This a comprehensive guide on how to take the Best Screenshots in Valheim. Read on to learn how you can up the ante of your Screenshot game.

How to Take the Best Screenshots

Go Fullscreen Mode

Sometimes booting up the game tosses you into Windowed mode which wouldn't look good in a screenshot. There are two ways you can alter this. One is by pressing ALT + Enter which is the universal button combo to go Fullscreen Mode in any game.

Another is by going to the in-game settings and toggling Fullscreen Mode on. You can do this by opening Settings then going to Graphics, ticking the Fullscreen, then pressing OK.

Turn the Hud Off

Buttons to Press
Ctrl + F3

We swear this is not an ALT + F4 joke! One way to spice up your screenshot game is by choosing to turn off your hud while playing. Granted, doing this while in the middle of a fight may throw you off, but you can easily toggle it back on. If you want to know more about other controls, click the link to our guide below!

List of Controls

Use Free Fly Mode

The freefly cheat code is a neat tool to have if you are looking to make more artistic screenshots. The freefly cheat code acts like a free camera where your POV is separated from your usual hovering 3rd-person perspective.

You can activate this by launching the game with the launch parameters -console, pressing F5 to get into console command mode, typing devcommands followed by freefly, then pressing enter. After that, just roam to your heart's delight. To learn the other cheats in-game and how to use the console, read the article we made by clicking the link below!

Free Fly Mode Limits

There are a few limitations that Free Fly Mode has, one being that if you stray too far from your character, chunks of the map will not load thus halting you from going any further. Keep this in mind whenever you try on Free Fly Mode.
