Deathtouched dart is an item that will kill almost any monster in the game with one hit. It was originally rewarded to players that had picked the Instakill Dart option from the fate cards received for having membership throughout August and September 2012 as part of Sizzling Summer. A maximum of four darts could be obtained from the fate cards. During the September 2014 Balthazar's Big Raffle event, a set of 3 deathtouched darts could be won by entering the raffle on Thursdays.

When the dart was used it did not give any combat experience; however, Slayer experience would still be gained if used to kill an appropriate Slayer target. All unused darts from the original promotion were removed from the game on 1 January 2013 with the update Happy New Year!.

Instant kill hitsplat

Hitsplat whenever a deathtouch dart is used on a high level monster following EoC changes.

Did not work onEdit

  • It cannot be used on players.
  • It cannot be used inside Daemonheim.
  • It cannot be used to defeat the Dagannoth Mother in Blood Runs Deep unless she is in her vulnerable to ranged stage.
  • It cannot be used on Lucien in the Ritual of the Mahjarrat. (As such, it can be inferred that it doesn't work on the other Mahjarrat or your allies, such as Sir Tiffy.)
  • It cannot be used on the Fire Warrior of Lesarkus; he will interrupt combat unless you use ice arrows.

Tip for effective useEdit

  • If used in conjunction with Soul Split, the player would receive the full healing effects, completely healing players depending on what they killed.


  • Deathtouched darts at one point did not kill Nex instantly. This bug lead to a lot of people dying and causing a grave glitch where you had to cast Telekinetic Grab to pick up your items from your grave.
  • The deathtouched dart hit splat from EoC is used by Vorago when he pushes you off the strip of land.
