This is a guide to the money rock, and how to hit the money rock eight times in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for the Nintendo Switch. This guide will explain how many bells you can get from the money rock, as well as the easiest method for hitting it all eight times.
List of Contents
In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, all rocks on your island will provide you materials when you strike it.
The Money Rock is a special variant that appears on your island once a day. When struck with a shovel or an axe, the rock will drop bells which you can collect.
The exact location of the Money Rock is random everyday, so you'll need to go around the island and hit every rock until you find the right one.
The Money Rock also only appears once per day and you can strike it a total of eight times, although it's possible to run out of time before hitting it the maximum amount of times!
The first strike will spawn 100 bells, the second 200, then 500, 1,000, 2,000, 4,000, then finally 8,000, for a total of 16,100 bells.
This is a considerable amount of money, so it is vital that you not only do it every day, but also that you hit the rock a maximum of eight times.
When you hit the rock with your shovel or axe, your character gets pushed back slightly and move you further away from the rock.
This means that it's often impossible to hit the rock eight times in a row before the timer runs out. Fortunately, you can dig holes around your character to stay in place.
|1||Go to where one of the rocks is located.|
Make sure all 8 spaces around the rock are empty. These include weeds and fallen twigs.
Equip your shovel and dig two spaces above the rock, ensuring that there is enough space for you to pass in between the rock and the holes.
|4||Position yourself so that you are in the space between the two holes and facing the rock diagonally.|
Strike the rock with your shovel or axe by pressing A.
If a coin comes out, continue rapidly pressing A until you get all the bells.
Note: It's important that you hit the rock as fast as possible if it drops bells so you can get all 8 drops.
|7||If nothing comes out, fill in the holes and find another rock, then repeat.|
