To become a successful rancher, Beatrix LeBeau must tame many different Slime species on the Far, Far Range, and to do that, she has to hunt them down first! Here’s where to find all Slimes in Slime Rancher 2.
Where to Find All Slimes in Slime Rancher 2
As of patch 0.3.0, Slime Rancher 2 features 21 different Slime types for you to find and capture. Many Slimes can appear anywhere in multiple regions, whereas other types only spawn in specific areas. We’ll go over the details in this guide, and feel free to jump around if you’re looking for a specific Slime.
Where to Find Pink Slimes
The friendly Pink Slime is the face of the entire Slime Rancher series, and as such, they’re pretty common and easy to find. You can find them immediately outside of the ranch, and pretty much anywhere in Rainbow Fields, the beginning area of the game.
Where to Find Tabby Slimes
Tabby Slimes can be found in small groups in the western section of Rainbow Fields. There’s only a couple of them here though, so if you’re looking for more, you can head over to Starlight Strand and Ember Valley to find more. These guys are pretty elusive in general though, so just keep looking.
Where to Find Phosphor Slimes
Phosphor Slimes are glowing Slimes that only come out at night. They can be found in just about any area in the game, as long as it’s nighttime. They’re very sensitive to the light and will disappear in broad daylight. Sleep at your ranch until it’s night, then go exploring—you’re bound to run into some Phosphor Slimes.
Where to Find Honey Slimes
Honey Slimes are gooey Slimes with a honeycomb on their heads found exclusively in Starlight Strand. They are commonly found in the pink side of Starlight Strand, which is the eastern section of the region.
Where to Find Puddle Slimes
Puddle Slimes are rare Slimes that can only be found in specific small bodies of water in Starlight Strand. Supposedly they can be found in other places, but we could only find them in Starlight Strand.
Here are the spots where we found them. The first spot is at the large waterfall near the center of Starlight Strand, highlighted by the green circle. You’ll need to jetpack all the way up to the small spring at the top of the mountain to find the Puddle Slimes.
The other location is further southeast in the pink section. On the pathway to the area with the Flutter Slimes, there’s a cliffside path that goes past some small ponds housing Puddle Slimes.
Where to Find Cotton Slimes
These bouncy, bunny-like Slimes can be found in Rainbow Fields, Starlight Strand, and Powderfall Bluffs. Cotton Slimes are almost as common as Pink Slimes, and you can often find them hanging around each other.
Where to Find Flutter Slimes
Flutter Slimes sport some beautiful butterfly-like wings, and they can be found exclusively in Starlight Strand. On the way to the southeast edge of Starlight Strand’s pink section, go past the Puddle Slime ponds and jetpack across the large gap to reach an area with lots of Flutter Slimes.
Where to Find Batty Slimes
Batty Slimes can be found exclusively in Ember Valley. You can find them on the western section of the area, near all the lava pools. You can find a bunch of them if you go inside the cave near the center of the area.
Where to Find Angler Slimes
Angler Slimes can be found in Starlight Strand and Ember Valley. These guys look like angler fish turned into Slimes, so naturally you can find them hanging out on coastlines that border the Slime Sea. They’re relatively common, and in Starlight Strand in particular, you can find lots of them if you search the tan areas of the map.
Where to Find Ringtail Slimes
Ringtail Slimes are rare Slimes that can be found in Starlight Strand, Ember Valley, and Powderfall Bluffs. Ringtails have a unique trait where they turn into stone statues during the day. If you see a statute like the one above, you’ll need to wait until night for it to turn back into a regular Ringtail Slime.
As mentioned, Ringtail Slimes are pretty rare and don’t seem to have fixed spawn locations. Your best bet is to wander around during the night and see if you can run into any active ones.
Where to Find Saber Slimes
Saber Slimes are found exclusively in Powderfall Bluffs, the snowy area. On the eastern side of the map, there’s an underground cave area that is full of Saber Slimes.
