I'm trying to hunt for Hunter Slimes in version 0.3.5c in the not-so-secret lake area.

Lake area

Do they spawn at certain times that are more specific than when the sun is set? Also, it mentioned in the code or by the developers anywhere?


The hunter slime wiki page has several tips on catching them


If you want to catch that slime in the wild, do it at night, since they will be less rare.


Because of their masking abilities, you can barely see them sometimes, especially at night. Try looking for their faces, since they are always visible.

And Finally:

Hunter Slimes make a distinctive sound when they turn invisible. Listening for that sound could help you find one!

So all in all, hunting for these rare slimes at night will increase your chances of finding them, but will make them harder to spot in general due to their ability to turn invisible. Keep your eyes and ears open however, and you should be able to find some.


No there is no specific time after dark when the hunter slimes spawn rate increases. The following youtube video (video) shows an actual location however, which is claimed by multiple users in THIS reddit post to have a higher or possibly faster spawn rate.

  • This doesn't answer my question. I'm not looking on tips to catch them, but when they are less rare.

  • @Peanut I answered that, the first quote from the wiki page I stated says that you should do it at night because that's when they are less rare.

If u go to the meadows at night with full fruit meat and veggie the left corner of the map has hunter largo slimes that are feral feed them to get their mineral. Then when u get home u can mix them with another slime. Feeding them also calms them down so they wont attack u afterward.
