The slayer helmet is a single item worn in the headslot that combines multiple pieces of protective and beneficial slayer gear. It may be assembled after a player spends 400 Slayer reward points to learn how to craft one, additionally requiring level 55 Crafting. The Slayer level requirement for the slayer helmet is 35, which is also needed to complete the pre-requisite quest Smoking Kills. When worn, the helmet provides the special effects of all of the Slayer equipment which it was made from. Masked earmuffs will not work when crafting the Slayer Helm, it must first be disassembled.

After an update on 8 February 2010, the slayer helmet can be upgraded to the full slayer helmet by combining it with a hexcrest and a focus sight. Similarly to the black mask, these improve magic and range by 12.5% during slayer tasks. These items are respectively dropped by the Jungle Strykewyrm (73 Slayer required) and the Desert Strykewyrm (77 Slayer required).

Assembling the helmetEdit
If a player were to use one slayer master only, the minimum tasks needed to be completed to earn the points required is as follows (this includes the 4 no-point tasks, and excludes any special task):
|Master||Before Smoking Kills||After Smoking Kills|
One way to decrease the time it takes to getting 400 points is by doing 9 low-level tasks, and on the 10th completing a harder slayer master's task.
After unlocking the ability to make the helmet, a message appears in the chat window stating: The secret is yours. You can now combine a black mask, face mask, spiny helm, nosepeg and earmuffs into one useful item.
The items used to make the slayer helmet are:
- An uncharged Black Mask, which gives a 12.5% Melee damage boost and 12.5% Melee accuracy bonus against the player's current slayer assignment.
- A pair of earmuffs, which deafens the screams of banshees
- A face mask, which allows the player to breathe in smoky dungeons
- A nose peg, which blocks the aberrant spectres' stench
- A spiny helmet, which protects the player from wall beasts when traversing the Lumbridge Swamp Caves
All of the aforementioned items are required to craft the helmet, as well as a Crafting level of 55 (can not be assisted). The helmet retains the abilities of all the items used to make it. It still gives the effect that the black mask does, but with better defence and bonuses, making it one of the best helms for slayer assignments.
For a player to construct the helmet, they must use one item on another if all the necessary items are in the player's inventory. The quest Smoking Kills is required to make the slayer helmet, and therefore must be completed before the Slayer helmet can be crafted, and worn. After being made, the slayer helmet may be disassembled and reassembled at any time (unless it has been enchanted to hold summoning scrolls).
The assist system cannot be used to make the slayer helmet although boosts may be used.
The slayer helmet costs 639,725 coins assuming all the components are bought from the Grand Exchange.
