Skyrim Players Find Morbid Way To Claim Loot
Skyrim doesn't need much of an introduction at this stage, and it's clear to gamers everywhere how truly massive and expansive the fantasy title is - no matter which corner of the gaming world you reside in.
The fantasy title is so massive, fans are still finding details that make Tamriel feel much more lived in. These range from details found in the game's novels or nigh-on undetectable features that make the game more realistic. And now, players have discovered a new feature that lets them gather loot in… a much less savoury way.
Skyrim Feature Lets You Rob From Human Remains
Ew. Players have discovered a particularly bleak feature that many Skyrim fans may not have noticed in their first playthrough, that lets them rob from the ashes of the players they've killed.
TikTok channel gamingeastereggs have revealed in a new video that killing a citizen of Whiterun can actually offer you an incredibly bizarre way of looting NPCs.
If you kill an NPC in Whiterun, or allow them to die by any other means, after a few in-game days, an urn will appear in the town's Hall of the Dead. From there, if you didn't strip the NPC of all their worldly possessions and clothing there and then, they'll be available to be taken from in the urn - presumably along with the last of the character's remains.
Skyrim Urn Secret Isn't Limited To Whiterun
The video shows the player performing the secret in Whiterun, but this can be done in any city or town that has a location where its people respect the dead. The only towns of note without a Hall of the Dead are Dawnstar, Morthal and Winterhold, so everywhere else is ripe for the picking with this secret.
This feature is a bizarre one, but it'll come in handy if you're roleplaying as the absolute worst person in Tamriel. We wouldn't recommend it in any other setting, but if you'd like to fish around in someone's remains, then feel free.
