Giant Clubs are intentionally unobtainable unique weapons in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While serving no use to the player directly, the item can still be moved around like any other world item. However, a follower may be ordered to take it and they may use it as with the Dwarven Sphere Centurion Arrow. It will not appear in the follower's inventory.


A follower may be ordered to pick the giant club up and use it, but it won't appear in their inventory. To "force" a follower to use the Club, it's advisable to remove any weapons they may be carrying (such as Lydia's stock Steel Sword.) 

The club appears to benefit from One-Handed enchantments on gear (wearing a set of Fortify One-Handed enchantments showed a higher damage than Fortify Two-Handed). However, followers with a low Two-Handed skill, (such as the Dark Brotherhood Initiate), do not deal a significant amount of damage. Therefore, it is best to give this club to a follower with a high level in Two-Handed (such as Vilkas).


Known locationsEdit


  • Although NPCs other than giants and followers are not meant to have or equip this club, the player can wield it as a weapon on PC. The console commands player.additem CDEC9 1 (1 being the number of items added) and player.equipitem CDEC9 can be used. If these console commands are used on a NPC, (the same commands without "Player."), the NPC will equip the club. Also note that NPCs using the club in a fight cannot "moon launch" other people like the giants can.
  • Although the weapon would make more sense as a warhammer, it is classed as a greatsword
  • Due to the large handle, followers' hands clip quite far into the weapon.

  •  PC   360   PS3  When pushed around, it makes the sound of a metal weapon of some kind.
  •  PC   360   PS3  Rarely, a follower may lose it or it will simply disappear.
  •  PC   360   PS3  When a follower wields the club and uses a finisher, it tends to stab through the opponent like a greatsword, and has the same power attack speed as one.

    • It's not even worth it, even if you add it into your hands and use it you can't exactly make people fly into the air like giants do. :(
