Defeat your enemies from afar using more than just spells and arrows with
This mod requires SKSE and SkyUI in order to use all of its features. The links to these files can be found under "Required Files".
This mod adds a whole new style of combat to Skyrim, Throwing Weapons. No longer do you have to rely on only using arrows and spells to engage your opponents at a distance. These include Throwing Axes, Throwing Knives, Javelins and Grenades.
The throwing weapons are simple to use, just aim and throw. Equip them and swing them like any other handheld weapon and the weapon will be thrown towards the target. They can also be dual wielded with both conventional weapons and other throwing weapons.
To get hold of these weapons you can craft them yourself at any forge providing you have the correct smithing perks for the job.
If your impatient then use the the console command 'Help' to find the console codes of the weapons using the following format 'Help "
Each type of throwing weapon is governed by a particular skill, using the weapons will train you in that skill as well.
The Potion Grenades are governed by your Alchemy Skill
The Throwing Axes/Knives/Javelins are governed by your Archery Skill
This mod makes use of MCM and therefore requires SKSE and SkyUI (or SkyUI away). The menu is pretty self explanatory but here is a brief breakdown of the menu system.
General - This menu allows you to turn certain features of the mod on or off. These include the different weapon types and also the quivers. By default they are all set to on. By turning a particular weapon off you will remove it from vendors, loot and the crafting menus. By turning off quivers they will no longer be automatically equipped when you equip a throwing weapon.
Axes - This menu allows you to individually tweak the damage of the axes if they are enabled in the general menu.
Knives - This menu allows you to individually tweak the damage of the knives if they are enabled in the general menu.
Javelins - This menu allows you to individually tweak the damage of the javelins if they are enabled in the general menu.
Grenades - This menu allows you to individually tweak the damage of the grenades if they are enabled in the general menu. The oil and gas trap grenades are not in this menu as they work differently.
Perks - This menu offers an alternative to unlocking perks through the skill tree. If the perk tree plugin is active then this menu will be disabled.
