The portal in Valheim is very useful, it allows you to fast-travel large distances that would usually take up a lot of time. However, when you fast-travel or use the portal, you cannot take everything with you. If you have Tin ore, Tin, Copper ore, Copper, Bronze, or Silver ore on you the teleportation device won’t work. However, there is a bug in the game that allows you to transport metals to your home base, even the metal that are not permitted in the game. So, we suggest you use the bug before the developers find and patch it. Keep scrolling and we will show you how to take metals through the portal in Valheim.
How to Exploit Valheim Bug and Take Metal through Portals
There are a number of reasons why the developers don’t want to allow portals to teleport the metals, but regardless, it’s a huge ask of the players time. If you are a casual player spending an hour a day, you would not want to spend that taking resources back to the home base. Thankfully, the bug in the game allows users to take metal through portals. Here is how it works.
Open the Portal and if you place the metal in the Inventory, you will not be able to go through the portal, but Ctrl + Click to put the metal from the cart/storage to the Inventory and you will be able to go through the Portal and take the metal with you.
When you emerge at the other, check that you have the metal and you probably have the metal or metals in your inventory, at least at the time of writing the post.
This is a pretty big exploit and we are pretty sure the developers will patch it quickly. So, if you are at this page, use the bug to progress in the game while you can.
