Longbow (weapon)

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Longbows can fire arrows at targets from a further distance than shortbows can, but they fire at a slower rate. They have exactly the same stats as the shortbow, but cost more due to their greater attack range. They are not used often due to their slow speed, but are sometimes used to snipe enemies from a far distance. It is commonly used by archers who need to snipe their enemies (e.g. sniping a lesser demon while camping behind a barricade far away) and can hit up to nine squares away, 10 when on the long range attack style.
