Giant spider

The giant spider is a ranged-based monster suited for low level combat. The level 2 variant is commonly fought for early combat training. Many can be found in Lumbridge Swamp, and many more in Feldip Hills. Low-level players wishing to train on giant spiders should prioritise those found in the swamps.

Giant spiders are weak to crush attacks, but any melee weapon should suffice.
