Vacpack Upgrade

The Vacpack is the tool that Beatrix LeBeau utilises throughout the course of 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 M on PC), a radar (default button R on PC) 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.

Notes and Tips

  • The vacpack will shoot faster over time into receptacles that accept items (Refinery, Range Exchange, Auto-feeder etc.)
  • The Tank Booster Ultra, Heart Module Ultra, Ultra Dash Boots, and Golden Sureshot upgrades are currently the only upgrades not obtained from the Vackpack Upgrades terminal; they are instead obtained through the 7Zee Rewards Club.
  • The Pulse Wave can be used to push slimes away from food you want to grab, so they don't eat it.
