Like most other games, Slime Rancher 2 includes health and damage as a not too stressful survival mechanic. Players don’t regularly lose health like in other games, though there are a couple of formidable enemies that Slime Ranchers newbies should be aware of, Tarr Slimes and Feral Slimes.
Tarr Slimes have returned in Slime Rancher 2, and they’re just as ugly and annoying as ever. For those unfamiliar with these troublemakers, Tarr Slimes are the product of crossing Slime with other Slime varieties more than once. This occurs when, for example, a Pink Slime eats a Phosphor Slime Plort and becomes a Pink Phosphor Slime, but then eats another variety of Plort such as a Tabby Slime Plort.
Tarr Slimes can grow out of control, as their main goal is to infect other innocent Slimes and turn them into Tarr Slimes as well. They, along with Feral Slimes, can damage Beatrix LeBeau, so increasing your character’s health is an important step early in the game. Players can improve their health by building and upgrading the Heart Module.
How to create and update the heart module in Slime Rancher 2
Similar to other craftable equipment such as the jetpack Y board bootsplayers who want to build the heart module should head to The laboratory down The Conservatory and visit the Maker shown above. This machine contains a list of all the buildable equipment available to players and all the materials needed for crafting.
What components are needed for the cardiac module upgrade?
The Heart Module is perhaps one of the easiest gear upgrades available early in the game. Players who want to increase their health can do so with the following items:
- 450 new dollars
- ten pink plants
If you’re having trouble staying alive after building the basic health module, you can return to The Lab to upgrade it further.
