Powerburst potions are a type of potion introduced on 25 November 2019 with the Farming & Herblore 120 update. They have more powerful effects than normal potions but also last a much shorter amount of time, for 30 seconds or less. Using a powerburst potion triggers a global 2-minute cooldown on all powerburst potions. Both the modified botanist's mask and portable well potion duplication effects work when creating powerburst potions.

When powerburst potions were first released, all adrenaline potion variants were retroactively classified as powerburst potions, meaning that they shared the same 2 minute cooldown with all powerbursts. Due to complaints about adrenaline potions limiting the use of other powerburst potions, a later update on 13 July 2020 changed the powerburst of overkill to an adrenaline renewal potion and separated the cooldowns of adrenaline and powerburst potions.
