Animal Crossing: City Folk Equipment
There are three different types of tools in Animal Crossing City Folk: regular, silver, and golden. They all do the same thing, but, for the most part, silver and golden tools have special effects or make the player's job significantly easier. Either way, you'll want to unlock the different types of tools to make your responsibilities easier. Below is a Animal Crossing: City Folk Equipment guide that will guide you through getting silver and golden tools in City Folk.
How to get Silver and Golden Tools in Animal Crossing: City Folk
Visit the city at night (Specifically after 8:00 PM) and head off to the right. On random nights, two of the traffic cones there will be removed, allowing you to walk in. You will enter the Resetti Surveillance Center. In there will be either Don Resetti or Mr. Resetti. Talk to them, and they will give you the Silver Shovel to leave! The Silver Shovel has a chance to double the amount of money gained from the money rock, with Feng Shui increasing the chance of money doubled.
Much like other Animal Crossing titles, the golden shovel is obtained by burying a previous shovel. If the tree grows all the way, you can shake it to obtain a special golden shovel! The golden shovel can plant money trees, although it does not retain the abilities of the silver shovel.
Silver Fishing Rod
The Silver Fishing Rod is sold on rare occasions at Nook's Shop after you have upgraded it to atleast a Nook N' Go. This rod makes it slightly easier to catch fish.
Golden Fishing Rod
The Golden Fishing Rod is obtained by catching every fish in the game. After you have completed this, Tortimor will give you your reward. This rod makes it significantly easier to catch fish, with a lower chance of them getting away.
Silver Bug Net
he Silver Net is sold rarely at Nook's shop after you have upgraded it to atleast a Nook N' Go. This net has a slightly larger bug catching radius.
Golden But Net
The Golden Net is obtained by catching every bug in the game. After you have done this, Tortimor will give you your reward. The golden net has a significantly larger bug catching radius.
After you have donated 700,000 to the town fund, a fountain will be built in front of the bus stop. Throw in a regular axe, and depending on your luck and your answers to Serena's questions, you will get a silver axe. This axe never breaks.
This axe is obtained in a similar manner to the silver axe. It all depends on how you answer Serena. This axe never breaks and chops faster.
The Silver slingshot is sold rarely at Tom Nook's shop after having it upgraded to a Nook N' Go. This slingshot shoots two pebbles at once.
The golden slingshot is shot down after having shot down 8 normal balloons. The golden slingshot will be being carried by three golden balloons. If you miss your chance to hit the golden slingshot, you will need to shoot down another 8 normal balloons. This slingshot shoots three pebbles at once.
Silver Watering Can
The silver watering can is mailed to you after buying 50 flower seeds from Tom Nook's store. This can supposedly increases the chance for hybrid flowers and money trees to grow.
Golden Watering Can
This watering can is obtained by maintaining a perfect town environmental status for 15 days. Much like the silver can, this watering can increases the chances of hybrid flowers and money trees.
