This page will serve as the checklist for the standardisation of all weapons pages for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

See Weapons Style Guide for how weapon pages should be laid out.

Once a page has been completed to standard, use the strike-though formatting, like this.


If you wish to take part, add your name to the list and the weapon list you will be working through.

Currently we have available:

Important things to remember

  • "Acquisition" as a header is only used when the item is unique or can only is found in a very specific way, such as a quest reward. For anything else we use "Location".
  • The locations of weapon found must be as brief as possible. Entries like "console commands" or "found on NPCs/Merchants" are redundant as they can apply to almost every single weapon.
  • Item ID's should always be uppercase.
  • When dealing with categories:
    • You dont need to add "Weapons" or "Skyrim: Weapons". The Infobox will add these automatically. If you see these categories on a page with an infobox, remove them.
    • Don't add overarching categories such as: Enchanted Weapons, Unique Weapons, Swords etc. These will clog up the cateogry tree and makes it harder to navigate. If you see these in a page - remove them.
  • For bugs pages, you can use { { ALLPLAT } } to give  PC   360   PS3  .
  • Remember to never use the first-person when writing, for example: "To obtain this weapon you need to complete a quest". Try to word it without, but if you must, then use "The Dragonborn".
  • We don't use "Notes" as a header. It's always "Trivia".
  • Standard for enchanted items as seen on Mehrunes' Razor:
The <weapon name> can be upgraded with an <ingot> and the Arcane Blacksmith perk, however it does not benefit from any smithing perks. This means that the weapon cannot be improved past flawless quality without boosting the Smithing skill over 100. This can be achieved by using enchanted apperal or blacksmithing potions to Fortify Smithing.
  • For Infoboxes use one the following - just copy and paste it:
    • [[One Handed]], [[Sword (Skyrim)|Sword]]
    • [[One Handed]], [[Daggers (Skyrim)|Dagger]]
    • [[One Handed]], [[Maces (Skyrim)|Mace]]
    • [[One Handed]], [[War Axes (Skyrim)|War Axe]]
    • [[Two-Handed]], [[Battleaxes (Skyrim)|Battleaxe]]
    • [[Two-Handed]], [[Greatswords (Skyrim)|Greatsword]]
    • [[Two-Handed]], [[Warhammers (Skyrim)|Warhammer]]
    • [[Archery (Skyrim)|Archery]], [[Bows (Skyrim)|Bow]]
  • Also the perk field needs one of the smithing perks added, like Ebony Smithing. If the weapons does not benefit from a perk use "None".
