Rune arrows are stronger than adamant arrows, are stackable, and can be used on any bow of yew or stronger. They can be created through the Fletching skill at level 75 by using 15 rune arrowtips on 15 headless arrows, granting 187.5 Fletching experience. Players may also obtain 50 rune arrows from the Ranging Guild in exchange for 2,000 archery tickets, or obtain 300 at Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing in Ferox Enclave in exchange for 3 Last Man Standing points. Lastly, they can be bought from the Lletya Archery shop and Daryl's Ranging Surplus in Shayzien.

Rune arrows with a Magic shortbow (i) are a powerful weapon for Ironmen before obtaining the Toxic blowpipe, however they are outclassed by Karil's crossbow.

Despite the presumed expense, as with all ranged ammunition, rune arrows only have a 20% chance to break when fired. Assuming the player wears a device such as Ava's accumulator, 72% of the arrows are returned and 8% fall to the ground. With Ava's assembler, 80% of the arrows are returned instead, leaving none on the ground.
