While it is entirely possible to play Valheim on your own, it’s better as a multiplayer experience. Therefore, you’re going to be jumping online to run around in servers that aren’t connected locally, which could see some issues crop up, just as they do in any online game. If you’re having some connection issues, here’s everything you need to know about how to show ping in Valheim.
You might want to check your ping if you’re having connection issues. It’ll give you a better idea of how good your connection is and how you’re able to remedy the issues.
How to Show Ping in Valheim
Thankfully, there’s a way to have your ping showing at all times in Valheim. What you’ll need to do is open the console commands box by pressing F5, which is where cheats will be typed in if you’re looking to use them too.
All you need to do is type ‘ping’ into the box and press enter and you’ll be all set, your ping showing at the top of the screen. You’ll be able to see how stable your connection is as you play from that point on.
There’s no need to enter ‘imacheater’ for this input, as you would for most other console commands, since it’s not cheating, it’s just a tool that’s quite useful.
If you want to take the ping indicator off your screen, all you need to do is type ping in again. If you want to take a look at the other tools available to you via the console commands in Valheim, type ‘help’ into the box to bring up a list of all the possibilities that don’t include cheating.
