    Does weight affect anything beside walking speed ?

    I'm playing 2 handers builds now and maces have a base dmg superior to axe and swords so I guess the heavy weight they have must hurt me somewhere ?

    I guess it is the same for heavy armor vs light armor ? Is it just a mather of "sneak" ability ?

    Good question.

    Without doing any deep research, I do know for a fact that you are slower with your weapon drawn, I don't think it matters what kind of weapon, however I can't answer for sure.

    They changed the way armor is involved in sneaking.

    The Old Way: Boot Weight

    The Skyrim Way: All armor weight is considered when sneaking.

    The weight of the armor you're wearing (and, I think, the weapon(s) you're wielding) affects how fast your stamina drains when sprinting. But I don't think the type of weapon you're using affects movement speed; it should be the same whether wielding a dagger or a greatsword. I'll test it tonight though.
