A player using a Rune crossbow

The Rune crossbow is currently the strongest of all crossbows. It requires a Ranged level of 61 to wield, and can use bolts up to onyx bolts.

Rune crossbows can be made through the Fletching skill at level 69; a player must first cut a yew stock for the crossbow from yew logs, granting 50 Fletching experience. Then, a player must add rune crossbow limbs to the stock, granting 100 experience and making an unstrung rune crossbow. Finally, a player must string the crossbow with crossbow string, granting 50 experience. The Rune crossbow is the strongest crossbow in the game and one of the strongest range weapons overall, but it is slower than Karil's crossbow. If it is combined with an Unholy book, it will surpass the Dark bow in Ranged attack bonus. It can also be wielded with a shield, similar to throwing knives, allowing a significant defensive bonus. This allows for players to range while still keeping defensive abilities of shields such as an anti-dragon or dragonfire shield when fighting Dragons.
