About this mod

If your enemy is injured enough to fall to one knee (i.e. Bleed Out), you will be able to press the Activate button (Keyboard Default "E", Xbox Default "A", PS Default "X") to rip out his/her Heart.

Profile System

Save, Load, and Delete
As of Version 1.2 SE, Heart Breaker allows you to save and load all of your settings from the Profile System Page. Profiles will be saved to Data/Killmove Mod Profiles/Heart Breaker with the extension .HBMS.  The Profile System page will also display the currently loaded Profile as well as the number of profiles detected.

The Profile System requires JContainers SE to work and has been included as an option in the main download file's fomod installer.


Extract the .7z file and place the Heart Breaker SE.bsa and Heart Breaker SE.esp  into your Skyrim Special Edition\Data folder. Enable the Heart Breaker SE.esp in the Mods section of the main menu in the Skyrim Special Edition. You should overwrite all files when updating.

Compatible Mods

Incompatible Mods

1. Mods that make you use the activate button on NPCs that are down on one knee (i.e. Bleeding Out), unless that mod has a dialogue menu that pops up first asking you what you want to do. If it does, then enabling Heart Breaker's Dialogue Menu option may allow you to choose between heart ripping and whatever the other mod does.


Q1: Why did I end up ripping a heart out of thin-air?

A1: If an NPC is too close to a wall, or has weird positioning relative to you, it is possible that the animation will play, but you will rip the Heart out of thin-air. This is also a problem with normal killmoves and there's nothing I can do about it.

Q2: What's the difference between Normal Essential NPCs and Special Essential NPCs?

A2: Normal Essential NPCs can have their Essential Flag turned off while in-game, Special Essential NPCs are flagged Essential by Quests, and cannot have their Essential Flag turned off in-game. Due to this oddity, when Essential Kills is On, Special Essential NPCs will explode into gore even with Explosive Heart Breaker disabled, and leave behind a Bloody Satchel filled with items rather than the normal lootable gore pile.

Q3: Why do I have a Heart stuck in my hand and how do I get rid of it?

A3: This can happen if you have a script heavy setup, it shouldn't be a normal occurrence. To get rid of the Heart, Deactivate and Reactivate the mod in the Book Menu.

Q4: Heart Breaker is overwriting some files added by another mod, what should I do?

A4: Heart Breaker now includes 2 extra things for the profile system to work, JContainers SE and UILib Version 1. These are resource files that may also be included with other mods. In the case of UILib, it doesn't matter which mod's UILib files are overwriting the other one's, they should be identical. For JContainers SE, Heart Breaker comes bundled with version 4.1.0, which is the latest version at the time of 1.2's release. As long as your installed version of JContainers is version 4.0.x or higher, it should work with Heart Breaker.
