As you progress through Slime Rancher 2, you’ll discover new parts of Rainbow Island, each with its own unique environments and threats. To get through these areas and combat these threats, you need to upgrade your gear. While you do have a decent amount of gear available early on, it’s nothing compared to the sheer number of gadgets you can find on Rainbow Island. The Hydro Turret is just one of the devices a Slime Rancher needs to stay safe. This guide will show you how you can unlock Hydro Turret in Slime Rancher 2.

The Hydro Turret is a device that is meant to help you fend off Tarr Slimes. Shoot water to destroy them and not hurt you. Like other gadgets in Slime Rancher 2 like the Dash Pad and Meat Slime Bait, you’ll need to get a blueprint for the Hydro turret before you can do it in Fabricator. Fortunately, you can find the Hydro Turret blueprint very early in the game.
The Hydro Turret blueprint can be found in the northern part of the Rainbow Fields area of the map. This is the area to the west of the conservatory and the area you will visit first in the game. Head to the area marked on the map above. You will find an area where you can jump to a rocky and sandy section.

Jump over the gap and follow the cliff back to the rocky area. Here you will find a supply capsule. Open the supply capsule to get the hydraulic turret blueprint. Once you get the blueprint, you can craft the Hydraulic Tower at the Fabricator in the Conservatory as long as you have the necessary materials placed in the Refinery.
