Giant spider

This article is about the monster. For dungeon guard, see Huge spider.

The giant spider is a ranged-based monster in RuneScape suited for low level combat. They come in a variety of levels, and are weak to crush attacks, so a mace or warhammer will dispatch them quickly, although any melee weapon can be used. They have moderate resistance to ranged and high magic resistance, and will range the player right back if attacked with these styles, so training these skills on them is not advised.

Many new players kill the level 2 giant spiders to train combat because of their low combat level and close location to the starting point in Lumbridge. They primarily attack with ranged. Giant spiders in Lumbridge sometimes have a 1 out of 6 chance to drop an Earth talisman.

The level 33 variants are rarely trained on, and are aggressive. They also use ranged in combat.
