Where to find the Black Marketeer in Palworld

Guns aren’t the only darker subject matter Palworld takes on that may surprise those who see it as just a Pokemon clone. Beyond collecting Pals and resources like Ancient Civilization parts to craft buildings, you will also be able to procure some rather dubious items, such as people. While you can put them to work for you, there is an entire network of black market sales that you can participate in that can be very lucrative if you don’t mind doing some morally grey business deals. If you’re ready to participate in the dark underbelly that is Palworld, here is where you can find all the Black Marketeers to buy and sell rare items.

All Black Marketeer locations

There are five different Black Marketeers to find hidden in the wilds of Palworld. They are all well-hidden, and some you won’t be able to reach until later in the game, but thankfully all seem to buy and sell the same stock at the same prices. Note that they do have a limited stock of items for sale, but will refresh if you leave and come back after some time.

From the Desolate Church fast travel point, head west to find the Abandoned Mineshaft location. Venture into the mine and you will run into the first Black Marketeer dead ahead.

This next merchant is way up north at the top of the freezing mountains. From the PIDF Tower Entrance, go east to coordinates 496, 340 to find a Secret Mineshaft he is taking shelter inside.

Duneshelter

From the town of Duneshelter, make your way just outside to coordinates 345, 364 where he is hanging out along the outer wall.

Heading south from this point, follow the coast along Mount Obsidian to the west to its end. This is where he is hiding.

Ruined Fortress City

Go down into the city towards the river, but hang a left before the broken bridge. He doesn’t always appear here, so you may not want to rely on this dude.

The best Palworld mods
Sheep carry guns in Palworld.

If there's a popular game on PC, then it's only a matter of time before there are mods for it. In the case of Palworld, it took less than a week for dozens of mods to start pouring in for this massively popular survival game. There is already a ton of content in the game now, with all the various items to craft and different Pal types to catch, but mods can help some of the lagging areas of the game before the developers have time to provide any official updates or patches.

If you want to tweak the game to your liking, or maybe just have some extra fun, here are some of the best mods available for Palworld so far. More mods are always being created, so we will keep this list updated with the best, most fun, and most useful mods as they are released.

How to breed Pals in Palworld
A pal base with a farm and bath.

Your Pals may look a little too close to Pokemon in some instances in Palworld, but they do have some important mechanical differences. Yes, they all have elemental types that give them advantages over other Pals, just like a pocket monster, but your Pals can't and won't evolve just by battling and earning XP. Instead, the only way to get new and improved Pals outside of catching higher-level ones in the wild is through breeding. However, Pals aren't all that keen on producing offspring without you setting up the right conditions first. If you don't know what will get your Pals in the mood, it may be impossible to guess. Let's talk birds and bees with a full breakdown of how breeding works in Palworld.
How to breed Pals

Pals aren't just going to breed without privacy, requiring you to build a special Breeding Farm. This will unlock once you hit level 19 and shows up in the Technology section of your menu. It costs 100 Wood, 50 Fiber, and 20 Stones to construct. Build it up and place it in your base. But wait, Pals are a bit more romantic than that. Sure, the farm is great, but you need something more to sweeten the deal -- a cake. Cakes require 5 Flour, 8 Red berries, 7 Milk, 8 Eggs, and 2 Honey to create, and you will need plenty of cakes, so make sure to gather as much as you can.

Palworld type chart: How elemental types work in Palworld
A Tocotoco in Palworld.

Many people refer to Palworld as Pokémon with guns, but that's selling the game short. Sure, you can and will use a host of firearms to fight Pals, but the Pals themselves also have types just like their pocket monster counterparts. And just like in the game that inspired it, Pal types play a huge role in which ones are more effective against the others. Some elemental weakness will be obvious, but the system does work slightly differently than that you might be used to. Here is how elemental types work in Palworld and how all the types interact.
How types work in Palworld

Right off the bat, Palworld has nine different types. Unlike Pokémon, though, each type (with the exception of fire and neutral) is only weak and strong against one other type. That means each Pal will only be weak to one specific element, but since Pals can learn moves from other elements, they can be effective against multiple types. Here are all the types, what they're strong against, and what they are weak against.
