The dark bow is a ranged weapon and is one of the strongest bows in the game. Dark bows are dropped by Dark Beasts which require level 90 Slayer to kill.

The dark bow fires two arrows at once and is the only bow that can fire dark arrows.

The bow - and any of its coloured versions - can be combined with a wyrm scalp to make a strykebow with 20% charge. It can also be combined with a strykebow to repair it by 20%. These actions are irreversible.

As a reward from the Barbarian Assault minigame, it is possible to recolour a dark bow. Each colour costs 50 honour points (from any role), and once a recoloring option has been purchased it can be reapplied to any number of bows as often as desired. The bow can be coloured either white, yellow, blue or green, and once colour is applied the player can no longer trade or lend their bow. In order to remove colour, a cleaning cloth must be used on the bow. The cleaning cloth is made by using Karamja rum on a piece of silk, or you can buy it from the Grand Exchange.
