Is there a way in Oblivion un-nock an arrow so that I do not have to fire it?

The method used in Skyrim, which is to sheath your weapon, does not work for Oblivion.

No you cannot. There is however a mod that you can use which allows you to do this if you are okay with using mods.

You can access the mod here:


You will need the Oblivion Script Extender, which you can get here:



Confirmed working in Oblivion for PS3:

If you talk to someone, completing dialog un-nocks the arrow. Obviously this may be overly difficult unless you accidentally nock the arrow in a town.
