Agreed, also we should be able to loot sticks/metal rods from junkpiles. Rocks from stone walls and maybe table legs or something from interior clutter. It'd be nice if a weapon was always for the most part a jog away.

an old makeshift way of making arrows back in the day was using bottle caps off drinks and bend them around a stick to make a point and fire them with a bow made from a solid stick with fishing line tied to both ends.

so perhaps have it where you can use a draw knife to shape an arrow shaft then use bottle caps to turn it into a makeshift arrow. If you hunt down some birds and get some feathers then you can combine the feathers with the makeshift arrow to make it into a regular arrow.

very short range arrows they only fly about 20 meters, but you should have the ability to retrieve the arrows sometimes, maybe every 3rd or 4th shot the arrow breaks on impact.
