A new type of collectibles that players can now get in Animal Crossing are gyroids, and they come in many different varieties. Acquiring gyros isn’t very straightforward, however, so here’s a rundown on how to get your hands on it.
1. Fragments of a vegetable gyroid
There are two main ways to obtain gyroids in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and the first involves sowing gyroid fragments. Take the Kapp’n boat tour to visit an unexplored island, where you can find gyroid fragments buried in the ground. Once you are back on your island, plant and water the shard and the next day it will turn into a full gyroid.
Keep in mind that you can only take the Kapp’n boat tour once per day, so you are limited to how many gyroid fragments you can excavate each day.the bartender will also give you a gyroid fragment the first time you meet him. Before you can unlock his cafe, the Roost, you’ll need to take the Kapp’n tour and track him down to an unexplored island.
2. Dig gyros after it rains
You can also find gyroids around your island, but only under certain circumstances. Specifically, the random gyroids will be buried in the ground around your island the day after it rains or snows in your game, and you can just dig them up like you would fossils.
What to do with the gyroids
Gyroids are like any other piece of furniture in the game as they can be used to decorate your island or home. What makes them particularly fascinating are the different noises each one makes, and if they are placed close to a stereo, they will also move in time with the music. You can also customize the look of a gyroscope by using a personalization kit.
In addition to the Animal Crossing: New Horizons update 2.0, Nintendo has released a paid DLC expansion for the game called Happy Home Paradise. You can purchase the DLC for $ 25 or access it at no additional cost through the plan. A set of from Series 5 is now available at resellers.
