Video: Can You Actually Shoot 10 Arrows at Once?

How many arrows can you shoot at one time?

We’ve all seen TV shows and movies where an archer uses a bow to shoot multiple arrows and hit multiple targets with just one shot.

After seeing a video game trailer where an assassin takes out five bad guys at once with just one shot, Demolition Ranch decided to see if it was really possible.

In typical fashion, he ups the ante to an extreme and possibly dangerous level.

So there you have it. You CAN shoot that many arrows at once, they just won’t all be as accurate as they were in the video game. This experiment kind of takes the wind out of all the movies and video games where the hero uses multiple arrows effectively. It looks like you could get two, maybe three to do some damage, but certainly not like what was shown in the game trailer.

Still, having 10 arrows on your bow at once looks pretty awesome. It’s a shame it didn’t work more effectively.

And to answer Matt’s question, I still think I’d prefer to get hit with one full-force arrow. With multiple arrows come multiple chances to take out your eyes or for one to hit you in the vitals. I’d prefer not to be a human pincushion.
