The arrows were objects that were encountered in Alone in the Dark and Alone in the dark 3.

Effects With Bow: Able to defeat possessed Indian painting.

Game(s) Alone in the Dark (1992)

Three Arrows are found in the Forest Room, after searching the plants potted in the base of the statue in the middle of the room.

The Arrow is used in getting through to the Library entrance because the Bow and Arrows are capable of eliminating one of the possessed paintings, which is that of an Indian. The protagonist must fire at the portrait which is on the far side of the Corridor.

Note: You actually don't need the bow to shoot the arrows. Simply throwing a lone arrow at the Indian painting should do the trick.

Alone in the Dark Edit

There is only one arrow in the game.
