Chinchompa detail

A Chinchompa is an explosive Ranged weapon, that can be obtained by box trapping a normal chinchompa. When used for ranging, chinchompas take up the weapons position, similar to throwing knives and Darts. The chinchompa is an explosive missile that requires 45 Ranged. When used, it has an area damage effect, hitting all enemies in a 3x3 area centred on the enemy being targeted. They are sometimes seen as the second best weapon to train ranged with, after their stronger variant, Red chinchompas. They require a hunter level of 53 to hunt.

With the release of the Summoning skill, chinchompas are used as a tertiary component for summoning a Giant chinchompa, and it is one of the few ingredients used in Summoning that stacks.

In divination, 20 chinchompas can be used to create a divine box trap.

When Runescape HD was released, the walking animations were also updated except when wielding chinchompas. Players will walk with the animations from RuneScape 2.

A confirmation screen for the Release option was added on 13 May 2010.

It has not been confirmed, but it appears that chinchompas, when thrown, would either damage all targets or miss on all of them. If this is true, then in crowded locations like Soul Wars, it is recommended to attack the target with the lowest defence level in order to hit those with higher defence.

Players may receive chinchompas from opening a box of summoning ingredients, a possible reward from the Familiarisation Distraction and Diversion.
