Palworld Death Penalty Settings Explained – How To Change Them

Here’s what you can do to Change Difficulty Settings in Palworld.

Whenever you die in Palworld, whatever you carry will be dropped by the character. This is a Death Penalty you incur for taking a risk on the Palpagos Island. Depending on what difficulty you have selected, you will face a Death Penalty. It goes without saying that higher difficulty will bring serious penalties. However, if you are just not ready to lose items from your Inventory, you can change the Death Penalty Settings in Palworld. All you have to do is use the steps we have mentioned. Let’s get started.

All Death Penalty Settings in Palworld

As I said, your Death Penalty is decided by the level of Difficulty you have chosen in Palworld. Here are they:

  • Casual: You will lose nothing after dying
  • Normal: You will lose all of your items, including Gear after dying
  • Hard: You will lose all the items and your Pals after dying
  • Custom: You can choose any Death Penalty of your choice

If you die, you can retrieve the lost items by going to the place where you died. Your place of death will be marked with an “X” on the map. Even if you die while trying to get back the dropped items, they’ll remain in the same place until you come and pick them up.

  • From there, click on Custom Settings in the Custom Difficulty section.
  • Next, scroll down and navigate to the Death Penalty option.
