About this mod

Replaces either (or both) the light or heavy bash attack when blocking.

Permissions and credits
I felt that the bash attack when blocking was always a little silly...

This mod is a simple animation replacer editing either (or both) the Light Bash or Power Bash (available through a perk) attacks when blocking with a weapon drawn to that of a punch. Works in both 3rd and 1st person.

This mod comes in 3 flavours:

  • Option 1 - Light Punch: Replaces the default quick bash when blocking. (Attack button tapped)
  • Option 2 - Heavy Punch: Replaces the 'Power Bash' perk when blocking. (Attack button held) Note: This option only works if you have unlocked the Power Bash perk.
  • Option 3 - Light & Heavy Punch: A combination of both animations.

(Please see the videos section for a preview as I can't seem to get it embedded into the description correctly)

Thanks BDMods for creating this little spotlight for the mod! They make top quality videos and I really encourage anyone into Skyrim modding to subscribe to them :)


Download any of the NMM optional files and install with Nexus Mod Manager. (Can Mix & Match)
Manually download one/both of the COMPLETE packages, select an Option and manually drop the Meshes folder into your Data and play away =)

Simply delete the '1hm_blockbash.hkx' and/or the '1hm_blockbashpower.hkx' files in both the 'Animations' and '_1stperson' animations folder.
