How to exploit the Valheim duplication glitch

In the world of video gaming, glitches are often a source of frustration for players. Issues such as the Valheim incompatible version error can disrupt the flow of gameplay and take away from the overall gaming experience.

However, sometimes glitches can also bring unexpected benefits to players. Such is the case with the recently discovered duplication glitch in Valheim. This glitch allows players to dupe inventory and multiply their resources quickly.

Here are the steps you need to take to take advantage of the Valheim duplication glitch:

  • Put a bunch of items in your inventory you want to duplicate and log out of the world.
  • Navigate to C:\Users\USER\AppData\LocalLow\IronGate\Valheim\characters and copy your character data into another folder.
  • Log back in and put all those items into a chest. Then log back out.
  • Delete your old character files, then move the copied files back to your characters folder.
  • Log back into the world. Your items are still in your inventory and also in that chest. Rinse and repeat!

The Valheim duplication glitch will likely be fixed by the devs soon. So, it's best to take advantage of this useful glitch while it's possible, as there's no guarantee that it will be around for long.

In Valheim, the player's inventory is stored locally on their client side. When hosting a single-player world, the game saves the inventory state upon exiting the world. The glitch takes advantage of this neat loophole.

To exploit the Valheim duplication glitch, players typically begin by accessing the folder on their computer that contains their Valheim character saves. They then create a new folder and copy their character saves into it.

Once this is done, they open the game and proceed to place items into a chest while taking advantage of the game's autosave feature. This trick causes the game to recognize the items in both the player's inventory and the chest, thereby allowing for duplication.
