Guide: Skyrim Unique Weapons Detailed Locations

There are 80 unique weapons to be found in Skyrim. They are found by completing quests, finishing dungeons, and pickpocketing certain NPC's (to name a few). A majority of these weapons are incredibly strong, giving you a severe advantage on the battlefield.

If you are anything like myself, you'll want to collect all of these weapons, place them in storage, and show them off to your gamer buddies. Okay, maybe not the latter part of that statement... I'm a little extreme. At least you can use the guide below to help you find them all.
