For some reason I am not able to stagger giants while trying the first version of this shout. I hear the word and see the blue light that appears but nothing happens to my enemy. I tried this on Anise and it works but not on a giant. I should also mention that I havent gone to Hrothgar or Ivarstead yet. Are giants resistant somehow or is there something I need to get from the Greybeards before this will work on everyone?

Working as intended. Fus alone is weaksource. – Gant Jan 31 '14 at 10:59
If the only shout you know is Fus, then stay the hell away from Giants. Unless you want to see Skyrim from 200 feet in the air. – mikeTheLiar Jan 31 '14 at 15:15
Which, to be fair, is lovely. – Krjax Jan 31 '14 at 16:17

To stagger giants, learn and use more words from the Unrelenting force shout. The word Fus alone produces the same effect on giants as a gentle puff of air.

just using "fus" will not work at all. "fus ro" will stagger it. "fus ro dah" will make it go flying backwards.
