The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Archery


Adult and Teen sims will be able to complete the archery hobby using the targets in the castle grounds once you complete the Royal Lineage Quest.

There are 2 targets so two sims can complete this hobby at one time, once you have completed the quest click on one of the targets and select:

  • Practice Archery- 7 hours 30 minutes


After the time has passed come back and click the exclamation mark above your sims head to find one of the archery shot collectibles. Every time your sim practices archery your sims hobby skill level up percentage will increase, once you reach 100% you will level up, there are 6 levels. You need to reach level 6 to be able to unlock all of the archery shot collectibles, once unlocked you will be able to find them.

The table below shows the level up percentage:

This may change in future updates

 LEVEL  Practice Archery
1-2 50%
2-3 25%
3-4 25%
4-5 12%
5-6 12%

For example you would have to practice archery 4 times to reach level 5 from level 4

The next table shows you for each level what archery shot collectibles you unlock (so you can then find those ones too) and also the level up reward that a second and future sims will receive when they level up in this hobby:

1 Public Hazard Misfire and Peg Leg are unlocked in the hobby collection
2 Wonky Shooter On the Board and Eye on the Prize are now unlocked in the hobby collection 250XP
3 Hit and Miss Snake Eyes and Middle Master are now unlocked in the hobby collection 500XP
4 Hot Shot Triple Threat and Three’s Company are now unlocked in the hobby collection S750
5 Bullseye Hero Sure Shot and Divisive Hit are now unlocked in the hobby collection 10,000 Town Value
6 The Chosen One Side Splitter and Sherwood’s Finest are now unlocked in the hobby collection.

You can now complete the collection!


NOTE: only the first sim completing this hobby needs to get to level 6 to unlock all the collectibles, future sims will be able to find any collectible even if they are only on level 1 in this hobby!

You won’t find a new collectible each time, you will get repeats, if this happens just keep going, you will find them eventually! If it is still taking too long you can use the lucky spin on the row where you cannot find the item, this will cost LPs, when you click on the LP button it will clear the row and give you a random collectible on that row so you aren’t guaranteed a new item (you will get back any other collectibles you already had in that row) Need to earn some LPs to use the lucky spin?


The completed archery collection is shown below, once you complete the collection you need to click ‘start a new collection’ at the top of the hobby collection screen, this clears the board so you can complete the collection again to earn more rewards (you will only get the option to restart the hobby collection when you have completed the collection):

The first time you complete a row you will unlock one of the statues in the garden, you need to complete the collection and build all 4 statues to be able to open the Castleto complete the collection you need to find all 12 of the collectibles. After the first time you will earn XPs when you complete a row in the collection.

The Statues:

  1. First row unlocks the Archers statue which costs S35,000 and takes 4 hours to build
  2. Second row unlocks the Jesters statue which costs S50,000 and takes 6 hours to build
  3. Third row unlocks the statue of the Prince which costs S75,000 and takes 8 hours to build
  4. Fourth row unlocks the statue of the Princess which costs S125,000 and takes 10 hours to build


  • Once you have built all the statues you will unlock the gallery which costs S200,000, once built you will be able to enter the castle and begin the Jester Hobby
  • From the second time onwards each time you complete the collection you will earn 5LP

  1. This is taking me forever lol…. I’ve been switching sims so that they can be productive working… And i still need

      • So I have been doing the archey hobby for one day.I used my lps and both of my sims are on leveI 6 . I completed the archey collection but the statues are not there for me to build. What should I do?

      • You’ve definitely completed the collection? As you will only be able to build the statues once you have unlocked all 3 hobby collectibles for that row, if you have already have you tried clicking where the statues should be

  2. I too have been working on the archery collection for at least two months now, my first set of sims actually aged to seniors and then died while trying to complete this. This game is no longer fun, just repetitive and boring and disappointing and now even depressing with the sims dying.

    • It is now five months going on this, I have had at least four sims age to death doing it and the last statue is still not built because I cannot get the last archery award. As I have stated above, this game has gotten really bad, tasks take forever, as in multiple Sim lifetimes which makes gameplay boring and tedious and depressing.

  3. None of my teens or adults can open section three of the garden archery section. I’ve been at it for months and nothing! What am I doing wrong?
