Palworld is a multiplayer, open-world survival game released on January 19, 2024. A core mechanic of this game is catching Pals, creatures that inhabit the game's setting, in a very similar manner to the Pokémon series, though it more heavily resembles open world survival games such as ARK: Survival Evolved and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in terms of overall gameplay.

The following weapons appear in the video game Palworld:


In Palworld, players are able to craft weapons. These weapons can be used by humans and Pals alike. Different tiers of weapons exist; Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary. This all have different damage values and magazine capacities, although they all share the same model as the Common version of said weapon (meaning that the 7-round M1911 magazine can hold up to 16). Shiney and boss versions of Pals are larger than the standard versions, and thus their weapons are also scaled up. Captured humans cannot fire their their weapons in combat even if there were able to before being captured.


Colt M1911A1

A rusty Colt M1911A1 with an extended threaded barrel appears as "Makeshift Handgun". It is of similar size to the LAR Grizzly Pistol, and has a hodgepodge of replacement parts attached to it. The M1911A1 has a capacity of six rounds and somehow is able to use the same "Coarse Ammo" that the musket uses.

A new player character with the M1911AA1 on an unfamiliar beach. The slide has ventilation holes milled into it, trigger guard removed (and makeshift trigger) and split grip with cable tied around the hole, which also appears to be compressing the grip safety. The hammer and some of the interior appear to be colored the same bright red as the rear sight, suggesting they are cobbled together and not original parts.
Aiming. Note the wingnut with two dots acting as a rear sight.
Another player aiming with the M1911A1, showing the left side of it.
A player firing, showing the tilting barrel and spent casing.
Start of the reload: the character pushes the magazine release (or the general area, as their hand doesn't come close enough to actually touch it). Note the slide always locks back when reloading, regardless of if there was still remaining ammunition or not.
About to load a "new" magazine, which is always the empty model. There is strangely always a round floating in the open ejection port, which lines up with the top of the magazine when it is inserted.
Loading from the other side, giving a view of some of the internals.
The player character about to toggle the slide release; the slide release doesn't actually engage with the slide during the reload and the player actually appears to be flicking the safety lock.

Safari Arms M1911

Another craftable pistol, which most closely resembles the Safari Arms M1911, is available to the pistol after leveling up further. Simply called "Handgun", it shares the same animations as the "Makeshift Handgun". It has a capacity of eight rounds and uses generically named "Handgun Ammo", which appears to be modeled after .45 ACP. It commonly appears in the hands of Rayne Syndicate Thugs, PIDF Guards, and the Wandering Traders.

A player with the "Handgun". Unlike the "Makeshift Handgun", it appears to lack almost all external hardware necessary for it to function. There is no slide stop, no safety lock, no grip safety and the magazine release appears to be a tiny nub inset from the grip.
Other side. For some reason there is a notch for the slide stop on this side as well.
Dropping the magazine during the reload. In the exact opposite of the "Makeshift Handgun", the magazine is always loaded when reloading, regardless of how many rounds were expended. Note the full length guide rod (which appears to be longer than the tilted barrel here).
About to load a new magazine. The inside of the pistol is unfortunately just a flat texture, which is the case for both the magazine well...
...and the ejection port.


Double-barreled Shotgun

Pump-action Shotgun

The Benelli M3 appears in the game as the "Pump-action shotgun". As its name implies, it can only fire in pump-action and not semi-auto. It is craftable at tier 42 on the tech tree for 30x Refined Ingot, 20x Polymer, 40x Carbon Fiber. It is also seen in the hands of various NPCs and enemies, including Rayne Syndicate Hunters and Burley Mercs.

Lifmunk's Submachine Gun

The Lifmunk can wield a small submachine gun as its special ability.

A scaled down AKMN with an AK-47 dust cover makes an appearance as a weapon exclusive to Tanzees when using their Tanzee’s Assault Rifle special ability. This appears to have been partially inspired by this promotional clip for the movie: Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Another Tanzee pulling out his AKM at out of thin air the start of his ability.
Ditto after flipping the rifle, giving a look at the left side of the rifle. Note the dovetail appears to be a more modern one such as the ones seen mounted on the late 90's versions of the AK-74M.
Armed and ready.
Letting loose. Note no casings are ejected nor are any bullets ever seen. The Tanzee fires about three or four bursts before its ability is exhausted.

Assault Rifle

Palworld's "Assault Rifle" is an indistinct original design, albeit with some resemblance to the SIG-Sauer SIG556 HOLO. The stock's buttpad also comes off of an FN SCAR.

A player character holds the Assault Rifle.

Charleville Musket

A Charleville Musket, simply referred to as "musket" can be used by the player at Tech Tier 21, crafted using 25 ingots, 30 wood and 5 high quality pal oil.

Start of the reload; tossing the cartridge into the air then catching it and pouring powder into pan. Note the player character doesn't tear it at all, and in addition, the strange color and shape of the cartridge, which makes it look like a metal tube instead of paper cylinder.
Smacking the action to full-cock. Cocking the hammer before loading the barrel is not a technique recommended in reality.
Dropping a cartridge into the muzzle.
Finally, pulling out the ram-rod, flipping it upside down, and pushing the cartridge down.

Sharps Rifle/Spencer 1860

The in-game "Single-Shot Rifle" is modeled after the both the Sharps Rifle and the Spencer 1860. According to its marking, the rifle is called a "Sheynin Repeating Rifle", as well as "Model 1865".

Machine Guns

Browning M2

The Browning M2 appears as "Mounted Machine Gun" and can be built as a defense for the player's base at tech level 40 for 30x Ingot, 10x Nail, 15x Cement. It was featured being used by Lamballs in official trailers and images.

Handheld Minigun

A gigantic minigun can be unlocked for the pal Grizzbolt, simply referred to as Grizzbolt's Minigun. It is also seen in the hands of the equally massive Rayne Syndicate Crushers and slightly smaller Black Marketeers.

Airsoft handheld M134 Minigun with 'Chainsaw grip' to handle the recoil force. This variant was seen in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. This is an airsoft version which retains the half-circle attachment point for the M60 foregrip from Predator; the real T2 minigun did not have this - (fake) 7.62x51mm NATO

Captured through a glitch, Zoe Rayne and her Grizzbolt pose with the minigun in-game. The tower bosses use the same animations and programming their normal Pal counterparts and thus are compatable with the abilities the player can unlock for said Pals.

Closeup of the markings. The side inscription reads: "Beware of Machine Gun Dog" (which is possibly a strange reference to a parody "beware of dog" sign where the dog has a minigun strapped to its back). The magazine reads: "500 CARTRIDGES 50 cal Moundet Gun".


China Lake

A heavily modified China Lake can be seen wielded by the Mossanda. It features a pistol grip, detachable drum magazine, and vertical foregrip while having no stock present.

M67 Hand Grenade

The M67 Hand Grenade is craftable in the game. It comes in four variants; "Frag Grenade", "Ice Grenade", "Shock Grenade" and "Incendiary Grenade". It is also seen in the hands of Rayne Syndicate Grenadiers.
