When talking to residents, there is a chance they’ll mention a particular item or critter they want. Giving them the item fulfills the request, and gives you a reward, too!

Other requests include delivering items to other residents and reporting back in, giving sick residents medicine, and even going on treasure hunts!

The game keeps track of how much you paid for weekly turnips, and how much profit you received for selling. Buy low, sell high!

Written Communication

Who says writing letters is a dying art? Not Animal Crossing. And while you don’t have to write any profound messages, the game does encourage you to write messages for other players.

There are two goals for this in particular:

  • Bulletin-Board Benefit
  • Popular Pen Pal

Bulletin-Board Benefit

Post something to an Island’s bulletin board. (You can freely delete your post at any time.)

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Rumormongering”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Influencer”

300 Nook Miles.


Popular Pen Pal

Send Letters to other players. Letters can be sent from the Airport for 200 Bells. (If you have another user profile on your Switch, buying items for friends/other profiles will count as sending a letter.)

Level 1: Send 5 Letters.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Art-School”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Boy/Girl”

300 Nook Miles

Level 2: Send 20 Letters.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Science-y”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Student”

500 Nook Miles.

Level 3: Send 50 Letters.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Liberal-Arts”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Poet”

1,000 Nook Miles.


Bug Challenges

Catching bugs is easy-ish. But do you have what it takes to pull off these bug-based challenges? Ok, the hardest part about these can be the spawn rates, but still!

If you’ve got nerves of steel, then go for these goals in particular:

  • Flea Flicker
  • Cicada Memories
  • Netting Better!

Flea Flicker

Catch fleas from Island Residents with a net.

On occasion, an Island resident will complain that they’re feeling itchy. When talking to them, their catchphrases will also change to variations of being itchy. Hit the resident with your net to capture a flea.

Level 1: Catch 1 flea off an Island Resident.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Tidy”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Wild Child”

300 Nook Miles.

Level 2: Catch 5 fleas off Island Residents.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Highly Aware”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Neatnik”

500 Nook Miles.

Level 3: Catch 10 fleas off Island Residents.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Fastidious”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Character”

1,000 Nook Miles.


Cicada Memories

Catch a Cicada Shell.

Note: Cicada Shells are very rare “insects”, found at any time of day during the peak summer months. (July, August in the Northen Hemisphere.) These can be found sitting on the sides of trees.

Visually speaking, they’re a fairly bright orange color, with a long, vertical white stripe along its back.

After some testing, we can confirm that these bugs do not leave trees when running near them. Reportedly, however, they will fall to the ground and disappear if a tree is chopped or shaken first.

The challenge isn’t in catching the shells, but getting them to spawn!

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Shell-Less”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Being”

1,000 Nook Miles.


Netting Better!

Catch 5 wasps in a row from shaking trees.

Wasps will have a chance to appear from hardwood and cedar trees when shaken. To make catching the wasps easier, it is recommended to carry a net when shaking trees. This will give you a few seconds to swing at the wasps before they chase you.

If you can’t find 5 wasps on your island, use a Nook Miles ticket to go on a Mystery Tour. There’s always at least 1 wasp nest in a tree there.

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Accurate”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Deadeye”

1,000 Nook Miles.


Island Dangers

You may have started developing your island, but did you know there are certain… misfortunes to be wary of? Fortunately, you’ll earn some Miles to help offset the negatives!

Here’s some goals to avoid, or rather, purposefully trigger for some more Miles:

  • Pit-y Party
  • Taking the Sting Out
  • Faint of Heart
  • Overcoming Pitfalls
  • Faked Out (ver 1.2+)

Pit-y Party

Bury a pitfall seed on your island!

Note: you do not have to craft the pitfall seed yourself to complete this goal, you only need to bury a pitfall seed in general!

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Wild-Child”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Troublemaker”

300 Nook Miles


Taking the Sting Out

Faint from being stung by Wasps twice, without taking medicine.

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Teary-Eyed”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Crybaby”

300 Nook Miles.


Faint of Heart

Faint from a Tarantula or Scorpion.

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Risen”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Phoenix”

300 Nook Miles.


Overcoming Pitfalls

Fall into a pitfall trap.

Note: Pitfall traps are indistinguishable from dig spots, but they do not occur naturally in New Horizons. Only players can create pitfall traps, by burying Pitfall Seeds.

I’ve fallen into a pitfall trap I made, and it completed the goal on version 1.2.1 c. If you’ve got a pitfall seed, triggering your own trap should work, too!

Complete:

Title Keyword Part 1: “Trapped”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Reckless One”

300 Nook Miles


*Faked Out!

Have fake art appraised by Blathers at the Museum. (Added in the 1.2.0. Update.)

Redd is a very shifty character, selling his wares in the very dimly lit Treasure Trawler. As a result, sometimes you don’t realize you’ve bought a fake until after the fact! Blathers will assess the art if you try to donate it to your museum.

Title Keyword Part 1: “Plausible”
Title Keyword Part 2: “Fake”

Wishes Come True

You’ll need to move the right stick up when not moving to see the sky above. When you see a bright blue object falling with a color changing gleam and a sparkling trail, press the “A” button to make a wish! When done right, the star will shine a bright yellow, and a sound will play. If you see one star, continue looking up, as shooting stars fall in groups.

If Isabelle or Tom Nook mention shooting stars during the morning announcements, shooting stars will fall for the entire night, with an increased frequency. If this happens, you can make several hundreds of wishes in a few hours, easily completing the entire goal card.

Special Visitors and Hospitality

Special visitors can enrich your island-dwelling experience! From new items to add to your collection, exclusive items, and even performances, special visitors breathe new life into the game.

As for your existing residents, befriending them opens the door for new possibilities, such as random gifts, nicknames, and even secret greetings!

Make some new friends, and deepen your relationships with your neighbors with these goals:

  • Wispy Island Secrets

Gulliver’s Travails

Help Gulliver when he washes ashore your Island.

Every now and then, you can encounter Gulliver asleep on your island as a castaway. After talking with him 6 times while he’s asleep, you will then wake him up, and be tasked with finding his 5 communicator pieces on your island’s beaches.

These pieces share the same spawn spots as Manila Clams, which are dark spots in the samd that eject water. Return all 5 pieces to Gulliver, and he will send you a world-travel based item as a reward to your home mailbox.

(As of 1.3.0, you can also encounter Gullivarrr, who also washes ashore your island. Instead of digging for Communicator Pieces, you will need to dive in your island’s ocean, and find the missing communicator that way.

Helping Gullivarrr also counts towards this Nook Mile Goal.)

The treasure trawler can be found at the northmost beach on the island, usually across from your naturally generated cliffs.

Hidden Secrets

So, you’ve developed your island, learned about some island dangers, and maybe even finished some bug challenges. But have you unearthed any secrets on your island? You may even earn some Miles in the process!
