Golden Slingshot

Seren Morgan-Roberts


This page offers information on how to obtain the Golden Slingshot. This one can take a little dedication, but it isn’t as challenging as other golden tool DIYs.

How to Get the Golden Slingshot

To get the golden slingshot, you need to shoot down 300 balloons! Balloons will constantly spawn whenever you’re active on your island, so you could get this DIY fairly soon.

When you’ve shot down 300 balloons, keep an eye out on the skies, as a golden balloon will spawn soon after you’ve hit the milestone! It could be a few hours after or it could be the next day. When you shoot down the golden balloon, it’ll contain a DIY for the golden slingshot recipe.

Pop balloons you find floating in the sky using a slingshot!

The Golden Slingshot

The Golden Slingshot requires a gold nugget and a slingshot to craft it. In previous games, the golden slingshot would shoot 3 bullets into the sky, making it easier to shoot down balloons. Unfortunately, this version of the golden slingshot does not have such abilities. Instead, it is just a more durable version of the standard slingshot.
