The airut are a boar-like bipedal race who follow the similarly boar-like goddess Tuska. They typically live on Tuska's back, riding and controlling her with massive reins. They were named after an ancient warrior by the Naragi when their homeworld was attacked by the Airut and Tuska.
They came to Gielinor via portals, signalling Tuska's upcoming arrival, and can be fought as level 92 Slayer monsters west of the Phoenix Lair in the Piscatoris Hunter area (a•k•q)and in Kuradal's dungeon. They drop the level 90 melee power armour gloves, razorback gauntlets, as well as pieces of the tuska mask and Kaigi's journal.
Airuts have access to two combat styles, melee and ranged, the style used depending on which stance they are in. When meleeing, they stand on their hind legs and attack by punching. When ranging, they stand on all-fours and spit corrosive bile at the player. Airuts try to find the weakness of the player and use it to their advantage, similarly to Revenants, and they will switch between combat styles if prompted to do so (e.g if the player changes armour or activates protection prayers).
Both of their attack styles deal around 600 damage, but in either style the Airut can initiate a short berserk mode where they will deal inaccurate, but rapid and powerful damage to the player, continuing to use the same attack style as they were in at the time. An animation signals this: when ranging, the Airut will take one of its arms away from the ground and beat its chest, and when meleeing it will beat its chest with both arms.
This attack can be disabled via the use of the Rapid-Fire (Ranged) or Flurry (dual-wield Melee) threshold abilities. After being hit by one of the aforementioned abilties, they will be stunned for six ticks while they catch their breath, and successful attacks dealt to them have doubled damage. Alternatively, the attack can be temporarily delayed by using a stun - useful if a player doesn't have enough adrenaline for a threshold - but this only works while they're still roaring, once they begin the attack, they become immune to stuns. Also note that the berserk attack is not a combo attack, so walking underneath the Airut and causing it to move will not cancel the attack. Ranged is especially useful as well as ranged protection prayers. Crossbows from Karils and up help speed up damage.
A player must be cautious if using Flurry, as the ability may hit nearby airuts. This is especially dangerous in Kuradal's Dungeon, where the monsters are close together.
Knock-out aura is useful as it gives higher chances to kill an opponent with low health, speeding up the kills.

- In Finnish, the word airut means 'harbinger'.
- Despite their examine text, they are not aggressive.
- Airuts do not have their own unique slayer icon. They currently share the same slayer icon as the Scutarius, which is most likely an oversight from Jagex.
