If you miss your shots they will break - Go for clean stealth killshots in order to be able to retrieve them. Arrows do more damage when the enemy doesn't see it coming.

I know what youre talking about, Im pretty sure they break randomly. I know that when you shoot them in the head you can usually go pick them up, but even sometimes with headshots and I know they were headshots because it was against clickers, they can break on you.

Sometimes they break. I hit a firefly pendant out of a tree, and the arrow broke. Sometimes I can pick it up off a body, but other times I can't. You aren't doing anything wrong.

It happens to me too. I get a clean shot and I can see it still intake but I can't pick it up because it goes in side the map, but you can retrieve it by moving around on top of the body you and keep pressing triangle but it takes a long time sometimes. I hope this is helpful to you.

You shouldn't waste an arrow to get a firefly pendant thrown a brick or bottle for that…save them arrows Smiley Happy
