Unbreakable Lockpick

You can get an unbreakable lockpick during the "Darkness Returns" quest. This is part of the Thieves Guild in Riften line and if you refrain from finishing the quest once you have been given the 'Skeleton Key', you can keep it and use it to unlock doors and chests.

Easy Arrows

For an easy way to build up a supply of an arrow type, when you come across someone who is shooting arrows at a dummy target, you can pickpocket the arrows they have been using and then give them an arrow of another type - I.e. The one that you want to get a lot more of!

The NPC will then begin to use this type of arrow to shoot their target, allowing you to get them as they hit the target and build up a stash of your own in this particular variety.

Console Codes

Press the tilda key (~) to bring up the developer console, and enter the codes below:

Activate God Mode: tgm

Advance Level: advlevel

No Clip: tcl

Increase Gold: 'player.additem 000000F ?' - the ? Should be replaced with the amount of gold and the quotation marks removed.

Archery and Speech increase

Player.IncPCS marksman

(increases archery 1 point at a time)

Player.IncPCS speechcraft

(increases speech 1 point at a time)

As far as I know these cheats are not known or written as of yet anywhere. On my pc speech and archery cheat leveling did not work, so I thought back to oblivion days as to what they were called and just played around a little, the above cheats work for me on my pc version of skyrim.

Remove Fast Travel Weight Limit

When your hero becomes 'over-encumbered', you can't fast travel. This prevents you from pillaging treasure rich locations and just traveling back to store it.

There is a way around this issue, however. Basically you just need to buy yourself a horse. Because horses can take the extra weight, the game allows you to fast travel in this situation, regardless of your excess weight.

Horse Swimming Glitch

If the water is too deep for your horse, it has to swim - and quite slowly. If you dismount the horse while in deep water, and then get back on, it should be able to effectively run through the water at high speed.

Infinite Storage

Whenever you see a storage container, remember that you can store any excess items in it and should be able to return to it and collect them later.

This is not guaranteed but is nearly always the case. The only way to store items with no risk is to buy a property and keep them in there.

No Fall Damage

If you find yourself falling, as long as you are against a surface I.e. Falling down a steep slope, if you toggle sneak mode, this sticks you to the surface and stops you from receiving damage.

This means you can descend high areas much more easily knowing you are not going to take high damage.

Restock any Merchant Instantly

To instantly refresh a merchants stock and gold perform the following five steps:

1) Choose a merchant

2) Sell or buy anything

3) Save your game

4) Kill the merchant

5) Load the game

'Do Not Delete' Chests

By playing through a lot of Skyrim, you might stumble upon an item in a shop's inventory called simply 'Do Not Delete'. It looks like a chest and, when purchased, will float in mid air. You can use it to climb to previous unreachable areas, and, if you get multiple chests, you can build some stairs!

It has been frequently reported as part of the inventory at Arcadia's Cauldron in Whiterun, though is not there all the time.

Armor Duplication

At your house in Solitude use the armor stand and place any piece of apparel on the mannequin. Then immediately take it back before exiting the menu. If you now leave your house and return the armor will appear on the mannequin and it will still be in your inventory.

Use the Sneak Roll without the Perk

Activate Sneak Mode and hold the 'Sprint' button, if you then double tap the 'Ready/Sheath' button while moving forward you will perform a forward roll. If done while moving sideways you will instead do a hop in that direction.

Invincible Dog Friend

When at Falkreath, speak to Lod. Once you accept the task of finding his dog, Barbas, go outside the village and you should locate it. Barbas will then lead you to the Shrin of Clavicus Vile, after which you will receive the 'A Daedra's Best Friend' quest.

Throughout this quest, the dog is invincible, must survive, and can't be killed. This means that you can use him for other tasks, and he will provide a very effective addition to your combat strategies.

Easy Illusion Leveling

To level up your Illusion skills, cast the Muffle spell as often as possible. It makes your movements quieter, and the bonus is that you can use it while walking around all the time.

You also gain general experience from doing this.

Mountain Climbing Glitch

Some of the mountains in Skyrim seem too high to climb up. However, if you reach a point that is too steep, turn around and jump backwards, moving all the way. So you should be looking down the mountain and jumping backwards up it.

This should allow you to reach previously inaccessible areas.

Smoke Testing Editors Room

To do this, first you have to have Skyrim for the computer.

Then press the ~ button to bring up the cheat code bar,

Then type in "coc qasmoke" without the quotes. It will take to the croom of every item in the game. But, there is only ONE item of every kind. So choose wisely.

To get out don't be overencumbered, type coc 'name of area'

Skill level , money and lockpicks , kill unlock , weight limit i

Other commands that you can still use in skyrim

Disenchant that item to learn the ench..


Hello I got a way to get all perks in about 10 min
