Imperial Weapons are a type of weapon set available in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Unlike most other weapon sets, imperial weapons do not include arrows, battleaxes, a dagger, greatsword, mace or warhammer, although the Champion's Cudgel wielded by Falx Carius could perhaps be seen as an Imperial model of a warhammer.


  • Imperial weapons can typically be found wielded by most Imperial Soldiers and Hold Guards in Imperial-controlled Holds.
  • Imperial bows can sometimes be wielded by bandits.
  • Some NPCs, such as Sulla Trebatius, wield Imperial weapons.
  • Enchanted Imperial weapons can be given as quest rewards; an example being the leveled weapon reward from Ulfric Stormcloak after liberating a hold.
  • Two to three Imperial swords can be found at Whitewatch Tower.
  • The Champion's Cudgel can be obtained after defeating General Falx Carius.


Imperial Weapons can be upgraded at a grindstone with a Steel Ingot, which will increase their damage value. The increase is dependent upon Smithing skill, active potions, and equipped enchanted items.
