How to Duplicate Any Item in Valheim
1. Making Friends
The first thing you’ll need to do to duplicate any item in Valheim, is to join a friends game. You could also join a random players game. But, this is going to have you leaving and coming back at one point, so you’re going to want full control over the game. If possible, join a friend.
2. Quiet Time
Wonder off on your own and find a secure building. Make sure there aren’t any other players in your vicinity, for two reasons. The first being, they could be sneaky and steal from you. Secondly, the location won’t be affected by the glitch if somebody is stood with you.
It might also be worth checking the area for monster nests. It would be extremely frustrating to come back to all of your items being smashed by Greylings.
