Enshrouded: All Arrows and How to Get Them

Craftspeople and Survivors Map in Enshrouded

There are many different types of arrows you can choose from in Enshrouded, and you can collect all types by either looting them from chests or by crafting them after finding the Hunter. When you begin the game, however, the Hunter isn’t immediately available. You’ll only be able to craft the very basic Wooden Arrows out of twigs you collect in the world. Moreover, you’ll be able to find some basic arrows types as loot out in the world. When you’re out exploring be sure to check every chest, loot dead enemies, harvest plants, and cut down trees. You’ll find new arrow types along the way, as well as the materials to craft new ones with.

Once you find the Hunter and place her in a sheltered area of your base, you can begin to craft better arrows. Additionally, you’ll also want to complete her personal quests, which will open up new arrow recipe options and grant you access to crafting more powerful projectiles.

Standard Arrows

Enshrouded Twigs common material

Standard Arrows are those that deal a set amount of basic damage, sometimes enhanced with poison, that can be found in chests/enemy loot, and also crafted by the player. Moreover, as the damage number rises, so does the amount of materials needed. In many cases, some of the more powerful standard arrows cannot be crafted until you reach later areas of the overland world where the needed resources are located.

Twigs will be a base component of all arrows, and these can easily be found all over the world by cutting down trees or harvesting bushes. Secondly, a stone or later metal material is often required. Lastly, many of the later game arrows will require Feathers. These can be taken from defeated Vukah beasts, chickens, and other flying creatures.

Wooden Arrows

Wooden Arrows are the most basic range projectiles in Enshrouded and the first type of arrows you will have access to when you begin the game. They are very easy to craft on your own, only requiring three Twigs to make. Wooden arrows won’t do a lot of damage, but are great to have on hand to shoot down bee hives from a distance so that you can loot the Wax and Honey.

Here are all the features of Wooden Arrows in Enshrouded:

  • Damage: 6
  • Damage Type: Piercing
  • Rarity: Common

Enshrouded-Where to Find Metal Scraps

To get Scrap Arrows in Enshrouded you will need to either craft them with the Hunter, or find them in chests/loot them from enemies. However, crafting Scrap Arrows can be undesirable in the early game. Metal Scraps can be more difficult to come by, and are typically only found in Scavanger Camps and looted from Scavanger enemies. Consequently, you’re probably going to want to save them for things like tool upgrades, crafting stronger armor, and generating Metal Sheets.

Here is a list of all the materials needed to craft 50 Scrap Arrows with the Hunter:

  • 20 Twigs
  • 10 Metal Scraps

Copper Arrows

Follow the steps in your journal and marked location on the map and you’ll eventually be able to create a Smelter.

Enshrouded Enshrouded Bronze Arrow recipe tooltip

Bronze Arrows don’t offer much more collective damage over the Fossilized Bone arrows, although their damage is all focused in Piercing. The other problem is that crafting the needed Bronze Bars to make these arrows is a multi-step process that requires several other resources such as Tin, Wood Acid, and Copper Ore/Bars. Consequently, you’re actually better off not wasting any of your precious Bronze Bars on these arrows. Keep using Fossilized Arrows and wait until you can craft Iron Arrows in the next region.
