Barbarians are brawny attackable NPCs who are part of the Fremennik. Barbarians are generally located in Gunnarsgrunn (village west of Varrock, more commonly known as the Barbarian Village), and the Barbarian Outpost. Players may speak to barbarians, but they will almost always respond with hostility and ask you to fight them. Additionally, during battle, they may sometimes cry "FOR GUNNAR!"

Barbarians are usually fought by lower-levelled players for relatively easy experience. Although they hit low, they are somewhat accurate. Barbarians can have different weapons, most of which are non-existent for players.

A barbarian woman can be interviewed during the Barbarians v. Wizards court case.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Barbarians have unique names that can be seen by examining them. Many are references to the Nordic inspirations of the Fremennik, such as Brunnhilde, or Wotan, a variant of Odin.
    • Barbarians named Brunnhilde, Edelschwarz, Fafner, Alberich and Siegfried can be found at both the Barbarian Village and the Barbarian Outpost.
    • In Barbarian Village a barbarian with a sword is named Lydspor, Danish for Soundtrack. His examine describes him as "well-travelled", which may be a reference to how exploring the RuneScape world unlocks many music tracks.
  • Even though they are supposedly against magic, they drop runes very often.
  • Before the release of Gunnar's Ground, Barbarians used to yell a battle cry (YEEEEEEEEAARRRGGGGHHHHHHHH) which had sound.
  • Even the Barbarians at the Barbarian Outpost may sometimes yell "FOR GUNNAR", even though the player is nowhere near Gunnarsgrunn/Barbarian Village.
  • Female barbarians were previously known as barbarian woman, but an update changed this.
  • There used to be a female barbarian in the Blue Moon Inn before she was removed in an unknown update. She could be challenged to a shouting match by offering to buy her a drink.
  • Using a beer glass on one of the barrels in the Barbarian Outpost will cause the barbarians there to attack you.
