The deathtouched dart (sometimes called the instakill dart) is an item that, when equipped, can instantly kill any enemy hit with it. Each dart can only be used once and they will not work on players. To use a dart, players must equip it. Once equipped, the player's next attack will instantly kill the target.

The darts were available as prizes from Balthazar's Big Raffle for all members during September 2014. Previously, the darts were obtained by using the fate cards - a reward from the Choose Your Fate promotion to all players who had been members for both August and September 2012. From these, each player could obtain a maximum of four darts which expired at the end of the 31st December, 2012.

The deathtouched dart has some usage exceptions. The darts cannot be used in Dungeoneering, or on any of the following NPCs:

Players are also prevented from throwing darts at Slayer creatures they do not have the level for, but they can boost to use darts if they wish, matching normal methods.

The darts can be used on Vorago, but this skips a phase rather than outright killing him. Darts used on Araxxor in any phase will skip the player onto the Araxxi fight, and a second dart may then be used on Araxxi. Note that this item cannot be used on enemies with multiple forms (historically this was allowed but it skipped any dialogue options or cutscenes occurring between the form changes).

Deathtouched darts cannot be used to meet completionist cape requirements, such as achieving boss kills towards 'the Reaper' title, nor will they unlock 'the Defeater' title from Vorago. They also cannot be used to reach fast times for the Boss Timer.
