Animal Crossing: New Horizons allows you to create a golden armor just like in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. You don’t really get a bonus for your armor class or something, but it just feels nice. It is also practically impossible to make one without spending a few hours on this game. So, don’t expect to get gold armor until you have gotten to the end of the game.
In this guide, we will show you how to make gold armor in Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Animal Crossing: New Horizons: How to Make Gold Armor
First off, you need to get the recipe before you can make gold armor. The recipe is a DIY recipe, and there are only three ways you can get it. The first way is bay a villager casually giving it to you. This way is by far the easiest. The other two ways you can use are a message in a bottle or a gift balloon. However, since these are random events, it is best not to put your faith in any of them.
After you have your recipe, the next thing you need to do is acquire 8 gold nuggets. This is another task easier said than done. This is because gold nuggets are extremely rare every time you hit a rock (which is the way gold nuggets are mined in Animal Crossing).
However, if you use a better tool, you have an even better chance of getting a gold nugget. As such, we advise that you don’t use a fragile shovel. Also, it appears that you are more likely to hit a gold nugget if you have played the game longer. So I hope you have played the game for a few days at this point.
Of course, you can go to the resource islands to find more resources. This will further increase your chances of finding gold. Once you have gathered the needed 8 nuggets, you can head to the creation station and create your gold armor.
What else can you do with your gold armor apart from wearing it? Did you know that the gold armor is also good for making Robot Hero, which is a giant Gundam-like statue? You can also sell your gold armor for 80,000 bells!
