Slime Rancher Wiki

Vacpack Upgrade.png

The Vacpack is the tool that Beatrix LeBeau utilizes throughout the game and is the main method of interaction with the world. It is used to suck up and shoot out items, which consist of Food, Slimes, Plorts or Slime Science Resources. However the vacpack can't store certain items.

Initially, it provides 100 Health, 100 Energy, has a flashlight (default button F on PC, Yon Xbox Controller, X on Switch controller), a radar (default button R on PC, pushing the Right Analog Stick on a Controller) and can hold up to four types of items that stack up to 20 units each. As the player progresses through the game, upgrades for it can be unlocked and purchased at the Vacpack Upgrade Terminal near the Ranch House; such as the Jetpack or Tank Boosters. However certain top-tier upgrades (like Tank Booster Ultra for 100 storage units) are only available through the 7Zee Rewards Club.

Main article: Augmented Vacpack


The Augmented Vacpack is a Miles Tech augment attached to the normal vacpack used specifically for the Nimble Valley activity.

It is also used in Rush Mode to keep track of how much time is left before the end of the activity.

Notes and Tips

  • The vacpack will shoot faster over time into receptacles that accept items (Plort Market, Refinery, Silos, Warp Depots, Auto-Feeders, Range Exchanges, Market Links, Refinery Links)
  • The Tank Booster Ultra, Heart Module Ultra, Ultra Dash Boots, and Golden Sureshot upgrades are currently the only upgrades not obtained from the Vacpack Upgrades terminal; they are instead obtained through the 7Zee Rewards Club.
  • The Pulse Wave can be used to push slimes away from the food you want to grab, so they don't eat it.
    • It can also be used to pick up plorts more easily when a corral doesn't have a Plort Collector or when free-ranching.
    • One pulse wave uses 20 energy.
  • It is possible to complete the game without the Jetpack. This however comes at the cost of missing The Moss Blanket unless you are skillful enough to get to the Honey Gordo (It's better just to unlock it Post-Game with the extra key you get).
  • Each water "bubble" you suck up when you have the Water Tank upgrade gives you 5 units of water.


  • 1.3.2 - Fixed a bug where the shop occasionally wouldn’t add a slime key to your inventory after you purchased it.
  • 1.2.1 - Fixed bug where radar icons would sometimes shake while moving. At least it wasn’t getting stuck!
    • Fixed bug where the vac would jitter while moving.
  • 1.2.0 - The Augmented Vacpack is implemented, intended for use with Nimble Valley, and is used during Rush Mode.
    • A bug caused the vacpack to jitter when moving.
