A town in Dragonborn add-on for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
A town in Dragonborn expansion full is of townfolk.

Infinite Ammo

Hand over a single one of your finest arrows to your companion, then proceed to relieve them of their sword and equip them with a bow. You’ll find that every skirmish you engage in will result in a volley of arrows from that single one you initially provided. After the dust settles, make it a point to collect the spent arrows; you’ll soon realize your inventory of arrows has impressively multiplied.

Slow motion

Secure a bow and an arrow, ensuring that the Eagle Eye perk is activated in your skill tree. Use the zoom feature on your bow to decelerate in-game time. While maintaining this zoomed stance, execute a reload from a previous save. You’ll find the game’s tempo remains slowed down until you employ the zoom function again.

The Infinite Shouts

To activate zero shout cooldown, you need five Amulets of Talos. Additionally, make sure the following conditions are met. First, you must have the ability to morph into either a Vampire Lord or a Werewolf. Second, you must have a companion. As you transform, simultaneously start a conversation with your companion. Select the option to trade items, transfer the amulets to them, and then equip the amulets directly from their inventory. If you did it right, you should have five amulets worn, which reduces the cooldown by 100%.

Sneak Roll Without Perk

To use this glitch and activate the sneak mode, you simply hold the sprint button and double-tap the sheath button while moving forward or sideways. This should perform the sneak roll even when you don’t have the perk equipped.

Infinite Vendor Gold 

If you’ve played the game enough, you’ve surely come across a problem where you have so much loot that the vendor can’t buy all of it off of you. Fortunately, there’s a glitch you can use to help with this problem. Simply save the game and attack them to make them hostile. After this load the game and that should reset their gold. 


Do I need to complete Skyrim to play Dragonborn?

No, completing the entire main questline of Skyrim is not required for diving into the Dragonborn expansion. You can access the new content after completing the quest The Way of the Voice.

Is Dragonborn a standalone game?

No, it is an expansion for Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It requires the base Skyrim game.
