I started up a game as a bow hunter but I can’t seem to reload the modern bow with the carbon arrows. I’ve tried unloading, reloading from menu, and part reloading but have met with only minimal success. The only thing that seems to even register as ammo (e.g. have the “reload with what” prompt) is the part reload.
I think I know what’s probably causing this however, since this item is “unloaded” its assuming that only wooden arrows can fit, and refusing to take anything else.
I had this same kind of trouble earlier with reloading a 9mm with it refusing to accept anything jhf bullets in the magazine, even though I had less damaging ammo that was acceptable in my inventory. Unloading the magazine from the gun and emptying it of the jhf and then reloading it with a different type fixed the problem.
However since the recurve bow has no “magazine” I can’t do this workaround. I have yet to try loading wooden arrows and unloading them since i’m not in a safe place to craft them.
