Old School RuneScape Wiki
Adamant brutal arrows

Brutal arrows were released along with the Zogre Flesh Eaters quest. They are members' items. Instead of arrowtips, the brutal arrows use the flat sides of nails, therefore being "brutal". The brutal arrows are stronger than their regular arrow counterpart and have the bonus of being very effective versus Zogres due to their bones easily crumbling beneath the crushing force, as piercing weaponry is ineffective. This ability comes at the cost of not being poisonable. All types of brutal arrows appear identical. Brutal arrows can also be used to kill chompy birds in the same way as with Ogre arrows.

Note: Brutal arrows can only be fired from a Comp ogre bow, other Composite bows will not work.

Brutal arrows are tradeable and therefore they can be bought by other players or at the Grand Exchange if you do not wish to make them yourself.

How to make

Upon completion of Big Chompy Bird Hunting, players are able to cut achey logs.

Brutal arrows can only be fired from composite ogre bows which are only available to players who have gone far enough into the Zogre Flesh Eaters quest. Grish will show you how to make a composite ogre bow from an achey log and wolf bones.
