Now, Reddit user DapperBones has shared a brief video with Reddit that reinforces this very notion of the experience role-playing gaming. Leaving many fans completely baffled at another funny glitch in Skyrim, the 18-second clip starts with DapperBones scouring an enormous forest during horseback. All appears fine until a translucent ghost horse trots past DapperBones at full speed, with the lone phantom steed just narrowly shearing the player.
Uh- The Horseman Fell off from
This spontaneous happening alone might not be enough to confound the greater experienced adventurers from the game, as Skyrim is already home to several phantom beasts such as the Arvak. But why is this sighting hilarious is the fact that right after the ghost horse passes DapperBones, so does its bumbling headless rider as he chases after their own translucent mount.
For those not too caught up on Skyrim's lore, the headless horseman is a specter that players can catch while traveling throughout Skyrim at night, or staying at Hamvir's Rest throughout the day. Although he usually performs no actions and does not desire to bring harm to the player, the headless warrior wields a steel battleaxe with steel plate armor. Said to be a perceptive, omniscient figure, seeing him fumble after his horse makes this clip even more amusing when compared to other notable Skyrim sightings.
In summary, given that The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim recently celebrated its 10-year anniversary, many fans are just delighted to see that the game still has no insufficient remarkable occurrences. After all, it's chaotic yet unforgettable moments such as this that stick around with players long after putting the controller down.
