Animal Crossing New Horizons isn’t exactly a realistic sim game. It portrays an idyllic sort of life, one where money grows on trees and banks actually reward you with decent interest on your savings account. It’s far removed from the stresses and strains of reality. Well, perhaps not every sort of strain… Here’s how to poop in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
How to Poop in Animal Crossing New Horizons
Taking a poop in New Horizons isn’t too difficult and requires two items that won’t come as any surprise to you: food, and a toilet.
You should already be up to speed with how to acquire food, but just in case you aren’t then you can read our guide on how to eat fruit. Other food, such as eggs, can also be eaten for the purposes of inducing a bowel movement, though.
To eat food, remember that you’ll need to open your inventory, choose the food you want to eat, and then select “Eat 1.”
Now that you’ve worked up the urge, you’re going to quickly need to build a toilet and place it somewhere in your home. In hindsight, you probably should do this first!
Regardless, to build a toilet you will first need to acquire one. It can be purchased from Nook’s Cranny for a very pricey 4,400 Bells. Alternatively, you can try shaking trees to find one as a reward, waiting for a villager to gift you one, or popping balloons. But time is of the essence here, right? So hopefully you’ve got plenty of coin handy!
Next up is placing the toilet in your home somewhere. You don’t need to fashion a specific bathroom if you don’t fancy it; toilets can be placed literally anywhere within your abode. Right next to your bed, perhaps, just for convenience? It’s up to you.
Now, you’ve eaten the food, you’ve got the toilet. All that is left to do is hop on and have a squeeze. To do so, simply approach the toilet and interact with it by hitting “A.” Shortly afterward your character will do their business.
Here’s a step-by-step breakdown to clarify:
- You’ll need food and a toilet to take a poop in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Any food can be eaten, such as a fruit or eggs. A toilet can be purchased from Nook’s Cranny for 4,400 Bells.
- Eat your food by selecting the appropriate action from your inventory; place a toilet anywhere in your home after you have acquired one.
- Approach your toilet and press “A” to interact with it. Your character will hop on and take a dump.
