Deadshot

Deadshot is an ultimate Ranged ability, and the only ultimate Ranged ability available usable by free-to-play players. It is one of four bleed abilities for the Ranged skill, the others being Lesser Fragmentation Shot, Fragmentation Shot, and Corruption Shot. When activated, the player fires a shot that deals 37.6-188% weapon damage and then a further 313% weapon damage over 6 seconds.

The 313% weapon damage is spread equally over 5 hits in 6 seconds, with the first hit of the 5 occurring just right before the 188% weapon damage hit.

Unlike normal abilities, damage over time effects are not affected by:
Damage boosting prayers and ancient curses (aside from their accuracy bonus)
Damage boosting abilities: Berserk, Death's Swiftness, and Sunshine (with the exception of Metamorphosis)
Zaros Godsword's special attack
Berserker's Fury relic power
Most invention perks affecting variable damage, including Genocidal, Precise, Equilibrium, and Ruthless
Some items from the slayer (effect) groups, including: tuned Bane equipment, Salve amulet (e), Demon slayer equipment, Darklight
Critical hits
Slayer helmet and its variants
Damage over time effects are only affected by some modifiers, including:
Damage bonus from equipment
Visible combat skill boosts, from potions or other sources
Vulnerability or its lesser form, Curse
Berserker, Reckless, and Maniacal auras - however, while inside the effects of Berserk, Death's Swiftness, or Sunshine, the aura's invisible boost is negated
Mahjarrat and Dark magic auras - regardless of being inside the effects of Berserk, Death's Swiftness, or Sunshine
Among the Dragon slayer, Demon slayer, and Undead slayer effect groups, only the slayer invention perks and slayer abilities affect bleeds
Scrimshaws

There is a brief delay before Deadshot may actually inflict the damage. Players can check if Deadshot is successful during this delay by looking for the Deadshot icon in the combat interface.

Massacre is the Melee equivalent of Deadshot; however Massacre has a 60 second cooldown as opposed to Deadshot's 30 second cooldown.

  • During early release, the Deadshot ability would make a blue skull appear above the user's head. This animation no longer happens.
