Different ways to get newbucks

Now there are numerous methods that players can use to earn Newbucks as quickly as possible, here we will list four of them. Let us start off with the simplest method.

Break Crates

The simplest method is also one of the most common methods which players use to earn a handful of Newbucks in the game and the method is simply to break crates you find in the game, whether you find them in the wilds while exploring or in the most forsaken place in the game.

Breaking crates is not a lengthy process so don’t miss out on it if you want some extra Newbucks without any effort.

Feed The Slimes

Another extremely simple method that players can use to earn some Newbucks is to feed a certain type of slime. The slimes that will reward you with newbucks when you feed them are Lucky Slimes and Gold Slimes. So do not horde those “meat” items in your inventory. We would consider there is no better way to use them instead to feed them to slimes to get some extra in-game currency.

Sell Your Plorts

This is one of the more complex methods to farm Newbucks in the game but it is also the best and quickest method to do it. What you have to do is simply visit a Plort market and sell your Plort for some instant Newbucks. However, it is not as simple as you may think.

Slime Rancher 2 has a whole economy mechanic which can either increase the price of your Plort or decrease it. Here we will explain in detail how to turn the market fluctuation in your favor and get the maximum amount of profit every time.

It goes without saying that whenever the market rate of an item is high, you can sell it at a higher price. When the market rate is low, you are forced to sell it at a low price, The same principle applies here. The market rate for Plorts can either increase or decrease by 30% in the game.

Assume that the original price of the Plort is 10 Newbucks, if the market rate is down by 30%, you will be forced to sell it for 7 Newbucks. If the market rate is up by 30% then you can sell it for 13 Newbucks. It is the basic principle of supply and demand. But the question still remains about how you can turn this mechanic in your own favor and get the most amount of profit every time.

We would recommend hoarding your Plorts after farming them and only selling them when the market rate is high. You do not need to worry about the market rate changing mid-transaction as it will only change during midnight in the game so if you have an errand to run during the day then do that without any worry because the market rate will not change during the day.

One thing to remember is that once you are done with selling your Plort harvest in the market, it’s no secret that the market will become overflooded with those types of Plorts and due to the principle of supply and demand, the price of that certain Plort is going to reduce significantly for a certain amount of days.

We would recommend switching the type of Plorts you farm, every time you perform this method as it will help you to always get the maximum amount of profit. Keep doing this until the price of the Plort you sold the very first time returns to normal, then you can just keep repeating this method to basically have an endless supply of Newbucks.

Mochi Manor

The final method for earning extra Newbucks is a subset of the previous method. If players find themselves a unique type of Plort then they can sell it at the Mochi Manor at a higher rate. An example of these unique Plorts is the Quicksilver Plort.

Be sure not to sell these unique Plorts at a random shop but rather sell them in the Manor to get the maximum amount of profit possible.
