Are you struggling to find arrows in the Tears of the Kingdom? We have you covered in this guide, showing you all the possible best arrow farm in Tears of the Kingdom. With that said, let’s get right into it. 

Key Takeaways

  • Arrows are among the best offense since this game offers the best fusions.
  • You can find arrows in shrines, crates, looting enemies, merchants, stores, and amiibo scans.
  • Crates and chests reset with resources after every Blood Moon reset.
  • You can fuse arrows with multiple materials to enhance their power.
  • Mighty Lynel Bow can be found in the early game, which shoots five arrows simultaneously.

Using a bow and arrow to fight enemies increases your winning chances since you are using a ranged weapon. However, arrows run out fast, which can become a problem. For to avoid this, you must pre-farm many arrows to make your fights better.

As we know, shrines hand out many rewards while completing them. One of these rewards is arrows. While exploring shrines, you will see chests lying around containing resources. Usually, these are x5 or x10 arrows.

Furthermore, two shrines will give you more arrows than the others. These are:

  • Makurukis Shrine – Hyrule Ridge (x=-2846, y=0630, z=0233)
  • Taunhiy Shrine – Hyrule Ridge Sky (x=-2402, y=0825, z=0615)

These both have trials called Archery training and reward you with a strong construct bow. Once you complete these, revisiting them after every Blood Moon reset will give you arrows each time. This means you have an infinite supply of arrows.

Unfortunately, as easy as it may seem, this way can be time-consuming for some people since you will have to wait for the Blood Moon reset. However, there are over 150 shrines in the game, so you will likely find many arrows this way. 

Opening Crates

You will find random wooden crates and barrels across the map. These have a chance of containing arrows in them. They also respawn with new resources after every Blood Moon reset.

We recommend you pick the wooden box using your Ultrahard ability, tilt it once sideways and once upwards to make it fall on the corner, and break in one go. After the crate breaks, you can find the arrows on the ground and collect them.

There are places where you can find many crates stacked in an area. Destroying all these crates and barrels can get you a handful of arrows.

Dodging Arrows From Enemies

During the playthrough of Tears of the Kingdom, players will stumble upon many enemies, attacking them with ranged weapons such as a bow and arrow. Luckily for you, they don’t have such a good aim.

You can dodge their attacks just before they shoot the arrow at you making them miss their shots. They will keep firing at you until it exhausts their supply.  Make sure to collect the arrow on the ground fired at you because they may disappear.

You must dodge the arrows because they can not be collected if you get hit. You can also block these using your shield, which can still be ordered but will damage your shield over time, so we do not recommend this method.

Looting Enemies

Defeating an enemy also allows you to pick up some of the items they had. These may include their weapon or the type of ammunition they used. If you kill the archer of an enemy group, there is a likely chance they will drop arrows.

This method may not grant you many arrow farms, but you can still collect a bunch of free arrows if you kill multiple groups, including their archers.

Similarly, you can also pick up arrows you use in fights. Once the enemy is killed, you must loot back the ammunition you used to defeat them. The combined looting will ensure you a net gain in your arrow supply.

Buying From Merchants And Stores

Purchasing arrows

This is the most straightforward way to get arrows in the game. Merchants and stores are set up in various places over the map, such as Lookout Landing, Rito Village, and Hetano Village.

You can use the in-game currency of rupees to buy an arrow or even a bunch if available. As quick and easy as this method is, it will cost you a lot of money, especially making it tough to do in the early game. So, we recommend using this only if it’s your last resort. 

A bonus tip for stores is that once you purchase all the stocked arrows, go to the rest area and sleep for a day. Come back the next day to find these stores re-stocked with new arrows. This way, you can keep purchasing arrows continuously.

Scanning Amiibo

Another way to farm arrows is through Amiibo scans. When you scan an Amiibo, they will drop crates and chests. It is likely that they also contain arrows for you.  

Fusion Of Arrows

Arrows in this game are mighty since they can handle any situation and fight. Regrettably, you can not craft arrows in this game, as Link can’t. However, you can still fuse these arrows to make them even more robust making it the best arrow farm in Tears of the Kingdom.

 Here are some examples of fusing arrows:

Bomb Flower + Arrow This will create a bomb arrow that can be fired to give light or deal more damage.
Fire Fruit + Arrow  This combination gives you an arrow that can damage enemies, blow up barrels, and helps create an updraft.
Shock Fruit + Arrow This combo allows you to electrocute enemies and stuns them briefly.
Ice Fruit + Arrow Freezes your enemies and slows them down.
Korok Fond + Arrow Sends airwaves to decrease enemy visibility.


The Best Bow In Early Game

Apart from all the possible Tears of the Kingdom best arrow farm, players must also get their hands on a good bow to use them. Being one of the game’s most valuable and practical weapons, you must get this as soon as possible. We will show you how to find this.

The bow can be found in a cave near the Necluda Sea. To reach there, you must:

  • Make your way towards the southeast of the map and find Rabella Wetlands sky view tower in East Necluda.
  • Glide from the towers towards the map’s edge, as shown.
  • Drop down from the cliff near the water.

Inside The Cave

  • You will find a chest with a bow called Mighty Lynel Bow.

This bow will have an attribute that makes it fire five arrows at once while still using one arrow from your armory, increasing your attack power and saving you on arrows.

Bow Attribute

If you do not find the specific attribute, you can travel to the outskirts of Goron City. Here you can find Rock Octorocks, which can change your bow attribute. Some of these spots are labeled as shown.
