Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Galmar Stone-Fist will order you to join the men preparing to attack Fort Hraggstad. When you reach the staging area, your fellow Stormcloaks will storm the fort. Your objective is to eliminate all the Imperial soldiers and your journal will track the percentage of completion. Wooden barricades will block the entrance to the fort—these are easily destroyed in a few hits.

After you have eliminated the Imperials, the quest will be complete and you will have to return to Galmar for the final assault on Solitude to liberate Skyrim from Empire control.


  • The bodies will disappear after a short time, so if you want to loot them move fast.
  • Not all the enemies are present at the start of the mission; more will spawn when certain numbers are killed.
  • The Imperial soldiers will occasionally drop one of the Divines' amulets (excluding Talos).
  • You will generally see surviving Imperial soldiers, even when your screen indicates they are all dead. It is not necessary to kill these to finish the quest.


  • Stormcloaks and Imperials do not show up at Fort Hraggstad. A similar bug can happen at the other fort quests.
    • PC Open the console and type setstage 00083042 10. This should force the Stormcloaks and Imperials to spawn.
    • Walking to the fort from the camp to avoid a load screen also seems to work.
