It is created by using ballista limbs on a light frame, then using the resulting incomplete light ballista on a ballista spring, and finally adding a monkey tail on an unstrung light ballista. The entire process requires 47 Fletching and grants 330 experience.
The speed on accurate is one tick slower than a godsword, but when put on rapid it matches the speed of a godsword. The ballista has an attack range of 9. Longrange increases attack range by 1.

Changes[edit | edit source]
|1 December 2016
The light ballista's ranged attack bonus was changed from 75 to 110. Its level requirement was also increased from 30 to 65 Ranged to wield. The light ballista can now fire javelins up to Dragon.
|31 October 2016
The delay between the projectile hitting the player and the damage hitsplat appearing has been removed. Previously, there was a delay that allowed a ballista hit and other weapon special attacks to stack in quick succession.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The special attack tooltip stating that it has a 2.4 second delay to attack is false; there is no extra delay associated with the special attack.
