How to get Technology points

You can get Palworld Technology points by leveling up and unlocking fast travel points, while Ancient Technology points are gained by defeating bosses.

You can also occasionally find High Grade Technical Manuals in loot chests at the end of Palworld dungeons, which can be consumed for a Technology point.

With these methods in mind, the best way to get Palworld Technology points quickly is by exploring the Palworld map for new points of interest and challenges. Discovering new Palworld Pals is also hugely beneficial; not only do you gain experience points for capturing them, but you can also assign them Palworld jobs that they excel at to maintain your base while you’re off in the wilderness.

How to use Technology points

You can spend your Palworld Technology points by pressing ‘Esc’ to open the main menu and selecting the Technology tab. From there, you’re free to select whichever Technology you wish to unlock, provided you’ve reached that tier’s level requirements and have the Technology points required.

You begin Palworld with the first tier in the Technology tree automatically unlocked, leaving you free to craft the Primitive Workbench and a set of basic tools as soon as you’ve gathered the required materials. While this is enough to get started, you need to invest your Technology points wisely if you want to progress quickly in the open-world game.
