Red salamander detail

The Red salamander is the second strongest salamander and can be caught using the Hunter skill. It requires level 60 Ranged to wield.

Tarromin Tar is used as ammo for the salamander. Tarromin tar can be made by using a Clean tarromin with Swamp tar along with 39 Herblore. It can also be bought from other players or at the Grand Exchange. This weapon can serve as an inexpensive alternative to the Dragon 2h crossbow, but its proprietary ammo can be difficult to buy from the Grand Exchange, and is consumed on use, much like bolt racks.

Warning: As with all salamanders, the red salamander will NOT appear under your gravestone if you die and choose not to keep it. This is because it is a live creature, and it will run away. Should this happen, you will need to buy or catch a new one.

  • Before 13 May 2013, this weapon also required 60 Attack and 60 Magic. This was because it was a multi-style weapon that could use melee and magic attacks before the launch of the Evolution of Combat, although the Attack and Magic requirements were not removed immediately after it became a ranged weapon with the update.
