For many who play The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, stealth is a key factor, and one mod adds something else when it comes to cracking a locked chest. Immersion in general is important for gamers, and the epic 2011 Bethesda game is considered one of the most exciting open-world games. The ability to sneak and sneak into private property is a passing style that many fans choose, which often means that lockpicking skills are a requirement, although not in this case.
It’s true that some Skyrim players make several mistakes when playing a secretive character, for example, not taking advantage of alchemy or not having a backup plan in case the meanness fails. There are many opportunities to take on the role of a thief, for example, to join the Thieves Guild or play as a ruthless killer. Anyone who goes down this path knows that there are treasures in locked chests or behind locked doors, and this mod gives an alternative way to open someone’s chest without the obligatory lock pick.
This Skyrim mod is simply called “Locked Chests with Keys”, and it does exactly what it says on the jar. Created by JaySerpa, who is no stranger to creating many interesting modifications for TES5, now players have a chance to get into the chest by simply finding the key intended for it. This does not mean that locks cannot be broken, but if someone turns out to be without the necessary tools or skills, the key to the locked chest must be somewhere nearby. However, it should be said that not all chests will have a key, for example, some of the main ones, but now there are hundreds that do it thanks to this mod.
As mentioned above, JaySerpa is quite famous for its interesting ideas. For example, a recent mod for Skyrim allows players to spy through keyholes. Again, this applies to those who prefer a stealthy passage, giving them the opportunity to see what is inside someone’s house before they decide whether to break in or not.
After more than a decade, it’s nice to see that there are still people adding to Skyrim or just tweaking it for a better experience. Since The Elder Scrolls 6 is supposedly still in the pipeline, it will probably be a long time before the next installment of the series appears. In the meantime, people like JaySerpa will probably keep releasing new mods to help keep TES5 in the gaming realm.
Skyrim Special Edition is available for PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
