In the expansive world of Palworld, efficient and agile movement is key to exploration and survival. One particularly useful but lesser-known mechanic is sliding, a maneuver that not only looks cool but provides practical advantages in both traversal and combat. This comprehensive guide will cover everything you need to know about sliding in Palworld.
Sliding serves as a rapid movement technique, especially useful for descending slopes and evading in battles. Unlike other movement mechanics, sliding in Palworld is not taught in the game’s tutorial, making it a valuable skill for players to learn independently.
Initiate a sprint by pressing the left stick (LS). While sprinting, hold the B/crouch button to slide. Tapping B/crouch will result in a dodge roll.
Start by holding down Shift to sprint. Then, hold the C key mid-sprint to initiate a slide.
Sliding from a stationary position can be awkward. Building momentum, especially downhill, is key for a smooth, extended slide. Sliding can be an effective evasive maneuver during combat, making your character a harder target to hit with projectiles or melee attacks.
Use sliding for a temporary speed boost down hills, beneficial if you don’t have a glider yet. This doesn’t consume stamina and allows for faster terrain navigation. Start a power slide just before opening the glider for a significant speed boost, enabling faster and further gliding.
Master directional sliding across various terrains, from grassy plains to steep mountain slopes. The steeper the terrain, the more momentum and longer slide you will achieve. Be cautious of fall damage, especially when transitioning from sliding to gliding.
- Combat Sliding: Sliding can be used as a tactical maneuver in battle, making you harder to hit.
- Hassle-Free Descent: A quick and easy way to descend slopes without the need for mounting a Pal.
- Momentum Understanding: Grasp the concept of momentum to maximize the effectiveness of your slides.
