One of my favorite parts of a survival game like Grounded is using the bow and arrow to fight off deadly creatures. However, we need to get thistle needles before we can make arrows in Grounded.
Where to get the Thistle Needle in Grounded
To get Thistle in Grounded you need to find one thistle Attachment. Look for a tall stem with a purple flower at the top. Once you find one, approach the stem and remove the needles leading up it. You don’t need an ax to get thistle needles out of the plant. I’ve marked a location below where I found some thistle plants.

Make sure the flower looks exactly like the one pictured in these instructions. There are several purple flowers so keep an eye out for them Onion under the purple flower to check if it is a thistle plant. You can climb a rock or the roots of the oak tree to reach a higher vantage point and find her. If you are among tall blades of grass, it may be difficult to see the thistle from the ground.
Thistle needle is Mainly used to make arrows, but it also has other uses. You can use it to make various acorn fences and even a spike trap. If you prefer to hunt and fight from a distance with a bow and arrow, you will need a lot of Thistle Needle to make as many arrows as possible.
