Hellhounds Strategy

Fastest XP

Since there are no multicombat cannonable areas with hellhounds, it is recommended to melee or ranged hellhounds while using a cannon. A fast way to kill them is by safespotting in the Stronghold Slayer Dungeon while using a cannon. The cannon attacks as if it's multicombat when you're in a safespot.


AFK Training

For the most AFK training, players can use a cannon and stand underneath it. This only lures the monsters, and doesn't use as many cannonballs. Hellhounds are also aggressive, so they can be AFKed for 10 minutes without a cannon.


Most Profit

For the most profit on a hellhounds task, you should kill Cerberus. The boss nets over 2M gp/hr and is the most profitable way to complete a hellhounds task. Cerberus requires 93 slayer to fight.
