This is a guide to hunting Deer in the game Valheim. Learn how to sneak up on Deer and hunt them when they are least expecting it, as well as where to find Deer and what items they drop.
|Enemy Spawn Code||Deer|
Press the Ctrl button to switch into Sneak mode. While in this mode, you can get extremely close to Deer without them noticing you.
Be warned that sneaking does not make you invisible. If a deer sees you, it will be alarmed and run away. Be sure to approach Deer from behind to avoid being seen.
Sneaking will consume stamina while moving. If you Sneak continuously, you will likely run out of Stamina before you reach the Deer.
Note that standing still will restore Stamina even without leaving Sneak mode, so take breaks occasionally to keep your stamina full while stalking a Deer.
When sneaking, you will deal more damage than normal, so you will likely be able to kill the Deer in a single blow. However, if your weapon is not strong enough, you may fail to kill the Deer, and it will run away, foiling your efforts.
If you're struggling to deal enough damage, go near a lake to collect Flint, then craft a Flint Axe and equip it before you aim to start seriously hunting Deer.
The starting area where anyone who enters Valheim for the first time will spawn in. Lush landscapes surrounded by tall and sturdy trees will greet you.
|Black Forest||Boss: The Elder
Dark woods that host a variety of aggressive monsters such as Greydwarves, Skeletons, and Trolls.
|This creature does not appear in any Dungeon.|
|Pre-Eikthyr Raids||Available once you build a base and haven't killed any boss yet.|
If you don't mind using cheats to find it, Deer can also easily be spawned with the console command.
To spawn the enemy, first turn on cheat codes by typing imacheater in the F5 console, and use the spawn Deer command to spawn the enemy.
The Deer creature can drop the following materials. Higher level enemies will typically drop higher quantities of each item.
Level 1: 2
Level 2: 4
Level 3: 8
Level 1: 100%
Level 2: 100%
Level 3: 100%
Level 1: 1 or 2
Level 2: 2 or 4
Level 3: 4 or 8
Level 1: 100%
Level 2: 100%
Level 3: 100%
Level 1: 1
Level 2: 1
Level 3: 1

Level 2: ~50%

Deer Trophies, which can be found as a reward for hunting Deer, are required to summon Eikthyr, the first boss.
Although only two Deer Trophies are needed, these will only drop occasionally on killing a Deer, so you'll need to hunt several before you'll get a shot at Eikthyr. Eikthyr is the only way to obtain Hard Antlers, so it's best to hone your hunting skills early on so you can have plenty of Deer Trophies ready for taking him on multiple times.
