Skyrim fans amazed by hidden skill discovery after 2,000 hours

Skyrim is still hot stuff today

Despite being well over a decade old, players are still discovering new secrets in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, such as this the hot ability that is today’s topic of discussion.

Originally released in 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Skyrim has gone on to be not only one of Bethesda’s most successful games ever but it’s also one of the most popular video games of all time benefiting from ports with every generation since its first release. Some could argue that we’ve seen too much Skyrim, but take it up with those who keep buying the game.

Check out the Skyrim Anniversary Edition trailer below!

“The next chapter in the highly anticipated Elder Scrolls saga arrives from the makers of the 2006 and 2008 Games of the Year, Bethesda Game Studios,” reads the description of the game. “Skyrim reimagines and revolutionises the open-world fantasy epic, bringing to life a complete virtual world open for you to explore any way you choose.”

Being a fantasy RPG, there are loads of ways to defeat your enemy whether it's the old faith sword and shield or the dreaded arrow to the knee. However, you can also dispose of your enemy with powerful magic and perhaps nothing is more powerful in the lands of Tamriel than the almighty dragon shouts.

The most popular dragon shout is ‘Unrelenting Force and when the words “Fus-Ro-Dah” are uttered, it unleashes a powerful force that sends just about any foe flying to their doom or an unsuspecting NPC, you know you’re guilty of that too.

“What are some little-known facts, or secrets about Skyrim that we may not know about?” asked therealtedpro to fellow members on the Reddit thread. “This is a good way to share something with other players that they may not know about.”

“If you're in a dungeon and see large, lit braziers in the middle of the floor and use Unrelenting Force on it, it will shoot a large fireball in the direction you shout,” revealed tintinnabular. “Dear lord... That's awesome,” replied possiblyunattractiv.

So, there you have it, if you’re next to some fire-lit braziers and you have the Unrelenting Force equipped, why not add some extra kaboom to the next unsuspecting NPC victim. I know you want to.
