Arrows are a Bow’s best friend. In Valheim, they come in many forms that deal different types of damage. Keeping a supply of upgraded arrows will draw on your resources pretty heavily and a dedicated archer is also going to need to be a skilled woodcutter.
Arrows are useless without a Bow.

Elemental arrows deal a small amount of physical damage and primarily inflict elemental damage. You need to pay extra attention when using elemental arrows because there are enemies that will be resistant to the elemental damage. Fire is especially problematic since enemies in water or rainfall will resist your fire damage.

Throughout the mid-game you can craft metal arrows which are a resource-based subcategory of arrows in Valheim. They are relatively expensive since metal is needed for everything else in Valheim. Because of this, we generally recommend against making these arrows.
