Green salamander detail.png

The green salamander is a two-handed ranged weapon. It requires a Ranged level of 30 to wield. In order to be operated, players must provide the lizard with guam tar, placed in the ammunition slot. A green salamander is also used as a tertiary ingredient for creating a Swamp titan pouch in Summoning.

With 29 Hunter, the green salamander weapon may be obtained by net trapping green salamanders in Morytania, buying them from other players, or by buying them from the Grand Exchange.

Players may also trap green salamanders in Nyriki's private hunting grounds through the Green salamander portal with the use of green salamander quota tickets. These tickets can be earned through the Big Chinchompa Distraction & Diversion. This method can be considered easier than hunting green salamanders in Morytania, because the player does not have to worry about dealing with ghasts or other aggressive creatures.

Players may receive green salamanders from opening a box of summoning ingredients, a possible reward from the Familiarisation Distraction and Diversion, from opening a Reward casket (elite) at the end of an elite Treasure Trail, or as a possible reward from the Giant Oyster.

The green salamander will not appear under the player's gravestone if he/she dies. If held in a beast of burden when the beast is dismissed, they will appear on the ground.
