Shortbow detail

The Shortbow is the weakest shortbow in RuneScape. Players can purchase this bow from most shops that sell Ranged weaponry.

Shortbows may be made through the Fletching skill at level 1. First, a player must cut an unstrung shortbow from logs, granting 5 Fletching experience. Then, the player must string the unstrung shortbow with a bow string, granting 5 experience.

Previously, all new players would obtain a free shortbow after completing the Tutorial, but due to the Tutorial update, players no longer obtain one.

The attack range of the shortbow is 7 spaces.

Shortbows are often used by Skill Pures because if no arrows are equipped a player can not accidentally deal damage to a creature and gain combat xp.
