Fire max cape detail.png

The fire max cape is a cape that is created by using a fire cape on a max cape. When the cape is created, the max hood that is required to be in the player's inventory during the cape's creation is automatically converted to the fire max hood.

Like the other max cape variants (a max cape combined with another cape slot item), the fire max cape does not have the max cape's stats or perks; it only acts as a cosmetic upgrade to the fire cape. However, the cape can still be used to perform the skillcape emote.

Mac is able to refund a max cape, along with its variants, for 1,821,600 coins each, as long as the player has both the hood and cape in their inventory. It is important to note that capes combined with the max cape will be lost upon refund and will need to be earned again.

Upon death in the wilderness (level 20 and above in the Wilderness) if you do not protect this item, it will be converted into coins when dropped.

If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 50,000 coins by using the item on Perdu.


  • Unlike the fire cape, the fire max cape's lava textures are not animated when dropped.
  • The fire max cape originally had a plain colour scheme of yellow, red and black. It was graphically updated on January 26, 2017 to include the lava texture[1], and revised a week later to make it brighter and to animate the lava flow[2].
