  •  PC   In Hjerim of Windhelm, if the shield is placed on the shield rack between the two mannequins, it will spawn on the mannequin to the left perpetually.
  •  PC   360   PS3   When placed on many shield racks in player homes the shield will clip into the shield rack and not be "flat" against the rack. This may be due to the shield being thicker than other shields, as well as having a unique handle to hold on to. The developers may have tilted the shield to clip less with the player's arm when equipped.
  • The Shield, if placed on a shield rack or mannequin, will glitch and make a copy of itself.
