Jurassic World Evolution 2 how to unlock everything

Jurassic World Evolution 2 how to unlock everything

There’s a lot to keep you busy in Jurassic World Evolution 2, but if you want to know how to unlock everything, the guide below should get you moving with more difficult dinosaurs, monorail, lagoon, aviary and gyroride. The mini disasters that you’ll face along the way, like diseases, fractured bones and storms will add to the challenge of it all, but with the tips below you should be able to get everything in the bag and there are links at the bottom of the page for more tips to help you succeed in the game.

The general point is that you setup both the the Expedition Center and the Science Center and you’ll use these to land all of the unlocks. You’ll need scientists and a good supply of money behind you, so you’ll also need a Staff Center too, along with a functioning park that makes a decent amount of profit per day.

If you find yourself struggling with either scientists or losing money for your park, you can check out the links at the bottom of the page, which will take you to more of our guide to Jurassic World Evolution 2. You can also check out this tutorial on how to train scientists, which will help you get more from them as you go about trying to unlock everything.

How to unlock dinosaurs

The basic idea behind unlocking dinosaurs is that you need to send out scientists on expeditions to bring back fossils. You then use the Science Center to analyze the fossils to build up enough genome to be able to sequence the dinosaurs. However, a lot of the dig sites will need you to unlock them to be able to access the expedition and get the genome for bigger and better dinosaurs like the T-Rex.

To unlock the dig sites, you need to go into the Research section of the Science Center and set your scientists to working on the various dinosaur categories in the Species section. You’ll be able to see which nodes have specific requirement to unlock before you can start the research and these will be the main focus of the rest of our guide.

For some of the dinosaurs, the requirements are a bit tricky, so there are details below on each of them to get you over the line. We’ve ordered these in terms of difficulty, with the more challenging first, so you can pick them off if you’ve already done the easier ones below.

Carnivores – the reason these are the most difficult to unlock is because you’ll need to have a dinosaur in your park with two fights lost and another with two fights won. If you’re not too sure how to land this, you can check out the video below, which will show you which dinosaurs to put together and how to land the two losses and the three wins to unlock the larger carnivores.

Once you’ve done that, the next challenge will be to genetics skills to unlock the Piscivores 2 node. To boost this, you’ll need to either train or hire scientists to get up to the 18 Genetics skill with just 4 scientists. You can check out the link at the bottom of the page to find out how to get more scientists if you need them. For Piscivores 3 you need to get a Park Rating of 3.5 stars, but if you’ve put in a few of the earlier large carnivores with some cool genetic modifications then you should be well on your way to getting this.

Armored Herbivores – some of these nodes are easy to do with earlier node unlocks and increasing herbivore population, but for Ceratopsids 4 you’ll need to release 3 dinosaurs with the defensive trait and you can find out more about how to do this in the Welfare section below. Finally, the Ceratopsids 5 node is another fights won unlock, so you can again see the video above to do this.

Medium and Large Herbivores – these nodes can be unlocked with the tips already covered with Hadrosaurs 2B requiring the Long Lived Trait, so see the section below on Welfare; Hadrosaurs 3B is another lost fights unlock and Hadrosaurs 4 needs the park rating of 3.5.

Flying Reptiles – This is a relatively easy section to unlock with you just needing enough skills and enough flying reptiles released in your park to complete it.

Marine Reptile – It’s a similar story for Marine Reptiles as their Flying cousins, so you should be able to breeze through these.

Small Herbivores – this is the easiest of the Species section with simple node unlocks for total dinosaur population and previous node research.

Exclusive dinosaurs – there are five dinosaurs that are exclusive to the Deluxe version of the game – Attenborosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Huangosaurus, Megalosaur and Geosternbergia – however, if you missed this, we’re expecting a Deluxe Dinosaurs pack to drop at some point in the not too distant future.

