How to Activate 3RD Person Mode:
Simply press the Right Stick Down (Or R3 if on PS3), and this will toggle between First and Third Person
What do I do if it doesn't work?
- Activate the key when still, not when moving, attacking or performing any action
- Sheath your weapons/spells. This will also allow you to look at the front of your character
What if that STIIL doesn't help?
The issue is most probably occuring because of a fault in the motor sensor that detects the push of the Right Stick. Try with another controller, and see if that stops the problem.
Alternatively, try another game that you know uses the right stick push to do an action (e.g. COD/Battlefield push for Sprint) and see if it works there.
- If it does work there, there is an issue with your Skyrim and you should reinstall the game (deleted the game data files). To be sure, try the disc on another friends console and see if the problem persists there
- If it doesn't work there, there is an issue with either the controleer (very probable) or the console itslef (very unlikely). Try your controller on a friends console and see if the button works on their games on their console. If it does, then there is an issue with the XBOX receiving the input. If it failed on your friends console like your own, then its a controller problem.
