MOD Description

Fisticuffs is a mod that makes use of the underdeveloped unarmed skill. It adds 6 new tiers of weapons:

  • Wood sprig
  • Studded knuckles
  • Bronze cestus
  • Iron cestus
  • Silver cestus
  • Black metal cestus

and one supporting recipe:

  • Iron chain

The long-term goal of the mod is to provide additional armors, consumables, and even animations to support a more visceral brawler-like playthrough.


  1. Go to BepInExPack Valheim
  2. Download it and follow the installation manual
  3. Drag the unzipped valheim-brawler.dll into -> <Steam Location>\steamapps\common\Valheim\BepInEx\plugin

The next time you start your game, the mod will be enabled. To disable it, just remove it from the mods folder.


Recipes should appear in game through normal play. If you are installing this mod on an existing playthrough, you will have to pick up items or re-order you inventory to learn the new recipes.

Prefab names:

  • WoodKnuckles
  • StuddedKnuckles
  • BronzeCestus
  • IronCestus
  • SilverCestus
  • BlackMetalCestus



  • initial release rebased code to run off Jotunn


  • Fixed some SFX


  • Fixed crafting recipe stations and more sfx


  • Fixed final sfx being broken and double hit noise


  • Fixed being broken on destroy (no longer dissapearing after break)


  • Changed camera to no longer center on character when equipping after complaints


Change forge tier reqs for building so they can pan out to full tier with upgrades etc


Updated lib base to new Jotunn 2.0.5 Enacted config file with in game config options (courtesy of Jotunn) Enacted server sync configs (so servers can enforce item enabled/disabled or recipe volume of things) Enacted version checking (thanks again Jotunn)

Thanks to new Jotunn we can now see our Cestus at the loading screen when the character is holding the weapon. Please ensure you are running this mod on the server you want to connect to as well as the latest Jotunn

This mod is client AND server intended you WILL need it both on your server and clients to run ;)
