|Examine||Penance Fighter torso armour.|
A fighter torso or penance torso (as listed on the rewards screen of the Barbarian Assault minigame), is a piece of members-only armour. To wear one, a player must have at least 40 Defence. A fighter torso can be obtained by exchanging 375 honour points in all four roles and after killing the Penance Queen at least once in the Barbarian Assault minigame.
The armour is a popular replacement for players who cannot afford either a bandos chestplate or full bandos armour, or do not feel that the chestplate is worth the extra money for the same strength. As of the 19 January 2010 Barbarian Assault Update, a fighter torso can now be picked up from a player's gravestone if they should die with it. In addition, you can bank multiple fighter torsos, as well as other penance items you win.
It can be used for a ranged hybrid, as it does not have any ranging negatives, although actual ranged armour provides both a mediocre defence bonus and a decent ranged attack bonus, while most melee armour only provides a lot of defence. This is why this torso is not used frequently by rangers.
On the 19 January 2010 Barbarian Assault update, the fighter torso's bonuses were made equal to the rune platebody. Within 2 hours after the update, another update was issued and the torso was restored to its previous bonuses, along with the +4 strength.
When dropped in a pvp situation the torso becomes 30,000 coins.
