Heavy Weapons is a passive skill in the Two-Handed skill line in The Elder Scrolls Online.


WITH TWO-HANDED WEAPON EQUIPPED 10% chance to bleed for 0 Physical Damage over 10 seconds with Two-Handed Axe. Attacks ignore 40 armor with Two-Handed Mace. Deals 3% additional damage with Two- Handed Sword. (2 ranks)


Unlocked at Two-Handed Rank 10.


  • Update 2: This passive ability now scales based on weapon damage instead of spell damage. It also no longer ticks for zero damage at low levels, and Rank I's axe damage modifier will now properly be weaker than that of Rank II.[1]
  • Update 9: Fixed an issue where the Axe Bleed proc from this passive ability was triggering 100% of the time.[2]
