Sorry But Medieval Armies Probably Didn’t Use Fire Arrows

Fire arrows are in everything from Gladiator to Braveheart to Game of Thrones. The good guys stretch their bows in unison and rain flaming death en masse onto the opposing army, looking like total badasses the whole time.

But like so many things on this terrible planet, fire arrows are too good to be true and almost no medieval army actually used them in open warfare.
