Maybe to add a bit of humor to the game, or maybe to show off the shaky physics, Skyrim the player chose to complete the Dark Brotherhood’s initial quest by killing Grelod the Good with metal cheese. Considering this The Elder Scrolls 6 still far, gamers continue to have fun with Bethesda’s 2011 entry in its long-running fantasy series. Sometimes that means coming up with unique ways to kill NPCs.

Of course, just the base game still offers plenty to do, giving players hours of entertainment. One such example is the number of factions and guilds a Dragonborn can be a part of. It is popular to join The Elder Scrolls‘The Dark Brotherhood, a gang of scoundrels and assassins tasked with ensuring that targets live up to their creators. For those who like their quests to be a little bloodier, this is the perfect path that gives players the chance to take down undesirables. However, contracts do not always require a bloody death.

Reddit user odggodly recently uploaded a short clip from his site Skyrim a walkthrough in which they were tasked with killing Grelod the Good, the fearsome headmistress of the Honorhall orphanage in Riften. However, instead of slaughtering her or brutally ending her life with an axe, the player chooses to pick up a piece of cheese lying at her feet. After being thrown, it hits Grelod with such force that it effectively kills her, thus ending the mission. Other comments in Reddit thread agree that this is a rather unique and amusing way to fulfill this first Brotherhood contract.

for some reason Skyrim fans are obsessed with cheese, whether it’s using a piece to take down a character or figuring out how many can be accumulated before the game crashes. Given that these dairy products can be found almost anywhere in the settlement, despite not being very useful outside of survival mode, players have clearly taken it upon themselves to find something to do with them.

Things like this explain why Skyrim has been going on for more than ten years and is still as popular as when it was released. The modding community also contributes to the longevity of the epic role-playing game by releasing a lot of custom content, not to mention Bethesda re-releases the title with each new generation. However, there’s also something to be said for players just having a bit of fun, such as shooting otherwise harmless food items at unsuspecting NPCs.
