Fire Arrows are a type of arrow and tool used for the Bow available at Garrett's disposal in Thief. Powder in the barrel reacts to a triggered spark upon impact creating a small burst of flame that can ignite some flammable materials. It costs 25 gold to purchase.
Interaction with Environment Edit
Fire arrows are like flying matches. They will light up things that are supposed to burn, like candles, wall mounted torches, oil puddles and gas leaks, but not furniture, wooden boxes, houses, or people/animals.
Fire is effective against shadowy things. Two fire arrows can destroy one at normal difficulty. However, with a very limited number of these in Garret's quiver, a player may seek out more efficient uses. Fire arrows would kill anything that is standing in a puddle of oil or near an explosive barrel.
