Barge is a basic Attack ability, requiring level 30 Attack to use.

When activated, the player breaks free of all binds (but not stuns) and charges to their target, dealing 25-125% ability damage and binding them for 6.6 seconds. Barge has a maximum range of 10 squares.

Barge places the player within melee distance of his or her target, so it is useful for initiating combat with a faraway target and, in PvP, catching up to players attempting to flee.

The Mobile perk halves its cooldown to 10 seconds at the cost of gaining no adrenaline.


  • Until the 13 July 2015 patch notes, Barge shared a cooldown with Surge and Escape and could function as the melee version of those skills in the absence of a target.
  • Barge was named Charge in Jagex's test servers for the Evolution of Combat.
