Orks are stocky, green-skinned humanoids and some of the most prominent soldiers in Bandos' former armies. They have large tusks protruding from their jaws, and prefer to use large axes or maces in battle.
Orks can be found in the God Wars Dungeon, in the army of Bandos. These Orks are notable as the most reliable soldiers in the army of Bandos, as they can hit up to 340. Players should also beware that if they kill an ork, all nearby Orks and other Bandos followers will become aggressive to the player. Also, if players have dealt damage to an ork which is eventually slain by other monsters, the orks around would still become aggressive. The strength of the ancient Orks is unusual, but all of the recently-thawed combatants in the dungeon are stronger than their modern versions. It is unknown if they truly worship Bandos as their patron god, were forced into service like the goblins, or simply fight out of entertainment rather than loyalty or necessity.
Orks were in the beta of RuneScape 2 before it was released. There existed one ork (spelled "Orc") in the Tree Gnome Village Maze, but it was removed in January 2005 with the Creature of Fenkenstrain update.
Undead versions of the Orks, known as Revenant orks, can be found in the Forinthry Dungeon. They are the ghosts of Orks that were slain in the God Wars. They are much more powerful than their combat level suggests, able to hit hard and perform surprising tricks (see the article for more information).
