Learn all you need to know about one of the valuable resources of Slime Rancher 2, the Buzz Wax.

Beatrix never gets tired of chasing those slimy-jello monsters. They look cute, though, don’t they? Especially when they explode and give you stuff? That’s the neat part. However, Beatrix has other things to collect besides ranching the Plorts out of those Slimes. And these other items can be deposited into the Refinery to the Fabricator to your hand as a cool new Slime Science gadget.

However, Buzz Wax is one of those valuable resources. You simply cannot have a taste of that, for sure. This is totally for Beatrix’s new Slime Science project. Without further ado, let’s jump into the depth.

What is Buzz Wax in Slime Rancher 2?

Buzz Wax is basically a common Slime Science resource. You need an Apiary to collect Buzz Wax. And this Apiary can be crafted in the Fabricator using Blueprints. After that, deposit the Buzz Wax into the Refinery. You can now craft gadgets or other items in the Fabricator when you have the necessary Blueprints. Check out here to learn more about Slime Science.

Buzz Wax can be indicated as a large yellowish-brown lump. This appearance is the product of absorbing pollen oils. Legend says the Buzz Wax is the worst chewing gum in the history of Far, Far Range in Slime Rancher 2.

How to Get Buzz Wax?

At first, I would suggest crafting a Jetpack to travel your way around much faster. You will need Radiant Ore to craft one. Check out here to learn more about Radiant Ore. In short, you can get Radiant Ore from Ember Valley. Moreover, if you can find Pink Gordo on the NorthWest frontier of the Rainbow field, it can aid you on the way to Ember Valley.

Moreover, you also need to craft the Resource Collector. You will need 10 Cotton Plorts to craft this item.

Now, to get Buzz Wax, you must have access to the Starlight Strand area in Slime Rancher 2. If you haven’t unlocked that part yet, we have another way around. Takes a bit long time than usual, that is all.

Head to the Southern part of the Rainbow Field. You will see a Cotton Gordo blocking your way. His favorite diet is Water Lettuce, and the normal one is vegetables. You have to feed him either until he explodes out of his misery. Now, when he explodes, he can generate a Teleporter. It will take you to the Starlight Strand.

You will see Buzz Wax spawners all over the Starlight Strand. These will be hanging from the tree trunks or even from the roots. You will notice that the tan liquid is dripping from the hive. However, there is a distinct feature to differentiate the normal Buzz Wax hive from the Honey Hive. Check it out here.

After you have found a Buzz Wax hive, collect the tan liquid with the Resource Harvester. Now, you can make cool Slime Science gadgets, like Tank Guard, once you have deposited Buzz Wax in the Refinery.

That is all you need to know about harvesting Buzz Wax in Slime Rancher 2. Cheers!

As you are already into Slime Rancher 2, I would presume you might want to know whether Slime Rancher 2 is available on Game Pass, or can you even play it as multiplayer and more answers to your curiosity. Hop in!
