Steel darts are Ranged throwing weapons. To wield steel darts, players must have at least level 5 Ranged. They can be obtained by either using the Smithing and Fletching skills or trading with another player. Steel darts can be poisoned and can be wielded with a shield or prayer book for protection.

To create steel darts, the player must have completed the Tourist Trap quest and have at least level 34 Smithing and level 37 Fletching. Each steel bar will create 10 steel dart tips and the player will receive 37.5 Smithing experience. When feathers are added the player will receive 10 steel darts and 7.5 Fletching experience per steel dart.

Steel darts have almost the same stats and speed as iron knives, which are often used for Ranged training at lower levels - however, they are far cheaper in price than iron knives due to people training Fletching.

A steel dart is one of the possible items requested by the Rowdy Dwarf during the Forgettable Tale quest.
