Slime Rancher 2 Radiant Ore: Where To Get

Radiant Ore can be found in Ember Valley, but you'll first need to defeat the Pink Gordo to unlock the area. You'll also need a Resources Harvester to be able to collect Radiant Ore once you find it.

To get the Resources Harvester, simply collect 10 Cotton Plorts by feeding veggies to Cotton Slimes (the bunny-like slimes that wander the starting area). Once you've done this you can trade in the Cotton Plorts in the Refinery next to the Fabricator in the Science Lab to create the Resources Harvester.


The Pink Gordo will be located north of the blue zone on your map, west of the cliffs in the starting area. Pink Gordos will eat any food and do not have a favourite meal so simply pack your gun with food and feed the Gordo until it explodes.

Once this happens, the path will be clear, and you can stand on the nearby geyser to get to the portal above. Enter the portal, and you'll be taken to Ember Valley where you can get access to Radiant Ore easily. Radiant Ore appears as square luminescent blocks of metal and spawns randomly within Ember Valley.
