How to kill Deathsquitos in Valheim

Death from above.

Death from above waits for those who wander into the plains biomes, in the form of Desthsquitos; here is how to fight them, warrior. 

Best ways to kill Deathsquitos in Valheim

To kill deathsquitos, you will need to use a long-range weapon such as a dragur fang bow, Huntsmen bow, and a fine wood bow. You will also want to avoid melee combat as much as possible, as even in good armor, deathsquitos can get your health down and kill you. 

That said, we recommend using hit and run tactics against these killer mosquitos, along with fire, or obsidian arrows. It also couldn't hurt to make fully upgraded iron armor, as it's one of the best armors in the game and will keep you alive longer than other mid-tier armors. But to make iron armor, you will need first to get iron which requires you to get a swamp key from the second boss in the game, the Elder.

If you think this is bad, I spawned 1k of these for the feature image.

Once you got the swamp key, you will be able to get iron ore by locating it underground in sunken crypts in the swamp biome. After that, you can make full iron armor with the following resources below.
