Bronze bolts: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

Bronze bolts are the weakest crossbow bolts, and may be shot from any crossbow.

They have a greater Ranged Strength than the bronze arrows, like all bolts, but for free players, arrows are suggested because the maximum accuracy bonus held by a Crossbow is +6 while the members maximum bonus at a Rune crossbow is +90, or +98 with an Unholy book.

Bronze bolts may be created by members. First, a player must smith unfinished bronze bolts. This requires a Smithing level of 3, and for each bronze bar that player smiths they will get 10 unfinished bronze bolts and 12 Smithing experience. Then a player must attach flights to the bolts. Attaching flights to each bolt requires a Fletching level of 9 and 1 feather, granting .5 Fletching experience per bolt. They may also be stolen from the crossbow stall in Keldagrim.

Bronze bolts may be tipped with Opal or barbs. To tip the bolts with opal, a player must have a Fletching level of 11 and use opal bolt tips with the bronze bolts, granting 1.6 Fletching experience for each opal bolt tip attached and making the bronze bolts into opal bolts. To barb the tips of the bolts, a player must have a Fletching level of 51 and use barbed bolt tips with the bronze bolts, granting 9.5 Fletching experience for each barbed bolt tip attached and making the bronze bolts into barbed bolts.

Interestingly, before the crossbows update, there was only one kind of bolt, called simply "bolts." These bolts could be tipped with barbs, pearls, and opals but not enchanted. With the arrival of the crossbow update all of the regular "bolts" became bronze bolts.

There are two respawn locations of Bronze bolts, found at top floor of the house opposite the Battleaxe store in Port Sarim (with the sink), and upstairs in Grum's Gold Exchange. They respawn in numbers of 1. Bronze bolts are the only non-member bolts.

Bronze bolts can also be bought from the arrow shop in Varrock for 3 coins each
