Every shield in Palworld, plus its stats and recipe

It's this or Lamball...

Along with Armor, one of the most vital pieces of gear in Palworld is shields and there’s a few of them that can massively increase how long you last in a battle. Of course, you could use Lamball’s Fluffy Shield Partner Skill, but that will only get you so far.

Shields don’t add anything to your health stats, but they do provide an invisible layer of protection that must be depleted before you take any actual damage. There are four Shields currently within the game which are unlocked via the Technology Ladder at different levels. At the higher end, some of these Shields can take a lot of resources to make, but they’re worth it. 

All Palworld Shields

Common Shield

Unlock level: 4

This first shield unlocks at level four and while it doesn’t provide much protection, it’s plenty for those first adventures into the wilderness of Palpagos.

The Common Shield provides a Shield stat of 100 and has 1,000 Durability. Unlike the future Shields, this one can be crafted at a Makeshift Workbench and I can’t help but imagine how this would realistically look when crafted, because it’s just a collection of basic materials tied together with rope.

Here’s the recipe for a Common Shield:

  • 10 Paldium Fragments
  • 20 Wood
  • 20 Stone
  • 10 Fiber

Mega Shield

Unlock level: 16

Once you’ve unlocked and built the High Quality Workbench, you can build the first upgraded Shield. 

The Mega Shield offers a Shield stat of 260, while it’s durability increases to 1,500, so it’s worth crafting as soon as you can. Unlike the previous Shield, this one seems much less cumbersome to carry around, realistically speaking.

Here’s the recipe for the Mega Shield:

Giga Shield

Unlock level: 28

The third shield upgrade boosts your Shield stat to 540 and has a much more impressive durability of 2,250. 

This shield is much better suited for long adventures where you’re likely to come into contact with a lot of high-level, hard-hitting Pals. 

To make the Giga Shield you’ll need a High Quality Workbench and the following ingredients:

  • 15 Ancient Civilization Parts
  • 50 Paldium Fragments

Hyper Shield

Unlock level: 43

The last Shield upgrade currently available in the game, the Hypershield almost doubles the Shield stat of the Giga Shield, taking it all the way up to 1,045 while boasting a durability of 3,500. 

If you’re looking to go and pick a fight with the Legendary Pals, such as Frostallion or Jetragon, then this is the shield that you need. 

Here’s the recipe:

  • 30 Ancient Civilization Parts
  • 100 Paldium Fragments
