Animal Crossing New Horizons: How to Get Rusted Parts

You'll need Rusted Parts to craft certain furniture items in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Here's where to get them.

Rusted Parts are a fairly rare resource that can be found in Animal Crossing New Horizons. They don't have many uses, but are considered crafting components, given that you'll need them to make things like the Robot Hero statue, among other things. In this guide we'll teach you where to get Rusted Parts, so that you can craft cool statues and furniture items.

How to Get Rusted Parts in Animal Crossing New Horizons

To get Rusted Parts in Animal Crossing New Horizons you'll need to find Gulliver. We've included info on that in this guide. Once you've spoken to him, and helped him, you can do one of two things with the parts you've collected.

  1. Give them to Gulliver. A single Rusted Part will appear in the Recycle Box the following day.
  2. Refuse to give the parts to him. After a day, the parts will become Rusted Parts in your inventory.

Fastest Way to Get Rusted Parts

The only way to get Animal Crossing New Horizons is via the two methods we have outlined above. This means that it'll take you a very long time to collect them, as you'll need to wait for Gulliver to wash up on your beach. The second method is the best way to farm Rusted Parts, as you'll get 5 Rusted Parts instead of one. For now, this is the best way to get them.

What Can You Do With Rusted Parts?

Rusted Parts don't have many uses in the game. So far, we've only come across one crafting recipe that needs them, the Robot Hero. This is a giant robot statue, and it requires a whopping 30 parts to craft. Better get saving!
