Valheim Wiki

The Cold Effect is an effect in Valheim.

General information

The cold effect is applied to a character most commonly at night.

It is counteracted by wearing warm clothes, such as the Wolf fur cape, Wolf armor chest, and Lox cape, by standing near objects that produce heat such as the Campfire, a working Smelter or a working Charcoal Kiln, or by consuming a Frost resistance mead.


Despite the Burning effect being "hot," it will not negate the Cold effect. this allows for one, especially when fighting Cultists, to both be on fire and cold at the same time.
