Palworld Mounts – How To Ride

The Pal Tamer stands at a workbench crafting a Nitewing Saddle to unlock Palworld mounts.


How do you ride Palworld mounts? Palpagos Island is fairly expansive, and setting off into the wilds on foot can be a daunting prospect. Sure, fast travel points certainly help to speed exploration along, but they’re not much use when you come up against vast mountains or gangs of high-level poachers and Pals. That’s where Palworld mounts come in.

A Palworld mount is your best bet for navigating Palpagos Island, allowing you to dash past free-roaming Palworld bosses and soar over mountains in Palworld with ease. They can also help you reach rare Palworld resources such as Lifmunk Effigies, so you can level up fast in the open-world game. If all that sounds like a dream, here’s how to unlock a Palworld mount.

How to ride mounts in Palworld

To unlock Palworld mounts, you must unlock the ridable Pal’s saddle from the Technology tree and craft it at a Pal Gear Workbench. Acquire the saddle from the workbench to unlock the corresponding Pal’s ‘Ride’ Pal Power.

Palworld Pals come in all shapes and sizes, so it should be no surprise that only a select few can be ridden. You must also have caught the relevant Pal before its saddle becomes available to unlock from the Palworld Technology tree. Like all craftable items in the survival game, different saddles require different Palworld resources before you can begin to create them.

The Pal Tamer takes to the skies on the back of a Nitewing after crafting its saddle to turn it into a Palworld mount.
