Tinkers' Construct Wiki



The bolt is a projectile fired by the crossbow. It is made from a bolt core and fletching.


To make a bolt core, place any Arrow Shaft of any type into a casting table, and pour any type of molten metal over it. The poured metal will form the tip of the bolt core. Then, after making a fletching in a part builder, use the tool forge to assemble the finished bolt.

(For FTB Direwolf20 1.10 modpack, place an arrow shaft of any type)


Modifiers can only be applied to the Crossbow, not the bolt. [Note: this may vary depending on your mod pack and version.]

Part Traits

The bolt consists of two different parts, and they both affect the bolt differently. Please note that certain modpacks have implemented their own material re-balances, so the best materials for each part may vary from modpack to modpack. The materials here only reflect the base statistics for Tinkers' Construct. (I will be adding bolt cores soon!) ~Please feel free to edit anything if it changes~


(See Fletching)

Depending on what type of fletching you chose, it will change the durability, breaking chance, and accuracy of the bolts. 

Material Durability modifier Breaking Chance Accuracy
Slime x 1.2 0.5% 75%
Leaf x 1.5 0% 50%
Feather x 1 5% 100%
