Valheim, the survival RPG game that’s all the rage right now, has no shortage of creatures to defeat and conquer. Sea Serpents are oceanic monsters that provide an excellent looting opportunity but, at the same time, a more complex planning phase.

Sea Serpents are found in the Ocean Biome in Valheim. The snake-like creatures spawn during the night and are very quick.

When you spot a sea serpent, it won’t be very smart to take it head-on until you have the right tools for the job.

2. How to Defeat Sea Serpents in Valheim?

The best way to defeat the Sea Serpent in Valheim is to hunt it in teams. One player each to drag the monster with a harpoon, attack the Serpent, and steer the ship towards some shallow water or land.

With your supplies ready, it’s time to find and hunt the Sea Serpents. Often they appear during storms. Once you spot them, have one player harpoon it while one steers the boat towards some land or shallow water. The third player can start inflicting some damage.

Teamwork makes Serpent Killing a Lot Easier

Either kill the monster on land where it’s more vulnerable or in shallow water. Similarly, you can just solo harpoon the serpent to land and then kill it. Pro Tip: Don’t defeat the Serpent in deep waters, as the scale loot will just sink, and you won’t get anything other than meat.

3. What Loot is Dropped by Sea Serpents in Valheim?

Sea Serpents in Valheim will drop Serpent Meat, Serpent Scales and Serpent Trophies as loot in Valheim.
