Hunting Tips by Larry

Greetings, hunters, and welcome to Queso Canyon!

First stop: Queso River, where an endless supply of delicious Bland Queso flows. You will want to start hunting here first as these mice are sick of the queso from the river and will find your standard cheeses, like Gouda and SUPER|brie+, to be more interesting. This river of liquid cheese can be extracted using one of these specialized pumps that has been established by the King, assigned to each hunter. These pumps produce Bland Queso with each successful catch.

Bland Queso can be used in the Prickly Plains to gather valuable spices or at the Cantera Quarry to gather essential Nachore. Spices can be used to make spicier queso cheese and the Nachore is required to upgrade your Queso Pump. The better your pump, the more Bland Queso you can extract on each catch!

Careful not to spend too much time pumping cheese here without upgrading your pump. You will want to pump small batches to use at the Prickly Plains and Cantera Quarry to make pumping more efficient over time!
