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 the Bounty Hunter Store in Edgeville for 600 points each. Lastly, they can be bought from the Lletya Archery shop.
For maximum damage output, people prefer Karil's crossbow, due to the bolts having +55 Ranged Strength, with the same speed as rune arrows with a magic shortbow. Rune arrows are a more cost-efficient alternative to the 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.
