The Bow is one of the best weapons to use for ranged combat in Sons of the Forest, but what’s a Bow without Arrows? How do you craft Arrows in Sons of the Forest? Thankfully, crafting Arrows isn’t nearly as difficult as finding the Shovel or any of the other well-hidden tools in the game.
Sons of the Forest can feel punishing when it comes to its ammo reserves. Unless you’re willing to spend time duplicating ammo and other resources, the Bow and Arrow make a great choice for anyone looking to engage with enemies at a distance. Arrows are easy to make and deal enough damage to take out most monsters and large cannibals. While you may have come across the Carbon Fiber Arrows in the open world, they’re in even shorter supply than Pistol ammo. Don’t worry, we’re here to tell you exactly how to make Arrows in Sons of the Forest.
How to Craft Arrows in Sons of the Forest
Crafting Arrows is fairly straightforward. All you need to make Arrows is 2 Feathers, 2 Sticks, and 4 Small Rocks. Finding these items is easy: For Feathers, you need to find any type of bird you can, be it a blue bird or a seagull, and kill it with your weapon of choice. When killed, birds will drop between 3-5 Feathers. Sticks and Small Rocks are littered all over the island and will respawn occasionally, but searching for Small Rocks near streams and lakes may yield better results in a pinch. If you’re short on Sticks, chopping down saplings can cause Sticks to drop, too.
Once you’ve collected enough resources, you can open your inventory with the “I” key. From here, right-click on 2 Feathers, 2 Sticks, and 4 Small Rocks, then right-click on the cogwheel. There you go, you’ve made Stone Arrows!
Another way to make Arrows in Sons of the Forest is to use a 3D Printer and 50ml of Printer Resin. Having more than one option for crafting Arrows is a great addition to the game, and the Printed Arrows seem to be a bit more consistent in combat, but the convenience of crafting the Stone Arrows means that you’ll never go into combat without a great, medium-ranged option.
There you have it, everything you need to know about how to craft Arrows in Sons of the Forest!
