This page lists all of the Skyrim item codes (also known as Form IDs or Base IDs) for weapons, along with the stats you need to compare the amount of damage, the value and the weight of each weapon, so that you can easily add these weapons to your inventory.
Skyrim has more weapons than the average player will know what to do with. Most players will probably pick a favorite or two, and a favorite combat style, and never even try most of the weapons that the game has to offer.
Unlike previous Elder Scrolls title Oblivion, weapons are not damaged by use, eliminating the need to repair them. Instead, through Skyrim's crafting system, you have the ability to improve your weapons. This ruined some of the role playing realism that some players enjoyed in Oblivion, as weapons should be damaged as your character battles with enemies. On the positive side, Skyrim introduced the ability to dual wield one-handed weapons, and generally improved the combat system substantially.
The complexity of Skyrim's weapon choice lies in the abundance of combinations of weapon types, weapon materials or makes, enchantments and improved weapon grades or conditions. Weapon types that you can search for here include Arrow, Axe, Battleaxe, Bow, Club, Dagger, Greatsword, Mace, Pickaxe, Staff, Sword, War Axe and Warhammer. Weapon materials or makes that you can search for here include Ancient Nord, Blades, Bound, Daedric, Dwarven, Ebony, Elven, Falmer, Forsworn, Glass, Hunting, Imperial, Iron, Nightingale, Nord Hero, Orcish, Silver, Steel and Skyforge Steel.
Bethesda was not always consistent in their spelling. As long as you use the search terms above, you should find all the items. For example, if you search for "Battle Axe" you will only see a few items that were inconsistent. But if you search for "Battleaxe", you'll see a ton of items. For another example, they used the opposite spelling for "War Axe" as listed above, which will show you all of them, while "Waraxe" will not.
There are far too many enchantment types to mention, but you can use the filter above to see just enchanted weapons. The item grades or conditions of weapons include Fine, Superior, Exquisite, Flawless, Epic and Legendary, but please note that you cannot search for these here. Upgrading your weapon's condition is handled by the game logic - the incredible number of variances this would create would be too much to store and manage in the default set of weapons in the game's item database.
Skyrim has two ranged weapon types that require ammunition, or ammo - Bows, and Crossbows. Crossbows were added by Dawnguard, and will only be available if you have that DLC. Bows use Arrows for ammunition, and Crossbows use Bolts for ammunition. You can use the Ammunition filter, or search for "ammo", to see all the different types of Arrows and Bolts, their stats and their codes.
Skyrim's first DLC, Dawnguard, added the Crossbow weapon type, as well as the Aetherium, Dawnguard and Dragonbone weapon materials or makes.
