Toxic blowpipe detail

The toxic blowpipe is a two-handed dart weapon that requires 75 Ranged to wield. It is made by using a chisel on a tanzanite fang, requiring 53 Fletching. Players using the blowpipe have a 25% chance of inflicting venom on their opponent. However, if the opponent is an NPC and the serpentine helm is worn in conjunction with the blowpipe, there is a 100% chance of envenoming them.

The base attack speed of the toxic blowpipe varies; in player versus monster encounters, its attack speed is 7, or equal to darts. During player versus player combat, its attack speed is 6, or equal to a shortbow. In addition, its attack range is +2 higher than that of throwing darts.

If the blowpipe is not protected upon death, all scale and dart charges will appear on the floor alongside the blowpipe.

Players can dismantle an uncharged blowpipe to receive 20,000 Zulrah's scales, however, this will result in a loss of -407,008 coins.

ChargingEdit

The toxic blowpipe is charged with Zulrah's scales; it cannot be wielded if it is uncharged, except when fully degraded while equipped. It uses unpoisoned darts as ammunition, and can hold up to 16,383 scales and 16,383 darts, costing 4,079,367 to fully charge. 2 scales are used for every 3 shots fired. A fully charged blowpipe lasts 8 hours and 12 minutes of non-stop combat with rapid attack style, or 12 hours and 17 minutes with accurate style. At the current price, it would cost 164.34 per shot, excluding the cost of darts. When charged with scales, the blowpipe has a Ranged attack of 60 and a Ranged strength of 40. These bonuses stack with the bonuses of its ammunition. For example, using dragon darts on the charged blowpipe will increase its Ranged attack to +78, and its Ranged strength to +60.

Special attackEdit

Concept artEdit

TriviaEdit

  • In PvP situations upon release, the toxic blowpipe's attack speed was 8 on rapid, meaning it was able to attack every 1.2 seconds, which made it easy to overpower another opponent in player-versus-player combat. This was fixed in an update the next day so that the blowpipe's speed on rapid would be equal to that of a shortbow only in PvP; player-versus-monster encounters remain unaffected.
  • Prior to an update on 16 November 2017, the blowpipe envenomed NPCs at the same rate as envenoming players at a rate of 1 in 4 (25%) regardless of whether a serpentine helm was worn.
