Slime Rancher 2 will have you wrangling slimes, feeding them, and selling what comes out of them for big profits. As you embark on your adventure, you will no doubt want to unlock and discover everything the game has to offer. If you’re looking to explore some additional islands on the map, you will need to defeat some big slimes to do it!
To reach the other islands in Slime Rancher 2, you will need to defeat the Gordo Slimes. These are extra large slimes that only appear in one place on the map. When you defeat the Pink and Cotton Gordos, you will unlock the Ember Island and Strand Island.
The Pink Gordo can be found in the northwestern portion of Rainbow Fields. You’ll start by heading west from The Conservatory, then go north until you get toward the northernmost point of the island. It will then be a bit to the east.
In order to defeat the Pink Gordo, you must feed it until it bursts. It eats fruit, veggies, and meat, so pretty much give it any extra food on hand to make it burst and reveal what its hiding! It will take 30 of whatever type of food you decide to feed it to pop this Gordo.
Taking out the Pink Gordo will give you access to Ember Island. Once you arrive, make sure to be on the lookout for Radiant Ore!
The Cotton Gordo can be found in the southwestern portion of Rainbow Island. You’ll start by heading west from The Conservatory, then head south before you reach the westernmost portion of the island.
In order to defeat the Cotton Gordo, you will need to feed it 30 vegetables. This includes things like carrots or water lettuce which can be found around the map. Carrots are your best bet, as they are the most common.
When you defeat one of these Gordos, you will unlock an area behind it. Head down the path and you will arrive at a device you can interact with. Once you do, you will get a small cut scene showing a portal opening on the map. Head to the location of the portal, and you can travel to the new island!
We hope this helped you figure out how to unlock the other islands so you can discover everything the game has to offer. We have more how-to guides for Slime Rancher 2 if you need more assistance!
