A Newly Discovered Palworld Bug Allows Players To Create Underwater Bases

The bug can be easily replicated.

Story Highlights

  • A new Palworld bug was found by a Redditor that allows players to create underwater bases.
  • The bug lets a user dive underwater while mounting a Pal while also keeping the ability to build.
  • The devs may fix it in the future since the game is only in early access and prone to bugs.

Palworld has only recently come out, and players are already discovering wild bugs and strategies to survive in the harsh yet cute world filled with Pals. The Redditor u/ADGSF25 has figured out a way to build underwater bases in the game. As per the shared gameplay video showing the bug, using a Pal as a mount while diving into the water can help a user easily land on the ground without drowning in any way.

The bug also lets users keep the ability to build underwater. While the Redditor did not construct a whole base down there, they still showed the possibility by building a primitive workbench. The glitch seems redundant on the surface, but Palworld players can turn it into a massive advantage. A bug built underwater may not easily catch on fire and burn down after raid attacks from Pals due to water, but it is yet to be confirmed so far.

Additionally, the devs also confirmed that a PvP update is planned for the future. So, players are already discussing how building underwater may save them from rampant attacks by others. That is if the studio decides to keep the bug in the future. It is likely to be fixed soon since the entry is in early access and filled with glitches like these.
