Palworld: How To Mount Your Pal + Crafting Saddles

Learn how to mount your Pal to travel and explore more swiftly across the world of Palworld

In the vast survivor world of Palworld developed by Pocket Pair, Inc., you must collect resources to develop a secure base and craft weapons to battle and capture pals. Some of these captured pals can be mounted which is helpful as having a mount can be very useful in both traveling and battling scenarios to either capture or gather resources from enemy pals.

Key Takeaways
  • There are 5 mountable pals in Palworld that can be captured and mounted early in the game.
  • Each mount’s saddle must be crafted separately.
  • You can easily mount your pal after crafting the saddle by approaching it and pressing the interact button.

How To Mount Your Pal

To mount your pal you must first fight and capture a pal that can be mounted. After capturing the pal you must gather the required resources and craft its saddle. Every pal has its own saddle that must be crafted in order to mount it. However, after crafting the saddle you can summon your pal and mount it by pressing and holding the interact button (F) displayed at the bottom of the screen when you are near your pal.

Some of the Early Mountable Pals are below:

Craft Early Pal Saddles

In order to ride your pal, it is essential to craft a separate saddle for each one accordingly. Without the specific saddle, you won’t be able to mount your pal. Therefore, make sure to craft the specific saddle for your pal before attempting to ride it. But you must first acquire the saddle technology.

You can get the specific saddle technology by upgrading your technology level and unlocking it using technology points. Some early saddle technologies are below:

Rushoar

My Thoughts

Getting a mount in Palworld was a little challenging for me because of its great survival elements but once I got my first Direhowl mount, getting other early game mounts became not so difficult because direhound mount made traveling and farming resources faster and easier.

However, getting the Nitewing mount made things even easier and I could also fly. Therefore I recommend getting Nitewing Mount if you’re a beginner and have created just a few tools and equipment to survive. This is all that you’ll ever need to mount and ride any other pals.
