If you you give poisoned bows to an NPC, do the poisoned arrows ever run out?

    not exactly a duplicate, this question's asking if an already poisoned weapon will wear out if a companion uses it rather than if a companion will use poisons from the inventory

  • Thanks yeah, since they never run out of arrows, I was wondering if I found poison for the weapon, if it would always be poisoned for the npc that was using it... but now I know it works the same as if the main character had it.

  • The first part was pretty much a duplicate, so I removed it and left the portion about the poison not running out. Feel free to reword if you can improve it. I can't retract my close vote that I can see. Jan 16, 2012 at 16:54

Yes, you can give poisoned bows (or any other weapon) to your followers. They will use them to attack, but the poison wears off after 1 hit just like your own weapons.

  • Ah.. I see I noticed that whatever arrows you give them they use infinitely, was wondering if they use poisoned infinitely Thanks I understand now
