A Battleaxe is a one-handed slash weapon. They possess high damage ratings, but have a relatively slow attack speed. Players can buy battleaxes at Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar in Port Sarim, at Bob's Brilliant Axes in Lumbridge, or at the Grand Exchange, or from trading with other players.

Battleaxes have a damage bonus tied with their crushing counterpart, the warhammer.

In RuneScape Classic, they were stronger than swords but not as accurate. Battleaxes were pointed before the RuneScape HD graphics update, then became rounded in RuneScape High Detail. All battleaxes outside of Daemonheim received a complete graphical overhaul with the release of the Evolution of Combat.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the God letters, Zamorak mentions his favourite weapon is his bloodied battleaxe and he likes the sight of it embedded in someone's skull.
  • Formerly, only the Dragon battleaxe and Corrupt dragon battleaxe appear to have a shapened blade. All the battleaxes from ranging from Bronze to Rune appeared to have a very dull and blunt blade. This is no longer the case since they received a graphical rework.
  • The battleaxes used in Dungeoneering were the first battleaxes to have an updated chop attack. Before the Evolution of Combat, they were also faster than regular battleaxes (equivalent speed to longswords).
