Arrows are a type of ammunition used with bows. They are craftable by players using the Fletching skill. To do that, players must have some arrowshafts (cut from normal logs), feathers and arrowheads. The arrow made is determined by the type of arrowheads used.

Arrows have a chance of breaking after being fired, losing the arrow. According to Roddeck, if the arrow has been broken, the arrow will not appear on the ground to be picked up. The chance of losing an arrow after shooting is approximately 20%, but this decreases gradually with an increase in the player's Ranged level.

One method of preventing losing dropped arrows is to use Ava's device, which collects dropped arrows. This requires the player to have completed the Animal Magnetism quest.

Arrow damage

Arrows may be used with bows that are lower level than themselves, but their damage will be capped at the bow's level[1]. For example, if one were to use level 60 dragon arrows with the level 40 yew shortbow, the arrows would perform as a level 40 arrow because the bow is level 40.
