Also known as
50 with Quiver
Modern arrows are non craftable arrows that can be found deep in caves or from yellow crates. The crates are visually identical to the cases that flares are stored in. If you load a pre-v0.71 save file and have already opened these cases, the game will replace the already opened flare crates with unopened modern arrow crates, assuming the case doesn't stay as a flare case. The Modern Bow location has quite a few modern arrows; there is a yellow crate with one and there are some on a box right next to the Modern Bow itself. At the time of release, the developers stated in the patch notes that modern arrows are best used with the Modern Bow. It can be assumed that they said this because the combined stats of the modern bow and modern arrow currently provide the highest damage possible per bow shot (not counting poison/fire upgraded arrows).
On the PlayStation 4 version, the player must look down and press
R1 to change between arrow types, including modern arrows.
These are the current known locations with The Forest Map links:
- 1 Yellow Crate close to the cockpit / 10 arrows
- 2 Yellow Crates up on the small cliff by the river / 20 arrows
- 6 Yellow Crates at the Film Crew Camp / 60 arrows
- Modern Axe location / 5 arrows
- Modern Bow location / 20 arrows
- 1 Yellow Crate in Cave 6 between the mutant and the water / 10 arrows
Modern 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.
- It is possible to shoot 2 arrows at once by pressing
Left Mouse Buttonvery fast after releasing first arrow.
- If used to craft fire arrows or poison arrows, modern arrows will turn into normal fire arrows, and when retrieved from an enemy's corpse will revert into normal arrows.
