A classic Skyrim meme returned this week in Starfield when TikTok user dawidp0lska posted his video bringing back the 'basket on head' trick from the Bethesda classic. This time, Starfield players have replicated the trick using cooking pots to stop NPC's viewing their thieving ways.

In Skyrim, players found hours of entertainment picking up baskets to sit on the heads of unaware NPC's throughout the game. This trick would then allow items to be stolen from around the area, which would usually have resulted in jail time.

Dawidp0lska uploaded a video showcasing how to use the cooking pot in Starfield similarly. Pick the item up and carefully drop it over a character's head to blind them from your criminal deeds. Or do it for the lulz.

Either way, this new trick may get patched out as Bethesda added in a fix where the NPC's of Skyrim would shake the standard bucket off their head. This didn't stop things as players soon discovered a workaround using the larger buckets in the game to block their vision once more.
