The Imperial Officer's Helmet is a semi-rare piece of heavy armor and part of the Imperial Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

It is more protective than the Imperial Helmet, but is typically only worn by captains and legates of the Imperial Legion.


It is similar in appearance to the standard version, but has a prominent metal plume across the top and the insignia of the Empire stamped on the front.


The helmet cannot be found as random loot, however it can be found in certain locations:


  • Despite becoming a Legate in the main questline for the Imperial Legion, this helmet is not awarded in accordance with the new rank.
  • Oddly, despite the Imperial Officer's Helmet being better than the regular Imperial Helmet in terms of base armor rating and weight, it has less value than the regular variant.
  • Imperial Officers do not wear the helmet, despite its name.
