The Last of Us 2‘s bow is one of the game’s more useful weapons, offering you a way to kill enemies silently and efficiently. Its usefulness hinges on your ability to stay stocked with arrows though, which is why we’re here to walk you through how to get more arrows in The Last of Us 2.
How to Get More Arrows in The Last of Us 2
There are two ways to get more arrows in The Last of Us 2; one which is easier but more time consuming, and one which is faster but harder to pull off.
The first is to craft arrows from the crafting menu. This option will become available right after you obtain the bow, and will require one Binding component and one Blade component. Both components are on the rarer side, but can be found easily enough by scavenging areas thoroughly.
Each time you use this option, you’ll also get two arrows, making it the best way to fully restock your quiver.
How to Retrieve Arrows From Killed Enemies
The other method for getting more arrows is to kill The Last of Us 2’s enemies with headshots.
When you successfully get a headshot with the bow, the arrow you shot will remain intact. You can then go to the enemy’s corpse and retrieve the arrow to add it back to your inventory.
This is easier said than done though. The bow’s aiming sway can make it difficult to land a headshot even with practice, and moving enemies will only increase the difficulty of doing this effectively.
As such, it’s recommended you spend some supplements on the Precision skill tree if you’re intent on using this method, as one of its skills will make landing headshots with the bow easier.
