This is a guide to farming Iron Nuggets, a DIY material in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). Read on to learn how to get iron nuggets, where to farm iron nuggets, how they can be used, whether or not you should sell iron nuggets, and more!
|Gold Nuggets||Iron Nuggets|
The best way to get Iron Nuggets is by hitting rocks on the islands you visit on Mystery Tours, the tours you can go on by using the Nook Miles tickets. Remember to bring axes or shovels to hit the rocks with.
You can only get Materials from the Rocks on your island once per day, but you always have a chance to find them on Mystery Tour Islands.
Mystery Tour islands will give you fresh rocks every time you go, so you can get as many materials as you want in a day.
If you dig two holes behind you when you gather the various materials from rocks, you can avoid being bounced back too far, allowing you to hit the rock 8 times repeatedly and get the maximum number of materials.
|Clay||Stone||Iron Nugget||Gold Nugget|
You can find a variety of materials from hitting rocks, such as Clay, Stone, and Iron Nuggets, but all of them have a random chance of dropping. Iron Nuggets are somewhat uncommon, but you should be able to get at least one or two from Rocks most of the time.
If you eat a Fruit, you will gain a point of Stamina, which will cause you to break a rock when you hit it with a Shovel. Stamina won't decrease until a day has passed, so try picking up a tree with the Shovel or sitting in a piece of furniture to decrease your Stamina.
Once in while, you can get Iron Nuggets by talking to a resident. The chance of receiving them is pretty low, so it's not recommended as an effective way to gather them.
You'll receive 5 Iron Nuggets from one of the other residents when you are working on making Nook's Cranny, to help you reach the needed 30 Iron Nuggets.
|Blue Balloons have a higher chance of dropping crafting materials.|
You can sometimes get Iron Nuggets from the Presents dropped by shooting down balloons. You need a Slingshot to shoot down the balloons, and they can be pretty rare, so shoot them down whenever you see or hear them!
Iron Nuggets have a lower drop rate than normal stones, but you should still get one or two of them for each rock you hit with a shovel/axe. This means that if you want to get a lot of these, the only option is to do this daily.
Iron Nuggets are also necessary to open Nook's Cranny. You will need 30 pieces of all three kinds of wood and 30 pieces of Iron Nuggets in total.
