Salamanders are unique and versatile two handed weapons that facilitate the training of all combat styles, namely the Ranged, Magic and Strength skills.

Salamanders may be obtained through net trapping and must be fuelled using a variety of herb-tars made with the Herblore skill. The black salamander is commonly used by players with a low budget to kill the Barrows brothers or to safe spot Lava dragons.

When using the Scorch (Slash) and Blaze (Magic) attack styles, the attack speed is 5. When using the Flare (Range) attack style, the attack speed is 6, which is similar in concept to the Rapid style of most Ranged weapons.
