Looking for a guide on warfare and weapons in Valheim? You were taken to Valheim by the winged Valkyries and are now tasked with surviving the Scandinavian wilderness – to face green dwarfs, giant trolls and dangerous rolling logs.

Once you've crafted your first tools in a Valheim workbench and ventured into the wider world, you'll find plenty of resources and all kinds of dangerous enemies guarding them. There are several types of weapons you can craft – daggers, swords, axes, maces, and more – and each is effective against different types of enemies. Blind weapons like sticks are great against skeletons; Cutting them with a sword won't do much. You can tell how effective your weapons are by the color of the damage you inflict; gray means they are resistant and yellow means the attack is super effective.

The body part where you shoot your enemy is also important - so be careful with your aim. For most weapons, a series of left-clicks executes a standard attack combo, your middle mouse button executes your secondary attack, and right-click blocks – this is crucial. If you block at the perfect moment, you get a parry; confuse the enemy for you to strike a critical hit.

To begin with, you can craft weapons using only stone, but as you progress through the game, as you discover new materials and upgrade your workbench, you unlock enhanced versions of each weapon – flint, copper and bronze, iron, silver, and then black metal.

You will also unlock special weapon recipes after collecting rare resources in the game. As Valheim is still in early access, these weapons are subject to regulation in the future, but we'll be sure to keep this guide updated with the latest discoveries.

Swords are one-handed and deal a lot of damage. Your secondary attack with the sword will stun enemies.


Knives or daggers are the lightest weapons available, with the lowest durability cost per swing. They don't slow you down while running either, so they're great for a highly dynamic fighting style. However, they do not hold up very well while parrying as they have a low block power and parry power.

Hint: Fermented mead made from honey can restore your health and stamina mid-fight, or provide crucial situational resistance to frost or poison.

Most importantly, if you attack an enemy with a dagger while you're undetected, you'll deal 10x more stealth attack damage.
