There are a number of things that you can’t do in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Nintendo has only allowed you to customize your island, but it has kept few features locked away. A feature like swimming is still largely missing, but there is an elaborate glitch that you can use to jump in the water.

Use this glitch to swim in Animal Crossing New Horizons island

YouTuber consolecaito has found a glitch, which will allow you to swim in the latest Animal Crossing game. This feature is still not a part of the game when it should have been added a long time ago. As much as the community would have loved seeing this feature added, they have to make do with this elaborate glitch. You would need two key items like the unfinished puzzle as a flat item and terraforming tools to pull this glitch off.

First up, open your island construction work with the island designer app. Head to a water body on the north section of your island and build a cliff at one side. Build two square boxes on the water bodies, and ensure you place your chosen flat item on top of it. Ensure you flatten the edge of the cliff as it plays a key role in the glitch.

Now put the item down, and dig everything around it, and ensure you fill the surrounding area with water. Head to the cliff and climb down to the small area that contains your flat item. Turn off your designer app if you wish to take pictures without the hardhat on. Climb down with the help of a ladder, and move towards the water body, and this will glitch you inside the lake.

This glitch will allow you to walk in the water body, and you can also sit and relax inside. Sadly, the game does not have a swimming feature just yet, and hence you cannot swim. Your character will merely walk on the water body, and you can click cool pictures. Enjoy this glitch as much as you can before Nintendo patches it out of the game.
