Deadly red spiders are spiders found in several locations in RuneScape, especially in the Wilderness, Varrock sewers, and Karamja. Deadly red spiders are fairly accurate and can hit up to 272, with a ranged attack, with a speed of 4 game ticks (equivalent to scimitar/mace/dagger speed). Deadly red spiders count towards a Slayer task of spiders.

Deadly red spiders are a very effective training method because of their high experience yield relative to their lifepoints, giving around 200,000 experience per hour, with high combat P2P players getting over 300,000 experience per hour. As a result, deadly red spiders are usually crowded in free-to-play worlds.

Deadly red spiders in the Chaos Tunnels

As far as training in free-to-play areas is concerned, a free player who is not concerned with raising Prayer through monster drops and has at least 40 Fishing and Cooking would do well to train melee in the Karamja Dungeon due west of the Karamja volcano entrance. This particular training spot is almost never crowded, and there is relatively close fishing spot to catch lobsters at Musa Point, located on the northern end of the island's surface. Players may obtain logs from the tree near the end of the docks or via dead trees on the volcano to make fires and subsequently cook the fish they catch. These possibilities mean a self-sufficient player could potentially remain on Karamja and train on the spiders indefinitely.
