In New Horizons, tools can either be crafted at a DIY Workbench or bought from Timmy and Tommy's shop. Tools have varying durability based on prefixes such as flimsy for axes made with stone and tree branches. Tools can be repaired by either upgrading it to a higher durability or by customizing it (if possible) which resets the tools durability.

Misses do not count toward the tools durability. For example, A shovel will only break after shoveling up the max number of items it can (e.g. digging up 100 fossils). The player can dig 100 holes and it won’t affect the shovels durability or cause it to break unless they dig up 100 items.


Tool Ring

The tool ring is a feature obtained by purchasing the Tool Ring: It's Essential at the Nook Stop for 800 Nook Miles. Once purchased, this allows the player to press up on the directional pad to access a tool wheel with 8 slots for tools. With this, the player can easily swap directly to the tool they wish to use.

When added to the inventory, tools are automatically assigned to the wheel if a slot is available starting with the 12-o-clock position on the wheel and working clockwise until the wheel is filled out. Once full, new tools will not be registered automatically but can be assigned to the slot of the players' choice. This is done either by pressing "x" while the wheel is open or by selecting the tool in the inventory and assigning it as a favorite.

Trivia

  • As it currently stands there is no way for the player to track how many more uses a tool has in-game before it breaks.
  • You cannot drop/swap a tool you are currently holding. If your inventory is full and you attempt to pick up the item, the game requires you to drop/swap, then your held equipment breaks, leaving an empty inventory slot.
