Getting a Message in a Bottle in Animal Crossing New Horizons
While you can get by just learning DIY Recipes from your own neighbors and the Nooks, every now and then, it might be helpful to get a few extra pointers from strangers from other islands.
As you’re living out your island life, it’s a good idea to take a stroll down the coasts of your beaches every day to see if anything washes up to the shore. There’s a good chance that you might see a bottle on the shore, and you can pick it up for some goodies.
The appearance of a message in a bottle in Animal Crossing New Horizons seems to be pretty random, but from our experience so far, you can find one on the beach every day. Simply walk up to it and press the Y button to pick it up.
After that, access your inventory with the X button, then select the message in a bottle to learn a random DIY Recipe inside.
To recap, here’s how to find a message in a bottle in Animal Crossing New Horizons:
- Take a look along the coast of your island beach every day to find a bottle.
- Pick up the bottle with Y, then access it in your inventory to learn a random DIY Recipe.
