Abominations are a pain to kill in Valheim because they deal heavy damage by slamming down into the ground near the player. Luckily killing Abominations is not as hard as it may seem, but only if you use their unique weakness to your advantage. That said, here is everything you need to know about how to kill Abominations using the best methods in Valheim.
Best way to beat Abominations in Valheim
The best way to kill Abominations in Valheim is by using fire damage, as abominations are weak towards fire damage. We recommend making Fire arrows to kill Abominations in Valheim using fire damage. Fire arrows are a unique variant of arrows you can make inside a workbench, and to make fire arrows, you need the following resources listed below.
- 8 Wood

Once you make a sizeable amount of fire arrows, we recommend making a decent bow to use them with. We suggest making and using a Draugr Fang bow, as it has the highest bow pierce damage in Valheim. To make a Draugr Fang bow, you will need the following resources listed below.
- 10 Ancient bark
- 20 Silver

After you get both the Draugr Fang bow and a sizeable stack of fire arrows, you are all set to take on Abominations in Valheim, but before you head out, we recommend looking at the helpful tips for beating Abominations below.
Helpful tips for beating Abominations in Valheim
- Have a tank: If you are playing in a group, a helpful way to beat Abominations is to have one player, with decent armor and a shield, tank all of the damage and keep the monster's attention. While the monster is focused on the tank, have one or more players unleash volley after volley of fire arrows.
- Use cover: If you have a bow and arrows, you will need to find cover either in a ruined building or rock. When in cover, fire arrows at the monster from safety.
