Animal Crossing’s August Bug Off is this weekend

  • The bug fix event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons will return to the Northern Hemisphere on Saturday, August 22, which provides you with the opportunity to get some bug-themed furniture and other exclusive rewards. If you missed this event, don’t worry that Buy Animal Crossing Bells can help you get it quickly.

    In "New Horizons" it works differently from past games. Bug Off is a regular event held by Flick, and Flick is one of the many NPCs that visit your island regularly. Depending on whether your game is in the northern or southern hemisphere, Bug Off occurs on different dates, but it always occurs on the third Saturday of summer.

    During the event, Frick will camp in the square of your town from 9 am to 6 pm, so you don't need to track him down. Just talk to Flick to participate in the competition and he will give you three minutes to catch the error. After the time has passed, please return to him to collect your points and sell your tractor. You can enter the bug as many times as you want, until the event ends at 6 pm. Flick will reward you with points based on the number of errors you catch. The points you earn can be redeemed for exclusive prizes. You cannot choose the items to spend points because they are randomly assigned, but you will get one of them before Flick starts distributing duplicates. In addition to these awards, if you reach a specific milestone before the end of the Bug Off, you will also receive a special bug trophy.

    When searching for errors, remember where they are usually generated. You will often see butterflies, bed bugs and other insects around the flowers, continue to check any flower beds that may be on the island. Since we are in the summer, you also need to check the stumps and palm trees as this is where you usually find beetles.

    Since the "error correction" is always carried out on Saturday, Slider will not hold regular weekly concerts on that day, but you still have the opportunity to enjoy him live. After the recent 1.3.0 update, wandering musicians usually stay on the island on Sundays within a few weeks of the event. However, as the firework show is held every Sunday of this month, it will probably reschedule this Friday's show. As long as you have enough ACNH Bells or Nook miles Tickets, you can participate in these activities within the specified time.
