The Black Chinchompa is the strongest type of Chinchompa. It is caught with the hunter skill at level 73 or higher, and the fastest hunter experience rates in the game. Additionally, Chinchompas are a very sought after ranged supply, as such they always hold a high value, making this a profitable way to train hunter to 99.

Requirements to catch Black Salamanders?


  • Tank gear (no more than 4 valuable items – protect item prayer active).
  • Food/supplies to tank PKers from level 33 to level 30 wilderness.
  • Royal seed pod or glory to teleport at level 30 wilderness.

Where to catch Black Chinchompas?

Black Chinchompas are found south-east of the Lava Maze. They can only be caught in this one location, which is in at level 33 wilderness, so be wary of PKers. The fastest methods to get there include:

  • Edgeville canoe to level 33 wilderness (axe required)
  • Burning amulet teleport to Lava Maze and run south-east
  • Wilderness obelisk (level 35) teleport and run east
  • Ferox Enclave teleport and run north

Tank Gear Setup

Below is an image of the recommended gear to tank to optimise your defence. This will help you be able to easily escape PKers and keep your chins. It is recommended to bank your chins around every 300 – 500 if you care about keeping them, just to be safe.

Dealing with PKers

Magic Defence is a main priority to prevent players landing a freeze on you. Closely followed by maintaining high levels of range/melee defence as you can see with the recommended gear.

The staff of the dead has a special attach that will half all of your opponents melee damage, lasting for one minute. So make sure to use the special attack if you are attacked.

Since the hunter area is very close to the 30s teleport line it should be very easy to escape. However, if your opponent does manage to land a teleblock, you should run west to the bandit camp mine. Try to gain aggro from one of the hobgoblins and wait for the teleblock to wear off. You can also brew your stats to 0 with brews once you have gained aggro.

Making effective use of the prayer skill for its overhead protection prayers will also maximise your ability to survive. Correctly praying protect from magic on a teleblock will halve the duration of the block if it successfully lands. In addition to correct protection prayers greatly reducing the damage taken.

Black Chinchompas Experience Rates

At level 73 hunter, players can expect around 145,000 hunter exp per hour. At level 80 this scales to around 180k and at 99 players can get 220k exp per hour. However, this is all without the use of any tick manipulation methods. Players can use 3-tick hunter to scale experience rates up to 280k at level 99.

3-tick Hunter

As previously mentioned, 3-ticking your box trap placements can increase hunter experience rates significantly. For this you will need to use a Teak/Mahogany log on a knife or you can use guam/tarromin/marrentill on swamp tar (with a pestel and mortar in inventory). Below is a video example of how 3-tick hunter looks.

Money making with Black chinchompas

Black Chinchompas are a multi-target ranged weapon, because of this they are capable of producing some of the highest ranged experience rates in the game. As such, they always hold a high value. It is possible to make between 1 million and 1.5 million gp per hour hunting black chinchompas on average.
