Everybody loves Gordo slimes in Slime Rancher and Slime Rancher 2. Not only are they adorably fat and squishy, but they also provide many benefits and rewards when utilized correctly! Gordo slimes can unlock access to valuable teleporters, drop numerous other regular slimes, and can even open up areas that would otherwise be inaccessible! There’s no doubt that Gordo slimes are valuable in Slime Rancher 2, but trying to find them can be extremely difficult if you don’t have a guide. Thankfully, this guide gives you all the information you need to hunt down all of the Gordo slime locations in Slime Rancher 2!
Slime Rancher 2 is still very much in the early stages of release, so this list is not fully complete yet. As more locations for these lovable fat slimes are revealed, this list will be updated to include new slime locations!
Cotton Gordo Slime
Everyone loves the cotton slimes in Slime Rancher 2! They look like little round bunnies, and they’re super easy to care for! They’re also super easy to locate in Rainbow Island, just like the Cotton Gordo. The Cotton Gordo can be found in the depths of the southwestern portion of Rainbow Island.
From The Conservatory, walk south and just keep going (yes, it’s that easy)! This Gordo slime is hard to miss, he’s very easy to find once you’re in the southwestern portion of Rainbow Island (use your map!). Feed it any vegetables you have on hand (and a lot of them) to defeat it!
Pink Gordo Slime
The pink slimes are the most common slimes in Slime Rancher 2, and are easily some of the cutest! These slimes are so simple yet so happy to be alive; it’s impossible not to feel better when you’re surrounded by pink slimes! The Pink Gordo slimes are just as cute as their tiny counterparts, just chubbier!
If you want to find the Pink Gordo in Slime Rancher 2, head to the northwestern portion of Rainbow Fields. From The Conservatory, start walking west through the Rainbw Fields, and check your map. Once you reach the Refinery Transfer icon on your map, start walking north until you find the Pink Gordo (he’s not hard to miss, I promise!). You can feed him any food you have on hand to defeat him, he isn’t picky!
Phosphor Gordo Slime
Phosphor slimes are some of the coolest slimes in Slime Rancher 2, they’re like lightning bugs mixed with garden slugs and they’re just so squishy and cute! If Phosphor slimes existed in real life, there wouldn’t be a single person alive who wouldn’t want one as a pet (me included!). Thankfully, the Phosphor Gordo slime is very easy to find in the middle of Rainbow Island!
To find the Phosphor Gordo, start walking south from The Conservatory. Keep walking until you find a ramp, it should be near the water (if you don’t see the ramp right away, just keep searching around the water until you find it). Head down this ramp and walk along the path until you come to a cave, the Phosphor Gordo should be located inside. Once you find the Phosphor Gordo, feed it any fruit you have on hand to defeat it.
Hunter Gordo Slime
For whatever reason, Hunter Gordo slimes are just some of the cutest Gordo slimes in Slime Rancher 2. Even if this Gordo slime didn’t offer some amazing rewards, it would be worth hunting him down (no pun intended) just to see how adorable he is. Thankfully, the Hunter Gordo isn’t too hard to find in Slime Rancher 2.
If you want to find the Hunter Gordo in Slime Rancher 2, you’ll need to have the Starlight Strand region unlocked first. Once you’re able to explore the area, enter Starlight Strand and start walking south. Eventually, you’ll come to a field full of (adorable) Feral Rock-Pink slimes. Search this area until you find a small path, and then along it until you find the magnificent Hunter Gordo! To defeat him, feed him any meat you have on hand!
