Arrows are projectile weapons launched with bows in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. Crossbows fire bolts. Firing arrows is governed by the Marksman skills. Arrows stack in the inventory and must be equipped. Damage inflicted by arrows increases with each level in Marksman, with the bow used, and with the arrow type. Arrow types range from Iron to Daedric, spanning from weakest and strongest respectively.
Arrows are required in order to deal damage with a bow and cannot be fired underwater. Arrows can occasionally be recovered when looting the corpse of enemies shot with a bow.
Generic arrows are the most commonly found arrows.
