As you progress through Slime Rancher 2, you’ll no doubt want to upgrade your gear to help you reach new areas and survive even longer in the wilds of Rainbow Island. That’s where the Fabricator comes in. This machine, along with some much-needed materials, can be used to create upgrades for your VacPack to help you be the best Slime Rancher you can be. Tank Guard is one of the many upgrades you can get and one of the most useful. This is how you unlock Tank Guard in Slime Rancher 2.
Tank Guard Location in Slime Rancher 2
Unlike some upgrades like Resource Harvester and Jetpack, Tank Guard is an upgrade that you must first unlock by getting the Tank Liner. This item is found in the wild and is protected by a secret door and a Gordo Slime. You’ll have your work cut out for you.

Go to the area marked on the map above. This is where you will find a cave with a Phosphor Gordo Slime. The Slime will block access to the cave. Feed it fruit until it explodes to access the rest of the cave. You can easily find fruit on the outskirts of the cave if you don’t have any on you. Once the Slime is popped, head deeper into the cave to find a door with a Tabby Slime statue next to it.

To open the door, you need to shoot a Tabby Plort at the statue. You can get a Tabby Plort by feeding a Tabby Slime some meat. The door will open to reveal a small supply crate. Open the crate to get the tank liner and unlock the tank protector at the fabricator. Now all you need to do is collect the materials needed for the upgrade. This update will allow you to keep some of the items in your VacPack if you lose consciousness.
