Where to find the Hydro Turret blueprint in Slime Rancher 2

The Hydro Turret is a gadget that is meant to help defend yourself from the Tarr Slimes. It fires out water to destroy them so they don’t damage you. Similar to other gadgets in Slime Rancher 2 like the Dash Pad and Meat Slime Bait, you will need to obtain a blueprint for the Hydro turret before you can make it in the Fabricator. Luckily, you can actually find the blueprint for the Hydro Turret very early in the game.
