How to make arrows in Minecraft

In a Nutshell:


To make arrows, open the crafting table GUI consisting the 3x3 grid. Place a stick in the center of the grid, then place a flint directly above, and a feather directly below. Now that the arrows have been made, simply click the arrows and drag it into your inventory.


Arrows in Minecraft were added in the 0.15.0 update and primarily act as ammunition for bows, crossbows and dispensers. They can be modified to apply effects on players and mobs via the use of lingering potions to create “tipped arrows”. Arrows are also a critical tool for fighting the ender dragon.


You’re also able to obtain arrows from killing skeletons, but this guide primarily explains how to make them yourself!

FAQs on Arrows


Q. Which weapons shoot arrows?


Both bows and crossbows are weapons that are able to take arrows as ammunition. Alternatively, arrows can be shot directly from dispensers; this is commonly seen in automated trap designs.


Q. How much damage do arrows do in Minecraft?


The damage the arrows do depends on how long you charge the bow for. For example, if you charge a bow for 0.1 seconds it will deal half a heart of damage, if you charge the bow for 0.2 - 0.9 seconds it will deal 3 hearts of damage and if you charge the bow for 1+ seconds it will deal between 4 and 5 hearts of damage; this is due to the additional chance of a critical hit.

Conclusion


Arrows in Minecraft are needed for using a bow, crossbow or dispenser. They are also very vital to core gameplay mechanics due the fact you will need a bow of some sort with arrows to beat the ender dragon. Additionally, you’re able to make arrows into tipped arrows which allow application of different potion effects, thus providing a significant boost in both power and utility.
