Melee weapons are more commonly used than other weapons available, because they do not require ammunition to use, unlike most Magic or Ranged weapons. Most types of basic weapons come in eight different kinds of metal, while higher tiered weapons can be made from monster or boss drops.

Types[edit | edit source]

Melee weapons fit into many general categories. No type is superior to any other, as they vary in attack style, and speed/damage. In general, weapons of the same tier (eg: Steel) have the same damage per second ratio, with two-handed weapons dealing the combined damage of a one-handed weapon and its off-hand of the same tier.

Weapon Speed Type Availability Handedness Notes
Dagger Fastest Stab weakness icon.png Stab F2P Main/Off Hand The fastest and generally the cheapest of all melee weapons, making it a good choice for those on a budget. It is the first weapon that players can smith upon gaining access to a new metal.
Hatchet Fast Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Main Hand Intended for Woodcutting. It is not recommended to use either Hatchets or Pickaxes as weapons, as their damage-per-second is halved relative to other weapons of their level.
Pickaxe Average Crush weakness icon.png Crush F2P Main Hand Intended for Mining. It is not recommended to use either Hatchets or Pickaxes as weapons, as their damage-per-second is halved relative to other weapons of their level.
Sword Fast Stab weakness icon.png Stab F2P Main/Off Hand An uncommonly seen weapon. It is slower than the dagger, but hits harder to compensate, making it roughly as useful.
Mace Fastest Crush weakness icon.png Crush F2P Main/Off Hand Equally as fast as a dagger. However, maces are unique among other weapons of a given metal in that they carry a prayer bonus which makes them useful for those who make heavy use of Prayer, especially in player killing scenarios.
Scimitar Fastest Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Main/Off Hand A very popular weapon that can hit just as fast as a mace or dagger, but is also equally weak. Scimitars are, however, generally more expensive than daggers and maces and do not carry the latter's prayer bonus.
Longsword Fast Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Main/Off Hand Slower than scimitars, maces, and daggers, but can deal the same damage per hit as a shortsword of the same metal type, except with slashing impact instead of stabbing. Although its speed is slightly slower than that of a scimitar, its extra damage makes it just as suitable.
Warhammer Average Crush weakness icon.png Crush F2P Main/Off Hand A powerful weapon that sacrifices speed for damage per hit. It is not commonly used because of its slow speed.
Battleaxe Average Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Main/Off Hand Identical to a warhammer of the same metal type, except it causes slashing impact instead of crushing. Like the warhammer, the battleaxe's slow speed makes it an uncommon sight.
Two-handed sword Average Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Two-Handed One of the most powerful basic weapons, but it sacrifices both speed and the ability to be used with the off-hand slot, as its name suggests. However, it can be used with two-handed abilities, many of which can cause large amounts of damage.
Halberd Average Slash weakness icon.png Slash P2P Two-Handed This two-handed members-only weapon is equally strong (and slow) as a two-handed sword. It has the unique ability to reach over small obstacles (such as tables, fences etc.)
Spear Average Stab weakness icon.png Stab P2P
F2P(Dungeoneering only)
Two-Handed This two-handed members-only weapon serves as the stabbing equivalent of a two-handed sword.
Hasta Fast Stab weakness icon.png Stab P2P Main Hand This weapon is identical to the shortsword in every way, except that it does not have off-hand equivalents.
Claws Fastest Slash weakness icon.png Slash F2P Main/Off Hand A slashing weapon that is functionally identical to the scimitar, with the only differences being cosmetic.
Maul Average Crush weakness icon.png Crush P2P
F2P(Dungeoneering only)
Two-Handed These powerful two-handed weapons mainly appear in Daemonheim, though players can access other mauls such as the Granite maul or Tzhaar-ket-om. Also available is the Chaotic maul, a reward from Dungeoneering.
Whip Fastest Slash weakness icon.png Slash P2P Main Hand The whip is an uncommon weapon type that is functionally similar to a scimitar, in that it hits low for its level, but quickly to compensate for the relatively low hits. The most notable whip is the Abyssal whip, a level 70 weapon.
Rapier Fast Stab weakness icon.png Stab F2P Main/Off Hand Rapiers are primarily found in Daemonheim, though players can access other rapiers such as the Chaotic rapier and Drygore Rapier outside of Daemonheim. They are identical to shortswords in every aspect.
Defender Fastest Stab weakness icon.png Stab P2P Off Hand Defenders are off-hand equipment that provide both offensive and defensive bonuses. They are non-tradeable and can only be obtained sequentially starting from the lowest tier. Bronze through Dragon defenders can be obtained from the Warriors' Guild while higher tier defenders are made from boss drops.
