Overview[edit | edit source]

The Metal Arrow in ARK: Survival Evolved is an advanced arrow fired by the Compound Bow that can pierce armor. Note that Metal Arrows cannot be used in a Bow or Crossbow.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Like other arrows and Spear Bolts, an unbroken Metal Arrow can be retrieved from surfaces, corpse or unconscious creature where it is attached.
  • Does more damage than Longneck Rifle(with Simple Rifle Ammo) and Fabricated Sniper Rifle if fully charged.
  • Metal arrows can be used to full effect against the Rubble Golem, making it useful for cave runs on Scorched Earth.
  • Metal arrows cannot be used to full effect against the regular Rock Elemental, as they suffer the same 90% damage reduction as most physical attacks.
    • Surprisingly useful in PVP, as it pierce through armor that high-end players usually rely on to survive and head shots can be instantly lethal.
