Arrows/Bolts in Elden Ring are Ammunition for ranged weapons such as Bows and Crossbows. Beast Bone Arrows/Bolts are available through Crafting while specialty ammunition is purchased from Merchants or found in limited supply. This page covers their names, type, attack power, and passives.

It is generally agreed that, for players exclusively using ranged weapons, it is easier to farm Runes and purchase Arrows/Bolts directly instead of purchasing Materials to craft them. A list of the merchants they are sold by can be found below.

      It might be important to mention, but all of the great-arrows in the game would shatter your fingers if you actually tried to fire them.

        Considering the time and effort investment of crafting arrows, it makes no sense that they do LESS damage than those sold by merchants. Elden Ring's crafting system is utterly pointless. Buying items from merchants worked fine in every other Soulsborne game. Yet another example of FromSoft making something bigger and more complicated with no regard for its purpose.

            Shame this game doesn't have sleep great arrows, breaks all immersion.
            I should be able to put enemies to (eternal) sleep using my +25 greatbow...

            • We need more Great Bolt types. Also a jump shot for regular crossbows. I understand not reloading mid jump, but the ability just to shoot the loaded projectile. I started using the cannon and pulley crossbow and wow the cannon is amazing when it one shots. Most stuff in weeping/limgrave/Liurnia and atlas gets absolutely wrecked even ng+ with a +25 cannon using the standard crafting bone Great bolts.

                For most purposes, you should not use crafted ammunition because the time+ cost of the materials is too high for their comparative effectiveness (Bone Bolts and BBB are a possible exception depending on how range factors into their effectiveness in a given fight). Crafted ammunition is for when you run out of other ammunition during a long fight with a field boss and don't want to charge into melee to try and finish it off. Instead, you can disengage from combat (without returning to a site of Grace) and then craft fresh stacks of ammunition. In addition to any ammunition you are already carrying (but may have already expended in a long battle), a full load of bones and feathers allows you to craft 3,330 arrows (various types) and 495 BBB's. If you're relying on status effects and can stand the shorter range (such as by riding past on Torrent), you can use the Pulley Crossbow to deliver bone bolts (various types).

                In the early game, Poisonbone Darts can be an effective means of beating some bosses with limited resources.

                  i honestly dont know why greatbows have the worst range out of all the ranged weapons, these are the things youre always getting sniped by from enemies, i remind you.

                    Arrow crafting is ridiculously time consuming. You will farm for them longer than it will take you to use them.

                      Currently playing an Archer character... Man is it annoying as heck.

                      Using Serpent Bow and Lion Greatbow.

                      Swapping arrows is a hassle as there's no easy way to do it, you have to do it in the menu. So while it's technically possible to do rainbow effects with Serpent Bow (Proccing Poison + Scarlet Rot + Frostbite + Bleed spam) it's stupid to try as you'll likely get smacked in the face as you go into the menu, into the equip screen, select an ammo slot, sift through all the various kinds of arrows you have and then pick the one you want...

                      Why Arrows/Greatarrows and Bolts/Greatbolts share inventory slots I have no idea. There's no logical way you can concieve that the SPEAR SIZED great-ammo can ever fit into the regular sized quiver/boltbag. If anything, Greatarrows/Greatbolts would share an inventory space for their SPEAR SIZED ammunition. But even that is a "y tho?" situation.

                      Why you have a limit of carrying only 99 Arrows/Bolts and 30/20 Greatarrows/Greatbolts of each kind beats me. Like, if it's a matter of "How much space they use" then it's laughable given the 99 of 31 other arrow types you can also be holding (As well as hundreds of weapons and armour sets). If it's a matter of "Balance how much you can shoot" well that goes out of the window when you can literally carry up to 3168 arrows if you have 99 of each type which you can "Simply" swap between in combat... So why not just let us hold our entire 999 store of the ammo we actually bothered to farm runes/materials to obtain?

                      • The way arrows work is that they basically add their shown damage values to your bows base damage and are affected by the scaling of your bow. This means that higher base damage arrows can provide a larger damage boost than the difference might make it seem.

                        This additional base damage also adheres to all the usual scaling rules:

                        1. Physical damage on arrows adds to your bows phys damage and in increased by both, your bows str and dex scaling.

                        2. Magic damage from arrows is added to any magic base damage and is fixed unless your bow scales with int. The Horn Bow is the only one that scales with int and its scaling does affect the arrows as well.

                        3. Fire damage from arrows will scale with your fth if your bow has innate fth scaling. Only the Erdtree Bow has this property, although that's not too valuable because you're splitting your damage between phys/holy/fire which is penalized heavily by how defenses work.

                        4. Lightning damage on arrows scales exclusively off your bows dex scaling, just like the lightning affinity on weapons.

                        5. Holy damage scales off faith. Again, this only applies if your bow has innate fth scaling so it's limited to the Erdtree Bow and Erdtree Greatbow.

                        6. Finally the status buildup on arrows scales with arcane if your bow has arc scaling. The Serpent Bow therefore boosts bleed buildup as well.

                        And finally more notes:

                        * Radahns Bow deals additional damage with Radahns Spear arrows. Fairly obvious from the description but worth mentioning because it does NOT show up in the weapons AR (even with Radahns Spear equipped it will have just barely more AR than the regular Greatbow but deal more damage per shot than even a Golem Greatbow)
                        * the Erdtree Bow and Greatbow are pretty bad. They do get scaling on holy and fire arrows but their base damage is so terrible that they'll perform worse than regular bows with those arrows if you have even a tiny bit of str/dex investment. Extremely niche uses cases, especially with how few things are actually weak to holy.
                        * Radahns Rain gets 17 projectiles falling from the sky as opposed to Rain of Arrows' 12. They deal less damage per arrow though and the bonus damage from Radahns Spear does NOT appear to work with the weapon skill, so just for the skill it's strictly better to use Golem Arrows.

                          I wish the Arrows worked like spells and incantations... where each slot is a different arrow so you can switch arrows on the fly.

                            When you unlock the ability to purchase materials for rrows its still less expensive to buy the wood arrows.

                            45 runes per arrow just for the thin bones. Then additional cost for feathers and possible elemental components.

                            Just buy them.

                                Does the effects of bolts and arrows such as bleed arrows/bolts and holy arrows/bolts scale with your faith and arcane?

                                        Mighty shot dwelling arrows from the horn bow got me through a lot of the game. It made being non spell oriented possible and I had so much fun.So many arrows to play with I think a bow only build is extremely doable.
