Playing ACNH – What to Do In Your First Days

After you are ready with the first introductory day, by going to sleep after the welcome party, the island is your oyster. Tom Nook will have more certain activities for you to do which will teach you how to improve your island slowly. Probably, you have a simple place at first. But, finally it can grow into a bustling little village. Just keep checking in with Tom Nook once you complete tasks to progress. Also, you are able to check in with him if you are not sure of what to do.

Please be sure to talk to the other Villagers to increase your friendship with them. You cannot actively track your progress with them, however once you get the option to give them gifts after a few days, you are going to know that you are on the right track. They will frequently give you things in return too.

Unlock the Tools

You do not start Animal Crossing: New Horizons with all the tools you require to explore your island. Here is a quick guide on how to unlock them. For more information, simply you are able to visit the individual Tools Guide pages for more information on each.

    • Fishing Rod and Bug Net
      You need to speak to Tom Nook in Resident Services for his DIY Workshop.
    • Slingshot
      You have to purchase the DIY Recipe from Timmy.
    • Stone Axe
      Please give Tom Nook at least two bugs and/or fish
    • Watering Can
      Please give Tom Nook at least four bugs and/or fish
    • Shovel and Vaulting Pole
      You have to give Tom Nook five bugs and/or fish and then speak to Blathers when he arrives.
    • Ladder
      You need to keep following Tom Nook’s tasks and pay off your tent debt.

Collect Resources

Collecting resources not only will earn you Nook Miles (the new achievement-based currency), but you will also be preparing yourself for future activities. You will need resources like the rocks and the tree branches to craft your first tools. Apparently, the first level of Tools break somewhat frequently. Thus, you will need a lot of resources to keep going. If you run out of resources for making the tools, Timmy will be able to sell some to you.

Hit the Beach

Besides collecting resources, you are able to collect the shells on the beach to sell. And among them, you have to find a daily message in a bottle. This bottle is going to have a DIY recipe. Therefore, do not forget to check all accessible beaches. If you discover a DIY recipe, remember to choose it from your Inventory and hit “learn.” If you view water shooting out of a hole on the beach, it means that you have come across a clam. You are able to dig it up and create it to make fish bait, letting you spawn a fish right in front of you.
