Poison arrows are upgraded arrows added by v0.32 update of The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Poison arrows can used with a crafted bow or a modern bow. The poison arrow will apply a damage over time poison effect, plus the original damage of an arrow. The effects do not stack.

Successfully poisoned enemies will get slowed movements and will do less damage for a short time. Poison lasts longer but does smaller damage than burning. If successfully poisoned, enemies skin will turn to green. Several shots may be necessary especially for mutants and strongest cannibals for the poison effect to apply.

They can be collected on dead corpses like regular arrows but their poison effect will be removed, needing the player to poison them again if they wish to.

It doesn't matter what berry or mushroom type you use to make poison arrows, it will create the same arrow regardless. Using bone arrows to craft poison arrows is a waste, it won't increase their damage or poison.

All arrow types can be used to make poison arrows, even modern arrows. However, they will revert back to regular arrows after they are shot.
