The first thing you need to craft a Poison Arrows in Red Dead Redemption 2 is a Recipe Pamphlet, and you will have to buy it from a Fence for $58. Look for it at a Fence in Rhodes – I got it from this place. You will be making your way into the Rhodes as part of the main story progress. Once you reach this place look into all the vendor’s stock, one of them will have Recipe Pamphlet for Poison Arrows. If you don’t find it at any vendor then all you have to do is go to a Fence in a different location.
