[Bug] Tier 3 arrows seem too expensive
The aluminum and carbon arrows are too expensive to only get one arrow when crafted. I cant see myself shooting 4 bars of aluminum at at time with a low chance of getting it back. Either make them cheaper or have a single craft produce more arrows.

Higher end arrows, like aluminium and carbon, are insanely overpriced per arrow. We should get about 50 stacks of arrows for the carbon pricing, and 15 - 25 stacks for the aluminium pricing.
I'd honestly like to just see recipes at end game be like they are, but in stacks of 50-100 arrows, not 1 arrow lol =O Carbon is doing like 20 more damage then bone, but takes like 20 minutes longer per arrow to make.
Same with shotgun or rifle ammo. An ingot can easily make 20rds (10 if you wanna be stingy). The thought of clicking away ammo with ZERO chance of a return is to rich.
bone arrow is cheap. tier 2 -tier 3 arrows are very expensive and u only get it back 1 arrow. Rifle with 1 bullet can 1 shot a polar bear. bow with bone arrow to kill wolf and rifle for bears is the best cost/benefit outfit
Completely agree. The cost of rifle and shotgun rounds is too high. The cost should be reduced by creating a larger amount at one time. Balance it maybe by requiring an equal number of gun powder to the rounds that it will make. Maybe 1 iron and 10 gunpowder for 10 rounds.
The aluminum and carbon fiber arrows are far too expensive as well. Carbon fiber anything really. 4 aluminum bars for 1 arrow? Not worth it. Not anywhere near realistic either.
For now, I only use bone arrows because they are cheap enough I can spam them to get the kills and then simply remake them. I did have to craft the rifle rounds for the mammoth kill (took somewhere around 80 rounds to kill him solo), but that is the only reason to craft those rounds because they are just too expensive.
1 bar of any material should be 1 KG weight. How in the world can a rifle cost 46 kg of steel?
Arrows and ammunition cost way too much materials especially since you get only very few of them back. I think that most things that require any kind of metal just need too much of it.

Considering the small amount of materials you find in caves I totally agree on all of the above comments and the post.

The amount of materials and the damage per tier no way matches firearms. While they shouldn't be equal, you can not use bows/xbows in end game / higher tier animals. Especially with xbow, the reload time versus the damage is abysmal. It's almost 6 times the reloading speed. I can't fathom going past the flint "iron ore" arrows.
Agreed. Crafting costs for a lot of things seem very over-tuned, especially arrows.
I've wasted 3 points into high-tier arrows hoping that one set of materials would craft more than one. I gathered materials for a CARBON ARROW and it gave me ONE ARROW after all the tiers of materials I had to craft for it! I was hoping for at least 10, which is still incredibly low as I run around with minimum 50 bone arrows at all times.
Why make high tier arrows at all when I can just have a reliable source of bone arrows at all times! My aim isn't great, guys, and I'm only getting a return of 1 or 2 on the 12 I unloaded into that bear's face. That's basically enough to make 2 fabricators with how much you dump into one expensive high-tier arrow. No thank you.
Zero reason to use high tier arrows with how absurdly expensive they are. Bone / flint is fairly cheap and easy to justify. Greatly reduce the cost of high tier arrows and or make multiples with each craft.
Our archer swears by flint arrows over bone and he makes all our arrows for us. One stack of 50 raw iron and he's set for the mission. We try to hit the exotic vien early in our missions and while the drills are going it's nothing to pop into nearest cave, make a crafting bench, mine some iron and make a bunch of flint arrows from a cave we likely were never going to mine anyway.
Anything above flint is too expensive.

I agree. for me anything above Bone is expensive flint can get away with price but Aluminum and up no, never, imagine i go through the process of making a Carbon arrow and miss or lose the arrow no thank you. They should just 5x them so you get a bundle, the higher tier the more you get. Since the game cant split an ingot then they should be a base ore, or you get more then 1.
