There is an inventory system on Valheim. With it, you can bring the item and equipment along with you. Of course, your inventory has also been limited as you can only put 300 items. If you bring more than that, your character will be slowed and you can’t fight. It makes you prone to danger if you meet monsters on the way. Therefore, we will learn how to craft a chest in Valheim, another inventory to also store your item.

Let’s check the material needed and how to make it!

What is Valheim Chest?

Chests can be used to store items while you go on adventures, making sure you have plenty of room in your inventory to collect anything on your venture, or can be found in various Points of Interest (POI) with some valuables inside.
