The Chaos Tunnels are a large dungeon network located in low-level Wilderness, north of Edgeville. It is in a members-only region. It does not require any quests to be accessed, although a safe route into the tunnels is unlocked during What Lies Below.

Although they are directly underneath the Wilderness, the tunnels themselves are safe, much like the King Black Dragon's lair. However, players cannot enter the tunnels through the Wilderness entrances while in combat.

A dwarf multicannon and counterparts cannot be taken into the tunnels; attempting to do will state that the cannon is too heavy to be taken in. This also includes the Dungeoneering cape's perk to teleport into the resource dungeon inside - the option will be disabled if any cannon item is found in the player's inventory.

Chaos Tunnels entrance locations

There are five rifts that allow entrance to the Chaos Tunnels. These are located:

Using the chaos transporter.

Dungeon Layout[edit | edit source]

Some of the inhabitants of the tunnels.

The dungeon consists of six "sections". As the name implies, the nature of the monsters are completely erratic and contain various out-of-place monsters such as dragons, demons and others. The chambers are separated, either through walls or collapsed areas that have to be navigated through by using portals in each chamber.

Note that not all portals work correctly, and there is a chance for the portal to misfire, sending the player to a random portal in the entire dungeon. The portal between the ice giants and Zamorak's followers appears to be completely broken and is a one-way teleport from the followers to the ice giants.

Monsters inhabiting the tunnels include:

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The portal use before the graphical update.
  • The Chaos Tunnels were mentioned long before their release in the What Lies Below quest. During the quest one of the Dagon'hai mentions that they have many more followers in other tunnels hidden beneath the Wilderness.
  • Originally, the warning sign info was the same as Tolna's Rift from A Soul's Bane.
  • Sometimes a robed figure known as Dark Squall will appear in the tunnels, randomly teleporting through the portals and shouting. During the While Guthix Sleeps quest, Dark Squall's true identity is revealed.
  • The caves with deadly red spiders (near Entrance #4) have several red spiders' eggs spawns. This is the only cave in the tunnels that spawns items.
  • Until the 1 February 2011 update to the Wilderness, entrances 4 and 5 used to be located further north, with 4 being north west of the Stealing Creation minigame and 5 found to the east of the level 13 Wilderness Obelisk.
  • From 00:00 UTC 12 November 2011 to 23:59 UTC 14 November 2011, there was an event where players could gain double loot from several dungeons, including the Chaos Tunnels. This was part of Jagex's bot-busting celebration.
  • When elite clue scrolls were released, the Chaos Tunnels were originally part of the scan locations players could encounter. This is no longer the case as of 10 July 2017, as it has been removed as a potential scan location.
