The Gunk Cheats and Tips
Scanning is Key
In Gunk, you have to scan each and everything to unlock new abilities. You will need to scan the flora and fauna of the strange alien world Rani is on.
To unlock all 15 abilities in The Gunk, scanning each and everything is the key. You have to learn about each resource before you suck it up.
This will help you in knowing what each item is from a story perspective. You will also get to know about the new upgrades which you do at the crafting table inside the base.
In short scan each and everything that you see in the game.
Know about Resources Categories
To Improve Rani’s skills, you will need to know about what things you have and what you will need for upgrading. There are four different categories of the resources you are going to find in the game: Organic, Fiber, Alien and Metal
You can find these resources throughout the game. The Workbench UI doesn’t mention them but knowing about them is a good way to understand what exactly you need to progress.
Get Super Speed by combining 2-speed boosting abilities
You can boost the speed of Rani quite early in the game. You will need to unlock the ability to sprint in the first upgrades you choose so you can move a little quicker in the game.
After that, you can unlock an ability that will give a temporary speed boost once you suck up some of the game’s gunk.
Get back to Base
You are not going to get any breaks in the game so you have to make your own breaks. You are not forced in the game to move back to your base often but you should do it yourself.
What we recommend is you should visit the base whenever you unlock one of the seven fast travel locations in the game. You have to plant a beacon in the designated area for traveling back and forth quickly.
So, whenever you unlock a fast travel spot get back to the base for spending the resources you have gathered to make Rani Stronger.
Don’t always clean the gunk
For some areas, you have to completely wipe out the gunk to move further in the game, but not always.
When there’s piles and piles of Gunk that just seems impossible to cleanup, it’s a sign to ignore it and find alternate pathing.
