Valheim has become an unprecedented success, with the work of only a five-person development team paying off big time with over five million sales.


The survival game sees players stuck in a world inspired by the Norse world Yggdrasil, where the evil of Valheim must be defeated in order to enter Valhalla.

However, unlike real Vikings you will have the option to use cheat codes, which can do everything from changing your appearance to activating the classic god mode.

We're sure Odin won't mind - here is the full list of Valheim cheats and how to use them.

How to use cheats in Valheim

Using cheats for Valheim on Steam or Game Pass isn't quite as simple as punching a code into an in-game menu. We'll share how to activate the cheats for both versions.

For the Steam version, you'll need to activate the in-game console by setting it as a launch option in Steam. Do this by right-clicking Valheim in your Steam library and selecting "properties". In the "general" tab, find the "launch options" field - punch in "-console", close the tab, open the game, and you should be good to go!

For Game Pass, you'll also have to activate the in-game console. In the game's installation folder, find the Valheim.exe file, right click it, and select "create shortcut". Right click the shortcut (wherever you saved it), and select "Properties". In the "shortcut" tab, add "-console" to the end of the Target field, click "apply", then "OK". Once you launch the game from the shortcut, you should be all good to cheat away.
