Bounty Hunter is a dangerous player-versus-player minigame that takes place in the Wilderness. It was released on 14 November 2016. In it, players may fight assigned targets (bounty kills) or any player that they see (rogue kills).

The re-released Bounty Hunter uses elements from the original Bounty Hunter system, as well as Bounty Hunter worlds.


Bounty Hunter can be played on two dedicated worlds. One world, 106, is for the Evolution of Combat combat mode and the other, 97, is for Legacy Mode. On these worlds players are restricted to only being able to enter Edgeville, the Varrock Grand Exchange, and the Wilderness.

When logging into a Bounty world players gain the option to join or leave the queue for being assigned a target. After being assigned a target a hint arrow showing the target's direction is shown to help the player find them. Upon unlocking a spell, the player is able to teleport directly to their opponent. When the player doesn't have a target assigned they are able to gain rewards by fighting other players who are not a target, though reward points are earned at a lower rate in this way.

Players' bounty targets are assigned based on having similar Matchmaking Ratings. Players' Matchmaking Ratings place them inside brackets of players with similar skills who they are most likely to be matched against. The difference between bounty targets' ratings depend on how long the players have been waiting - with a larger difference being used the longer the players have been waiting for a target.

Matchmaking Rating (MMR) is an ELO based system, rewarding players for fighting others closer to their skill level. Players start with a MMR of 1,500. More rating is gained for defeating a stronger opponent and more rating is lost when being defeated by a weaker opponent. Fighting the same player continuously prevents the player from gaining rating for some time. MMR is used to match up players who want to fight; there is also a rating which the player is ranked on the highscores.

There are 14 leagues named after the different kinds of revenants: initially there will be only the Imp League, from 0-1,500 rating; the Goblin League, from 1,501-1,999 rating; the Icefiend League, from 2,000-2,999 rating; and the Pyrefiend League, with at least 3,000 rating. From then on one new league will be introduced each week until all 14 are live. The players' league is recalculated each week.


Rewards from Bounty Hunter come from upgrading and cashing in bounty emblems received from player drops. Once obtained, the player must hold the emblem in their inventory as a kill is made for a chance to upgrade it. The chance of an emblem upgrading is more likely when killing an opponent of a high rating and when the emblem has not upgrade on previous opportunities. Rogue kills may also upgrade emblems, but less often than bounty kills.
