Every element of the Hogwarts castle and the whole Hogwarts Legacy seems to be constantly evolving. This is particularly true in the iconic Room of Requirement, which is continually evolving in order to meet the needs of those in need and is also a location where players will find a Golden Snitch.
The Golden Snitch is probably the most famous and tricky ball in the wizarding world's famous Quidditch sport. Qudditich is not played in Hogwarts Legacy, but the appearance of the Golden Snitch has players wondering if they may at least get a Quidditch-related memento.
Here's all you need to know about getting to the Golden Snitch in Hogwarts Legacy's Room of Requirement.

Golden Snitch explained the Hogwarts Legacy Room of Requirement.
Players will encounter a Golden Snitch while going through the debris and exploring the Room of Requirement for the first time. It will glide past them and the main character will wonder aloud whether or not they saw a Golden Snitch.
If you go in the direction where the Golden Snitch zoomed away in, you will be able to hear and see it behind some wooden planks. Because the Golden Snitch is here and because the main character comments on it, it is difficult to know whether or not players should try and acquire it.
Is it possible to obtain the Golden Snitch in the Room of Requirement?
The Golden Snitch isn't an available skill, it's a red herring. It appears to have been created to demonstrate that players might be able to find hidden loot in the area where it remains floating, but it instead confused most players because they believed they were supposed to capture it rather than obtain the loot near it.
While it's disappointing that you can't catch a Golden Snitch, you can still obtain the reward it is attempting to reveal. The area the Golden Snitch is flying in is no longer accessible, but players may use a spell to summon the stacked chests sitting right beneath it.
How to Get the Golden Snitch chest in the Room of Requirement
After the Golden Snitch flew by, the nearby painting made a joke about what players need to do next, which is to aim Accio toward the stacked chests, then players can release the Accio spell and interact with the chests to obtain a random gear piece.
