Chargebow detail

The chargebow is a bow that requires no ammunition to fire, instead it produces its own magical arrows to fire at opponents, similar to the crystal bow. It is a free to play item and dropped by most low level monsters. It can also be obtained as a free sample from the Gnome Shopkeeper's Armoury in Burthorpe.

On release of the Evolution of Combat on 20 November 2012 all slings in the game were turned into chargebows.

This item can be obtained as a free sample from:


  • The chargebow was one of only three bows in the game with a speed of 'Fastest'. The other two are the hexhunter bow and the seercull. An update changed its speed to 'Fast'.
  • It is identical in appearance to a training bow.
  • Players can only receive a maximum of five chargebows a day from monster drops, but this doesn't affect the number that may be purchased from the Grand Exchange.
