A full list of Valheim admin commands, cheats, and chat commands
We have compiled a full list of Valheim admin commands, cheats, and chat commands available to players. Before you get started administrating your Valheim dedicated server, there are a few quirky things to note:
devcommandscommand: This command works only on local game servers and is not available for dedicated servers. When the
devcommandscommand is enabled on a local Valheim server, it enables much of the functionality you’d expect to have as an admin of a dedicated server, such as spawning items, teleporting, flying, god mode, and more.
devcommandscommand effectively enables Valheim cheats.
- Certain console commands are available to normal players, without any roles, which can be entered in the in-game console.
- There are a handful of chat-based commands that are available to all players and admins and require no roles to execute. Be sure to enter these into the game chat and not the in-game console.
How do you use Valheim admin commands and cheats?
The in-game console can be opened by pressing the
F5 key while in the game. You can type or paste commands and their parameters into this console and press the
Enter key to execute the command. Many Valheim admin commands require a player to have both the admin role and the
devcommands command enabled to work. These requirements are detailed in the data table below. If you don’t know how to add admins to a Valheim server, we got you covered, as well as a guide for how to join your Valheim dedicated server.
