Even though Zelda Tears of the Kingdom will put many melee weapons before you and they will be the main focus of the game, the bow and arrow shouldn’t be neglected. The ranged weapon can be quite handy in many situations and by fusing your arrows with powerful items you can have a pretty strong solution for many challenging enemies.

However, since it’s a ranged weapon it means that its projectiles are limited. Due to this, many have asked themselves what is the best way of getting more arrows and if they could craft some so they are always well supplied. Dive in and discover what we’ve found out when it comes to potential arrow crafting and arrow collecting in Tears of the Kingdom.

Is Arrow Crafting Possible in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom?

Sadly, crafting arrows isn’t available in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom. Just like in its prequel, Breath of the Wild, the game here doesn’t allow you to craft your own arrows. You can still fuse regular arrows with various items you find to make them stronger, but you can’t craft a normal arrow yourself.

Still, not being able to craft arrows doesn’t mean that you will have a hard time finding them. As soon as you get your bow you will start seeing arrows around you in the open world of Tears of the Kingdom. They will drop from random chests, pots, and defeated enemies. In case you shoot a (regular) arrow at an enemy and you miss, you are able to pick it up again and use it. Furthermore, you will always be able to buy them from merchants that you can find all over the map.

How Can You Quickly Get a Lot of Arrows in Tears of the Kingdom?

There are some tips that can help you farm arrows faster if you are in dire need of more than a handful of them. The trick is to visit your closest merchant, buy off all the arrows he has with Rupees, go to another area, and take a rest so some time passes in the game. After a day or so has passed in-game, go back to the same merchant and you will see that he has now restocked with more arrows.

You can perform this trick numerous times so you can essentially get unlimited arrows as long as you have the money for them.
