How To Craft Arrows & Cartridges

Introduction

There are two weapons in New World that require projectiles: Bow and Musket. The Bow requires arrows and the Musket requires cartridges, both of which are crafted at the Workshop found in a settlement. Both kinds of projectiles can be found in supply crates throughout Aeternum but it is highly recommended that they are crafted with the required crafting materials. This guide will explain to the player how to craft arrows and cartridges as well as the different kinds of projectiles that can be crafted.

Arrows

In New World, arrows are the required projectiles to use the Bow weapon. All types of arrows require feathers and the required type of ingot and wood; however, there is one exception: Flint Arrows. Flint arrows are the only arrows that can be crafted at both the Workshop and any camp, and only require x5 Flint, x2 Green Wood, and x3 Feathers. Since any arrow type can be used for any level Bow, Flint Arrows will come in handy when the player runs out of arrows and can’t make it back to a settlement quickly. While crafting arrows, keep in mind that the required materials will produce x50 arrows at a time. The various levels of arrows are as follows:

1. Flint Arrow:

Flint Arrows modify the damage with a Bow by x1.0 and require lvl 0 Engineering

2. Iron Arrow:

Iron Arrows modify the damage with a Bow by x1.05 and require lvl 0 Engineering.

3. Steel Arrow:

Steel Arrows modify the damage with a Bow by x1.1 and require lvl 50 Engineering.

4. Starmetal Arrow:

Starmetal Arrows modify the damage with a Bow by x1.15 and require lvl 100 Engineering.

5. Orichalcum Arrow:

Orichalcum Arrows modify the damage with a Bow by x1.2 and require lvl 150 Engineering.

Cartridges

In New World, cartridges are the required projectiles to use the Musket weapon. All types of cartridges require gunpowder and the required type of ingot and cloth. As a player begins their journey in Aeternum, they will begin to gather a lot of Iron Cartridges very quickly by looting chests. While crafting cartridges, keep in mind that the required materials will produce x50 cartridges at a time. The various levels of cartridges are as follows:

1. Iron Cartridge:

Iron Cartridges modify the damage with a Musket by x1.0 and require lvl 0 Engineering.

2. Steel Cartridge:

Steel Cartridges modify the damage with a Musket by x1.066 and require lvl 50 Engineering.

3. Starmetal Cartridge:

Starmetal Cartridges modify the damage with a Musket by x1.132 and require lvl 100 Engineering.

4. Orichalcum Cartridge:

Orichalcum Cartridges modify the damage with a Musket by x1.2 and require lvl 150 Engineering.

Conclusion

It is important to note that a player may never actually craft an arrow or cartridge as they can be found and bought from the Trading Post. Although the Musket and Bow are the only two weapons in New World that require a projectile to use, they can be very rewarding and enjoyable.
