Valheim: Cheats and Console Commands and How to Activate

Valheim: Cheats and Console Commands

In Valheim you can make your Viking life easier with console commands. We have created a Valheim Cheats and Console Commands list for items, weapons, armor, food and more.

With the console commands from Valheim you can make life in the rough Viking world a lot more comfortable. We explain how you enter them and which cheats are available for invulnerability, teleport and spawns of weapons, armor, tools and more.

And before someone shouts “that’s unfair”: The cheats for Valheim that we present here only work in your own world. As soon as you enter a foreign server, the cheat mode is deactivated and only the regular admin commands of the host work, which we also list below.

  • resetenv – Resets the weather
  • players [value] – sets the level of difficulty, 0 resets it

If the search for raw materials is too laborious for you or you need a certain item for your construction project, you can use the cheat to conjure up all items: weapons, armor, raw materials, tools, food and even opponents.

This is how you use spawn cheats:You start the cheat mode as described above. Then you enter »spawn [item] [quantity] [level]«. For item you enter the English name of the desired item, for quantity the number and for level, well, the desired level.

For example:

If you want to have 30 iron bars, enter “spawn Iron 30”, for an iron sword at level 3 you simply type “spawn SwordIron 1 3”.

Important Note: Problems can arise if you use spawn cheats, for example, if you let too many items appear at once. So be a little careful. In an emergency the cheat removedrops removes all objects that are around you on the floor.

How to use Admin Commands in Valheim

To open the command input, you proceed as follows:

  • With Ctrl and F3 you hide your user interface.
  • With F5 you open the console (adjust the start parameters of Steam beforehand!)
  • There you can type in “help” to see a list of all commands.

Valheim Admin Commands

  • help – Displays all available commands
  • kick [name / ip / userID] – Kicks the user
  • ban [name / ip / userID] – Block the user
  • unban [ip / userID] – Unblocks the user
  • banned – Shows a list of all banned users
  • ping – Ping the server to find out your latency
  • lodbias [number] – Sets the level of detail (LOD) based on the distance. Set to 1.5 by default
  • info – Prints system information as a PDF

Just a few days after the start, the first update for Valheim was released, in which the developers directly fulfilled a much-voiced fan request. The Steam hit doesn’t have a final release date yet, it will probably be at the beginning of 2022.
