How to use Dev/Cheat Commands on your Valheim Server

Console commands are typically used by admins to affect gameplay, moderate, and view information on servers. With Vanilla Valheim, players can't use cheat commands on Valheim servers, however with the use of the BepInEx plugin Server devcommands, admins now have access to this feature.

Server devcommands allow players to use commands such as fly, god mode, spawning items, and much more on multiplayer Valheim servers. It requires both a client-side install, server-side install and admin permissions to the player using it.

A full list of available commands can be found on this Wiki page.


Before you install the plugin to your server, you are required to complete the following knowledgebase articles.
