Here’s how to capture a Smuggler in Palworld, and how to upgrade the stock of Pals he has to offer while he’s in your base.
In Palworld, the Smuggler is an NPC who can be identified by his strange face and the executioner’s hood he wears.
They offer players the opportunity to sell Pals, and even captured humans, illegally. They also sell their own stock of Pals, which will be of higher rarity than those sold by Pals Merchants.
Here is where to find the Smugglers, how to capture them and how to renew their stock of Pals in order to obtain the desired Pals with dream skills.

How to capture a Smuggler
Smugglers are level 40 and wield a powerful submachine gun. So it is important that you are prepared when trying to capture them. This means being at a high level and having some of the best Pals to fight those iron health enemies.
During the fight, the smuggler will try to push you away with his rifle. So be sure to dodge it and take cover to block its bullets. From time to time try to shoot to hurt him in turn.
Once the smuggler’s health is low enough, use a Hyper Sphere (available at level 27) to try to capture them.

How to renew their stock of Pals
After capturing a Smuggler, you can bring him to your base to work. Each time you spawn them in your base, they will then have a different selection of Pals to purchase.
So you can use this respawn method to continually refresh their Pal stock.
However, the Smugglers do not sell their Pal stock cheaply. Indeed, you will need a lot of Gold Coins.
