Ranged[edit | edit source]

Ranged 1-99

AFK combat training on your phone when you’re otherwise not playing (0 time) can be greatly beneficial to Slayer.

1-27: Shadow of the storm

27-45 - Death to the dorgeshuun, Horror from the deep, Temple of ikov, early slayer+afk crabs with bone crossbow

45+: Throwing chins in the MM2 tunnels, you can throw some at dust devils or jellies if you can't access the tunnels yet

Alternatively 40-70: You can also make cannonballs during early smithing and use them for ranged training. This is decent in some situations since cannon is high dps compared to your low ranged level. It'd take roughly 35k cannonballs to get from 40-70 ranged.

55-99: Chinning / blowpipe slayer / AFK NMZ

Mostly trained as normal. Completing Shadow of the Storm (putting the experience reward on Ranged), Death to the Dorgeshuun and Horror from the Deep will grant a total of 16,662.5 experience, elevating a level 1 Ranged to 32 without doing any actual training.

Train low-level Slayer and do Pest Control (for Void Knight equipment) with the Dorgeshuun crossbow for early experience. Alternatively, players can kill Ammonite Crabs as they offer fairly fast experience and they are very afkable.

Recommended weapons for Ammonite Crabs, in order of damage output:

From level 55 onwards, the best way of gaining Ranged experience is to hunt carnivorous chinchompas and throw them at maniacal monkeys in Kruk's Dungeon on Ape Atoll. It is strongly recommended to unlock the Gwenith Hunter area (requires completion of Song of the Elves) or the red chinchompa hunting ground (requires completion of the hard tasks in the Western Provinces Diary) as soon as possible, as hunting carnivorous chinchompas in other areas is a lot slower and they are usually crowded. Players can also hunt black chinchompas for faster experience, however without high stats and good defensive equipment players are very vulnerable to player killers. Alternatively, players can keep training on Ammonite Crabs, but this is a lot slower than hunting and throwing chinchompas.

Once a high Ranged level is attained, players can gain the remaining experience from killing certain bosses and demi-bosses, such as lizardman shamans, demonic gorillas, Zulrah and Alchemical Hydra.

Ranging Slayer tasks is generally not recommended at higher levels, except when killing certain bosses and demi-bosses. Toxic blowpipe is the only viable option for general Slayer training in terms of damage output, but it is faster overall to use Melee than use a toxic blowpipe and kill Zulrah for the Zulrah's scales.
