Valheim, 2020's breakout Viking survival game is back with its latest Heart and Home update. If this is your first time exploring the game, you'll soon realize things may get a little intense. You're slaying monsters in the Meadows just fine then as you enter the Black Forest biomes, some random troll just appears out of nowhere and whack you right back to spawn.

To fight the tougher challengers in high-level biomes, you'll need to upgrade your items to match. Or, if you're lazy, slap in a full Valheim cheats list and become the immortal god of this game!

However, we have to warn you that you're using cheats at your own risk. Since Valheim is still in Early Access, cheat codes may negatively affect your save or even ruin your character. With that said, let's dive into the Valheim console commands.

Valheim Cheats List For Single-Player

Since its last version, Valheim developers have slightly tweaked the cheat system. Now, in order to use cheats in Single-Player, you must set it as a launch option in Steam. By default, the command console is locked. That means you cannot use cheats until you reset your launch option.

This is just a fraction of the item list that you can spawn in Valheim. However, these are by far the most useful ones in the game. Other items whose names include the "_" should be avoided. Some players reportedly crash the game or suffer from corrupted files after trying to spawn these items.

If you plan to use cheats, we suggest creating a new character instead of using your existing one. Should things go sideways, you won't lose a character that you've already poured in a lot of time and effort.

Since Valheim saves characters and worlds separately, you can take advantage of this to cheat even more. Switch to your Single-Player world, use commands to spawn all kinds of items you want. Stuff the items onto your inventory and bring them to a Multi-Player server.


How Do You Cheat To Fly In Valheim?

Answer: You can use Valheim console commands to fly in Single-Player mode or Multi-Player mode (Host only). Here's how to do it:

  1. Enable console commands from Steam Library.
  2. Press F5 on your keyboard to bring up the console.
  3. Type in "debugmode". Hit Enter. You're now in the Valheim creative mode.
  4. Press Z to start flying. When you hit the Spacebar, you'll fly higher. Press Ctrl to decrease altitude.
  5. Type in "debugmode" and hit Enter again to exit the Creative Mode.

How Do You Spawn Money In Valheim?

The only currency in Valheim is called "coins". And of course, you can use cheats to get an infinite supply of them. On a Multi-Player server, this wouldn't be fair for others joining the same session. However, we don't see why you should not get rich on your own Single-Player server.

Valheim Coins
Be the richest Viking who has ever lived!

Here's how to spawn infinite coins in Valheim:

  1. Press F5 on to bring up the console.
  2. Type in "spawn Coins X". Replace the X with a number of coins.
  3. Hit Enter. A stack of coins will magically appear next to you.
  4. Continue using the commands to spawn coins to meet your desire.
  5. Press F5 to close the console.


  • Don’t try to spawn way too many coins at once. If you attempt to go with huge amounts such as 999999, the game will crash.
  • Ideally, spawn any items, including coins, in small increments up to 1000 only. You can do so multiple times to avoid the game crashing.

How Do You Spawn The Best Weapon In Valheim?

You can use the spawn commands to spawn the best equipment the game has to offer. In the latest Heart and Home update, Iron Gate introduced the new Crystal Battleaxe. You can obtain this weapon for free!

The command for spawning weapons is: "spawn [item name] [quantity]".

Valheim Tiger Tank
Let your imagination run wild!

Here are our recommendations for the best weapons in Valheim. You can just copy and replace them into the command.

  • AtgeirBlackmetal
  • Battleaxe
  • BowDraugrFang
  • KnifeBlackMetal
  • MaceSilver (Frostner - the best mace in the game)
