How to glitch into the water

Last year in the Summer Update for Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch the wetsuit made it possible for you to swim in the ocean, and now with a new bug it is possible to recreate that experience in the rivers and lakes of your island. Grab your wetsuit (or not) and dive in! Here’s how to get in the water in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

How to plunge into water while crossing animals: New Horizons

Running this error is very similar to the error allowing you to clip items. There are a few points that are important. You will need a ladder and a 1 × 1 object that is as flat as possible. The two best articles for this are:

  • Unfinished puzzle
  • Turkey day table setting

Now that you have your articles, it’s time to start preparing. This disorder only works with a rounded cliff next to the body of water you want to be trapped in. You can either find this on your island or terraform the cliffs. Next, you should surround the ground below with water to make a 2 × 2 square of land, with one of the spaces being the rounded cliff corner. On Turkey Day, place the unfinished puzzle or the center of the table in the center of this square so that it is as close to the center of the rounded cliff corner as possible. From here, water landscape to ensure that the flat object is completely surrounded by water. When everything is done it should look similar to the picture below.

You can now go swimming! Climb the cliff above the water. Then climb down the rounded cliff to top of the unfinished puzzle or table setting on Turkey Day. Your character will likely move around quite erratically as the game tries to figure out where to place your character with insufficient space, but don’t worry – if you ever get stuck, you can always call emergency services from your NookPhone. From here just try to move towards the water and eventually you should descend from the land to the river or lake where you are. This can take some time so be patient!

After you’ve made it in the water, it’s time to explore and take advantage of the perfect photo opportunity! Once in the water, all you can do is call emergency services from your NookPhone. So if you’re having fun, call your old buddy Resetti to fish you and get you back on land. This is a new bug as of patch 1.10 and will likely be fixed soon. So enjoy it while you can! Animal Crossing: New Horizons is an exclusive Nintendo Switch available now.