Hybrids – to unlock these, you need to complete the Jurassic World missions in the Chaos Theory mode. The game will walk you through what to do right up to the end in each of the two, which will net you the Indominus Rex and the Indoraptor.

How to unlock everything from the Structures section

Infrastructure – Construct an operational Staff Center, Response Facility, Palaeo-Medical Facility, and Science Center and you’re golden for this section.

Power – Construct the Small Power Station, 3 and then 5 operational Substations, and Park Rating of 2.5 stars followed by 3.5 stars for the final node.

Guest Comfort – The two biggest challenges here are achieving 3.5 star rating (see notes above) and getting 500 guests. If you get a star rating of 3.5 then you’ll probably hit the guest unlock too, but if you’re just a little out you can focus on your park appeal, which is calculated from visible dinosaurs and attraction. Boost them to get more guests and focus on larger and more impressive species to have a bigger impact on your appeal. A T-Rex and a Spinosaurus will go a long way with this one.

Attractions – see the 500 guests tip in Guest Comfort for the Tour Rides, and you’re bound to have a viewing gallery in to get the Guest Attraction. Then you just need to construct an operational Avian Hatchery, Lagoon Hatchery and Guest Attraction to get the rest (see the sections below on the hatcheries).

Amenities – again see the point about 500 guests in the Guest Comfort section. For the Luxury guests, get more hotels and Gyrostations, for the Nature guests, get more Viewing Platforms and the Innovation Center.

Film-specific buildings – if you want to unlock all of the styles of buildings, then you’re going to need to complete the Chaos Theory mode for the film that you want to replicate. For example, if you want Hammond’s original style then you’ll need to complete Jurassic Park. Work your way through all of these to land everything that you can get.

Unlocking dinosaur Welfare

The Welfare section also includes a few extra structures, including the the Enclosures and Dinosaur Creation, which is the hatcheries. See sections below for each of these:

Enclosures – a little park ratings boost and adding in carnivore and piscivore dinosaurs will unlock everything here.

Dinosaur Creation – more park rating and unlocking the Aviary and Lagoon nodes will complete everything here.

Medicine – to get all of these, its a combination of keeping dinosaurs with diseases comfortable for a specified time, quarantining them, taking photos of infected dinos, keeping wounded dinosaurs separate to prevent them from fighting, disinfecting feeders with Ranger Teams, and medicating dinosaurs with the respective medicine for all of the inoculations.

Gene Modification – for the base modifications, increase dinosaur species, release dinosaurs with specific traits (see details below), medicate 5 dinosaurs, have a dinosaur with 2 lost fights (see video above), unlock the first chain of nodes on the left to give you all of the second batch, and unlock the second batch to crack the third section.

To apply traits, go into the hatchery you want, choose an empty hatchery bay and before you select the dinosaur move to it and check the Modify Genome prompt in the bottom right hand corner of the screen. On the next page you’ll be able to select the traits you want, which will correlate to the unlocks mentioned above.

There are also a few extra cosmetic genes that you unlock by 5-star completing the various Challenge Mode locations. This will keep you busy for a while, especially seeing as some require certain difficulty settings to achieve it.

Unlock Jurassic World Dominion dinosaurs and buildings

With the arrival of the Dominion DLC for Jurassic World Evolution 2, there are some new noteworthy unlocks to go for. Obviously, you’ll need to buy and download the expansion to be able to play it, but once you do that you’ll have a whole new campaign and Choas Theory section to complete.

These will give you the Pyroraptor, Dimetrodon, Therazinosaurus, Giganotosaurus and Dreadnoughtus and if you’ve made it through everything above then you should breeze on through the Biosyn Sanctuary campaign, which gives you the vast majority of the unlock extras from Jurassic World Dominion.

In addition to the Dominion dinosaurs, you’ll also get the Hydro Power Hub building with its underground Hyper Loop power system, so you don’t need lots of overhead power lines in your park. It’ll also give you the Research Outpost, which is like a viewing platform that you can put inside your enclosures.
