This guide explains how to cross rivers in the game Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH) for the Nintendo Switch. Learn how to get the Vaulting Pole to cross rivers and water.
|1||Use a Vaulting Pole.|
|2||Build a bridge.|
|3||Fill in the river (after unlocking the Island Designer app).|
All of these methods are revealed during the course of the game. That said, the most basic way in the early part of the game is to use the Vaulting Pole.
Equip the Vaulting Pole in your hand and press A next to a river to vault over it. This is essential especially for Mystery Island Tours where there are areas that require a pole to get there.
You will be required to build a log bridge to progress the story. It will easily allow you and the villagers to cross rivers. Additionally, you will be able to build up to 8 bridges in the Resident Services.
Once unlocking the Island Designer, you will be able to terraform land and water. With this feature, you can easily fill in the river with land for easy access. It also has no cost compared to bridges, and you can get it in an instant instead of waiting for a day.
|1||Find five fish or bugs and give them to Tom Nook.|
|2||Receive Blathers' tent from Tom Nook.|
|3||Place the tent somewhere on the island.|
|4||Wait until the next day, and Blathers' tent will be set up.|
|5||Talk to Blathers inside and receive the DIY Recipe for the Vaulting Pole.|
When giving critters to Tom Nook, be sure to give him bugs and fish of different kinds. It will not be counted if you give a critter of the same species that you have already submitted.
The second player (or next succeeding players) can unlock the Vaulting Pole recipe by completing the DIY Workshop held by Tom Nook. However, they will not be able to get this until the first player has the recipe.
Unlock most tools, no matter how much you use the Vaulting Pole, it will not break.
