Zombies are a form of undead found all over Gielinor, appearing most often in graveyards, dungeons, and tombs. Like Skeletons, they are the result of Necromancers reanimating the bodies of the dead.

Zombies have a wide variety of combat levels and appearances, but they generally attack with melee and have a low resistance to magical attacks, particularly fire spells.

Many types of zombies exist, including armoured zombies, undead ones, zogres, zombie hands, monkey zombies, zombie pirates, zombie swabs, and dried zombies. When given a Slayer assignment for zombies, any zombie-class creature may be targeted, including undead chickens and cows.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Many zombie locations are far from banks. These locations are close to banks:

  • Low-level zombies
  • Medium-level zombies
    • The lair of Tarn Razorlor has a banker. However, using this dungeon requires the completion of the Haunted Mine quest and Lair of Tarn Razorlor miniquest, and a 100 coin fee to the banker for each access to the bank.
    • The zombie cave in the Chaos Tunnels is easily accessed from entrance #1 to tunnels and is thus moderately close to the Edgeville bank. However, care should be taken because entrance #1 is in low-level Wilderness and also enters the cave with rather dangerous Gargoyles. Aggressive Skeletons in the cave with the zombies may interfere with zombie hunting.

Champion's Challenge[edit | edit source]

Zombies are one of the 'races' who have a lesser champion in the Champion's Challenge Distraction and Diversion. To fight the Zombie Champion, the player must kill zombies until one drops a Champion's scroll, a very rare drop.

While Undead Ones count towards a zombie slayer task, they do not drop Champion's scrolls.

Drops[edit | edit source]

The level 22 zombies in the Edgeville Dungeon and the Graveyard of Shadows only drop bones and nothing else. Level 22 zombies elsewhere have regular drops.

100% drop[edit | edit source]

Main drop[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ Dropped by zombies in Entrana dungeon.

Tertiary drops[edit | edit source]

  1. ^ Dropped during the Rag and Bone Man wish list

Rare drop table[edit | edit source]

This monster has access to the rare drop table.
Luck-enhancing items are not required to access the table but they will increase the chance of accessing the rare drop table and may also improve the loot received from it.

Mod Timbo: "1/1280 if you hit the RDT, requires T4 luck to be worn in order to get a hold of it. Of course there are tons of different ways to access the RDT so it changes massively depending on what you're fighting, what you're wearing etc."
  2. ^ Indicates a failed 1/10 roll for Hazelmere's signet ring.
  3. ^ Indicates a roll for Hazelmere's signet ring without tier 4 luck.
  4. ^ Requires tier 4 luck. Rarer than the vecna skull.

Universal drops[edit | edit source]

Universal drops are dropped by nearly every monster outside of Daemonheim.
These items are dropped alongside main drops.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 25 March 2009 (Update):
    • Stopped a zombie from playing a human animation that made it appear to explode briefly. Zombies in RuneScape have enough to worry about without an irrational fear of spontaneous combustion.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • During the 2010 Hallowe'en event, hordes of zombies would spawn in the ruins in the Clan Wars free-for-all arena. Those zombies did not give experience when killed.
  • One of the various examines for a zombie is "Could his name be 'Lurch'?" This is a reference to the butler in The Addams Family, Lurch.
  • An update on 12 April 2010 made the sound of the zombies when they get hit much deeper than previously.
  • Zombies drop fishing bait commonly. It is revealed in Let Them Eat Pie and Recipe for Disaster that fishing bait is actually maggots, which are often found on corpses.
