How to Get and Craft Arrows in Sons of the Forest

Currently, there are four different types of arrows capable of working with bows in Sons of the Forest:

  • Stone Arrows
  • 3D Printed Arrows
  • Carbon Fiber Arrows.

While you can craft as many stone arrows as you wish by combining four small rocks, two feathers. and two sticks, you can get the Carbon Fiber Arrows on a wide array of crates all over the island. The 3D Printed Arrows, on the other hand, can be acquired through the 3D Printer. Each Printed Arrow set will feature 5 units and will cost you 50ml of Resin.

To recap, here’s how to get all arrows in Sons of the Forest:

  • Stone Arrows: Craft four small rocks, two feathers. and two sticks.
  • Carbon Fiber Arrows: On boxes and caches all over the island.
  • 3D Printed Arrows: Use the 3D Printer.
