Guide To Finding All 80 Unique Weapons In Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Scattered throughout the land of Skyrim you will find a number of strong unique weapons for the taking. You can receive these weapons upon completion of quests, finishing dungeons, pickpocketing NPCs, and many other ways. Most of these weapons are crazy good, so they’re well worth the hunt.

Look at them like they’re Pokemon and collect ’em all. Show em off to your friends, switch them out every day, or just stash them in your storage. The guide below outlines the name, location, and details for finding each weapon. The table and information comes courtesy of Realsg.com.

Keep in mind, some of these weapons are very powerful.  Find them at your own expense because they may make you slightly overpowered. (How overpowered? See our Unique Weapon Stats Guide)  Besides that, happy hunting!
