We’re not going to get into the ethical debate about this. We’re just going to do it. If I can catch cute creatures and work them to death, I can catch some people for a laugh. Here’s how to catch humans in Palworld.

How to Catch Humans in Pal Spheres in Palworld

You can catch humans in Palworld, though you can’t put them to work like you can Pals. Still, why wouldn’t you? These Syndicate Thugs keep raiding you, so why not shove them into Pal Spheres to teach them a lesson? Maybe sell them on the black market. To catch humans in Palworld, get Pal Spheres, some humans, and a whole lot of luck.

The chances of catching a human with a Pal Sphere in Palworld are very low. You’ll toss Pal Spheres at a human a few times before the game will maybe let you capture them. It’s not exactly ethical to go around capturing people to keep in the balls!

How to Increase Your Chances of Catching Humans

Use Pal Spheres of higher grade to capture humans in Palworld more easily. Mega Spheres and higher ones have a higher chance of catching a human. You learn to craft Mega Spheres at Level 14. Though, Mega Spheres and higher variants don’t guarantee catching a person. You must try several times before you succeed, but it’ll be worth it.

Funny enough, you can butcher humans like you can Pals. You can also sell them to a Merchant like Pals. You just can’t have them work for you in the same way. But at least you now know how to catch humans in Palworld for some laughs and extra cash.
