Capturing or hunting down pals is the core mechanic in Palworld. This is achieved once you have powerful weapons, in particular industrial guns. Even if you get those, you will run out of bullets sooner than you know, and to craft more bullets, you need to learn how to get gunpowder in Palworld. This is one of the hard to craft resources, as you need charcoal, and sulfur (another challenging resource to get in high volume).

How To Get GunpowderThe easiest way to get gunpowder is to defeat Tocotoco Pal in Palworld but you can also craft it once you have reached level 21 of Technology Tree.
Finding Tocotoco PalTocotoco creatures might seem harmless at first glance, but they have a knack for exploding. Once they spot you, they’ll either run away or chase you down and explode. When they go into explosion mode, they speed up and catch up to you wherever you go. One way to avoid the explosion is by dodging right when it starts to blow up.
You can catch a Tocotoco when they attack your base. This could take so long and killing a couple will not give you enough gunpowder to make some of the best weapons in Palworld. Therefore, you can find Tocotoco in two places:
- Desert: In the desert at the center of the map, east of the Sealed Realm of the Winged Tyrant fast travel point.
- Desert Island: On the big desert island in the northeast of Palworld’s map.
This is a scary Pal that produces exploding eggs. It often shoots these eggs from its back as a weapon, but after using this tactic, the Pal itself blows up. Most Tocotoco pals are level 17 or higher, so you can catch one with a regular Pal Sphere, but it’s safer to use a Mega Pal Sphere.
In order to craft the Gunpowder crafting material in Palworld, you need to first reach level 21 Technology.
You need the following base items to craft one Gunpowder:
- Charcoal x2
- Sulfur x1
Why Do You Need GunpowderYou need gunpowder to craft ammo for high caliber weapons and advanced weapons in Palworld. Following is a list of weapons whose ammo can be crafted by having Gunpowder in the game.
- Assault Rifle Ammo
- Coarse Ammo
- Frag Grenade
- Handgun Ammo
- Rifle Ammo
- Rocket Ammo
- Shotgun Shells
