Hurricane is a two-handed threshold Attack ability that requires level 55 Attack to use. When activated, the player spins on the spot, dealing 66-219% ability damage to all targets in a 3x3 area of the player, including targets standing on the player's square. The player's main target is hit a second time for 84-161% ability damage; Hurricane deals an average of 265% ability damage to the player's main target. Targets standing behind walls are not damaged. Hurricane's cooldown is shared with Destroy.

Halberds, the noxious scythe, and the dragon rider lance increase Hurricane's range to 5x5 around the player. The dark ice sliver and dark sliver of Leng allow Hurricane to be used while dual wielding, and when combined with either the dark ice shard or dark Shard of Leng gives it a separate cooldown from Destroy.

Hurricane is fairly similar to Quake, however:

  • Hurricane deals far more damage due to its first hit having higher minimum damage and because it deals a second hit to the main target.
  • Hurricane does not reduce the target's defence or raise their affinity values.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the ability's name is "Hurricane", the symbol is of a tornado.
  • Hurricane used to deal 400% weapon damage, but due to a change in the beta which significantly increased damage of all weapons, this was reduced to 188% damage. With the release of Legacy Mode, Hurricane's damage was raised to a maximum of 219%. On 13 July 2015, a second hit was added to Hurricane that deals 84-161% weapon damage to the main target.
  • Hurricane was known as Whirlwind in Jagex's test servers for the Evolution of Combat.
