The Iron Sledgehammer in Valheim is one of the best AoE weapons that you can get your hands on in the game. You can get this hammer by proceeding a little in the game, and after beating a couple of bosses. As you proceed in the game you will want to get some more powerful weapons in your armory/ inventory.

Valheim Iron Sledgehammer

This massively powerful weapon in Valheim deals 50 damage per hit and is effective among the AoE weapons to take out those pesky enemies. You need to collect certain items in Valheim to craft Iron Sledgehammer, which are mentioned below:

  • 10x Ancient Barks
  • 30x Iron
  • 4x Ymir’s Flesh
  • Draugr Elite Trophy

There are several ways to collect these items in-game. For Ymir’s flesh, you will have to find the secret vendor as it can only be obtained from him. This secret vendor is a bit difficult to find because he spawns randomly on the map. The game allows you to buy only one Ymir’s flesh at a time so if you want multiple Ymir’s flesh, you can purchase one and throw it on the ground and purchase another. You can pick up the thrown flesh later on in the game.

Getting ironbarks and ancient barks is easy but for the Draugr Elite trophy, you will have to slay down a Draugr elite by finding it on the map. It is usually on the southern side of the map in the brown swamps area.

How to Craft

After collecting all the resources, you will then need to go to the crafting menu and use Forge to forge an Iron Sledgehammer, and you will now find it in your inventory after a few seconds.
