Craw's bow is a shortbow once owned by Craw, one of the more formidable followers among Armadyl's forces during the God Wars. It can be received as a drop from revenants found within the Revenant Caves. This item counts as an Armadyl item in the God Wars Dungeon.
The bow requires a Ranged level of 60 to wield, and shares the same bonuses as the magic shortbow (i) with the ranged strength of dragon arrows, although it does not have a special attack. It has to be charged with revenant ether to be fired, but it does provide its own ammo, similar to the crystal bow. It also has a powerful passive effect within the Wilderness.
The bow's fired shots are coated in a yellow-orange aura, similar to the crystal bow. The bow has an attack range of 9. Longrange increases attack range by 1.
Players can dismantle an uncharged bow to receive 7,500 Revenant ether, resulting in 1,125,000 and a loss of -6,439,829 coins.

Passive effect[edit | edit source]
When Craw's bow is charged with revenant ether, an additional 50% ranged accuracy and damage boost is applied when attacking any NPC in the Wilderness, consuming 1 ether per attack whether the player hits or not.
This effect will stack with a slayer helmet or a salve amulet and their variants, but not both simultaneously. This makes it the strongest ranged weapon in the Wilderness, surpassing the damage output of a toxic blowpipe with dragon darts.
Charging and death[edit | edit source]
In order to use the bow, it must first be activated with 1,000 revenant ether (costing 150,000). The 1,000 ether used to activate the bow does not count towards the ammo usage of the bow, thus additional ether must be added (up to 16,000) in order to fire it. Using bow requires revenant ether whether inside the wilderness or not, but the 50% ranged accuracy and damage boost only applies while inside the wilderness.
The Craw's bow uses 1 revenant ether per shot and fires 2000 shots per hour on the rapid attack style. Thus the hourly cost of constantly using this weapon is 2,000 ether or 300,000 on Rapid, or 1,500 ether or 225,000 on Accurate/Longrange.
The ether can be safely removed by selecting the right-click Uncharge option on the bow, after which the bow becomes tradeable again.
Upon death within the Wilderness, any revenant ether stored as ammo within the bow will always be dropped and the initial 1,000 activation ether will always disappear, even if it is one of the player's protected items. Therefore, dying with an activated bow incurs a minimum loss of 1,000 ether. Despite the bow being able to store a maximum of 17,000 revenant ether, it is recommended to store the minimum amount required for a trip into the Wilderness (in addition to the 1,000 ether required to activate the weapon).

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The name of the weapon is an oronym to the Crossbow weapon type.
- Upon release, Craw's bow had a starting Grand Exchange price of 10,000,000 coins. This was manually adjusted to 100,000,000 coins on 1 August after frequent luring in the Wilderness via dropping items whose prices on the Grand Exchange were more than the bow itself. As the game prioritises the protection of items that have the highest price on the Grand Exchange, the player may end up losing the bow by picking up an item worth slightly more than the bow on the Grand Exchange, which was worth around 360 million coins at the time.
