Raven picking up Arrows2 Likes/14 Replies/603 ViewsOriginal poster Baargoo 2 posts
When I shoot and kill an animal with arrows, the Raven will send me all the Loot. but not the arrows.
Now I have to still go to the dead animal to retrieve my arrows. So the Raven returning loot, but no
arrows, serves no purpose.
If I kill a guard or bandit I will get the arrows back from the Raven. Not sure if the human enemies
will have loot on them and then the arrows are returned. When attacking a fort I am too busy staying
alive, to notice if one or 2 of them have loot on them, and the arrows I am getting back is from one
without loot or 1 with loot.
I believe that what is going on here is quite complicated. Here's a video showing some of it. Power 409, Petra's Arc. I loose an arrow into the environment deliberately to show the 15 limit is not the cause of the lack of looting.
Arrows that hit the environment (or perhaps an enemy shield) stick there and can be retrieved.
Arrows that hit but do not kill an enemy vanish.
Arrows that hit and kill an enemy stick in the body and can be retrieved.
When does Synin appear to auto-loot? Only when a dead guy is determined to be carrying loot, ie, when the silvery glowy thing appears.
What does Synin pick up? Two things. Firstly, anything that's part of the silvery glowy thing, treasure and/or arrows and/or keys. Secondly, IF Synin is close enough to an arrow stuck in the environment then it'll pick it up but this is uncommon.
As a note, if Synin does retrieve an arrow used to kill an enemy as per the previous paragraph then the model of the arrow remains in the body. This model stays permanently even if Eivor runs over it.
Any "environmental" arrow that Eivor gets close to gets picked up (and the model of the arrow disappears).
Thanks for making this Topic
I have the same problem with the "Raven's Loot Skill" (approximative english, sorry)
In my case :
In fact it does only retrieve arrows owned by archers
It doesn't retrieve my arrows when hunting :
It doesn't retrieve my arrows from non-archers... so I disabled this Skill ...
NB: tested with Predator, Hunter and Light bows... same problem with all

Well my title should had been Raven NOT picking up arrows.
Thank you @Ubi-Keo for the explanation on why I got arrows
from some warriors and not others. Yes it's only the archers
that give back arrows they own, not the ones you shot into them.
This makes total sense. Now I am not expecting the Raven to
bring back arrows when I miss the prey (arrows in the ground or trees).
But I am expecting him to bring back any arrow that I shot into
the hide or body along with any loot..
I think you are right too
The thing that "disturb" me (approximative english, sorry) is the fact that when
- I asked in PS4 community some people were saying that their Raven is getting their own arrows (but i'm not confident with their response...)
- I asked in the forum here :
Does your raven loot arrows on dead animals ?
I saw someone saying that is raven does this, but i'm sceptical about this...
I had this response :
even collects fish shot with arrows, not all of them, but sometimes.
but i'm also sceptical about all this response...
Conclusion : I'm pretty sure you are right
Nice day to you
