- Glitches and bugs are still being discovered in Skyrim 12 years after its release, highlighting the game’s enduring popularity and the quirks within its open-world environment.
- A player recently encountered a hilarious glitch involving a wheelbarrow that caused their character to be killed almost instantly, leading to amusing anecdotes from the Skyrim community about unexpected dangers in the game.
- Despite the upcoming release of Elder Scrolls 6, Skyrim continues to have a dedicated player base who are constantly finding new ways to play and explore the game, ensuring that its charm and surprises will be enjoyed for years to come.
A ridiculous glitch in Skyrim has been found when a player interacts with a wheelbarrow and quickly pays the price for it. After 12 years on sale, Bethesda’s Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has become somewhat of a cultural phenomenon in gaming. One fan has even rediscovered their Skyrim receipt from the midnight launch on November 11, 2011.
When Skyrim was first released in 2011, the amount of bugs and glitches found within Bethesda’s epic open-world RPG was well documented across the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions. Even after a decade on sale, and numerous ports and remasters, including PS5 and Xbox Series X/S editions, players are still finding interesting events when walking around Tamriel’s northern continent.

In a post to the r/Skyrim subreddit, a Reddit user by the name of maescyn uploaded a video showing why gamers shouldn’t trust the humble wheelbarrow in Skyrim. In the short clip, the player walks through Riverwood and, after talking to Alvor, jumps on the wooden cart outside the town’s forge before succumbing to an almost instant kill. It appears from the clip that the damage was caused by the wheelbarrow glitching and hitting the character multiple times in quick succession.
At the time of writing, the post has gained 3.4k upvotes and numerous comments from fans, mostly sharing stories of how inanimate objects are possibly the deadliest enemies that players can face during their time in Skyrim. It appears that wheelbarrows aren’t the only thing that adventurers have to be afraid of, with one gamer recently had a shock when exiting a shop in Skyrim as a horse and rider fell out of the sky and rag-dolled in the street.
After 12 years on sale, players are still finding ways to tackle Bethesda’s open-world RPG. A player is currently taking suggestions on a Gigachad playthrough of Skyrim after designing a character based on the popular meme. The suggestions range from not using magic to only using fists, and it remains to be seen how the gamer will tackle one of the more interesting approaches to the game.
Even though Bethesda is working on Elder Scrolls 6, there is still a dedicated community of players exploring the world of Skyrim and contributing to the most interesting finds. It seems that even after seeing a release across multiple console generations, gamers will still be finding quirks of Skyrim long after the next entry in the Elder Scrolls franchise releases.
Skyrim is a beloved game for a reason. There is so much to do in the game, and with the new anniversary updates, even veteran players will have a fresh experience if they haven’t played it in a few years.
Perfect for players who want to play Skyrim on the go, but don’t have a Steamdeck or another portable gaming system, this deal is likely not going to be repeated until end of year sales start going. Take the opportunity now to become the dragonborn on the Switch!
