Grounded’s mutations were added in patch 0.2.0 and are a great system to help you survive the back yard, but how do you unlock all the Grounded mutations?
You can unlock many of them by just simply performing simple actions, such as chopping down grass or smashing rocks, some of them can be purchased, but all of them are not particularly hard to unlock once you know how.
All mutations as of 0.3.0
As the game is updated, it’s very likely there will be more mutations added, as that happens I will make sure to add them to the list, however if any are missed, please do let us know by contacting us.
