The steel javelin is a type of member's only Ranged ammunition used by the light and heavy ballistas.

They can be fletched by attaching steel javelin heads to javelin shafts at level 32 Fletching, granting 75 experience per 15 javelins made. They can also be obtained by buying them from the Ranging Guild, the Void Knight Archery Store or from Oobapohk's Javelin Store after Monkey Madness II.


  • Before the release of Monkey Madness II, steel javelins were equippable in the Weapon slot, providing a Ranged Attack and Ranged Strength of +12.
  • On 31 October 2016, the steel javelin's Ranged Strength bonus was changed from +75 to +64.[1]
