How to Use Cheats and Console Commands in Valheim

To use cheats in Valheim, you must use a console command that enables them.

How to Enable Valheim Cheats

  • To get started with cheats in Valheim, you must 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

To spawn items through the console command cheat, you must 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 items & mob codes in Valheim.
