Bigger and Badder

Superior slayer monsters are more powerful versions of normal slayer monsters that have a 1/200 chance to spawn upon the death of one of its normal counterparts[1]. They can be encountered after purchasing the unlock Bigger and Badder for 150 Slayer reward points from any Slayer master, and will only occur while on-task. This can be toggled on and off afterwards without loss of points.

When a superior slayer monster spawns, a message will appear in the chatbox, stating "A superior foe has appeared..." Killing a superior slayer monster will reward players with a greater amount of Slayer experience compared to what would be earned from the normal slayer monster. They will also give three rolls on their lesser counterpart's drop table. Once a superior slayer monster has spawned it is only attackable by the spawning player. A superior monster will despawn from the world if ignored for 2 minutes[2].

In addition, once one has appeared, another one will not spawn for that player until it is killed or despawns. In multicombat areas, it is possible for multiple superior slayer monsters to appear simultaneously if multiple monsters are killed at the same time.


Superior slayer monsters are guaranteed to drop an ensouled head (if applicable) and dark totem pieces (when killing one within the Catacombs of Kourend). Players will also be ten times more likely to receive a clue scroll from killing one. In addition, superior slayer monsters have three unique drops shared among all superior slayer monsters:

Drop rateEdit

The chance of rolling the unique drop table is 1 in 200 - [(x + 55)^2]/125, where x is the slayer level required to kill the slayer monster.

If the players rolls the unique drop table, there is then a 1/8 chance of receiving the imbued heart, and a 7/16 chance of receiving the battlestaves.
