A Giant spider is an introductory monster in RuneScape that fights with ranged attacks. They come in a variety of levels, and are weak to crush attacks, so a mace or warhammer will dispatch them quickly, although any melee weapon can be used. They have moderate resistance to ranged and high magic resistance, and will range the player right back if attacked with these styles, so training these skills on them is not advised.

Many new players kill the level 2 giant spiders to train combat because of their low combat level and close location to the starting point in Lumbridge. They primarily attack with ranged.

The level 33 spiders are rarely trained on, and are aggressive. They also use ranged in combat.

The level 39 Giant spiders are fairly accurate and can hit up to 103 LP if you have low defence, so it is recommended that players wear at least full rune armour and bring food (filling the inventory with food is recommended as the spiders drop nothing). Alternatively, members can bring a Bunyip, Saradomin Godsword, Unicorn Stallion, or a full set of Guthans to heal with. Giant spiders in Lumbridge has an approximately 1 out of 6 chance to drop an earth talisman upon death.
