Valheim‘s teleportation system may not be the best feature in the video game developed by Iron Gate, but understanding how it works is mandatory; and while we will not discuss Portals, in the guide below I’ll tell you how the Valheim Teleporting Cheat works, and why it is so cool to use it.
As you most likely know, in order to move from one point to another in Valheim, you need to build Portals.
These structures are unlocked when you collect your first Fine Wood.
Upon unlocking the Valheim Portal recipe, you’ll need the following materials to build one:
- 10 X Greydwarf Eye
- 20 X Fine Wood
- 2 X Surtling Core
Next, you’ll need the same amount of crafting materials to build another Portal and connect it to the first one. This is done by setting the same tag to both portals. Let’s say “home1”.
Now your portals are connected and you can teleport between them. Except that sometimes you can’t, as you can see below.
An Item Prevents You From Teleporting
When the message above appears on your screen it means that you can’t step through a Portal.
Why is that? Or what does “An item prevents you from teleporting” mean in Valheim?
This means that one of the objects in your inventory doesn’t allow you to fast travel. And that item in my case was a Tin Bar; however, there are other items that will deny your teleportation.
Below, you can see the list of all Valheim items that can’t be teleported or items that won’t allow you to fast travel using Portals.
- Tin Ore
- Copper Ore
- Scrap Iron
- Black Metal Scrap
- Black Metal
- Silver Ore
- Dragon Egg
You can see that the list of items and crafting materials is quite long, and these objects complicate things a bit because you’ll have to carry them back to your base using a Longship if they are on another island, or simply by walking back to your main settlement.
Now, since the amount of crafting materials you’ll have to gather in the game is quite impressive, let’s see how the Vaheim Teleporting Cheat works; because as you know there are several console commands you can use.
How To Use The Valheim Teleport Cheat For Teleporting Everything
From the beginning, it’s worth mentioning that this cheating method also works while playing with friends; however, it is recommended that you use it in single-player mode, for obvious and ethical reasons.
Activating Cheat Mode In Valheim
The first thing you’ll want to do is to return to your main settlement and activate the Valheim Cheat Mode:
- Press F5 to bring up the console
- Type imacheater
- Now you’ll see a short message: Cheats: True
- Additionally, you can activate the God Mode by typing god. This step however is not mandatory but recommended
Recording Your Settlement’s Coordinates
The next step is to record your settlement’s location. Or to know your Valheim coordinates because you will use them to teleport back.
- Open your console again by pressing F5
- Type pos to see three varialbes: X, Y, Z
The trick here is quite easy to understand. The pos command tells you where your character is located, and since my character is inside the settlement it means that both of them have the same coordinates.
After you type the pos command, the only variables you need to remember are X and Z. If needed write them down. In this case, X is -379 and Z is -392.
Find The Materials You Want To Farm & Teleport
Now that you know where you have to return, it’s time to go after the materials you need. If let’s say you want to farm Copper you’ll go to a Black Forest biome.
Once you find the spot where the resource is located, you’ll once again record its location by typing pos.
To better understand this, in the image below, you can see my character in front of a Copper deposit.
The X and Z coordinates of this deposit are -477 and -592.
Obviously, the next step is to stock up on the resources you need. In this example, we are talking about Copper which you may remember can’t be teleported according to its description.
Except that it can. And not only Copper. All Valheim crafting materials can be teleported including Tin, Iron, Silver, and Black Metal. Simply by using this cheat.
How To Teleport Everything In Valheim (Tin, Copper, Iron, Silver & Black Metal)
Now that we have the maximum amount of Copper that my character can carry; is time to get back to the settlement using the coordinates we have found earlier.
- Press F5 again to open the console
- Type goto x,z where X and Z are the coordinates of your settlement. In my example, these coordinates as explained are -379 and -392. This means that the console command I had to use is goto -379,-392
As you can see in the image below, this command allows you to instantly teleport in Valheim along with all materials that can’t be teleported by normal means or through Portals.
Finally, after unloading the goods, you can return to the same spot and keep farming. This is done using the second set of coordinates. For this example, the Copper deposit is located at -477 and -592. So the next command in my case is goto -477,-592
And that’s it friends! Now you know how the Valheim Teleporting Cheat works, and also how to teleport basically everything at any given time, even if you are on the other side of the map.
