Slime Rancher 2 is a beautiful world filled with colorful environments and a wide variety of Slimes that can be bred and nurtured. While out and about exploring the untamed Rainbow Island, players will quickly realize the limitations of their Vac Tank’s storage. Before progressing too far through the game, Slime Ranchers will want to work towards upgrading their Vac Tank with the Tank Booster equipment upgrade.

In order to upgrade Beatrix’s equipment, players will need to gather an assortment of components including Slime Plorts, Newbucks, and other resources acquired throughout Rainbow Island. Players can get an early start on crafting upgrades like the Tank Booster since upgrading in Slime Rancher 2 is available within The Lab at the player’s home base, The Conservatory.

The Tank Booster is beneficial for longer journeys away from The Conservatory, as it will allow players to lug back even more items. Luckily, the list of materials needed to craft it isn’t too long. Here is everything you need to build the Tank Booster upgrade:

  • 450 Newbucks
