From sticks and stones, armaments and weapons annihilate most foes from a distance. The firearms you obtain are an absolute game-changer, and you’ll want them as soon as you can geet them. Here, I’ll tell you about how to unlock guns in Palworld.

How to Get Guns in Palworld

You unlock guns in Palworld once you reach Technology Level 21. This is when you spend points to obtain the blueprints for the Musket, Gunpowder, and Coarse Ammo.

How to Craft the Musket and Ammo Items in Palworld

You craft the Musket and Gunpowder via the High-Quality Workbench, whereas the Coarse Ammo comes from the Weapon Workbench. They require the following resources:

  • Musket: +25 Ingot, +5 High-Quality Pal Oil, and +30 Wood.
  • Gunpowder: +2 Charcoal and +1 Sulfur.
  • Coarse Ammo: +1 Ingot and +1 Gunpowder.

I suggest saving up on Charcoal and Sulfur when you find these resources. I know it’s a hassle if I ever run out of these, which means I can’t make Coarse Ammo at all. So I stay stocked up.
