Fire giants are assigned by a multitude of Slayer masters, providing fairly decent experience for both combat and Slayer. They're also frequently killed by Ironman players early on due to their signature rune scimitar drop, as they are fairly easy to access with numerous safespots. Low-level players may find enchanted pearl bolts helpful when training Ranged against these enemies. Although there are many locations where cannons can be used, none of these locations are in a multicombat area.
You can tell them apart in the Catacombs of Kourend, as the level 109 giants wield clubs, while the level 104 giants wield flaming swords, which can be helpful for mobile players who would have to long press to see what level they are.

Location comparisons[edit | edit source]
In the Waterfall Dungeon and the Brimhaven Dungeon, they may be attacked safely with Ranged, Magic or halberd. The Waterfall Dungeon is the safest place to attack them from a range because of the safespot both behind the rock in the middle of the room and in the doorway, as the giants are too large (2 spaces wide) to retaliate. There is also a safespot in the large room with 7 fire giants once they become unaggressive. Stand on one side of the long table with the Fire giant on the other side of it.
The Smoke Dungeon contains a few fire giants which are almost always empty as players are forced to bring a facemask or slayer helm to avoid smoke inhalation. There is one safespot near the entrance to Fareed, where there is 1 fire giant near a narrow 1 tile passageway between lava and a wall. This is however sub-optimal, as it is the only fire giant in the area thus forcing you to wait the respawn time of ~15 seconds.
The Stronghold Slayer Cave has a safespot that can be used with little to no interruption from other aggressive fire giants. However, you may only kill monsters in this cave if they are currently assigned to you by a slayer master.
However, in the Catacombs of Kourend, the best safespot of all becomes available after 10 minutes and grants complete protection against any attacks. In order to use the non-aggressive safespot you must walk to it first and then return to the aggressive one to wait the 10 minutes otherwise the aggression area will be reset. There is another safespot on the stairs between the fire giants and mutated bloodvelds that doesn't require the 10 minute aggression timer wait. Killing these in the Catacombs of Kourend is often favoured if not planning to use a cannon (as they cannot be placed in the dungeon), as they grant higher slayer experience than normal and also drop ancient shards and dark totem pieces.
The Deep Wilderness Dungeon also contains fire giants; however, given its location deep in the Wilderness, it is usually only used for Wilderness slayer. If completing a task here, is recommended to complete the medium Wilderness Diaries to unlock a shortcut which significantly cuts travelling time and increases odds of escaping player killers.
The Karuulm Slayer Dungeon contains a safespot in the farthest north pocket as long as you lure them to the east wall of the northern pocket or by standing along the north wall of the entrance provided the monster you attack is north of you when you attack it.
