Skyrim player murders every killable NPC in game to see what happens

Skyrim player murders every killable NPC in game to see what happens

The Dark Brotherhood would be proud

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is a massive game not just in map size but also the sheer amount of quests that you can partake in, secrets to discover and NPCs to interact with but what if you made its map of Tamriel feel like a barren wasteland void of life?

When Bethesda launched The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in 2011 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, few would have predicted the massive success it would become. Sure, Bethesda would have had high expectations but the fact that players are still enjoying the beloved fantasy RPG to this very day is a testament to how good it is.

There’s no telling the exact number of NPCs that live in Skyrim’s version of Tamriel but it would be safe to assume that it might be well into the thousands - and that’s not taking into account wildlife and monsters. So, if for whatever reason you wanted to make the Dark Brotherhood extra proud, killing every NPC in Skyrim might earn you some major brownie points.

That’s exactly what Reddit user amelix34 did in Skyrim, by killing every NPC in the game. “I killed everything that was killable,” said the ruthless Skyrim player. Amelix34 is not the first person to kill all NPCs in the game, because so have others such as YouTuber dumpykong.

So what happens if you kill every NPC in Skyrim, I hear you ask? Well, other than feeling less full of life, it could mean that you might not be able to finish the game unless you have a specific mod activated.

Some of the game's most important quests are associated with NPCs, and if those NPCs no longer exist, then you’re not going to be able to progress any further in Skyrim. This makes me wonder, is this time-consuming activity really worth the hassle?

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
