17 feb 2021 at 21:38

Valheim gained quite a high popularity on Steam immediately after its release. The game was even featured on the store's front page, which made many players aware of this survival game. In addition to interesting gameplay and well-developed survival mechanics, the game also has mods and a large number of cheats and console commands that help and significantly ease various aspects of the game. In this article, we will explore all available cheats and commands for Valheim.

Using cheats: how to use cheats and console commands in Valheim

Many games initially do not support a developer console, which requires downloading various cheats that often contain viruses and miners. However, the Valheim developers took care of the players and included this possibility in the game. The console has several features that we will clarify in the article. It is not difficult to open the console.

Opening the console: simply press the F5 key while in the game, and the developer console will open, allowing you to enter cheats.

But! In order to access full console commands, you need to enter a universal code.

 imacheater or devcommands - the code that needs to be entered in the open console. It means "I am a cheater" in translation. After entering it, you will gain access to other commands, and the full list will be below. If you have already updated the game to version 0.148.6, then enter the second code.

Cheats for single-player mode in Valheim

After performing the aforementioned actions, you can already use these cheats. These commands are suitable only for single-player mode, but there are also specific codes for cooperative play, which we will definitely cover in the article. Meanwhile, here is the full list of cheats for single-player mode in Valheim.

 Note that the square brackets in which various names are written should not be present in the game. In other words, you need to enter any values from the brackets, but you don't need the brackets themselves, as the commands will not work with them.

Cooperative Console Commands and Cheats in Valheim

We have covered cheats for single-player Valheim. This is a complete list. Now let's explore console commands that are suitable for multiplayer or cooperative play. With these console commands, you can effectively manage your server. Unlike the other codes, the codes listed below do not require entering the "imacheater" command.

Console CommandFunction
helpThe most basic console command that opens a list of all available codes for convenient use.
saveSaves the game and server.
pingAllows you to check the ping of your server.
infoA simple command that provides basic information about the game and the system.
lodbias [0-5]Allows you to set the level of detail bias. Lower values make textures closer to the player render better, while distant landscapes become less visible.
kick [player nickname or Steam ID or IP]Simply kicks any player from the server. You can use either their nickname, Steam ID from the Steam store, or their IP address.
ban [player nickname or Steam ID or IP]Same as the previous command, but it also bans the player's account. If you ban by IP, the player with that IP will no longer be able to join your server.
unban [player nickname or Steam ID or IP]If you used the previous command to ban a player but changed your mind and want to unban them, this command will come in handy.
bannedAfter entering this command, a complete list of banned players will be displayed, which you can use for unbanning, for example.

These are all the console commands for cooperative mode or multiplayer in Valheim.

To use some of these commands (Kick, Ban), you need to have administrator rights on the server.

Creative Mode: How to Enable and Its Features

Let's now look at how you can enable creative mode in Valheim and the features it provides.

 Enter the console command "imacheater" to activate the cheat, then open the console again with the F5 key and enter the following command: "debugmode". There you go, you have activated creative mode!

That's straightforward, but what advantages does this mode offer? Actually, quite a lot!

  • You gain access to the flying mode without using other console commands. Pressing the Z key activates this mode, allowing you to fly without any restrictions.
  • There's also a convenient way to use the "killall" command with a single key (default: K). When pressed in this mode, all enemies within your field of view will be instantly killed.
  • Pressing B will stop resources from being consumed, allowing you to build infinitely. Another notable aspect is that you no longer need workbenches for crafting in this mode, and you have access to all resources in the game.
Keep in mind that you won't become immortal. It will be difficult to kill you due to flying, but it can still be done. Use the separate console command "god" for immortality.
