Team capes are Wilderness capes that can be purchased for 50 coins from cape merchants. Another player with the same team cape equipped will show up on the minimap as a blue dot rather than white, and the left-click "Attack" option will be moved to a right-click, as if the other player is of higher level than the player. If two players are wearing different team capes, then the "Attack" option for each other will both be left-click, regardless if one player has a higher combat level.
Team capes are popular in Wilderness Warbands to prevent accidentally attacking allied players. Team capes are a popular choice for free players due to its affordability, looks and decent bonuses. Drapes have slightly higher armour, but they only pertain to one combat style and have a style bonus for that style only, while team capes have the same style bonus for all styles. They have the highest Strength bonus of any free-to-play cape not locked behind limited-time events or account age requirements.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- If you take all the first letters from the wilderness cape merchants' names it will spell the word "WILDERNESS".
- Cape number 22 used to resemble the Saltire (St. Andrew's Cross), which made it popular among Scottish players. The worn model was changed to one which looked less like it, but the inventory image still matches the original worn model, and more closely matches the Saltire.
- Initially, grey team capes also existed, but were removed due to their likeness to the Cape of legends. They were later replaced by pink.
- Team capes were previously members only, but later became available to free players.
- Some team cape merchants were moved to make them accessible on F2P worlds when the capes became available to free players.
