How to Unlock The Other islands – Slime Rancher 2

In order to unlock the other islands on the map, you will need to defeat the Gordo Slimes which are large slimes that appear in a specific area on the map.

How to unlock Ember Island

The Pink Slimes can be found by heading north of the Refinery area in the Rainbow fields.

You will need to feed the Pink Gordo by feeding it with 30 fruits, veggies or meats to pop the Gordo and reveal the water spring underneath.

After you defeated him, use the stream of water to reach the platform and then proceed further until you come across this button on the ground.

Pressing this button will remove the barriers revealing a fast travel portal that you can access to reach the Ember Islands.

Head into the fast travel portal to head over to the Ember Islands region.

How to unlock Strand Island

Next is the Cotton Gordo which can be found towards the bottom of Rainbow Island at the location shown above on the map.

Head west of the Conservatory to reach this area and here you will find the Cotton Gordo.

You will need to feed the Cotton Gordo with 30 vegetables such as Carrots and Lettuce until it bursts and then enter the tunnel.

Inside this tunnel, you will find a button and pressing it will activate the teleporter that you can use to access Strand Island. Head into the teleporter and you will reach Strand Island where you can find new slimes and resources.

That’s it, now go ahead and defeat those Gordo Slimes to access new areas!
