You can no longer capture Tower Boss Duos in Palworld

Mistakes happen

Every so often, a bug or glitch is accidentally included within a game that players use to their advantage. Palworld had one such exploit from day one, which allowed players to capture Tower Boss Duos and add them to their typically Pal-filled party.

However, thanks to the recent implementation of patch 0.1.5.1, this ability has been removed, and players are feeling mixed emotions about it. On one hand, the community is upset that they can no longer capture Lily or Victor, but there’s widespread amusement due to Pocketpair’s public apology on the matter.

It’s not very often that a development team apologises for doing what they do – namely fixing bugs – in such a public manner. Commenters on the post are in agreement on one thing, though: The Pocketpair team is damned if they do and damned if they don’t.

Players had expected this exploit to be patched out of the game soon after it was discovered, but with the glitch remaining in the game through subsequent updates, the community held out hope the glitch had somehow become a feature. At the time of writing, players can still use Tower Boss Duos which were captured prior to the patch, but there’s no official word as to whether this will return in the future.

There were a lot of other things added in patch 0.1.5.1 that players are more than happy with, though, such as the ability to craft without having to hold down the F button and a long list of base improvements for the Pals. Thankfully, the issue of Pals becoming stuck in an endless cycle of juggling items seems to have been rectified, and my larger Pals no longer wind up stuck on the roof with no good explanation as to how they got there.

Despite the fact that things seem to be quieting down in terms of huge news for Palworld, the game remains one of the most played on Steam and recently reached the massive milestone of 25 million players across both Steam and Xbox, showing that even if players never regain the ability to have Zoe on their team, the game isn’t going anywhere soon.
