Tranq darts? maybe a blowgun?

Yeah, I think they might be trying to give early level players the ability to have range tranq before the arrows and narq. I would bet they are flint, thatch and narco berries to craft.

Tranq darts are fired from the Machined Sniper Rifle they're adding. The tranq darts are intended to be an even more potent form of the narc arrow.

I am at work so I don't know for sure.

They are usually late on pushing the actual patch.
