Valheim Armory

Valheim Armory is a continuation of Valheim Additions. A small mod designed to fill gaps in the valheim ecosystem.

The goal of this mod is to create a more diverse but not sprawling selection of weapons to make all playstyles feel fully supported at each level.

This mod is balanced to be mostly lore friendly with a preference for fun and enjoyable scaling and mechanics.

This mod is highly configurable, you can use all of it, parts or tune it as you need.


This mod will always have an up-to-date English localization, as that is what I can provide as its author. However, I do welcome community translations!

If you would like to contribute a new translation, or improve an existing one please feel free to reach out to me or provide a translation file in the same format as one of the existing ones. Found here

Below is more information on all of the items added, what tier they are in, where they are crafted and at what progression point. All of the sections below are expandable to view the details.

Boss Weapons


These weapons are split into two groups, one requiring the workbench and the other the forge. Meaning that some of these weapons will require metals from the black forest.

Silver Atgeir Forge Mountain silver atgeir icon

Greataxes (2H Axes)

Battleaxes are a fun but very challenging playstyle in valheim. They are slow so you generally need to kill your opponets before they can kill you, which happens fast.

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Bronze Lumber Axe Forge Blackforest bronze greataxe icon
Blackmetal Greataxe Forge Mistlands blackmetal greataxe icon

Added Daggers

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Bronze Dagger Forge Blackforest bronze dagger icon
Iron Dagger Forge Swamp iron dagger icon
Silver Dagger Forge Mountain silver dagger icon

Added 2H Daggers

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Rascal Daggers Forge Blackforest rascal daggers icon
Rogue Daggers Forge Swamp rogue daggers icon
Blackguard Runic Daggers Forge Mountain blackguard runic daggers icon
  • Note: 2H Daggers will float infront of item wall mounts due to their separated attachment style. They display normally on an item stand.

The addition of 2H daggers at lower tiers also provides you a way to focus on that playstyle all of the way up till the current end of the game.


Added Crossbows

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Bronze Crossbow Forge Blackforest bronze crossbow icon
Bronze Arbalist Forge Plains bronze arbalist icon

Added Sledges

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Blackmetal Sledge Forge Plains blackmetal sledge icon

Added Shields

Added Greatswords

Name Crafted At Stage Icon

Silver Greatsword Forge Mountain silver greatsword icon

Added Swords

Name Crafted At Stage Icon
Chitin Sword Forge Blackforest chitin sword icon
  • Chitin Sword (Abyssal Sword) is an early game sword sitting between bronze and iron but with the unique difference of inflicting some blunt damage, making it less useless against all of the enemies in the swamp


Everything is optionally configurable through the ingame mod configuration UI provided by BepinEx.

Otherwise a configuration file located at /BepInEx/config/com.midnightsfx.ValheimArmory.cfg contains all of the configuration.

Please note that basically ALL of the configuration is server sided. Which means that it requires a restart of your game to take effect. This allows me to ensure that the server and the client are always in sync with the details of everything- like how much damage you did to that greydwarf.

Current configuration options:

  • Damage
  • Damage per level
  • Recipe
  • Stamina cost
  • Block amount
  • block per level
  • Crafted amount (where applicable)


Q. The bronze crossbow costs dragon tears?

  • A. Delete the config for the bronze crossbow (or your whole config file).

Q. Why does x weapon look bad?

  • A.
    • This is my first Unity, and Valhiem mod
    • My original goal with modding was to just make a singular new arrow
    • I'm not a gamedev, I suck at textures, modeling and don't know the unity loaders
    • I'm learning as I go, and welcome feedback

Currently in-progress

Potential Spoilers!
  • Game engine update, script updates

Boss Weapon Release roadmap

Future Plans

Potential Spoilers!

  • Better VFX for weapons
  • New spear alternatives

Installation (Automatic)

Just download with your favorite modmanager!

Installation (manual)

Toss the ValheimArmory folder and files into your plugins folder. Technically the only thing required is the ValheimArmory.ddl, configs will generate on first run.



- Added initial bonemass boss weapons!
- First 2H warhammer added, likely slightly overpowered. This weapon acts like a 2H axe or sword, but does blunt damage.
- Added silver Atgeir, this is a direct upgrade between Iron & Blackmetal
- Updates to how localizations are added, better support for multiple languages
- Added Russian translation


- Fixed Moders crossbow not being configurable and using the wrong defaults


- Fixed wood bolt triggering the invalid recipe warning
- Fixed a particle mock for arrow feathers not resolving on some versions of valheim
- Rebalance of most boss weapons, and a few outlier non-boss weapons. Recipes are slightly more expensive overall and damage is generall down across the board.
	This primarily brings boss weapons in line with the next tier weapon minus a small bit. The balance change is just to the default config values.
	If you want to keep your weapons more powerful continue using your existing config, defaults will only be applied if you do not have a value set (new or deleted config).


- Updated German localization


- Fixed the antler greataxe being held the wrong way


- 3 new weapons based on the Elder
- 3 new weapons based on the Moder
- new crossbow and a handful of new bolts!
- bugfix for the antler dagger not being impacted by gravity
- fixed the default recipe for 1h bronze dagger


- Finished current german localization
- Updated the surtling core arrow icon


- Added Eikthyr Bow, Dagger, Sword & Greataxe
- Remeshed the Antler Atgeir
- Balance for the Eikthyr weapons is tilted towards overpowered.


- Added Daggers
- Added 2H Daggers

- Significant updates to the configuration code, more things are now configurable!
	- Stamina cost for primary and secondary attacks
	- Crafting costs
	- Where things are crafted at


- Fixed Iron level sword recipe, should now actually require Iron.


- Release! I'm sure its got bugs somewhere


Please report any issues you encounter on the github issue tracker
