Animal Crossing: Bug-Off Event 2022 (dates, times and awards)


The Bug-Off event is being held again at Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the summer of 2022. For the past two years, players have had the opportunity to play Bug-Off with the bug-loving character Flick, and this year is no different. During one Saturday or Sunday of each summer month, players can earn points that can be exchanged for exclusive summer items, and even earn trophies depending on how well they perform.

Flick is a fan—favorite recurring character in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. He appears on the island on random days and offers to buy bugs from the player for 1.5 times more expensive than they are usually sold. Players can also send bugs to Flick, and he will turn them into neat replica models.

This summer is no exception, and Flick is holding a classic Bug-Off game on the player’s island – a bug-catching competition. Players can find a Flick appearing on their islands before Resident Services every fourth Saturday in the Northern Hemisphere and every third Saturday in the Southern Hemisphere.