Where to Find Yolky Slimes in Slime Rancher 2
Yolky Slimes are extremely rare Slimes that can be found in any area. They have a small chance to spawn near chicken nests found in the world. We haven’t confirmed this, but apparently, they have a slightly higher chance to spawn during morning hours.
The best way to find them is to find all nearby chicken nests and then just run between them until you find a Yolky Slime. This can take a while, depending on your luck.
Where to Find Hunter Slimes
Hunter Slimes are rare Slimes that can be found in Starlight Strand and Powderfall Bluffs. Hunter Slimes can spawn anywhere in those two areas, and they don’t have fixed spawn locations.
Hunter Slimes have active camouflage that makes them blend in with their environment, making them rather hard to see. If you get close enough though, they’ll become visible again, and pounce on you. Whenever they activate their camouflage, they make a unique sound, and listening for it can help you find them.
Where to Find Tangle Slimes
Tangle Slimes are very rare Slimes that can be found in any area during a Vine Tangle weather effect. Sometimes, when a Pollen weather effect is really strong, a Vine Tangle effect occurs immediately after. During this time, Tangle Slimes can spawn.
Remember that you can check all currently ongoing weather effects by opening the map and zooming out all the way. Each area shows a weather icon next to its name if there are any going on. Pollen’s icon is a yellow flower with spores coming out of it, and Vine Tangle’s icon is a green curly vine.
Where to Find Dervish Slimes
Dervish Slimes are very rare Slimes that can be found in any area during a heavy Cyclone weather effect. If the winds are especially strong, Dervish Slimes start spawning all over the map.
Where to Find Rock Slimes
Rock Slimes are common Slimes found in Starlight Strand, Ember Valley, and Powderfall Bluffs. They’re fairly easy to find, and you’ll probably see your first batch when you start exploring Starlight Strand. Watch out, these guys like to roll around, so make sure you don’t get ran over by their rocky spikes.
Where to Find Boom Slimes
Boom Slimes are found in Ember Valley and Powderfall Bluffs. In Ember Valley, you can find them hanging around the lava pools. In Powderfall Bluffs, they’ll be at the hot springs. If you didn’t already guess, these guys love to spontaneously combust, so keep your distance.
Where to Find Crystal Slimes
Crystal Slimes are found in Ember Valley and Powderfall Bluffs. In Ember Valley, you can find them hanging out at the lava pools with the Boom Slimes. In Powderfall Bluffs, they are inside the eastern cave with the Saber Slimes.
Where to Find Fire Slimes
Fire Slimes are found exclusively in Ember Valley. Much like their Puddle Slimes counterpart, Fire Slimes can only be found in specific bodies of lava.
The place where we found the most Fire Slimes was in a pool near the big lavafall, in the southern section of Ember Valley. You can usually find about 3 to 5 Fire Slimes hanging out in the lava.
Where to Find Gold Slimes
Gold Slimes are extremely rare Slimes that can spawn anywhere in the game. When one is nearby, you’ll hear a sparkly noise. You cannot store Gold Slimes in your Vacpack.
If you notice that a Gold Slime is nearby, keep your distance and just let the Gold Slime bounce around. If it eats any type of food, it’ll produce a Gold Plort, which is worth lots of Newbucks.
Where to Find Lucky Slimes
Much like Gold Slimes, Lucky Slimes are extremely rare and can spawn anywhere in the game. When one is nearby, you’ll hear a coin-jingling noise. As to be expected, you cannot store Lucky Slimes in your Vacpack.
Lucky Slimes love meat, and if they eat some, they’ll become very happy and spray Newbucks everywhere. As long as you’re nearby but not close enough to scare the Lucky Slime, you’ll automatically collect the Newbucks.
Whew, that’s a lot of Slimes! We hope this helps you on your journey to become the ultimate rancher in Slime Rancher 2. If you have any other questions, let us know in the comments below, and check out our other Slime Rancher 2 guides!
