The duellist's cap is a hat obtained from Estocada in the north-eastern corner of Al Kharid. It keeps track of the number of kills that the wearer has achieved while duelling, both on F2P and P2P worlds. It has more detail for each milestone reached. As with the Wildstalker helmet, this cap gives the owner the ability to transform into a statue, which shows various PvP statistics of the owner, such as kills, deaths, and current streak of kills in a row. It also gives access to the emote by selecting 'Brag' when the hat is worn.

The cap can optionally be upgraded to a higher tier with a different appearance after a certain number of wins. Once the necessary threshold has been reached, right-click the cap and select "Change-look".

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If a player tries to transform into a statue while under attack, the following message appears: "It would be unwise to lower your defences." This is a reference to a Darth Vader quote from the Star Wars franchise.
  • When transformed, the wearer does not truly turn into a statue; the statue is spawned and placed over the player, temporarily hiding them.
  • If the hat is lost, when replacing it Estocada will say "I don't often replace hats, but when I do, I choose to replace duellists' caps." This is a reference to an Internet meme based on The Most Interesting Man in the World from Dos Equis beer commercials.
  • The duellist's cap records up to 250 kills in the kill streak. After this, it will not record further kills unless reset or the kill streak has ended.
