How to Destroy And Delete Items in Valheim

There is no option in Valheim to destroy or delete an item as of now unless you use Valheim Console Commands. You can drop an item if your inventory is full or you can Split Item Stacks rather than dropping an item and being sorry about it later. Splitting an item stack is the best way to divide the resources with your teammates when a resource is necessary for building or crafting something important. Here we have a detailed guide on How to Split Item Stacks. If you don’t want an item anymore, then you can drop it in water. You can also drop all the unwanted items in the open ground and use F5 to bring up the command window. Make sure to enable console commands by reading this article here.
