In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, knowing how to get a ladder can make navigating the island significantly easier. Ladders can be unlocked upon the completion of various tasks. Without a ladder, players will be limited in their explorations, so it is important to start unlocking the essential tools right away.

Animal Crossing New Horizons How to Get Ladder

Obtaining a ladder in Animal Crossing is straightforward but requires you to complete a series of tasks over four days. To complete the tasks, you must exchange your Nook Miles for a Nook Miles Ticket.

Once your ticket has been purchased for 2,000 Nook Miles, invite a new resident onto your island by convincing them abroad. After you have successfully convinced them, try to invite two more villagers to your island. You will then have to wait until Tom Nook provides a bridge construction kit. This will allow your new villagers to commute around parts of your island.

Collect the bridge blueprints from Tom Nook, build the bridge, and plot out your villagers' living spaces around your island. The rest is a waiting game. Tom Nook should give you a phone call for the ladder recipe in the next few days, and then you will then be free to gather the necessary materials for the ladder.
