Orcish Weapons are a type of weaponry found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Orcish weapons can be found throughout Skyrim or crafted at a forge. They are stronger than Steel Weapons and weaker than Dwarven Weapons. Orcish weapons can be found as early as level 1. However, the armor is found much later.
With the Orcish Smithing perk, Orcish Weapons may be crafted at any forge using the Smithing skill and the necessary materials. Orcish Weapons are made from iron ingots and orichalcum ingots. All items also require leather strips, except the Orcish Bow and Arrows. Orcish weapons are considerably weaker than dwarven weapons, despite its perk being higher up on the skill tree. However, the armor is much stronger.

Can be found in blacksmith shops frequently (and less frequently in general stores) once the Dragonborn reaches higher levels. Can also be found in random treasure chests, loot, and on enemies. They are also carried by Orcs in Orc camps scattered around The Reach.
