Quick WalkthroughEdit

  1. Get the bounty letter from an innkeeper, Jarl, or steward.
  2. Go to the giant camp and kill the giant.
  3. Return to the Jarl or the Jarl's steward for the reward.

Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Speaking with any innkeeper, Jarl, or Jarl's steward about work may lead them to give you a letter of bounty requesting you to kill a giant. This will give you a miscellaneous objective to kill the giant in a specific camp. Head to the camp specified in the letter and kill the marked giant (there may be multiple giants, but you only have to kill the marked one). Once the giant is killed, you can return to the Jarl or steward for your 100 gold reward.


  • Sometimes the Jarl may request to kill another giant in a camp previously cleared. This is not a bug. New giants will be spawned and will be correctly associated with markers, killing and quest updates.


  • The objective "Collect bounty from Skald" may not clear from quest list. This bug is due to the quest pointer completing stage 100 when you talk to Skald instead of stage 101.
    • PC Only This bug is fixed by version 1.0 of the Unofficial Skyrim Patch.
    • PC A possible workaround is to use the console command setObjectiveCompleted BQ03 101 1 before turning in the quest to Skald, to clear the journal entry. Then just talk to Skald to get your bounty.
