Shortbow detail.png

The shortbow is the weakest bow in Old School RuneScape and can use arrows up to iron. Players can purchase this bow from Lowe's Archery Emporium in Varrock.

Players are supplied with this bow along with several bronze arrows as their first ranged weapon on Tutorial Island.

Members can make a shortbow through the Fletching skill at level 5. First, a player must cut an unstrung shortbow from logs, granting 5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung shortbow with a bow string, granting 5 experience.
