Dragon battleaxe detail

The dragon battleaxe is the strongest battleaxe that can be used outside of Daemonheim. It can only be wielded by members who have at least 60 Attack and who have completed the Heroes' Quest. It can be bought in the Heroes' Guild for 200,000 coins or as a reward from a Gold Chest in the Shades of Mort'ton minigame. However, it is advised that players buy this weapon from the Grand Exchange in Varrock or another player as prices are normally lower.

For a long time this weapon had the highest damage rating for all one-handed weapons but has since been surpassed by Korasi's sword, Statius's warhammer, Vesta's longsword, chaotic longsword/rapier, and the Drygore longsword/Rapier. It's worth noting, however, that all these degrade (with the exception of Korasi's sword), making the dragon battleaxe a better choice for some scenarios.

Special AttackEdit

The Dragon battleaxe has a special attack called Rampage. It requires 100% adrenaline and the player deals 20% more melee damage while their hit chance and defence are lowered by 10%. The effect lasts for sixty seconds.

Although not mentioned in the special attack description, an effect is shown where the player has reduced adrenaline gain while the special attack is in use.

In Legacy Mode, the special attack gives the player a berserk buff which lasts for around a minute and lowers the player's Attack whilst boosting their Strength level. In combination with a powerful two-handed weapon such as the noxious scythe, the player can deal immense amounts of damage such as over 9000, making the special attack very potent in PvP situations.


  • The player shouts "Raarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!" as the special attack is performed.
  • In the 2012 Winter Weekends during week 5, it was a possible drop from the snowmen raids.
