Bug-Off is a special event in Animal Crossing: New Horizons every summer. Help Flick and play Bug-Off to earn exclusive Animal Crossing rewards.
The Bug-Off event is happening again in Animal Crossing: New Horizons for summer 2022. For the past two years, players have had the opportunity to play Bug-Off with the bug-loving character Flick and this year is no different. For a single Saturday or Sunday in each month of summer, players can earn points that can be traded in for exclusive summertime items, and even earn trophies depending on how well they perform.
Flick is a fan favorite reoccurring character in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He will appear on random days to the island and offer to purchase bugs from the player for 1.5x as much as they normally sell for. Players can also submit bugs to Flick and he will turn them into neat replica models.
This Summer is no different and Flick is hosting the classic game of Bug-Off, a bug-catching competition, on the player’s island. Players can find Flick appearing on their islands in front of Resident Services every fourth Saturday in the Northern Hemisphere and every third Saturday in the Southern Hemisphere.
