This mod will always have an up-to-date English localization, as that is what I can provide as its author. I occassionally generate missing translations with ChatGPT to fill in for un-trasnlated languages, however I am always open to community edits or new translations.

If you would like to contribute a new translation, or improve an existing one please feel free to reach out to me or provide a translation file in the same format as one of the existing ones. Found here

Everything is optionally configurable through the ingame mod configuration UI provided by BepinEx.

Otherwise a configuration file located at /BepInEx/config/MidnightsFX.ValheimArmory.cfg contains all of the configuration.

Configuration is server enforced your client will adopt to using whatever configuration is specified on the server when connecting.

Most configuration values are updated in real-time. Tune your weapons quickly!

Current configuration options:

  • Damage
  • Damage per level
  • Recipe
  • Stamina cost
  • Block amount
  • block per level
  • Crafted amount (where applicable)
  • movement speed (where applicable)
  • parry bonus (where applicable)
  • bow draw/crossbow reload time
  • crafting recipe
  • crafting station used
  • min level required to craft
  • recipe enabled
  • item enabled


Q. Valheim Enchanting System doesn't support these weapons?

  • A. There is a default VES config in the VA folder (VES.ValheimArmory.default.yml), it must be moved to the VES config folder. This gives you full control of configurations that are actually applied in regards to VES. The folder you should place this config file in is BepInEx\config\ValheimEnchantmentSystem\AdditionalEnchantmentReqs

Q. Epic Loot doesn't automatically drop these weapons, what gives?

  • A. There is a default Epic Loot config files (EpicLoot_Valheim_Armory.loottables.json, EpicLoot_Valheim_Armory.iteminfo.json) in the VA folder, they must be moved to the Epic loot config patches folder. \BepInEx\config\EpicLoot\patches

Q. Why does disabling the recipe do nothing?

  • A. You must have an item enabled, for the recipe disable flag to do anything. When an item is disabled it is completely removed from the game, so its recipe doesn't matter. Items can be uncraftable, and removed from the game seperately.

Q. I want to edit the text for a weapon, how do I do that?

  • A. You can download a copy of any of the language files available on github and place it at the following location: Valheim\BepInEx\plugins\ValheimArmory\Assets\Translations\YOUR_LANGUAGE_HERE\ValheimArmory.json this will override the default localization for VA for the language specified. This is localization sideloading that is supported through Jotunn I also accept language translation updates, if you want to translate or update an existing translation please reach out on the discord server or open a github ticket.

Q. Why does x weapon look bad?

  • A.
    • This is my first Unity, and Valhiem mod
    • My original goal with modding was to just make a singular new arrow
    • I'm not a gamedev, I suck at textures, modeling and don't know the unity loaders
    • I'm learning as I go, and welcome feedback
    • I do this in my few hours of free time, sometimes I don't have that time

Currently in-progress

Potential Spoilers!
  • Designing Boss Weapons for the mistlands

Boss Weapon Release roadmap

  • Additional weapon types for all existing bosses

The Boss weapon roadmap will take a number of updates. Feel free to submit ideas to the github.

Future Plans

Potential Spoilers!
  • Filling out boss weapons for most/all playstyles (long term)
  • Chitin Shield
  • Named Mace (blackmetal mace)
  • Better VFX for weapons
  • New spear alternatives
  • More magic (eitr) powered weapons (non-staves, post Ashlands update)

Installation (Automatic)

Just download with your favorite modmanager!

Installation (manual)

Toss the ValheimArmory folder and files into your plugins folder. Technically the only thing required is the ValheimArmory.ddl, configs will generate on first run.

Optionally follow the instructions to setup VES or Epic Loot configs.

  • VES or Epic loot configs should be placed in the required locations specified, these configurations are not auto-loaded to prevent this mods defaults from overriding your preferred configuration. Check the FAQ.
