Nintendo has many great offerings, but none is as appealing and exciting as Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The online simulation title is so good that most of the players keep spending endless hours creating and maintaining their Islands.

While Animal Crossing: New Horizons is filled with a variety of interesting elements, Scorpions and Tarantulas are crucial to its gameplay. Players keep coming across them during their sessions and try to catch them, of course. But this task is easier said than done, due to their attacking nature.

Surprisingly though, it seems like one player just found a great solution to remain unharmed from these bugs.
