Now the aim third and first person mode is fixed!!!

Adds throwing knives and axes to the Skyrim armory. You can combine the weapons with others, because they are one handed.

You can forge the weapons at any forge.
Once equipped you just have to attack like with every other weapon.
The projectile will be shot in the direction you are pointing.

There are 5 different knives

Iron Knife : 6
Steel Knife: 7
Elven Knife: 10
Orcish Knife: 8
Dwarven Knife: 11

The ammo isn´t a weapon it just supplies infinite ammo (for the specific material eg. Steel ammo for Steel knife and Dwarven for Dwarven kinfe, so if you have two different throwing knifes equipped you can only supply infinite ammo for one)

This is my first mod so do not be mean to me...

To fix the aim I had to change the mod so that the used ammo can´t be recovered, but I am working on that. Thanks to Althalos and DaMuncha on the Creation Kit Forums for discussing the script and Neon on Steam for testing the Mod. I had to change the damage of the knives as well, so please tell me if it is too low or too high, with numbers please.

Here is the link to the CK forums, if Someone wants to take a look and maybe try to improve it:

"Throwing Knives Mod Help"

this was posted on Nexus as Throwing Knives WIP:

Known Bugs:
There are some bugs when unequipping a weapon in one hand while the throwing knives are in the other hand. To solve this you just have to unequip ithem, and then reequip them.

I fixed the "resisted knife impact" bug
the damage is this way now:

Total Damage = (Basic Knife Damage * 1.5) + (Player One-Hand Skill - Target Damage Resist / 2)
Total Sneak Damage = (Basic Knife Damage * 1.5) + ((Player One-Hand Skill)*3 - Target Damage Resist / 2)

note: the basic knife damage always affects the target, but the additional damage will only affect the target if the subtraction is greater than 0

If you think this formula is wrong, you can propose one to improve the balance

Hope it works for you, and feel free to improve the mod and continue with this idea.


Glass Knife
Ebony Knife (2 Rounds)
Daedric Knife
Shurikens (5 rounds)
Elven Axe (40% to knock down a enemy)
Orcish Axe (40% to knock down a enemy)

Removed the sheathe animation
Now the projectiles spin in the air after shooting

Special Thanks To:

The knives are not thrown ... they just perform as melee close-range swing attacks.

This is so ridiculously overpowered. Love using these, because they benefit from 15x damage while sneaking with dagger, which is doubled with Shrouded Gloves, meaning essentially instant kills at medium range.

Question about the mod, do the throwing knives benefit from the Assassin's Blade perk (x15 damage when sneak attacking with a dagger) or Deadly Aim (x3 damage when sneak attacking with a bow)?

this is a sick idea dude, love playing with it, makes things so much more Ninja like, hope you continue with these ideas!!!!!!!!

that would rock, being able to shank someone the turn around and let your knife fly into another's face!
