This The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim player worked out that there's a way to speedily descend those soaring watchtowers across the realm without becoming a splat on the ground, and it's actually lifted from Assassin's Creed.
With the release of the Anniversary Edition on the horizon, you can bet your bottom Septim that there will be a rush of fresh faces to Tamriel, ready to learn every strange secret hidden in this game. Skyrim is accessible to anyone with an interest in fantasy fiction, with engaging quests, a colourful cast of characters and the ability to choose your own path through the world.
Even players whose number of playthroughs of Skyrim have reached the double digits are still stumbling upon discoveries. For example, restoring the health of the Gildergreen is a breeze if you take a certain NPC with you on your journey. Or, the fact that garlic bread is the most powerful foodstuff in the game.
Skyrim is a weird and wonderful place, filled to the brim with weird and wonderful happenstances. Check out our compilation of wins and fails in the fantasy world below!
Reddit user Woebne shared a snippet of their time in Skyrim to the game's subreddit, showing that they've avoided fall damage with a sneaky trick that some will recognise from Assassin's Creed. Or Halo: Reach. Or Dishonored. If you're connecting the dots between this collection of games, then pat yourself on the back at the end of this clip.
So, it's a little situationally-dependent, shall we say, but it is an absolutely kickass way to prevent you doing your knees/spine/entire body in from a significant fall. The kill-cam animation renders the player invincible in that moment, thereby dissipating the damage that would have been done from landing at that speed.
One player noticed that they've also achieved this in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, and another replied that the kill-cam in Skyrim is actually the VATS mechanic from these games. Who'd have thought that recycling something from the post-apocalyptic United States would have let a person from a fantasy land jump on their enemies to eliminate them without suffering a single injury?
