Weapon poison(+) detail.png

Weapon poison(+) is made by mixing a cactus spine followed by red spiders' eggs in a vial of coconut milk, granting 165 Herblore experience. This requires a Herblore level of 73 or higher. It can also be looted from ninja impling jars.

A single vial of weapon poison can poison only 5 bolts, javelins, darts, or throwing knives. This makes poisoning a substantial amount of ammo quite costly.

Melee attacks apply poison at 25% chance, where Ranged attacks apply poison at 12.5% chance. Weapon poison(+) deals 5 damage (3 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 3 once before starting to hit 2s. For melee weapons this means a total of 75 damage will be dealt from the poison, whilst for range weapons this will only be 18.

You can remove weapon poison 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: if you intend to kill something with only poison, it is recommended to use melee, as it provides almost 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).
