  • It is best to use these arrows when hunting animals due to cost
  • These arrows do the least amount of damage out all the arrows, though they are the cheapest to make
  • It is better to use these arrows for fire or poison arrows rather than the bone arrows as bone arrows convert to normal arrows if they are changed

  • Bone arrows do 40% more damage than normal arrows
  • If Bone arrows are used to make fire or poison arrows, they will convert to normal arrows. Avoid doing this as it wastes the bones
  • Bone arrows can be collected after shot, it will say 'arrow collected' rather than 'bone arrow collected'. Though you will pick up a bone arrow

  • After combining the arrow with booze (they will appear dark red in your inventory), press and hold L to ignite the arrow
  • Shooting a cannibal with the arrow sets it on fire
  • Arrows pass through cannibals allowing you to burn several at the same time
  • The flaming arrow resting in the bow provides a source of light which doesn't go out, though the light source will make you visible to enemies
  • Fire arrows can be collected after shot, though they will turn back into normal arrows
  • Fire damage on enemies doesn't stack, wait until they are not on fire before setting them on fire again
  • Adding multiple booze and cloth to fire arrows does not increase their burn length or damage, it will waste the materials
  • Shooting a live rabbit with a fire arrow that has been lit will burn its skin off but it cooks it at the same time, allowing you to eat it straight away
  • Enemies on hard take far less fire damage, keep this in mind
