Fire Giant Hunting Runescape Guide:
Equipment:
For the melee fighter:
  • Any one handed dragon weapon or halberd
  • Rune kite
  • Rune plate
  • Rune legs
  • Helm that best suits you
  • Climbing boots
  • Any gloves
  • Any cape
  • Any ring
Notes: They are weak against stabbing attacks so I recommend using a halberd or dagger, abyssal whip or full guthans would be a distinct help, guthans spear has a stab attack (it also heals your health if the special attack kicks in), whip is strong and fast.

For the ranger:
  • Full dragon hide(any, preferably black)
  • Magic bow/crystal bow (I suggest using a short for its special, but you can use any)
  • Arrows(either steel and upwards or ice, you get ice arrows from the temple of ikov quest)
  • Note: It seems to me that ice arrows are very effective agianst fire foes.

    For the mage (I wouldn't recommend using magic againt fire giants), though if you must, use some sort of water spell, iban's blast, or any of the god's spells; Flames of Zamorak, Claws of Guthix, Saradomin Strike.

    Locations
    Fire giants are spread out widely throughout runescape, they are located in the waterfall, karamja dragon dungeon and in members wilderness lvl 56. They can also be found deep in the Kharidian Desert
