Valheim (Image credit: Windows Central / Zackery Cuevas)

Valheim is the Viking survival simulator we didn't know we wanted. Already one of the best survival games on PC, Valheim is a Norse-inspired survival game that sets players free across the wild and untamed tenth world. With nothing but the clothes on their back, players must hunt for food, build their own shelter, and tame wild animals if they ever hope to carry out Odin's request to destroy the Forsaken Beast of myth and legend.

The first thing you'll need in Valheim is a good weapon to protect yourself and the right tools to set up camp. Here's every weapon and tool available in Valheim, and what you'll need to make them.

Weapons

These are all of the clubs, spears, swords, and knives currently found in Valheim. One-handed weapons can be dual-wielded with a torch or a shield, but two-handed weapons cannot.
