The scythians were reputed to poison their arrows, but it killed via wound infection rather than immediate effect. Greek mythology has examples of poisoned arrows and their lingering effects too, which were probably derived from actual practices.I know various tropical hunter-gatherers use poisoned arrows and darts to hunt. Are there any examples of poisoned weapons being used by ancient or medieval warriors? Is there a poisoned weapon that could reasonable deliver its poison to an armored foe?
I seem to be recall you can also use this for big game hunting. A video from my school day ages.Hunters who use poison darts or arrows typically hunt small animals, and even then they have to follow them around (usually putting in a few more darts in the process if given the chance) for a good while before the poison takes effect and actually drops the catch.
