Hexhunter bow detail.png

The hexhunter bow is a tier 80 shortbow dropped by soulgazers. It is a surface version of the Dungeoneering hexhunter bow. Unlike the Dungeoneering variant, the surface bow is not a shieldbow and is a lower tier. The intended ammunition for the bow are stalker arrows; however, it can use any arrow.

It has two passive effects:

  • +12.5% damage boost against magic-classed enemies.[1]
  • +10% hit chance boost against magic-classed enemies.

A debuff icon is shown on an affected monster's icon bar when a player wields the hexhunter bow against them.

The bow degrades over 60,000 charges of combat to a broken state. It can be repaired by a Repair NPC for 2,000,000, or for cheaper at an armour stand.

The bow can be augmented using an augmentor, making the augmented hexhunter bow.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]

The following creatures and bosses are magical in nature, and thus are affected by the Hexhunter bow's boosts. Please note that this list is incomplete.

Bosses[edit | edit source]

Slayer monsters[edit | edit source]

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

The base repair cost of the Hexhunter bow when completely degraded to 0.0% item charge is 2,000,000 coins. It can be repaired by:

Alternatively, it can be repaired on an armour stand in a player-owned house, or a whetstone device anywhere. This provides a discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).

If it is only partially degraded, then the cost of a full repair is multiplied by the percentage of item charge that needs to be repaired to produce the current repair cost.
