How to Make Arrows in Old School RuneScape

Making arrows in Old School RuneScape can be done through training in the Fletching skill.

The process itself is the same for all of them, but the different types of arrow you can make is based on what your Fletching level is.

For the simplicity of this guide, I am going to avoid discussing the entirety of the Fletching skill and only talk about arrow making and which arrows are available to fletch.

Making Arrows

To make an arrow, you start by putting Feathers on Arrow shafts.

Feathers can be obtained through hundreds of natural sources (killing chickens, fishing shops, etc.) while Arrow shafts can be made by using a knife on logs.

Once you do so, you will end up with Headless arrows.

Then, you just need to put Arrowtips on the Unfinished arrow to complete the process.

Arrowtips can be made by smithing bars on an anvil or by killing certain monsters.

All these items can also be bought from the Grand Exchange.

Different Arrows to Fletch

There are multiple arrows to fletch at different levels.

This incentivizes Ironman accounts to train Fletching so they can naturally make the strongest arrows on their own without having to buy them from a shop.

Fletching arrows also provide a decent amount of Fletching experience per hour without much cost.

In short, making arrows is an easy and straightforward process.

Fletching overall is a fantastic skill for players to investigate (especially Ironman accounts) because of how it allows players to make their own ranged ammunition and arsenal!

That is how you make arrows in Old School RuneScape!
