Valheim: How to Ping the Map

Valheim's world is HUGE, obviously as you discover more areas, you'll see parts of the map revealed.

Often at times if you aren't keeping track you can lose where you are.

When playing with friends it'll just turn into a guessing game until you find each other.

I wonder if there's an easier way to keep track of your location...

How to Ping the Map

As you explore more of the map you'll find yourself travelling long distances.

Sometimes you may even have to make a settlement away from your base.

It can be difficult you remember where everything is.

Luckily you can actually use a Ping to help you figure out how to get somewhere.

Open up your map and click anywhere on it with the middle mouse button.

This will cause a blue ring to appear with your name labelling it.

If you're in coop mode your friends will see it too.

This Ping will remain active for a couple of seconds.

You'll get an idea for which direction your destination is towards.

Fingers crossed a better system will be implemented by the devs but for now, this will have to do!

Valheim is the next Viking title to take Steam by storm, there are plenty of plans for the future with the 2021 roadmap. You can even set up a dedicated server and play with your friends in coop! If bosses interest you, there's already four in the game Eikthyr, the Elder, Bonemass and Modor, you'll require plenty of items along the way like the Swamp Key.
