Weapon poison(++), also known as super weapon poison, is made at 82 Herblore by mixing cave nightshade and poison ivy berries in a vial of coconut milk, giving 190 Herblore experience. It is the strongest weapon poison in Old School RuneScape.
Melee attacks apply poison at 25% chance, where Ranged attacks apply poison at 12.5% chance. Weapon poison(++) deals 6 damage (4 damage with ranged weapons) every 18 seconds. If it is not reapplied to the target, the poison deals 1 less damage every 5 hits until the target is no longer poisoned. Ranged weapons with Weapon poison(++) applied, however, will only hit 4 once before starting to hit 3s. For melee weapons this means a total of 105 damage will be dealt from the poison, whilst for range weapons this will only be 34.
Weapon poison can be removed from a weapon with a cleaning cloth.
Total Poison damage[edit | edit source]
Total Poison damage (Melee: DM and Ranged: DR) is calculated by the sum of all numbers (n) up to the max hit (M), times the amount of hits per number (H=5).
In conclusion: To defeat something with only poison, melee provides just over triple the amount of poison damage compared to ranged poison damage and additionally has double the chance to be applied (1/4 vs 1/8).

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The use of the suffixes (+) and (++) to denote increasing strength is unique to weapon poison, antipoison, and anti-venom, as well as the Chambers of Xeric-exclusive Overload (+). Other potions use the prefix "super" to denote an increase in strength.
