Magic shortbow detail.png

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 (Which can be obtained from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing for 5 Last Man Standing points or from other players) on a regular magic shortbow. The bow has an attack range of 7. Longrange increases attack range to 9.

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]

A player performing the magic shortbow's special attack, Snapshot.

This weapon retains the standard magic shortbow's special attack, Snapshot, which fires two arrows in rapid succession but with lowered accuracy, using 50% of the player's special attack energy. With perfect timing, this bow can hit three times in one game tick.

Damage inflicted by Snapshot is unaffected by ranged prayers (such as Eagle Eye and Rigour) and the slayer helmet (i).
