The Broadhead Arrow inflicts large wounds on unarmored targets, causing more damage to troops such as the Archer and Man-at-Arms. The broadhead is shaped a bit like spear point, intended to make as large of a wound as possible. Due to its wide (broad) arrowhead, it can, however, not penetrate chainmail or plate armour, this gives it a huge disadvantage against knights and vanguards.
It is very suitable for taking out archers and man at arms, and can do so with great ease, especially when combined with the warbow. Apart from the damage typing and the base damage, it shares all its statistics with the bodkin.
