One of the most essential items you will constantly use in Animal Crossing New Horizon game is the slingshot. But did you know there is a top tier version called the Golden Slingshot?
In this guide, I will tell you exactly how you can get this Golden Slingshot so let’s get right into it.
Golden Slingshot Recipe
To get the Golden Slingshot, you will need to obtain a combination of items and perform a key task until you meet the quota. Like any item in the game, you need the DIY recipe specific to the Golden Slingshot to craft it. The only way to get this recipe is to shoot down a cumulative total of 300 Balloons with floating presents. This will take a bit of time to achieve, but with diligence, it can be achieved.
If you are playing the game during Bunny Day which takes place between April 1st to April 12th, there will be a colorful balloon of floating presents that appear along with the regular ones.
Both types will account for the 300 balloons you need to shoot down with your slingshot. You can keep track of your count by accessing the Nook Miles+ menu and look for the entry, “It’s Raining Treasure”. Here you can see how many balloons with floating presents you popped in the intervals of 5, 20, 50, 100, and ultimately 300.
Once you popped a total of 300 balloons with floating presents, keep a lookout for a special colored balloon. Specifically, a gold-colored balloon with a floating present will randomly appear on your island. Pop it with your slingshot and you will find inside containing the needed Golden Slingshot DIY recipe.
Crafting Golden Slingshot
The recipe will reveal 2 items required to craft the Golden Slingshot. That will include 1 standard slingshot and 1 gold nugget. You can obtain gold nuggets by hitting rocks with any shovel or Axe with stamina at 0. If not, you will break the rock and will decrease your chance of finding gold nuggets.
Once you obtained everything, head to your DIY workbench and craft your Golden Slingshot. With this slingshot, you can use it as the standard slingshot. But keep in mind that that the Golden Slingshot will still break, but is far more durable and takes longer to happen.
