There is an annoying detail of Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is its tool degradation system. The problem is that it causes your shovels, nets and fishing rods to break after a while of use. This is why we think you will be interested to know that there is a trick to prevent them from breaking for a long time.
As you probably know, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a cooperative mode that allows you to play with another villager from your island. The interesting thing is that the tools of the second player never break as long as it is the second profile in the game.
So players are creating a second profile on their console and island to have a second character to control. Once they have it they use that villager as a side player to perform tasks like cutting down trees or digging holes without fear of tools breaking.
Something interesting is that there are even players who have taken advantage of the new option to remap buttons on the Switch to control the 2 characters at the same time in a comfortable way.
It is important to mention that with this trick the tools of Animal Crossing: New Horizons also take damage, but they do not break. So once the second profile uses their tools again in their main game they will break quickly.
Just for clarification, the tools still take damage, but still won’t break even at max damage until you use the tool in solo mode or as the leader.
