Animal Crossing: New Horizons update targets the game's most lucrative insects

The latest patch for Animal Crossing: New Horizons has attempted to make some changes to the economy of the game. The most obvious one is that the Bank of Nook has slashed interest rates, a move players discovered upon signing in after the update. However, it seems that this isn't the only change to the economy, as data miner @_ninji has discovered that the spawn rates of profitable bugs have also been cut.

When checking the updated code, Ninji quickly realized that insect spawn rates have been adjusted and unified. This means that there are no longer specific months during which certain insects spawn more often. The change affects several high priced bugs, including Tarantulas, Scorpions, Atlas Moths, Peacock Butterflies, and Emperor Butterflies.

Luckily, dataminers are saving many from expending the hassle and and disappointment of finding this out for themselves in-game. Everyone's favorite furry Twitter leaker, Ninji, shared the updated spawn rates of some of the game's best-selling insects in a recent thread. They note that "spawn rates have been unified for all insects," whereas their commonality or rarity used to seasonally ebb and wane prior to version 1.2. Citing their own data, they explain that once-plentiful peacock, emperor, and atlas butterflies have all had their spawn rates cut by figures ranging from 50 to 90 percent, while man-faced stinkbugs and scarab beetles have been similarly culled and numerically overrun by their less pricey counterparts. Finally, their most devastating finding is that tarantulas' and scorpions' rates have also been "significantly nerfed."

But, more troubling is the discovery that all of the bugs which sold for good prices at shops have been nerfed to spawn less often. Peacock butterflies, emperor butterflies, and atlas moths have all been tinkered with such that they appear less. Tarantulas and scorpions seem to have been slashed to half of what their spawn rates used to be — though tarantula island, one of the most popular ways of farming bells, was already compromised last month thanks to stink bugs.

Granular adjustments like these are common for competitive games, but they’re surprising for a game like Animal Crossing. Then again, when you look at the wider economy, and how common it is for players to have millions upon millions of bells ... perhaps this was unavoidable. But, hey, at least the fish spawn rates are still the same! Stay tuned to z2u.com and we will be the first one to inform you all the latest.
