How to Reset Your Valheim Character

If for whatever reason, you wish to start fresh on a character - then you may wish to delete it, so you can start over with a new character of the same name.

Warning: Deleting your Valheim Character is permanent and cannot be undone. Remember that your inventory and skills are stored in your character; so if you delete it, all of that will be lost!

How to Delete your Valheim Character

  1. Launch the game, and click Start Game.
  2. On the Character Selection Screen, select the Character you wish to delete.
  3. At the bottom right of the page, click Remove.
  4. Click Yes when the Remove Character confirmation screen appears.

You can now go ahead and create a new Valheim Character with the same name if you wish to do so.
