How to Hide the HUD in Valheim
HUD is an acronym for Heads-Up Display. It encompasses everything that isn’t a graphic. The health bar, the inventory images, and text, and all other indicators that the player has access to are not part of the game itself.
The above image shows a few elements of the HUD in Valheim that relate to health. On the bottom, left are food bars.
Also included are the quick bar slots in the top left which displays the top row of the inventory, the top-right minimap, and the bottom right quick control guide.
The map of Valheim will be more difficult to navigate if these elements are hidden. And, this may add an element of challenge to the game for some players.
Also, because your character’s model does not show your health status, there is no way to tell how much stamina or health you have.
