As you fight your way against different Pals early on in Palworld, you will find it significantly easier to defeat them and catch them. However, that won’t be the case anymore as you level up. And if you want to consider what your defense should be apart from your Pals, you should look no further than Shields. Shields in Palworld work differently than the regular ones we see in hand. However, they are quite useful going forward into the game.

While there are different types of Shields, the first one unlocks at level 4 and players will have to craft it on the workbench. Shields are more of a passive ability in the game instead of holding physical ones but they provide you with a huge margin of damage absorption. Our guide will help you get completely familiar with Shields and how they work in the game.
How to Craft Shields in Palworld
To craft Shields in Palworld, you will first have to reach Level 4 to get the crafting ingredients for the Common Shield. You will need 10 Paldium Fragment, 20 Wood, 20 Stone, and 10 Fiber to craft the Shield on your Workbench. Upon completion, players will be able to equip the Shield by pressing F. Another alternative for players is to head to the Inventory and drag it to the dedicated Shield slot.
How to Use Shields in Palworld
Palworld Shields work differently and players won’t have to keep one hand free to equip it every time. Instead, you will see a blue bar add up over your health which is the Shield. They are essentially a way to get extra health instead of a physical object. As long as your Shield bar is full, you’ll be able to take more damage than usual.
How to Repair Palworld Shields
Shields in Palworld will regenerate over time once depleted. Fortunately, players won’t have to worry about repairing them once the blue bar depletes unlike other weapons & tools. If you find your blue bar depleted, simply dodge as long as you can during combat while you wait for the Shield bar to be full again.
