RuneScape 1-99 Hunter Guide

Absolutely love the Skill of Hunter, but still stuck at level 50? Or just hate the skill and wanna get 99 as fast as possible. Whatever the case is, this will ensure 99 Hunter as fast as possible.

Hopefully you know what Runescape is if your searching up guides for it, but incase you don’t know what it is, Runescape is a Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game played directly from your browser.

There are two type of way you can play the game, F2P (free-to-play) and P2P (pay-to-play). Hunter happens to be a P2P skill, or Member’s Skill. It was released on the 21st November, 2006 and has proven to be one of the lowest stats that people have a 99 for.

Before you read the Guide

To be able to get 99 isn’t a stroll in the park, it requires determination and time. Also, all items should be bought at the Grand Exchange, if not, then at Yanille Hunter Store. Do not bait or smoke traps.

The Guide:

Levels 1-10, Crimson Swifts


Bird Snares (always bring more than you need)


Make your way to Fedlip Hills by either teleporting to Castle Wars and walking, or using Fairy Rings AKS. Once there, walk towards the South-East corner. DO NOT GO INTO OO’GLOG. One you see the Crimson Swifts, set up your trap. Your traps will fail almost 80% of the time and it will seem like ages before level 2, let alone 9 comes. But the whole skill of Hunter requires PATIENCE. Drop all loot you get.

Levels 10-19, Copper Longtails


Bird Snare (always bring more than you need)

Wood Camo Top (Optional, though I’d advise it) Wearing Wood Camo gear gives a higher catch rate

Wood Camo Bottom (Optional, though I’d advise it) Wearing Wood Camo gear gives a higher catch rate


Make your way just west of the Falconer (south of Picatoris Fishing Colony), and there you will spend some time getting 19 Hunter. The best way to get there is Fairy Rings AKQ, then go south. One you see the Copper Longtails, set up your trap and be patient to get level 19. Again, it will seem like eternity because the Copper Longtails are harder to catch, but level 19 will come. Drop all loot.

Level 19-29, Tropical Wagtails


Bird Snare (at level 20 you can set 2 traps, so bring 4 Bird snares)

Jungle Camo Top (Optional, though I’d advise it)

Jungle Camo Bottom (Optional, though I’d advise it)


Make your way again to Fedlip Hills by either teleporting to Castle Wars and walking, or using Fairy Rings AKS and walking South-West. Once you see the Tropical Wagtails, set up your Bird Snares and continue. At level 20, you can set up 2 traps, this will make the process to level 29 a tiny bit faster. This will be the last bird you hunt, so you can shed a tear if you want. Drop all Loot.

    Awesome guide. I didn’t like how you have to keep going back and forth from the Shanty to the hunting spots for orange salamanders. You should put in there about the Dealing with Sacrabas can be completed for an enchanted water tiara, which would let you stay out there without any water.

    This guide is horrible. I got 1-62 in one day doing 1-19 crimson swifts then I went off to 19-62 at Tropical Wagtails.

    At 63, I hunted Red Chinchompas, reaching 70 in 2 days and 99 in just over 3 weeks.

    This is a pathetic attempt at a guide and the “surprise” at the end, I feel horrible for those who followed.

    Ive looked at this guide carefully, and seeing that he has put a bit of effort into this, you may not think of his guide to be good, but dont flame as he’s put his time into attempting to help others. Id reccomend jumping right to Chinchompas if you dont have much money.



  12. Posted October 30, 2009 at 10:37 pm

    actually u get 42m from 1 to 99

    I’ll recommend that from 10-19 instead of doing only copper longtails take a butterfly net and at lvl 15 hunt some butterflies.

    Good guide ;)

    Spotted Kebbits from lvls 43-59 is much faster than doing swamp lizards to 47 and then orange to 59. Just saying. Orange lizards are much slower since you catch them slower and have to make trips to shantay.

    i bring 15 waterskins to the desert and im at lvl 57 now and only had to have 1 trip so far, im guessing only one more trip till 60 and the trips take less than 2 min, so it really doesnt matter.
