This guide will show you how to get an axe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons so you can start chopping trees for wood.
How to Get an Axe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons?
Players will eventually be able to enter the Resident Services tent in the middle of the island at the town plaza after starting a new save file and choosing a place to live.
This will start out as a small green tent, but as the game progresses, it will grow into a full-fledged structure. Inside, Tom Nook will be near a crafting table.
If players speak to him, the option “I found a Creature” will appear. Players can give it to Tom Nook if they have caught at least two different types of creatures, and he will give it to his friend Blathers.
Tom Nook will send the player several DIY recipes that require wood, including one for an axe, after the player has donated two different critters to him.
It’s impossible for the two creatures to be identical. Players can donate two different types of fish, or a bug and a fish, or even two different bugs; it doesn’t matter which ones they donate as long as they’re different.
The player can make the axe at the crafting table now that they have the recipe, as long as they have five tree branches and one stone.
Players must walk around the island and shake a few trees with the A button to obtain tree branches. Players must search the island for rocks and hit them with a shovel or an axe to obtain stones.
How to Get Gold Axe?
To obtain the golden axe in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players must first break 100 axes, after which the recipe for the golden axe will become available. Then, at a crafting table, players must find a Golden Nugget and combine it with a regular axe.
