Get a Rusted Part from the Recycle Box

ACNH - A player looking at a rusted part in the Recycle Box.jpg

The day after you help Gulliver, there will always be a Rusted Part waiting in the Recycle Box. Be sure to grab it, as the Rusted Part is used in the Robot Hero DIY item.

How to Get Rusted Parts

Rusted Parts will not appear unless you successfully help Gulliver

Even if you talk to Gulliver and agree to help him, if you do not give back the communicator parts to Gulliver within the day, you will not find a Rusted Part in the Recycle Box the next day.

Get Rusty Parts from Communicator Parts

If you collect the 5 communicator parts and do not return them to Gulliver, the next day those items will turn into Rusted Parts.

If you want to collect Rusted Parts fast, you can sacrifice helping Gulliver and take the parts for your own instead.

Once you find Gulliver, proceed as usual. Make sure you have plenty of time when changing the dates.

3. Save and close the game, change the date to next day

After you've given Gulliver the communicator parts, make sure to save and close the game. Then change the date to the next day.
