Looking to survive the fiercest encounters? Valheim's console command cheats have you covered.

Console commands aren't a new concept in survival games. Toggling these can make even the most challenging title into nothing but happy farming or building simulator. Some just want to get through the plot to see how the story ends. For either party, cheats couldn't be a more perfect solution.

Valheim Cheats: Combat Commands Guide

In order to enable cheats, players need to press the F5 key to bring up the console and enter the phrase "iamacheater" to the input line. This should allow them to take full advantage of all commands available in-game.

Since there are several individual commands, we've compiled a list of the best ones to use in combat.

  • "god"—enable "God Mode" to ignore damage and survive any encounter.
  • "heal"—bring yourself back to full health.
  • "killall"—kill all enemies within a set radius from you.
  • "raiseskill [skill] [amount]"—raise a specified skill to make certain fights or actions easier.
  • "tame"—tame all nearby wild animals, making them your allies in a potential battle.

Players should note that these can only be enabled on a single-player campaign. Cheats like these are explicitly disabled in public lobbies.
