Main article: Iron Weapons (Skyrim)

Iron Arrows are arrows found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Iron arrows have wooden shafts, iron arrowheads and red fletchings. The quiver is made from crude leather.



With the addition of The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard, iron arrows can be created at a forge by using an iron ingot and firewood to create 24 arrows.

  • In The Elder Scrolls V: Hearthfire, placing iron arrows in the Dragonborn's house's cupboard may render them unable to be retrieved, causing them to be stuck in the cupboard. This does not seem to happen with other arrow types.
