This mod requires the following mods to function

denikson-BepInExPack_Valheim-5.4.1901 icon

BepInEx pack for Valheim. Preconfigured and includes unstripped Unity DLLs.

Preferred version: 5.4.1901
ValheimModding-Jotunn-2.9.0 icon

Jötunn (/ˈjɔːtʊn/, 'giant'), the Valheim Library was created with the goal of making the lives of mod developers easier. It enables you to create mods for Valheim using an abstracted API so you can focus on the actual content creation.

Preferred version: 2.9.0


Pvp in vanilla Valheim is quite boring and monotonous. The mod was created to fix it!

Battle Status

A viking who commits an act of aggression towards another viking will now receive the Battle status effect. While the viking is in battle, he cannot teleport. And if he decides to escape from the battlefield by leaving the game, everyone in discord will immediately find out) Because a viking never runs away from battles!

Tamed animals are now useful

They now know how to protect the ward. Any hostile viking in the ward zone will be immediately attacked by tamed animals that guard it!

Ping of death on the map

If a viking is dead, all other vikings in the detection radius will immediately know about it. And they will be able to steal loot from the grave, perhaps? Or wait for the owner?

Swords are no longer meta!

Vanilla swords are the most unbalanced weapons for PvP. To fix this, the mod added the ability to change the angle of attack and damage from an alternative sword attack. It is highly recommended, because this will add to the list of weapons that can be used effectively in PvP.

Customizable boss powers

Boss powers are also too unbalanced for PvP, so the mod has the ability to adjust the duration and recovery time of each boss power.

Other features:

  • if the player connects to the server where the mod is installed, the mod configuration is automatically synchronized with the configuration on the server
  • it is possible to make the game console unavailable, which may be useful for playing on the server
  • for more convenience, it is possible to reset the cooldown of the boss's power automatically when changing power
  • the mod has the ability to show a kill feed in the discord channel
Mod API (for modders) Client-side. On the client-side there is the ability to track the killing of creatures and players. It can be used, for example, for a kills counter and statistics.
//	called by the owner of the location when some creature, including the player, dies 
CharacterKillTracker.OnCharacterDead += (killedCharacter, killer, weapon) =>
	//  some logic

//	called when a player kills some creature, including another player
CharacterKillTracker.OnCharacterKilled += (characterName, weapon) =>
	//  some logic

Server-side. All kills, including creature kills, can also be tracked on the server-side

KillFeed.OnCharacterKilled += (killData) =>
	if (killData.characterIsPlayer)
		//  killed player
		var zdo = killData.characterZdo;
		var peer = killData.characterPeer;

	if (killData.attackerIsPlayer)
		//  someone killed by player
		var zdo = killData.attackerZdo;
		var peer = killData.attackerPeer;
