Orcs, also known as Orsimer, named after their homeland, Orsinium in Tamriel are one of ten playable races in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. While they have no passive racial ability, their berserker rage ability makes them worth it.

Orcs also do not need to complete a quest which grants Blood-Kin status (for example "The Forgemaster's Fingers" quest) to gain access to Orc strongholds.

The Orc race is also great as a type of headhunter build using maces and crossbows and the heavy armour tree.
