Prop sword detail

The prop sword is a weapon first obtained as a reward from the 2018 Birthday event. It is the iconic sword seen in the logo of RuneScape from 2001 to 2007.

While equipped, players can right-click the sword in the Equipment Stats interface to perform an emote, in which players assume a fencing position and slash the air to create the letters "RS", the acronym for "RuneScape".

Despite being a sword, its combat styles are the same as those of a warhammer. It offers very large attack penalties and is nearly useless as an actual weapon. As such, it is allowed during "fun weapon" fights in the Duel Arena.

When wielded, a "Slash" option will appear on other players. Picking this option will cause the player to slash their target. The hit is just an animation and no damage is dealt, nor does it count as entering combat. There is a chance that players may "fumble" the sword, dropping it to the ground where it must be picked up.
