How to Teleport Using Warp Pipes

ACNH - Warp Pipe Uses
Warp Pipes allow you to quickly teleport around your island, depending on where they are placed. Placing a warp pipe on opposite sides of the island, for example, allow you to quickly teleport between the two locations!

Teleporting Requires Two Pipes

For the Warp Pipes to work, you need to place at least 2 Pipes on your island, so make sure to buy at least two from Nook Shopping if you plan to use them for teleporting!

Additionally, a Warp Pipe needs space where your character will land after traveling through the pipes.

Three or more Pipes will Teleport you randomly

Placing three or more Warp Pipes around your island causes you to teleport randomly between locations! This can be a fun way to shake things up and maybe trick your visitors, but if you want specific locations to connect you need to stick to two Pipes.

Where to Use Warp Pipes

Place Pipes in Your House

You can place a Warp Pipe in your house that connects to another pipe outside on your island, allowing you to travel quickly between locations.

This is very useful if you're decorating and reshaping a far-off section of the island as you can easily access your house's storage just by teleporting using the warp pipe. You could also place the other one by your stores for easy shopping!

Use Pipes Instead of Staircases

Since you can only place a maximum of 8 inclines on your island, you can use the Warp Pipe in place of a ramp to access elevated areas in your island without having to use a ladder!

Warp Pipes Lets You Trade Safely

Many players worry about visitors to their islands accidentally running over flowers or picking up dropped items. As a result, many resort to fencing off major parts of their island and rendering them inaccessible.

With the Warp Pipes, you can now give villagers access to a specific part of the island even if the safe location is very far from the entrance!

How to Hide Warp Pipes

Although Warp Pipes are very useful, they tend to stand out from the rest of the items you can place on your island - especially if you're going for a certain look.

You also can't change how Warp Pipes look with customization kits, but there are several creative ways you can hide them in the background of your island!

Bury the Pipe in the Ground

You can "bury" warp pipes in the ground to hide it by surrounding it with cliffs using the Island Designer App.

It's up to you how you decorate the space surrounding the "buried" warp pipe; just make sure there's space for you to land after warping out!

Hide it Behind Trees

Another great place to hide Warp Pipes is behind trees. The leaves of Palm Trees, in particular, are great at hiding the Warp Pipes due to their similar color.
