Valheim Cheats Guide: All Console Commands and How to Use Them

Posted on by justin
Sometimes you need a helping hand in Valheim to fight enemies, farm items, and complete objectives, as the game can take significant hours of progressing and grinding along the way. For players who are looking to save time or simply cut corners, here we'll go over all of the Valheim console commands and cheats that players can take advantage of.

How to Use Cheats in Valheim

Valheim Cheats It’s important to mention that Valheim cheats only work in single-player settings. Attempting to use console commands meant for single-player mode in multiplayer scenarios will typically only result in sending normal chats. Players can install mods to extend this functionality but do so at your own risk. Before utilizing cheats and console commands in Valheim, you must first activate Valheim’s console. Generally, you only need to press the “F5” key on your keyboard to make the console appear. But if it doesn’t work, follow these steps:
  1. Close Valheim if it’s running
  2. Go to the Valheim folder in your Steam library
  3. Right-click on the game’s name in the sidebar, then select “Properties”
  4. In the Properties window, select “General,” then go to “Launch Options”
  5. Type “-console” without the quotes under the Launch Options field
If done correctly, return to Valheim, and start a single-player instance. Press the “F5” key on your keyboard, which should now bring up the game’s console. Next, type “devcommands” without the quotes, and press enter. A confirmation should appear, telling you that you can now use cheats in Valheim. Tip: If you’re using an Xbox controller to play Valheim, you can open the game’s console by pressing the Right Bumper, Left Bumper, Right Trigger, and Left Trigger simultaneously. Then, press the Xbox button. Press these buttons again to close the console.
