How to Get Gold Slime in Slime Rancher

Recommended Videos

The Gold Slime is the rarest slime that can be found across Far, Far Range in Slime Rancher. It can be found in the Ancient Ruins, Dry Reef, Glass Desert, Indigo Quarry, and Moss Blanket areas. The Plorts from a Gold Slime can be worth hundreds of newbucks.

Unfortunately, it does not appear very often and cannot be captured. A Gold Slime will quickly run away from the player if discovered, and disappear after a short time. The only way to earn Plorts from one of these Slime in Slime Rancher is to shoot it with any inventory items besides water and chickadoos.

Gold Slimes respond to slime toys and fashion pods as well. Gold Plorts cannot be used to create Largos, which are created by a slime eating another slime unlike its own that produces both slime Plorts, so do not waste them.

The Golden Sureshot upgrade can triple the amount of Plorts dropped from these Slimes. The upgrade is earned by reaching rank 22 in the 7Zee Rewards Club, paying a certain amount of newbucks for each rank. There is also an achievement in Slime Rancher, called Hat Trick, for making a single Gold Slime drop three Plorts. The achievement can be difficult without the Vacpack upgrade.
