Hats have two main purposes in Palworld: to strengthen your defensive stats and look stylish, cute, or any other adjective you’re aiming for. Here’s how to find every hat and helm in the game.

Once you buy the schematics, you can craft each hat on your workbench using the resources listed. After completing the crafting process, you’ll equip your hat and receive its respective buffs.

You can also find an assortment of schematics and other resources in treasure chests. While I’ve yet to find any hats in chests, I’ll continue to update this list as I discover more.

How to Unlock Every Helm in Palworld

Alongside hats, you can also craft helmets for greater defensive buffs. Below is a list of every helm you can unlock in Palworld:

Each helmet gets progressively more challenging to create as its materials get more advanced. However, with this comes enhanced defensive stats to help you take less damage against Pals, humanoid enemies, and bosses.
