Slime Rancher 2 is a relaxing game about wrangling adorable, squishy slimes. And that’s true for the most part. You’d probably be surprised to see the rainbow monsters known as the Tarr wreaking havoc if you weren’t already familiar. They are powerful beasts that’ll spread like the plague. Seeing one Tarr on its own is a rare sight to rival that of the Gold Slime. Here is how to defeat the Tarr in Slime Rancher 2.

How to get rid of Tarr in Slime Rancher 2

How the Tarr gets created

The Tarr are similar to vermin, in how they spread and cause chaos. As you are probably well aware, if a slime eats a plort not of its own, it will form a Largo, a mix between both slime types. However, if a Largo comes across a plort not of its own two slime types and eats it, then it morph instantly into the terrible Tarr.

The Tarr have an endless appetite and will eat all veggies and slimes it comes into contact with. It will extend sticky black appendages to grab onto slimes, snaring them as they devour them. Whenever a Tarr eats a slime, it will create another Tarr. This means that whole areas can get infested with Tarr really quickly.

Be careful at night, as due to the presence of Phosphorus Slimes, every area is prone to huge Tarr outbreaks. The Tarr will not hesitate to attack you if you near them.

How to Kill the Tarr

In order to protect yourself and the slimes, you’d better be equipped to deal with them.

Water is the only thing the Tarr are vulnerable against, in any form.

If you are short of options, you can simply vac them up as if a Largo and shoot them out towards the Slime Sea, a lake, a waterfall, or any place where there is water. After a few seconds of exposure, they’ll die.

One of the most effective ways of dealing with the huge crowds that develop in Slime Rancher 2 is to be equipped with the Water Tank vac upgrade. Fabricating it will instantly give your vacpac the capabilities to store water. Go to any water source (aside from the Slime Sea) and you can now suck in water. Shooting water at Tarrs will cause huge splash damage that can destroy numerous Tarr at once.

Also using Slime Science, the Hydro Turret can be crafted and installed (once you’ve found the blueprint in Rainbow Fields!) anywhere there is usually a high Tarr concentration to destroy the Tarr before they become too big of a problem.

All Tarr, thankfully, will expire. If they don’t eat anything for a short while, they’ll explode.
