Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bug Off trophy is now available to be won.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has carried over several seasonal mechanics and challenges--including the popular summer Bug-Off competition. Must like the Fishing Tourney, Bug-Off tasks players with catching and turning in as many insects as possible to achieve a high score. In previous games, this was run by a green chameleon character named "Nat." Now, however, it has been taken over by a red chameleon known as "Flick." The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on your island.

Here's what you need to know about how to earn a Bug-Off Trophy for your efforts.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Bug Off Trophy: How to Get

Bug-Off trophies are available in three tiers: bronze, silver, and gold. Each tier represents a net point threshold that the player will have had to achieve in order to be rewarded.

Bronze trophies are given for hitting 100 points, silver trophies are awarded for 200, and gold is awarded for 300. Once earned, players will receive these items in their mailbox the following day.

To earn points, players need to participate in the competition. Flick will give them the first entry free of charge, but every entry after that will cost them 500 bells. Players have three minutes to catch as many bugs as possible. The rarer the bug, the higher point amount its worth.
