Reports from fans are multiplying that their ship is missing in Valheim , and one fan briefly thought she had discovered the truth behind this mystery.
According to @GliitchWiitch, the birds would be to blame : they would land on the ships and a bug would automatically place them under their control.
This means, according to this theory, that – if after landing on a ship the bird in question were to take off again – the ship would disappear instantly.
I’ve learned today that players in Valheim are noticing their boats missing or flying.
The truth – birds (like seagulls) are landing on boats and a bug accidently places the boat under bird control – which means the bird lands on a boat and flies away with it, stealing it.

The streamer’s tweet got an impressive number of likes and comments, to the point of being noticed even by the developer Iron Gate .
While amused by the theory, the study denied this hypothesis when contacted by the Polygon website.
«In relation to the bug in the tweet you shared, it’s not real, haha! It’s interesting to see how well the tweet was shot.
Regarding glitches … there was a glitch that saw one object receiving data from another, so for the example above, a bird could have received data from a ship, so a player could having seen a flying ship – but, yes, there are no birds stealing ships! ».
Paradoxically, it would therefore be more likely to see a flying ship than a ship that disappeared due to a bird.
