Palworld v0.2.0.6 Brings First Raid Boss, New Buildings and More

The gigantic Palworld v0.2.0.6 patch introduces Bellanoir the first raid boss, as well as a host of new additions.

Palworld's largest version update has arrived on Steam, and it includes the survival-crafter's first raid boss, new updates to Pal bases, balance adjustments, powerful new items and much more.

New challenges await players going back into the indie mega-hit, as the long-awaited update gives Palworld fans their biggest challenge yet: Bellanoir, an extremely tough raid boss Pal that was first announced back in March. Given that the current game's gone a long time without any major patches, Palworld v0.2.0.6 is a breath of fresh air for die-hard Palworld fans.

While the game's player count has dropped off in recent months, the changes in v0.2.0.6 may be just what the game needs to reignite player interest. Here's everything you need to know about Palworld v0.2.0.6

Palworld v0.2.0.6

Palworld v0.2.0.6 Details

Raid Boss Bellanoir

Bellanoir is Palworld's very first raid boss Pal. These Pals unleash devastating AOE abilities to overcome any foe, but luckily you'll have your entire Pal base by your side. And the Palworld v0.2.0.6 notes revealed just how these special bosses are summoned.

To summon Raid Bosses in Palworld, you'll need to use the appropriate slab at the Summoning Alter. Raid bosses unfortunately cannot be captured due to how powerful they are, but they can drop special Pal Eggs which you can use with the Incubator.

Bellanoir also has an “Extreme” difficulty for those looking to test their strongest Pal roster. Keep in mind that this will be highly dangerous. Thankfully, Palworld v0.2.0.6 also made recovering your items way easier.

New Balance Updates

Palworld v0.2.0.6 came with a slew of important balance changes. These fix parts of the game while providing a lot of quality-of-life (QoL). Here are all of the balance updates so far:

Palworld v0.2.0.6 adds new and powerful items scattered across Palapagos Island. Some of these are craftable equipment while others can be found in dungeons and chests. Here are all of the new items in the Palworld v0.2.0.6 update, and what they do:

New Base Buildings
