The Elder Scrolls Anthology may have saved a fan’s life over the weekend when it caught a stray bullet that came through the wall of his apartment.
A user by the name of RabbitMix shared details of the experience on Reddit. They say that there was a sharp pop followed by the sound of breaking glass. Initially, they thought it might be a busted lightbulb.
“I was at my desk playing Prey last night,” they wrote in a post on Imgur, “[and] soon noticed the cloud of drywall dust in the air and a bullet hole to the left of my monitor. I started looking for where the bullet had ended up and my heart sunk as I saw this hole in my Elder Scrolls Anthology.”
It seems as though the round entered the open end of the book-shaped compilation, which includes DVD copies of The Elder Scrolls: Arena, Daggerfall, Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim as well as their various expansions. In this case it looks like Morrowind, including its Bloodmoon expansion, took the brunt of the impact. Obviously, things could have been much worse than the loss of an $80 collector’s edition.
When he realized what had happened, RabbitMix called the police, who soon arrived and took the bullet as evidence.
Bethesda has since reached out and offered to replace the product with an identical copy.
