Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it Superman? No, no, and No! But, in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you can, in fact, encounter balloons drifting in skies above, carrying a present worth getting, especially when said present can contain 5,000 Bells. But how does one get such gift? That’s what we’re here to answer.:

What you Need:

  • Slingshot.


What you Need to Do:

Step 1:  Having a slingshot, is very important, so if you haven’t crafted one yet, or purchased one from Timmy, you’ll need to do so, as soon as you can.

Step 2:  Whilst out enjoying island life, should you see a floating balloon with a present attached, hurry over to it.

Step 3: Take out your slingshot and shoot down the balloon.

Step 4: Collect the present that falls down.
