Chinchompas are multi-target stackable Ranged weapons requiring level 45 Ranged to wield. Chinchompas can be obtained by box trapping grey chinchompas in the Piscatoris Hunter area or the Kourend Woodland. This requires 53 Hunter, and will give the player 198.4 Hunter experience per catch. They have a catch rate of about 146/268 at 53 Hunter and a guaranteed chance to catch at 95 Hunter.To use chinchompas in combat, they must be wielded in the weapons slot. Chinchompas are thrown like darts or throwing knives; however, they explode on impact. They can hit up to 9 targets in a 3x3 area. They cannot be picked up again from the ground after being thrown, and Ava's device does not return them. Throwing a chinchompa at a group determines the hit for the whole group, so if the chin hits a 0 on one member of the group, it will hit a 0 on all of them; if it hits a 10 on one member, it will hit within that range of all members of the group.
Attack speed: Fuses are used to describe the attack speed for throwing chinchompas. It is just another name for the conventional styles of ranged training.
- Short fuse (accurate): 4 ticks
- Medium fuse (rapid): 3 ticks
- Long fuse (longrange): 4 ticks
Note: Because chinchompas are live animals, if a player dies with chinchompas in their inventory or equipped, the chinchompas will run away and cannot be retrieved. However, if a player dies in the Wilderness, the killer can pick up the killed player's chinchompas.

Chinchompa guide[edit | edit source]
Using grey chinchompas is a practical way of training Ranged and Hitpoints, since combat experience per hour is determined by how much DPS (damage per second) the player can deal. This causes high demand for chinchompas, and thus they are generally expensive, but cheaper than their stronger counterparts, the red and black chinchompas.
It is best used against multiple aggressive targets occupying a 3x3(or smaller) space and piled together, such as the Skeletons of Ape Atoll or the Maniacal monkeys in Kruk's Dungeon, as these monsters are highly aggressive and easily stack on top of each other, meaning that you will deal plenty of damage against them.
Chinchompas' accuracy is based off of the distance from the target.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Chinchompas are inspired by chinchillas.
