Palworld Update ‘Fixes’ Butchering Glitch

The newest update to Palworld fixes a major glitch with the game’s butchering system that players had been using to farm rare items.


  • The latest update in Palworld fixes a major glitch with the game’s butchering system, allowing players to butcher the same Pal multiple times.
  • The exploit had previously allowed players to repeatedly butcher the same Pal, canceling the butchering animation by mounting the Pal while still acquiring the resources.
  • Palworld’s newest fix comes as the game has continually pushed new quality-of-life updates and fixes, with major new content on the way this Summer.

The newest update to Palworld addresses a major glitch players have been exploiting within the game, allowing players to repeatedly butcher the same Pal for more rewards. Throughout the sprawling open world of the monster-catching survival game, there are a variety of in-game resources for fans to acquire for their in-game base. The game’s expansive crafting system allows players to create plenty of helpful in-game resources, ranging from Palworld‘s Pal Spheres to new weapons and tools. Now, the game is addressing a major bug revolving around farming its rarest items.

Acquiring legendary schematics within Palworld gives players the chance to craft some of the most powerful items in the game. Players are normally only able to find legendary schematics through a rare drop in chests or by defeating rare Pals within the game. Players can also acquire legendary schematics by butchering their own Pals to acquire their resources, with Lucky and Alpha Pals offering greater chances to find the rare loot. Now, a common exploit for farming legendary schematics has been patched out with Palworld‘s newest update.


Palworld Player Discovers Rare Pal Stuck in Unfortunate Location

A Palworld player is lucky enough to find a rare Pal, but in an unexpected turn of events, the creature appears in a strange place.

The newest update to Palworld has reportedly addressed a major bug players have been exploiting to farm legendary schematics. The bug previously saw players able to cancel the animation for butchering a Pal by quickly mounting the Pal afterward, allowing players to repeatedly acquire resources from the Pal. Many players used the exploit as a way to effectively farm for legendary schematics, butchering and mounting the Pals for their rare drops. The post does point out that players are still able to butcher their Alpha Pals a second time for more loot.

Palworld Update Fixes Pal Butchering Glitch

The glitch’s removal saw mixed reactions from fans who had used the exploit themselves and those who had not. Many lamented the loss of the exploit as they had been farming schematics for rare items like Pal Metal Armor and Palworld‘s Rocket Launcher. Others were satisfied with the removal of the glitch, feeling that the butchering exploit allowed players to acquire powerful items too easily. Some fans even expressed their own mistakes with the glitch, accidentally butchering rare Pals like Kingpaca while trying to use the exploit.

Palworld‘s recent updates have brought plenty of helpful changes and new content with more set to come to the game later this year. Developer Pocket Pair teased a series of major updates coming to Palworld this summer, bringing new Pals, bosses, and more to the game. The studio even hinted at an entirely new island coming to Palworld, giving players a new frontier to explore within the game. Palworld‘s continued updates addressing in-game bugs and the wealth of content on the horizon look to help one of 2024’s most popular games maintain its early momentum.



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.
