— In-game description

The Wooden Arrow is a type of projectile ammunition that is used by the Compound Crossbow in DayZ.

The Wooden Arrow deals moderate damage of 3555 blood, has very low recoil, and when fired, has an audible range of up to 3.3 meters from the shooter's position. The effective range of the arrow is up to 30 meters.

The arrow can kill a player in up to three shots to the body, or one shot to the head, as does all weapons and ammunition in DayZ. It can kill a zombie in up to two shots.

As the Wooden Arrow is fragile, there is a chance of it breaking if it impacts a hard surface such as concrete.

The Wooden Arrow is common ammunition for the Compound Crossbow that has a 4.55% chance of spawning in Residential, Industrial, Farm and Military loot spawns, and special spawn locations such as Churches, Supermarkets and Deer Stands. The spawn chance is equal to 91 out of 2 000.


  • The Wooden Arrow was previously the 'Crossbow Bolt' or 'Steel Bolt'; a harder, more deadly projectile for the crossbow with a damage of 5333 blood.
