How to Get Tin Ore

Valheim - How to get tin ore.png

Tin ores are mined from Tin deposits located around bodies of water in the Black Forest biomes. These deposits can be seen near bodies of water. Their names also pop up once you aim at them within melee range. They can be easy to see from afar from their lighter color than normal rocks.

Tin deposits can be mined using Pickaxes. The Antler Pickaxe, in particular, can be crafted early on after defeating Eikthyr.

Bait Troll Attacks

When you are able to find a Troll in the Black Forest Biome, you can bait and evade its attacks on tin deposits. The Troll's attacks can break tin deposits for you to harvest them even before beating the first boss Eikthyr.

Can Be Spawned with Console Command

If you don't mind using cheats to obtain it, Tin Ores can easily be spawned with the console command.

To spawn the item, first turn on cheat codes by typing devcommands in the F5 console, and use the spawn TinOre command to create the item.
