Special attack

A player using the dragon battleaxe's special attack, Rampage.

The dragon battleaxe has a special attack, Rampage; when toggled, the player character immediately hefts the weapon above their head, consuming 100% of their special attack energy. This drains the player's Attack, Defence, Ranged, and Magic levels by 10%, while increasing their Strength level by [10 + (levels drained / 4)]. The strength boost is comparable to that of a super strength potion. However, depending on the player's combat levels and preexisting boosts, it can raise strength by up to +21.

This accounts for the popularity of this weapon; although it is seldom used in combat, it is entirely possible to use Rampage for a strength boost and then revert to a primary melee weapon. The drained stats can be recovered using a restore potion.

Alternatively, drinking from a fancy/ornate rejuvenation pool eliminates the hefty stat penalties and special energy cost of Rampage while retaining the strength boost.


  • With the highest possible levels and boosts, 120/99 Strength is achieved using this weapon's special attack.
