While exploring, you will encounter Largo Slimes, larger variants of Slime that can pose a danger to you or the Slimes you're trying to collect. This guide looks at how they work and how to use Largo Slimes effectively.
Most Slimes are small enough to fit into your Vac Pack, but you'll also encounter much larger ones that are too big to suck up. These Largo Slimes are always a combination of two pure Slimes and share characteristics with both.
Slime Rancher 2 Largo Slimes
Created when a Slime eats the Plort of a different type to itself, the original transforms into a mix of the two. These Largos eat the same amount as a single smaller sort but produce twice the number of Plorts, one of each type.
For this reason, Largos are a good choice for ranching because of the extra value they bring - along with other benefits. Take the example of diet. Many slimes are carnivores, but meat is hard to get hold of early on. Giving a Slime on this diet the Plort of a veg-eater will combine the two and allow you to feed it on easily acquired carrots.
There are downsides to Largo Slimes though, and if they eat a Plort of a type they don't make, they will immediately turn into a Tarr Slime that can quickly decimate your ranch, possibly even spreading to those nearby.
For this reason, you have to be very careful not to mix different types of Largo. You can also use Gadget Mode to place Water Turrets around the area to destroy any Tarrs that might appear.
Largo Slimes have one additional downside - some are dangerous. When two pure Slimes that were harmless alone combine, they can attack the player directly or inflict splash damage in an area around the corral. These aren't normally a problem, but if you encounter a large number in the wilderness, you might have bitten off more than you can chew.
