Dust devils are unusual creatures which suck in rocks and dust through their tails, before exhaling the debris at attackers through their mouths. To fight them requires level-65 Slayer, and the use of face protection such as a face mask, slayer helmet or Mask of Dust, otherwise they will rapidly drain the player's stats and inflict damage at a high rate.

Dust devils are located in the Smoke Dungeon east of the Desert Bandit Camp, as well as a chamber of the Chaos Tunnels. They are famed for their rarest drop, the dragon chainbody, as well as a good drop rate for crimson charms.


Dust devils are weak against crushing attacks, but any mid-level or high-level melee weapon should be effective. Depending on skill levels and available equipment, players might opt to dual-wield a dragon mace/off-hand dragon mace, or a Saradomin sword.
