Rusted parts are one of the items in Animal Crossing New Horizons. They’re a crafting material, required for several high-end DIY recipes. They’re also extremely rare, and you’ll probably require much more than you have access to at first. Thankfully, there is a reliable way to get them, although it’s a slow trickle. This guide will show you how to get rusted parts in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to get rusted parts?
We only know of one way to get rusted parts at this point. After you’ve encountered Gulliver, you’ll need to wake him from his slumber, then accept his plea for help. Find the five communicator parts he needs and he’ll be off your island shortly.
After a while, you’ll receive a letter from him in the mail, along with a reward. Once you’ve got it, head to Resident Services and check out the recyciling box. You’ll find a rusted part inside. Thanks to the powers of time travel, we know Gulliver will return to your island about once a week, and you’ll get a new rusted part each time he does. So make sure to seek him out every week, or you’ll miss out on one of the game’s most rare resources.
While you’re waiting for him to appear, you can engage in Stalk Market trading by buying and selling turnips, look around the island for star fragments, get some new fruit species growing on your land via Dodo code trading, or even plot to evict that one villager you bear a grudge against.
We’re going to keep investigating the matter, and if we find another way to get the coveted rusted parts, we’re going to update the guide with the new information. If you know something we haven’t mentioned here, feel free to share in the comments.
