The Slime Rancher franchise is known and loved for many things from its diverse and colorful environments to the wide variety of Slimes that can be nurtured. One perhaps underappreciated aspect of the game is how fluid its traversal is. This is made easier with equipment upgrades such as the Jetpack, which can help players get to previously unreachable areas.

Upgrades to Beatrix’s equipment require an assortment of components often including Slime Plorts, Newbucks, and other materials acquired throughout the course of the game. Players can get an early start on crafting upgrades like the Jetpack since upgrading in Slime Rancher 2 is available in a laboratory within the player’s home base, The Conservatory.
