Slime Rancher 2: How to Stop Your Slimes Escaping
Having one or two Slimes outside their pens is manageable. A dozen, however, is a nightmare.
With a title like Slime Rancher 2, it’s a given that you would spend most of the time farming the Slimes in the game. But recently, many players are having a hard time keeping track of these Slimes since they tend to escape their pens frequently while you are away exploring.
You start with a coral for your Slimes. The game doesn’t explain the mechanics of the game so players tend to overlook some key things to do to make farming easier and it’s up to the players to find out these things for themselves.
If you are one of the players who are having a hard time keeping your Slimes in their pens and are greeted with dozens of Slimes loitering around your conservatory every time you go out and explore, we’ve got you covered with this quick guide on how to stop your Slimes from Escaping in Slime Rancher 2.
How to Stop Your Slimes from Escaping in Slime Rancher 2
There is only one way for Slimes to stay in their pens and not escape. And that’s by upgrading your pens. It’s an easy answer but what to upgrade for each type of Slime coral requires a bit of thought.
To access the upgrade section for your coral, head over to the green button located on the side corner of your pens. Interacting with it will bring you to the upgrades list.
Upgrading these will require resources that you can gather in the game. Although it’s best to upgrade everything, it will be a bit hard to do since you will have to mine or gather the materials for upgrading.
It’s best to upgrade the pens according to the type of slices you have in them. Here is the list of upgrades you can do and when best to use them.
High Walls Upgrade
You can’t do wrong with upgrading high walls to all of your pens. They allow you to put in more slimes and keep the jumping slimes from escaping. This is probably the first thing you should invest in.
The Music Box is another good upgrade for your pens. Plays a soothing tune that keeps the slimes calm and lets them move less. It’s great for jumping slimes and when your coral is almost full.
The Air Net Upgrade is mainly used as a deterrent for flying slimes. No matter how high you build your coral, flying slimes will always manage to escape without this installed. It creates a force barrier that covers the top of your coral to stop slimes from flying out. They need to be recharged after taking some hits.
There are other coral upgrades that you can purchase depending on the type of slimes you want to put but these three upgrades are ones you should focus on if you want to keep your pet slimes in their respective corals.
