Subscribe to download Explosive Arrows- Fire, Ice, and Shock

Adds the ability to make area-of-effect, explode-on-hit arrows of fire, ice, and shock varieties. You can make them in batches of 25 at the forge with 25 steel arrows and a fire, frost, or void salt, respectively.

The arrows themselves have very low damage- only 10 damage- but the resulting explosions are very powerful, so a direct hit will almost always be fatal. The farther the hit, the less effect it will have.

They also throw actors and items into the air like ragdolls :D

They'll even knock a flying dragon out of the air.

I understand this has been done before, but I really want to learn more about the Creation Kit.

On my to-do list:
Make poison-explosion arrows
Make Thu'um arrows- Throw Voice, Unrelenting Force, etc.

I actually don't have Dawnguard, and I'm not very likely to get it, so I'd have to put off making explosive bolts until I end up getting the expansion.

Of course, you can already make exploding bolts in Dawnguard, but they are rather weak compared to your arrows! More powerful exploding bolts could be nice.

If you ever do any more mods for skyrim, one just like this for crossbow bolts would be perfect!

I've tried several exploding arrow mods, and your's is the best I've tried - a good balance between power, and ease of crafting (the inferno arrows from the atomic arrow mod are more powerful, but use one firesalt per SINGLE arrow. All the other exploding arrow mods I tried had wimpy explosions. Lastly, being thrown by my own arrow exploding too close was cool - with all the all other mods, being caught in your own explosion had no effect - BORING!). Best of the bunch - good job!!

Cool mod. Took me a few too many times to remember to stand AWAY from my target before shooting, but hey, it was a hilarious learning experience. Do you think you could bring some of this to Crossbow bolts?
note: sorry if it already exists and this comment seems lazy for not looking :/

I think I figured out the issue with the ice arrows! Apparently, I had forgotten to change the created object to ice arrows, so it was basically saying there was a second recipe for fire arrows, and the game didn't like this. Along with now supporting Lightning Arrows, I have fixed that. Kony, you should now be able to create ice arrows.

I'm so glad you enjoy it!

Wow, thank you so much for this mod. I killed a dragon with three arrows (with the help of some guards of course ;D). This is by far one of the coolest mods ever, and it makes me laugh because of that moment's pause right before it blows them up.

I've tried to make a merchant- believe me, I've tried. I can never get the dialogue to work right. I after I found that out, I decided that, because these are a specialty item, the frost/fire salt ingredients are good to prevent them from becoming world-breaking.
