Magic shortbow (i) 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 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%.

Typically, a magic shortbow with rune arrows deals significantly higher damage-per-second than a rune crossbow with broad bolts.

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. While the in-game tooltip states that Snapshot has reduced accuracy, it actually likely has an accuracy boost of or about 43%.[1]

Damage inflicted by Snapshot is unaffected by Ranged-boosting prayers (such as Eagle Eye and Rigour) and the Slayer helmet (i), but its accuracy is.[2][3]
