Unenchanted Steel Greatswords will begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 2 and enchanted greatswords can be found at level 3. These locations include:
- Blacksmiths and General Goods Merchants.
- Wielded by various Characters, or Enemies.
- Found as random loot in chests, or as a world item throughout Skyrim.
It can be upgraded with a Steel Ingot at a grindstone and also benefits from the Steel Smithing perk, which doubles the improvement.
- Can be seen in a loading screen wielded by a male Nord wearing Steel Plate Armor.
- It bears a resemblance to the German Zweihander sword due to its leather-wrapped ricasso, although it is purely cosmetic in the game.
