|When lit, will set creatures on fire|
50 with Quiver
Fire arrows can be lit using the lighter or Standing Fire, and will light struck targets on fire, giving the target burning damage. This will cause the target to flail for several seconds, ignoring the player and allowing you to deal with other enemies. The Fire arrow will stay lit until the player shoots the bow or puts it away. After the target is dead, the player can then collect the arrow from the dead corpse, though it will no longer be a Fire arrow, but instead just a regular one.
The light emitted by the fire arrow when lit is detectable by enemies.
On the PlayStation 4 version, the player must look down and press
R1 to change between arrow types, including fire arrows.
Fire arrows can also be lit by drawing back the bow, and placing the tip of the arrow over a lit Standing Fire.
Fire Arrows can be stored in:
Additional arrow storage can be achieved by making a Quiver, this will increase the carrying capacity from 30 to 50.
- Fire arrows can bounce along the ground in caves and in the sinkhole, ricocheting on mad courses.
- It is possible to shoot 2 arrows at once by pressing
Left Mouse Buttonvery fast after releasing first arrow.
