Palworld Player Shares Tip to Transfer Resources Without Being Encumbered


  • A Palworld player has found a way to transfer heavy resources without being encumbered.
  • The method involves opening the Storage Chest, holding the item, pressing Tab to exit the menu, and walking over to the other Storage Chest to deposit the resource.
  • The technique is well-received on Reddit and could be an alternative to using Palworld’s Grappling Gun to move around while encumbered.

A Palworld player has found a way to transfer heavy resources in the game without being encumbered. In order to have an easier time in Palworld, players must traverse the expansive Palapagos Island in search of various helpful resources like ore and coal. Often, when players find a good supply of resources, they build a base around it to automate the collection process.

While Pals can be used to transport these resources to Storage Chests, players must still collect them to move to furnaces or even to their main base. However, these resources can heavily encumber players who will not be able to move if they go over the weight limit. Players can circumvent this by raising their Weight stat to increase the carrying capacity in Palworld. However, since there are only a limited number of points and more Stats to invest in, players will more often than not find themselves weighted down. As such, players have been looking for ways to move around while being encumbered.


Palworld Player Shows Off Impressive Base With Helpful Resources

One Palworld player is showing off their impressively fortified and resource-rich base they meticulously built at the edge of a cliff.

One player going by the handle makeUmove on Twitter has found an ingenious method to move Palworld resources without being affected by the Weight stat. The player’s video made its way to the Palworld subreddit, showcasing them taking a stack of 9,999 stones from one Storage Chest and walking some distance to deposit them in another chest. It should be noted that this large number of resources weighs far beyond what regular players should be able to move. According to BeyondSmash, the Reddit user that crossposted the video, Palworld players can utilize this method by opening their storage, holding the item, pressing Tab to get out of the menu, and then walking over to the other chest to deposit the resource.

Method to Transport Heavy Stack of Resources Without Being Encumbered in Palworld

  • Open the Storage Chest
  • Hold the item
  • Press Tab to exit the menu
  • Walk over to the other Storage Chest and deposit the resource

The video also showed the player demonstrating that the technique is not limited to one resource as they moved a similarly weighted stack of wood. However, considering BeyondSmash’s instructions, it seems that this method will only work for players using a keyboard and mouse. The video was well-received on Reddit, with some commenters stating that this new method was much better than using Palworld’s Grappling Gun to move around when encumbered. Some other users in the thread suggested that helpful quality-of-life features in future updates could either be Pocketpair removing the weight limit in bases or even connecting the storage stash in both bases.

Palworld is still in early access, so features that can alleviate weight problems in bases may be some time off. However, with the recently released Palworld roadmap that promises to make “Improvements to the Building System,” it seems like Pocketpair will be looking into how to make the survival aspect of the game a much better experience.



Pocket Pair’s Palworld is a creature-collection game set in an open-world. Entering early access on January 19, 2024, the project blends survival, building, farming, monster breeding, and shooter elements.
