How to get Ancient Technology Points in Palworld

To get Ancient Technology Points in Palworld you need to defeat any of the bosses you come across in the game.

However, you will only be rewarded points the first time you beat them. It’s likely that the first big boss you’ll fight in the early stages of Palworld is the Rayne Tower Syndicate Boss near your initial spawn area.

When you defeat a Syndicate Boss, you will be rewarded with five Ancient Technology Points. They’re tricky to beat, but they are the fastest way to earn a lot of points in one go.
