Only a madman would willingly carry arrows like this into battle. The chance of hitting friends when trying to damage foes, the chance of accidentally ricocheting an arrow back into oneself, and the chance that the arrows will explode in the quiver... A madman or a berserker, perhaps.

Arrows can be equipped by dragging them over the bow in the inventory.

Dev Notes[]

Explosive Arrows :

Explosive Arrows will detonate gas fields (including those created by Gas arrows or Gas Orbs) and oil fields (made by Tar Arrows and Oil Arrows). Fire Arrows won’t because they are only “fire” in name but not in function. The cost of explosive arrows is very high because it has to match their very high level of power. While it’s true the main function of explosives is PvP, it is not the only function. They do not have to be cost effective in every situation as long as they are in some situations.
