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!
First, you will need a crafting table. If you're at all unsure as to how to make one, check out this guide.
These will be the materials you will need to combine in a crafting table:
Here is the step-by-step pictorial guide you need to follow to make an arrow in minecraft:
Step 1.) You will need to break a tree and obtain wood, which you will then craft into sticks.
Step 2.) You will need to find gravel to dig up, which when broken has a chance of giving you flint.
This metallic looking block is what gravel is.
Once the gravel is broken, you have a chance of getting a flint which looks like this.
Step 3.) You will need to obtain a feather. To do so, you need to slay a chicken.
Chickens drop Raw Chicken and a Feather upon death.
Step 4.) Finally, you will have to combine all of these items in a crafting table to make an arrow.
Step 5.) Once your arrow is created, simply drag it out of the crafting table menu and into your own inventory.
Tipped Arrows can be crafted easily via surrounding the appropriate lingering potion with arrows in a regular crafting table menu.
For example, to craft an arrow of Poison, simply surround a lingering poison potion with arrows as such:
To make any other tipped arrow variant, simply switch the lingering potion type!
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.
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.
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.
