Bone Shortbow Guide OSRS

The bone shortbow is a ranged weapon that demands a Ranged level of 50 for effective use. The resulting bow boasts offensive stats identical to those of the magic shortbow and has the capacity to shoot amethyst arrows.

Being a specialized rat bone weapon, it exhibits heightened effectiveness against all rat types, including Scurrius, by augmenting the player's maximum hit with an additional 10 damage. It is important to note that the bone shortbow is exclusively designed for use against rats; any attempt to deploy it against other monster types will result in the message, "You can only use this weapon against rats."
