How to get Crystal Slimes in Slime Rancher

Here we will explain how to get Crystal Slimes in Slime Rancher.

Crystal slimes are dangerous variants of slimes that players can find and capture in Sime Rancher, but where can you even find them? 

Where to find Crystal Slimes in Sime Rancher

To get some crystal slimes, you will need to either visit the Crystal Volcano inside the Indigo Quarry; near the puddle slime pond is one of the three entrances to the Crystal Volcano. Take one of the entrances and follow the path, and you will eventually find crystal slimes inside the cave.

Along with the Crystal Volcano, you can also find crystal slimes on a island off the coast of the Indigo Quarry; it is called the Ash Isle. If you explore a bit on this island, you will eventually find some crystal slimes deeper in the Ash Isle. 

That said, before heading out to find these slimes, be sure to know what you are getting yourself into. Crystal slimes are one of the most dangerous slimes in the game that can kill you quite fast, even if you purchased health upgrades.

This is mostly due to their unique quirks, which makes them spread hazardous crystals across large ground areas when a player is near. If you agitate them, this problem only becomes heightened as the rate at which they make these harmful crystals increases. 

However, there are ways to counter the crystals; the first is to spread water across the area near and on the crystal slimes. Doing this will prevent them from producing the crystals for at least 20 seconds, giving you enough time to capture them or harvest plorts. 

Along with this, you can also purchase a music box, which will lower the rate at which crystal slimes produce crystals and get agitated; You can buy a music box as an upgrade to a slime corral for 350 newbucks.
