Swam lizard detail

The swamp lizard is a two handed Ranged weapon. It requires a level of 30 Ranged, Magic and Attack to wield. To be operated, the swamp lizard requires its requisite fuel, guam tar.

Despite being able to perform Magic and Ranged attacks, this weapon requires the user to be in the opponent's melee distance to attack, potentially reducing the practicality of the two attack styles.

Salamander attack

A player attacks using a salamander.

With 29 Hunter swamp lizards may be obtained by trapping swamp lizards using net traps or buying them from other players.

In its melee mode, the swamp lizard has a chance of inflicting poison starting at 6 damage.
