Getting Heavy In Skyrim


I rarely role-play in games. I'd like to believe it's because I have such a well-defined personality that I simply can't accept not being myself, but the real reason is that I'm rubbish. I only ever have one well-defined notion of what I want to be: Garrett. Every opportunity to create a character in a game for me means loading up on stealth options, and when I do I don't really feel the character. I'm just a dude in the dark. But my last Skyrim character was lost to the great platter splatter* of October 2012, and I'm keen to go back the Fus Ro Dah. The question of whether or not I replay as a Garrett lookalike or roll something more adventurous has been answered with this mod that puts Team Fortress 2's heavy into the dragon's lair. I can tell I'm not going to be loading up on stealth options with this one.

Lore schmore! I am Heavy Weapons Guy! He's been added as a selectable race, so you'll need to start a new game. And while the current model isn't perfect, he has the correct stance for unarmed combat. And he's deadly with those fists. My suggestion for the modder is that there's needs to be more hats, and if you haven't already added it then there's scope for the dragon shouts to be replaced with a few game taunts. Anyway, I did some terrible video-capture below, to prove I've not just mocked this up. It really is bad, but I needed to quickly upload it. I am sorry.

Modder [FP] Dafini has also added the Engineer as a race, as well as including the Heavy as a follower.

*Now please observe a silence in memory of my hard-drive. It went too soon.
