Were to Find Flint

Flint is found in the meadows biome in Valheim. This resource appears as a small white/grey stone found on the ground. You will have to look near the waters edge to find flint as it only appears on the shore. It will appear in both rivers and on the sea, so wherever water meets land in the meadows you are sure to find flint after some looking!

Flint can also be found under the water so look hard

Once you have found a piece of flint, interact with it by pressing the ‘E’ key by default. This will dislodge flint from the ground and it can then be picked up by the player if they have the inventory space or carrying capacity for it.
