In Red Dead Redemption 2 you can make poison arrows. Creating poisoned arrows through crafting is very simple, in fact, the ingredients for poisoned arrows are quite easy to find. The problem is that even if you have what you need, you can't create poisonous arrows without the recipe. That being the case, our guide will show you how to make them and how to get the necessary recipe to start making these very important items both in hunting and fighting against humans.
How to create poisoned arrows in RDR2
To create poisoned arrows in Red Dead Redemption 2, you'll need three ingredients:
- An arrow
- A feather
- An oleander plant
You can get feathers by simply searching and "skinning" birds. Arrows are available from virtually any gunsmith or emporium. As for the Oleander plant, you'll have to search the ground for it. For example, you can cross the river west of St. Denis, near Calliga Hall, to the east, and search in that area.
Before you rush out to gather the necessary ingredients, there's something we need to mention. Even if you know exactly what ingredients you need, you won't be able to make the arrows until you get the corresponding recipe. It can be a bit annoying, but you can live with it, and the protagonist of RDR2 doesn't read guides on the internet, so he has to find the recipes first. Let's see how to get the poisonous arrows recipe in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Where to find the poison arrows recipe
To get the poisonous arrows recipe in Red Dead Redemption 2, you'll need to buy it. Our recommendation is to go to Fence, who has pretty much everything you can imagine in his inventory. Fence is the seller in the south of Emerald Ranch, southwest of Emerald Station. You'll get to Fence's location by simply following the main missions of the story. Once you reach Fence, all you have to do is scroll through his goods until you get to what you need - the poisonous arrow recipe. We must point out that the pamphlet is quite expensive. You'll have to shell out 58 bucks. It's not a favorable price, but in the Wild West a poison arrow can make all the difference.
