A silver arrow is a type of projectile that appears in NetHack. It is naturally made of silver.


General stores, used armor dealerships and antique weapon outlets can sell silver arrows.


Silver arrows can clear a five-lane highway through silver hating monsters, but unfortunately, they are fairly rare—only twelve in a thousand randomly spawned weapons will be silver arrows. Fortunately, however, with maximized Luck even a small stack can last a fairly long time.


Prior to version 3.6.0,wielding a silver arrow and stabbing monsters with it did not do silver damage. Nor did throwing the arrow. Only shooting the arrow with a bow dealt silver damage. This was considered a bug by the DevTeam, and it was fixed.
