Magic shortbow detail

The magic shortbow (i) is a bow that requires level 50 Ranged in order to use, and is obtained by using a magic shortbow scroll (obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store in Edgeville) on a regular magic shortbow.

The imbued bow has +75 Ranged attack, instead of the regular bow's +69, and uses 50% of the special bar when performing the special attack, instead of the regular bow's 55%.

When using rune arrows, this shortbow does comparable damage-per-second to broad bolts. Due to the way that a player's Ranged level increases damage independent of ranged strength, this shortbow may deal more damage per second against targets with lower Defence.

Special attackEdit

Snapshot

A player performing the magic shortbow's special attack, Snapshot.

This weapon retains the standard magic shortbow's special attack, Snapshot, which will shoot two arrows in rapid succession but with lowered accuracy, using 50% of a player's special attack energy. With perfect timing, this bow can hit three times in one game tick.

However, damage inflicted by Snapshot is unaffected by ranged prayers (such as Eagle Eye) and the slayer helmet (i).
