How to Use Admin Commands on your Valheim Server

Admin commands are exclusive commands available for Valheim server administrators. There is a wide availability of commands for Valheim server administrators, ranging from kicking and banning players to enabling god mode.

Important: In order to run any admin commands you will need to be connected as an administrator.

Enabling In-Game Console

Before you can enter any console commands in-game, you will need to be connected as an administrator, and have the console startup parameter enabled.

  1. From your Steam Library, Right-Click Valheim and click Properties.
  2. Under launch options, enter -console.
  3. Launch Valheim.

Available Admin Commands

To use a command in-game, you will need to open the in-game console and enter your desired command. For this example, we will be using the save command.

There are dozens of commands that a Valheim server administrator can use, so we highly recommend you visit this wiki page for a full list of console commands available.

Important: By default, cheat commands are not available on multiplayer servers, however, they can be enabled using the Server Devcommands plugin.
  1. Connect to your Valheim server with admin permissions.
  2. Press F5 to open the in-game console.
  3. Enter your desired command.
