Valheim Cheats, Console Commands & Admin Commands

In this post, you will find all the Valheim cheats you can use on single-player mode, along with all the server admin commands you can run as a server administrator in multiplayer.

Valheim is an upcoming survival and sandbox video game by the Swedish developer Iron Gate Studio. The game was published by Coffee Stain Studios, and it is available on early access since February 2nd, 2021 for Windows and Linux on Steam.


How to Use Cheats and Console Commands in Valheim

Whether it's enabling god mode, killing all nearby enemies, spawning unlimited items, banning players with server admin commands, starting random events, and even entering Creative Mode, IGN has you covered as we guide you through everything you need to know about enabling cheats and using console commands in the survival PC game, Valheim.

How to Enable Valheim Cheats

  • To get started with cheats in Valheim you will have to bring up the game's developer using F5 console and use console commands.
  • Next enter “imacheater” to enable Valheim cheats. As with many competitive games the cheats will only work in single-player mode. Note: To turn cheats off just type “imacheater” once more in the console command box.

How to Spawn Items, NPC & Enemies in Valheim

In order to spawn items through the console command cheat, you will need to first enable cheats by typing “imacheater” as we explained in the prior section. Once you have successfully enabled cheats, you will need to use the following code to spawn any item that you specify:

  • spawn [item] [quantity] [level]

For instance, you can spawn 100 Amber using:

  • spawn Amber 100

Note: Using item spawn commands, especially in large quantities may introduce bugs and glitches to your world. Use the spawn command at your own risk and with measure.

Of course, to be able to spawn any item, character, or mob you need to know each one's code. In the next section, you will find all the spawnable item & mob codes in Valheim.
