Crafting Fire Arrows problem (Shadow of the Tomb Raider PC)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I cannot make a fire arrows in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, when I hold right mouse button and click middle mouse button then Lara checks her back and she cannot take anything, but I already have one arrow but the fire arrow is zero.

Here is a YouTube video that I want to do but I cannot do, the fire arrows was 0 and it becomes 1https://youtu.be/kdH5nrgl7-I?t=6844

I already have arrow, cloth and that thing like an oil. But I don't know how to have a Silent Arrow? Please help, I'm stuck at 11%. I have already restarted the whole game to try to have the needed things but I sill not have them. The first image below is a screenshot from the YouTube video (I have all of them, except the fire arrow is 0).

If I understand correctly, you do not know how to make silent arrows.

I do not know the PC buttons but on Xbox holding RB makes special arrows (fire arrows in your case) and RT makes silent arrows.

I believe on PC it's the same idea - hold the "shoot arrow" button and Lara makes silent arrows.

Hi, it seems a bug for me because everyone explains it simply like hold Right Mouse Button and click Middle Mouse Button, they explain simply like that but it doesn't work for me. When I do it then Lara checks her back and she cannot take a fire arrow.

I believe that it's kind of bug, I mean imperfection of the game that people can be stuck. According to the second image in my first post, the fire arrow requires a SILENT ARROW, CLOTH and a FAT. But what is a FAT, please?

What kind of skill do I need? I thought that this kind of bug is famous because I restarted the game and always have the same problem, should I restart the game and play it with Normal Difficulty? But I played it with Easy difficulty because I wanted to have the maximum resource.
Which of these skills below should I use? For example 4th row, and 10th column looks like a fire arrow but it's a Viper's Lure. Please help, how did people do to achieve this famous game?

The game tip says: Weapons can be upgraded at camp fire using resource. But what kind of upgrade should I do?

Hi, @manda3d. Welcome to the forums. :)

When you hold the right mouse button, Lara aims the weapon she currently has equipped. If you then press left mouse, she fires normal ammo. If you hold the right mouse button and press the middle button, she fires special arrows/ammo. In order to craft ammo, you need to have the weapon equipped but NOT hold Aim (right mouse). Just press and hold the left mouse button without aiming to craft normal arrows or press and hold the middle mouse button without aiming to craft fire arrows. Of course, you need to have the necessary resources in your inventory or Lara won't do anything.

Lara has the skill to craft fire arrows at the beginning of the game. You don't need to unlock it. Later, when you unlock the skills that let you craft special ammo for the pistol, rifle, and shotgun, you'll do the same thing: Select the gun, but don't hold Aim. Just hold middle mouse to craft special ammo. Then to shoot that special ammo, hold Aim and press middle mouse.

Just to further complicate things, if you have a mouse with a wheel, spinning it cycles through the available weapons, so things can get messy if you're trying to shoot special ammo and accidentally spin the wheel and change weapons. If that bugs you, you can go into Options > Key Mapping, scroll down to the options for Next Weapon and Previous Weapon, then click on the mouse wheel icons and replace them with a different key. I usually play with a controller, but that makes a HUGE difference for me if I do play with keyboard and mouse.

Good luck!

Hi, thank you so much very much, I'm so happy because it works :)

The solution was: I hold the Middle Mouse Button (without aiming, without holding Right Mouse Button) until the Fire Arrows becomes +1.

You're welcome! I'm glad it worked for you. I probably added too much info about the other weapons, etc., but hopefully that'll be useful when you get to that point in the game.

I remapped AIM to the left ALT button but kept the middle button for making fire/crazy arrows, as pressing the right mouse button and middle button at the same time was almost impossible.

Yeah, that sounds good. I swear these games are designed for controllers and the keyboard controls are just tacked on as an afterthought. I don't think they realize how cumbersome and finger-twisting all this can be.
