Looking for rusted parts to build a giant robot or some unique furniture? You are at the right place! In this ACNH guide, we will tell you how to find rusted parts so you can get crafting!

Where to Get Rusted Parts in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Rusted parts are quite rare in New Horizons and they can be used to create the Robot Hero statue and other furniture. The Robot Hero needs 30 rusted parts so if that’s your goal, this is how you can get them.

The first step is to find Gulliver. Yes, that seagull who keeps washing up on your beach. Look for him every day and when he’s there, you will see him asking for your help. Make sure to help him out.

How to Help Gulliver

You can help Gulliver fix his phone so that he can contact his crew to get rescued by them. For this, he needs five communicator parts. You can walk along the beach with a shovel and find tiny holes that spray water. Communicator parts might be hiding under them or they could be elsewhere too. Just keep exploring the beaches of your island to find the communicator parts. Doing this will also get you some clams.

What to Do After Helping Gulliver

After Gulliver leaves, you can go to the Recycle Box in the Resident Services and find one rusted part in it. You will need a lot of patience because from what we know, rusted parts are only associated with Gulliver’s visits as of now. So, keep checking the Recycle Box because you don’t want to miss out on these precious rusted parts. If you forget to pick them up, Tom Nook will empty the oldest items inside the bin when it’s full.

Quickest Way to Get Rusted Parts

Another way to get rusted parts is to NOT give Gulliver the communicator parts when you find them. When you keep them in your pocket instead of giving them to him, they will turn into five rusted parts the next day. But remember that doing this will take you longer to get a Animal Crossing New Horizons Golden Tools recipe for the Golden Shovel.

You can also look at Animal Crossing: New Horizons marketplaces like Nookazon to see if someone’s trading any rusted parts. You can also trade them with a friend.

How to Craft Robot Hero with Rusted Parts

Once you have enough rusted parts, you can think about crafting the Robot Hero. But there’s more stuff that you will need. You can redeem 5000 Nook Miles at Nook Stop to get the Robot Hero crafting recipe. Here’s what it includes:

  • 30 Rusted Parts
  • 10 Gold Nuggets
  • 90 Iron Nuggets
  • 1 Gold Armor
  • 1 Rocket

This DIY recipe will give you the stylish robot toy in ACNH. We hope you get your hands on these rare rusted parts in Animal Crossing: New Horizons soon! Meanwhile, keep checking our useful guides on Animal Crossing New Horizons Wiki.
