|Examine||A finely balanced throwing axe.|
The rune throwing axe, like all throwing axes, is a members-only Ranged throwing weapon and is the third most powerful type of throwing axe. To wield a rune throwing axe the player must have at least 50 Ranged.
They can be smithed with a Smithing level of 92 or higher from one runite bar, which produces five throwing axes. It can also be obtained by buying it from the Tribal Weapons store at the Ranging Guild, looting from a ninja impling, or trading with another player. As it is a one-handed projectile, the rune thrownaxe can be wielded with a shield for protection or an off-hand weapon for offence. Rune throwing axes are seldom used as a primary weapon, due to their slow attack speed, but they can deal decent damage to make up for this.
