Deadly red spiders are spiders found in several locations in RuneScape, especially in the Wilderness, Varrock sewers, and Karamja. Their ranged attacks hit hard 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, giving around 200,000 experience per hour, with high combat members 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.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included—see here for how to help out!
  • patch 13 August 2013 (Update):

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The examine used to say, "I think this spider has been genetically modified."
  • Some Deadly red spiders in the Wilderness use melee instead of ranged.
  • Deadly red spiders have the highest combat level of any non-unique, non-event free-to-play monster. After the 2023 changes to monster combat stats, their max hit was massively increased and they may now have the highest max hit from regular attacks.
