Even after ten years, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim finds new ways to delight and amaze players. Bethesda's much-loved open-world RPG is a game filled with possibilities, after all, with fresh surprises and secrets waiting to be discovered with each new playthrough.
Of course for some players, there's very little left to conquer in Skyrim. Some of the more dedicated fans have put hundreds - maybe even thousands - of hours into the game, and have done everything that can feasibly done. At that point, what else can you do? Push the game to its absolute limits and try to break it, of course.
Such was the case for one well-travelled adventurer who recently crafted a pair of all-powerful gauntlets. Over on the Skyrim subreddit, BotBoy6464 showed off a pair of heavily enchanted legendary steel plate gauntlets that can cause an additional 3665604 damage when used for unarmed strikes. In other words, they basically became One Punch Man.
Incredibly, there were no mods used in the creation of these gloves. Just good old-fashioned "Skyrim cheese", as BotBoy puts it. And what did they use these gloves for, you might ask? To one-bomb pretty much everyone in the game, of course!
Apparently they were even able to stride up to the game's final boss, Alduin The World Eater, and end them with a single slap to the face. I know Alduin is a fairly disappointing last boss at the best of times, but that's super embarrassing for the supposedly fearsome dragon.
I only hope that when The Elder Scrolls VI finally launches, it does so knowing that one of the reasons people are still playing Skyrim after a decade is precisely because it lets you do stupid shit like this/
