You’ll be forgiven for thinking that Slime Rancher 2 is merely a cute and unassuming simulator that contains zero stresses and adversity. However, you’d be wrong. The world outside is full of danger, trials and challenges, from the Tarr to feral slimes to the unending Slime Sea. You’ll need to be quick and tough if you want to survive and not lose all of your goods. Here is how to increase health and energy in Slime Rancher 2.

How to increase max health and energy in Slime Rancher

Slime Rancher 2 continues the fantastic wonders of Slime Science, but mixes it up a little. If you are familiar with the original game, then you’ll think that health and energy are increased through buying upgrades through the upgrade menu using solely Newbucks. However, the sequel integrates the upgrade menu into Slime Science, meaning you’ll need resources and plorts as well as your hard-earned Newbucks to benefit from the upgrades.

You must go down to the Fabricator under the Conservatory. You don’t need to unlock the blueprints for the base upgrades, thankfully, as the Fabricator already has them uploaded.

In the upgrades menu, select either the Health Module upgrade or the Power Core upgrade, as they’ll increase your health and energy respectively.

You must go out and collect the required plorts and resources and deposit them into the Refinery. You can then go into the Fabricator and upgrade them. You won’t be able to upgrade further than the first level for each upgrade until you find the blueprints and parts required.

The Treasure Pods that are scattered around the Rainbow Isles will contain a random blueprint or Slime Science part. Keep looking around until you get the correct blueprints, at which point you can return to the Fabricator to discover what resources you need.

It is recommended getting these upgrades as quickly as you can, as it will make your life incredibly easier out in the wilderness. It may also save your life in the case of a feral slime ambush or a Tarr outbreak!
