The magic shortbow (i) is a bow that requires level 50 Ranged in order to use, and is obtained by using a magic shortbow scroll (obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store in Edgeville) on a regular magic shortbow.
The imbued bow has +75 Ranged attack, instead of the regular bow's +69, and uses 50% of the special bar when performing the special attack, instead of the regular bow's 55%.
When using rune arrows, this shortbow does comparable damage-per-second to broad bolts. Due to the way that a player's Ranged level increases damage independent of ranged strength, this shortbow may deal more damage per second against targets with lower Defence.
Special attack[edit | edit source]
This weapon retains the standard magic shortbow's special attack, Snapshot, which will shoot two arrows in rapid succession but with lowered accuracy, using 50% of a player's special attack energy. With perfect timing, this bow can hit three times in one game tick.
