Valheim is one of the most surprisingly popular survival crafting games to release over the past few years and it land on PC Game Pass. The game effectively drops you into the wilderness with nothing but your wits, and a talking raven to help you survive. As with most survival games, the main point is to create a base and keep yourself alive long enough to complete the game, which in this case involves killing a bunch of powerful animals. If you’ve already spent a lot of time in Valheim already, then you’re probably wondering how to spice your gameplay up a bit, and that’s where console commands come in.

Valheim console commands can help you to completely change the gameplay experience, from making yourself invincible to changing what level your skills are at. If you need to do something new in the game, this is the place to start. We’ve compiled as much as we can below about the various console commands that you can find in the game.

Activating the Console

Valheim Console Commands Flying

As with many titles, you can’t just use the command console in Valheim out of the gate, at least not anymore. You’ll need to apply a launch parameter to make the console available again. In your Steam library, right-click the game and select properties, then in the Launch Options window, enter -console. Then, when you boot up the game, you can tap F5 at any time to bring up the console command window and enter a code from the lists below. You can also do this directly through windows, by creating a shortcut to the .exe file, going into properties, and adding -console at the end.

Useful Valheim Console Commands

There are two main branches of the Console Command tree, useful Commands like these ones we’ve featured here, and cheats, which are sectioned on their own below. it’s important to note the distinction between the two because all of the commands below can be entered as soon as you have the console up and running, but the cheats below require a tertiary command to be entered before they’ll work.

Valheim Emote Console Commands

All of these commands do nothing more than make your character perform some sort of animation, from cheering, to crying, to pointing straight ahead. You can also perform these emotes using the built-in chat function rather than the console command, but it’s nice to have the option.
