Swamp lizard detail.png

The swamp lizard 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 Swamp lizard is also used as a tertiary ingredient for creating a Swamp titan pouch in Summoning.

With 29 Hunter, the swamp lizard weapon may be obtained by net trapping swamp lizards in Morytania, buying them from other players, or by buying them from the Grand Exchange.

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

Players may receive swamp lizards 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 swamp lizard 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.
