Willow composite bow detail.png

Willow composite bows are a reward from tier 1 Treasure Trails. They require level 20 Ranged to use and can shoot up to Mithril arrows. The attack range of the willow composite bow is nine game squares.

The willow composite bow cannot be made using the Fletching skill and is currently the only composite bow available for free-to-play players. They can also be obtained through trading with another player.

This bow shares its stats with the willow shieldbow, the only real differences being its attack range (one extra in comparison to the shieldbow) and its relative uncommonness. This bow was regarded a status symbol to free-to-play players due to its rarity and price prior to 2010.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Years ago, the Willow Composite Bow used to change colours. Two bands on the bow would turn to the same colour as the user's hair. Jagex changed this after a while for an unknown reason. Whether it was a glitch or not is unknown.
  • The walk animation when wielding the bow is the same used when wielding a staff.
