'Skyrim' NPCs Can Be Made To Fight Over Dropped Loot And It's Pure Chaos

Every day I think I'm done learning about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, somebody turns around and shows me that there's so much more still to know.

Bethesda's 2011 classic is fast approaching its tenth anniversary, and gamers around the world are still sinking hundreds of hours into the RPG. It's not hard to see why. The world Bethesda created is one of genuine wonder, filled unexpected discoveries and untold secrets.

Take a look at some of our favourite Skyrim moments below!

Over on the Skyrim subreddit, there's currently a fascinating thread where users are sharing little details you might never have known about the game. It's a cracking read, and I can almost guarantee that even if you think you know everything about Skyrim, you'll come away having learned something new. Check it out here.

But of all the revelations contained within the thread, my favourite has to be the fact that you can actually make NPCs beat the crap out of each other sometimes by throwing loot on the ground.

"If you throw junk next to people they will fight for it," wrote Kaxton15. "Made the people of Riften fight over a silver ore."

Obviously I had to check this out for myself, and it turns out it's absolutely true! There doesn't seem to be a guarantee of an NPC fight, but if you find a crowded area and drop an item that's valuable enough, nearby characters will start scrapping for it.

As you can see in this video here, all the player needs to do is drop five iron daggers in the middle of Riften to cause a riot. Imagine punching someone over an iron dagger. I guess not everyone is as well off as the Dragonborn, to be fair.
