How To Install Valheim Mods

In this guide, you will learn how to install mods and plugins on your Valheim server using BepInEx.

Some mods need to be installed on your local game client too. We suggest using r2modman to toggle your mods and BepInEx on and off.

Installing BepInEx

Before installing any mods or plugins, you must first install BepInEx

  1. Access the Game Host Bros Panel.
  2. Click on your Valheim server.
  3. In the sidebar, navigate to Tools > Mod Manager.
  4. Locate BepInEx and click Install

Installing Plugins

Once BepInEx is installed, you can now add the plugins you wish. We suggest downloading them from Thunderstore. You will also need to know how to upload files to your game server..

  1. Access the Game Host Bros Panel and stop your Valheim server.
  2. Download the plugin you want from Thunderstore, right click and extract it.
  3. Access your Valheim server using SFTP.
  4. Navigate to BepInEx/plugins and upload your extracted plugin folder.
  5. Start your server.

If you get stuck at any time, just reach out to a bro on Discord or via a support ticket.
