Grounded Mutations: List and how to unlock them?

The progression of your teenagers in the garden is not done via levels, but by unlocking mutations offering passive bonuses. Find all the mutations in this guide, with explanations on what to do to get them quickly.

The small world of Grounded is incredibly hostile, if you want to have a chance of getting your teenager back home before he becomes an adult, you will have to unlock the right mutations quickly. It can be incredibly long if you go there blindly. The reverse is also true, and some of the best mutations are quick and easy to unlock when you know what to do. Others will still require a lot of farming. Some mutations have a single rank, others have up to 3, and you must continue to practice the same activity to unlock the following ranks.

Mutations are like passive bonuses that you can freely activate or deactivate in the "State" menu once they have been unlocked. At the start of the game, you can only have 2 active at the same time, but you will unlock more slots as you progress, at least 3 more, for a total of 5, with the Milk Teeth.


Changes to buy at BURG.L

By advancing a little in the main story, you will unlock the oak laboratory, and save BURG.L. You can then buy Mutations from him in exchange for Raw Science. These Mutations are available to all players in the Multiplayer game. This makes them excellent investments. You need to find the additional BURG.L chips to unlock the following Mutations.

  • Human Shield : 3000 Raw Science and Lawn Chip required - Increases maximum health by 30%.
  • Vigorous Breathing : 3000 Raw Science and Black Anthill Chip - Increases maximum Stamina by 50%.
