For other uses, see Bucket.

A Bucket is a type of miscellaneous item commonly found across Skyrim in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


They have no special effects and are only worth a small amount of gold. The Dragonborn can place a bucket over an NPC's head, so that they don't witness a crime. (Patched: A character will now throw the bucket off of their head if one is placed there.)



  • There are three types of buckets in Skyrim, differing in size. Some can be found with items inside them that can be removed or dumped out.
