Infinite Free Arrows Exploit

  1. Find a location where archers are training by firing arrows at targets. Simply pick up the arrows they’ve used to collect your freebies. Wait for the archers to shoot more arrows, if they don’t, wait an hour.
  2. One good location for finding archers is the Thieves Guild Faction Headquarters. Archers in training never use powerful or specialized arrows, but there is a way to duplicate any arrow you want.
  3. Level up your Pickpocket Skill and unlock the Misdirection Perk. You’ll need at least a 70 in the Pickpocket Skill.
  4. Sneak, and steal the equipped arrows from the archers, then place one arrow you want duplicated into each archer’s inventory. The archer will equip the single arrow you’ve given them and fire it infinitely. This will work with any type of arrow.
  5. If the archers ever stop, wait an hor or collect all the arrows in or around the targets. Now, enjoy your ill-begotten gains.

NO U CHEATING IS FOR THE POOR SOULS WHO NEED CONFIDENCE! IT HELPS TO HAVE AN INFINITE SUPPLY OF ARROWS WHEN SHOOTING OR ELSE YOU END UP LOSING ALL YOUR ARROWS AND THEN THE GIANT BI**H SLAPS YOU BACK TO MORROWIND!!! lol

if you bring followers to become blades they will also shoot arrows at targets, they can also be your personal followers. so if you choose one of them to be your follower jsut give them the arrow you want to duplicate and then part ways and let them fire at the targets and collect!

I think the easiest arrow to get is definitely steel, although they do poor damage you can find them anywhere and I didn’t cheat yet I have nearly 9,000 I’m sure the farther you advance in the game the better arrows you will find so there’s no need to cheat

You need level 100 pickpocket skill with the perfect touch perk to be able to take the equipped arrows

You don’t even need the Misdirection perk, so long as you pickpocket them of their arrows BEFORE they equip their bow. Which is harder, but probably not as hard as pickpocketing everyone who ever lived in order to get your skill up to 70.

you can sell the arrows its easy money and theres so many arrows so little worry

@huh…strange the reason it says that is because of how many arrows of that type you have not how many your actually placing

I agree having a big stack of arrows is helpful. But if ur complaining to us cheaters on this website then why were you, really here just to leave a complaint you dont have to hide that you need arrows simple as that. ;] Oh btw I wouldn`t do it with daedric arrows because they will just break on impact so you, will have to keep doing this more and more to maintain a decent arrow supply.

Also if your here for arrows maybe you want armour and wepons duped in order to dupe apparel items get a maneqquin click it give it ur items u wish to dupe dont close the screen wen u giv it the items then go under maneqquins items take it all back leave ur house or sanctuary and go back in uwill then find the maneqquin with all the items u gave and took from him on him again and if u giv him improved items it wont dupe the items tht r improved already it will be its normal self now if its enchented it will giv u another items same as the one with the enchantment and it will still be enchanted.
