Top five glitches in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Climb of the highest cliff in the game

You might already know this if you are playing ACNH for a while that fourth level cliff is the highest level cliff. The game prohibits you from climbing the fourth level cliff by saying, “It’s dangerous to climb any higher.”

However, with the help of a glitch, you can easily climb the cliff and place some items there. Not only it looks beautiful but even enhances the overall look of your island.

In order to reach the fourth cliff, create four open tiles and then create an angled cliff in one of the corners. After that, place an item in the middle, and as you turn from the item dig a hole with the terraform tool. The aim is to turn as quickly as possible and fill the spot where you are standing. It might take some tries, but with constant efforts, you will master the process.

Get Inside of some items in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

The items in New Horizons are mostly used to decorate your island. You can’t use them the way you like and can’t even get inside them. Surprisingly, with the help of this glitch, you can enter some items, which look quite unrealistic at first glance.

You must have a corner cliff for this glitch to work for you. Later you have to place an unfinished puzzle just at the corner of the cliff horizontally. After that, place the desired item about a half-space away from the puzzle. The glitch will not work if you place the item right next to the puzzle, so be careful.

You can use several items like the Cypress Bathtub, Clawfoot Bathtub, Croppie Bridge, Phone booth, Giant Teddy Bear, Teacup Ride, Playground Gym, and Garbage Can.

Camera trick

In ACNH, everyone’s island is their pride and joy. Naturally, they love taking beautiful pictures of their creativity and show them to their friends. However, not everyone knows that they can hide their avatar from the frame to get a better angle and a picture.

You just have to click on the camera icon and get ready to take the picture. Following that, you have to move your avatar out of the frame and just click to get the picture. This helps you in getting the beautiful scenery of your island added with your own creativity.

Duplication glitch in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Bells run the economy in New Horizons. Being a prime item, players need a ton of bells to decorate their island to stand out from others. Naturally, farming bells is not a simple task to do, but with the help of this duplication glitch, you can make millions of bells easily.

Basically, you can duplicate any item in the game in just five minutes and make about 12 million bells effortlessly. The best item to duplicate is the Royal Crown, but in case you don’t have this item you can go for Golden Nugget. Yes, you can even duplicate some bells, but it’s not an efficient way to earn money.

First, you have to select the item you want to duplicate and ask a friend for their assistance. After that you will need a Nintendo Switch Online Connection; in case you don’t have one you can try a seven-day trial and make a lot of bells for the future too. Later either you or your friend has to host and ask for the dodo code from them.

Once you enter the island, you have to make sure no one is there and just start dropping the desired item. After two minutes thirty seconds, you will notice an auto-saving option on your Switch. You have to take advantage of the auto-saving option and after three full circles; you have to power off your Switch to disconnect it.

This will bring you back to your own island with all the items you placed back on your inventory. Moreover, you will see that all items you dropped in your friend’s world are there as well. With this process, you will be able to get tons of duplicate items easily. Make sure you time it correctly with the third loop circle of auto-saving.
