Animal Crossing: New Horizons Pitfall Seeds Guide

What Are Pitfall Seeds?

Pitfall Seeds are essentially prank items that let you trap villagers in a hole in the ground – hence the name. In fact, for many it looks like the kind of spot where you'd dig for a fossil.

They're not useful for much else, but here's how to get them anyway.

How To Get Pitfall Seeds In Animal Crossing New Horizons

There are multiple ways you can get the DIY Recipe for Pitfall Seeds. The recipe can pop up in bottles on the beach, balloons, or just by chatting to villagers.

They're easy to put together, too – you just need 4 clumps of weeds and 6 tree branches.

How To Use Pitfall Seeds

Using your shovel, dig a hole and then plant the seed. Then you'll just need to wait for a villager to fall in!
