The ogre bow is one of two bows that can use ogre arrows. The other bow is the comp ogre bow which can also use brutal arrows. The ogre bow cannot be fletched and can only use ogre arrows.

The ogre bow is obtained from Rantz during the Big Chompy Bird Hunting quest. If you lose it, you may buy another from him for an amount which changes each time, but is in the range of 500-550 coins. You will also need this bow for Freeing Skrach Uglogwee in the Recipe for Disaster quest.

The ogre bow requires a Ranged level of 30 or higher to wield. It has the same ranged attack bonus but a much slower attack speed as its counterpart, the comp ogre bow.

The Void Knight equipment set's accuracy bonuses do stack with the Ogre bow, however, the damage bonus does not get applied.[1]

The player can check the number of chompy birds they have killed by selecting the "Check kills" option on the bow.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Robert the Strong appears to be wielding an ogre bow.
  • Attempting to light a fire with an ogre bow after completing Barbarian Firemaking Training will result in the chatbox message "This bow is vast, clumsy and most of a tree. You realise that this type of bow is useless for firelighting.".
