Giant Clubs are intentionally unobtainable unique weapons in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While serving no use to the player directly, the item can still be moved around like any other world item. However, a follower may be ordered to take it and they may use it as with the Dwarven Sphere Centurion Arrow. It will not appear in the follower's inventory.


A follower may be ordered to pick the giant club up and use it. However, it will not appear in their inventory. To "force" a follower to use the Club, it is advisable to remove any weapons they may be carrying (such as Lydia's stock Steel Sword). 

The club appears to benefit from One-Handed enchantments on gear (wearing a set of Fortify One-Handed enchantments showed a higher damage than Fortify Two-Handed). However, followers with a low Two-Handed skill (such as the Dark Brotherhood Initiate), do not deal a significant amount of damage. Therefore, it is best to give this club to a follower with a high level in Two-Handed (such as Vilkas).




  • Although characters other than giants and followers are not meant to have or equip this club, the Dragonborn can wield it as a weapon on PC. The console commands player.additem CDEC9 1 (1 being the number of items added) and player.equipitem CDEC9 can be used. If these console commands are used on a character, (the same commands without "Player."), the character will equip the club. Note that characters using the club in a fight cannot launch other people like the giants can.
  • Although the weapon is more similar to a warhammer, it is classed as a greatsword.
  • Due to the large handle, followers' hands clip quite far into the weapon.
  • If Dragonborn is installed, the Dragonborn may order Rieklings to pick up the club.
