In order to get the Iron Nuggets in Animal Crossing, there are some ways that you can do it.
The first thing that you should have is a Stone Axe. This tool is totally used to hit the large rocks where you can successfully get the Iron Nuggets from. If you already have a Stone Axe, you’re able to hit these rocks several times. By hitting the large rocks, there will be possibly Iron Nuggets, Bells, Stone and also Clay to be released from.
Though there’s no guarantee that you will get the Iron Nuggets every time, hitting the large rocks can be the best way to get the Iron Nuggets. Here, try to hit the rocks without breaking them a lot. Aside from the large and dark rocks, you can also try to find the small, silvery rocks which probably lead you to get the Iron Nuggets.
By hitting the rocks, you usually can get at least three items per day. So ensure to keep hitting each of the rocks on your island multiple times per day. Grab your Stone Axe and also shovel, stand close and you can then hit the rocks.
If you just hit the rocks for the first time in Animal Crossing, you surely need some tips and tricks in hitting or breaking the rocks in order to get the Iron Nuggets. To note, in order to break rocks fast in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, at least there are two things that you will need, they are a stone axe and fruit. It’s pretty easy to get the fruit as it grows anywhere on your island.
Here’s how to break the rocks fast!
- Make sure to eat the fruit. You surely have 1/10 of fruit to consume.
- Then, approach the rock you want to hit and then hit the “A” key.
- The rock will automatically break and then your fruit will return to 0.
Aside from hitting the large rocks, you can also get the Iron Nuggets by using the Nook Miles Tickets. You can do it after you have paid off your Moving Fee of 5,000 Miles with Tom Nook. Then, you will open the Nook Miles Rewards up of the Nook Stop Terminal in Residents Services. Moreover, you’re able to purchase a Nook Miles Ticket for 2,000 Miles that you can trade in at the airport for traveling to another deserted island.
By visiting another deserted island, you will find fruit trees, bugs, fish, weeds and many more, even a new villager to come and live on your island. But the important thing here is to totally find the two rocks to grab more Iron Nuggets from. In our experience in the way of getting the Iron Nuggets, at least we were getting at least six Iron Nuggets per island. We think that as long as you have enough Miles, you surely can buy as many Nook Miles Tickets, so you will have a big chance to get more Iron Nuggets in another deserted island.
Another gorgeous way to get the Iron Nuggets in Animal Crossing: New Horizons is to farming the Iron Nuggets. Of course, to farm it may take a bit of a tricky way to do. But it doesn’t matter, considering you will need the Iron Nuggets as long as you play this game.

Here’s how to farm the Iron Nuggets in Animal Crossing!
- Hold your shovel and stand beside a rock.
- Then, you can turn around and face away from the rock.
- After that, dig two holes, so you can stand between the holes and the rocks. However, this way avoid you from bouncing backward after each hit.
