Crafting is an important part of surviving in Valheim and you’ll need to collect various materials as you explore. Once you’ve collected various things, you’ll be able to head to a workbench to make some useful tools and weapons. One of the most useful items you’ll find is feathers, which are needed to craft all kinda of arrows in the game. If you’re enjoying the bow, and therefore need more materials, here’s everything you need to know about how to get feathers in Valheim.
While you’ll also find arrows lying around in Valheim’s various biome, you’ll need to craft them regularly to keep your bow topped up. That’s where feathers come in.
How to Get Feathers in Valheim
Thankfully, feathers are quite easy to get your hands on. As you explore the meadows and black forest biomes, you’ll often see them just lying on the ground. That’s because they’re dropped by birds in the game. It happens naturally as you play, so you’ll come across them on the ground quite regularly.
If you’re impatient and don’t want to wait for them to drop naturally, you can shoot birds down with your bow and collect feathers from them. They’ll land on the ground or trees every so often, making them easy to shoot at, so try not to waste arrows firing while they fly around. After all, there’s no point wasting arrows trying to get materials that are used to make… arrows.
We’ve also noticed that you’ll often find feathers in chests when you loot them. If you spot one and you’re short of arrows, crack it open and grab what is inside.
