a considerable being with the power and strength to launch a foe into orbit.
One of the most critical aspects of Bethesda’s game is the melee combat in Skyrim. Many dwemer ruins, crypts, and caves are littered with sharp, bladed, or bludgeon weaponry. The Two-Handed perk Tree governs the Dragonborn’s ability to wield the most powerful, most potent weapons.
One-handed weapons, destruction spells, and archery are all simple combat skills in Skyrim. Of the four weapons, the two-handed weapons scale best. These weapons are equally helpful at lower levels in the early game. These weapons do more damage than their one-handed counterparts and work independently from the player’s Magicka reserves. They can be used to disarm unarmored spellcasters and enemy archers at close quarters.
Skyrim has a more significant number of two-handed weapons than, with the weaker Daedric artifacts such as Volendrung and Ebony Blade generally less valuable than the multitude of one-handed options. The Two-Handed skill trees are very similar to one-handed. Both branches offer the same stackable benefits for all three categories of melee weapons. Although it is possible to add perk points to both the Two-Handed or One-Handed skill tree, it is better to pick a preference and then use the extra points to craft or armor.

The melee weapon tree offers similar benefits and perks, just as the different armor skill trees in the game. Like the pros & cons of Skyrim’s heavy armor, two-handed lean more towards the idea that bigger is better. It’s not about a series of small attacks and timing blocks. It’s more about being close to tanks. Despite the barbarian stereotypes, two-handed combat is often more strategic and challenging than one-handed weapons.
