Infernal harpoon (uncharged) detail.png

The infernal harpoon is a special non-tradable harpoon created by using a smouldering stone on a dragon harpoon, requiring 75 Fishing and 85 Cooking to craft. This cannot be boosted. It is non-reversible and grants 350 Cooking and 200 Fishing experience.

Fish caught with a charged harpoon have a 1/3 (33%) chance to be cooked and destroyed instantly, granting half of the Cooking experience that would normally be gained from cooking the fish otherwise. Harpoonfish caught within the Tempoross minigame are not destroyed when cooked, making it a popular upgrade that saves 3 ticks (1.8 seconds) per fish. The harpoon will not consume big fish, such as the big shark.[1] Fishing training methods using tick manipulation also can use the infernal harpoon to avoid dropping 1/3rd of the fish caught.

Since it cannot revert to its components and cannot be traded, if lost on death in level 20 or higher Wilderness it is converted to 11,000.

If all 5,000 charges are used on raw sharks, 525,000 Cooking experience will be gained which would save about 2 hours of cooking and destroy 2,895,000 in fish.

Special Attack[edit | edit source]

The infernal harpoon has the same special attack as the dragon harpoon, Fishstabber, that provides a visible +3 boost to Fishing, consuming 100% special attack energy.

Charging and Degradation[edit | edit source]

The harpoon is initially created with 5,000 charges at the cost of 7,389,574. One charge is depleted each time a fish is automatically cooked. After all charges are consumed the harpoon will still work like a basic dragon harpoon.

In this uncharged state the harpoon can be recharged with either another smouldering stone or another dragon harpoon. This means recharging can be many times cheaper than the initial 5000 charges when crafted.
