'''Weapons''' are [[Worn Equipment|wieldable]] [[items]] that a player can use to inflict damage in [[Combat]].
 
 
All players wield weapons in their right hand. If a player is using a two-handed weapon, such as a [[bow]] or a [[two-handed sword]], they may not have any items equipped in the [[Shield slot]] at the same time, thus two-handed weapons are held in both hands preventing the use of a [[shield]]. In the case of thrown weapons, which are stackable, multiples of the same thrown weapon may be equipped in the [[Weapon slot]] at once. A player may also equip a [[pickaxe]] or a [[Woodcutting]] [[axe]] in the weapon slot so that they may hold more [[ore]] or [[logs]], respectively.
 
 
==Basic melee weapons==
 
These weapons are more commonly used than the other weapons available because they don't have to be replaced unless upon [[death]], and they do not require ammunition to use unlike most [[Magic]] or [[Ranged]] weapons. Most types of basic [[Melee]] weapons come in eight different kinds of [[metal]].
 
 
Most weapons have a primary attack mode in all three [[attack styles]] and a secondary mode in the [[Aggressive (style)|Aggressive]] or [[Controlled]] style. The secondary mode is normally weaker, but it may be more appropriate to your target.
 
 
Chainmail armour is weaker against [[stab]]bing; platemail is weaker against [[crush]]ing, while the [[slash]] attack is highly effective against cloth, leather or unarmoured targets. Against monster hide, the most effective style varies. The only absolute [[Defence]] against a particular attack is the [[Protect from Melee]] prayer, or the occasional [[NPC]] that requires something special to kill them, so you will still hit with the "wrong" attack and weapon, just not as often and with less damage (or not even at all, in the case of monsters like [[vampyre]]s).
 
 
===Weapon groups===
 
Overall, there are four [[attack styles]]: accurate, aggressive, defensive, and controlled. The first three add a hidden bonus of +3 to attack, strength, and defence, respectively. Controlled adds a hidden bonus of +1 to each of the three melee combat stats. [[Stab]], [[Slash]], and [[Crush]] are the three possible damage types. Different damage types are more effective against different types of armour or monster.

===Weapon characteristics===
 
There are also a variety of 'novelty weapons' available. They deal out very little, if any, damage.
 
 
The various groups of weapons are summarised below. The level of [[Strength]] in each class is not definitive.

|[[Dagger]]
 
|Fast/Weakest
 
|Stab/Slash
 
|A [[dagger]] is the first item that can be [[Smithing|smithed]] in any [[metal]]. Generally (but not always), it has higher stats than a [[sword]] of the weaker metal. A dagger is tied in speed with the [[scimitar]] and [[shortsword]]. Daggers are primarily [[stab]]bing weapons although they have a decent [[slash]] attack. [[Pay-to-play|Members]] can [[poison]] daggers to great effect. [[Dragon dagger]]s are discoloured upon poisoning, making the tip of the dagger a bright green colour. A [[Dragon dagger (p++)]] is a very popular special attack weapon in general fighting and [[PvP]] [[combat]]; the [[Varrock Swordshop|store]] is located in south [[Varrock]].
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Axe]]
 
|Medium/Weak
 
|''Slash/Crush'' <ref name="italics">''Italics'' indicate decent effectiveness in a weapon's secondary style compared to its primary style. (Less than 20% difference in bonuses)</ref>
 
|Intended for [[Woodcutting]], but it can be used as a weapon. [[Bob's Brilliant Axes]] sells low-tier [[axe]]s up to [[Steel axe|steel]].
 
|-
 
|[[Pickaxe]]
 
|Medium/Weak
 
|''Stab/Crush'' <ref name="italics" />
 
|Intended for [[Mining]], but it can be used as a weapon. [[Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop]] sells [[pickaxes]] up to [[Rune pickaxe|rune]].
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Shortsword]]
 
|Fast/Medium
 
|Stab/Slash
 
|A [[Shortsword]] is able to hit higher than a [[dagger]] at the same attack speed although it cannot be poisoned. This makes it unpopular. However, players can find it useful as a sword is a cheap alternative to [[scimitars]] for [[rune weapons|rune]] and lower [[metal]]s; the [[Varrock Swordshop|store]] is located in south [[Varrock]].
 
|-
 
|[[Mace]]
 
|Medium/Medium
 
|Crush/Stab
 
|The [[crush]] attack is better against platemail, and the [[Prayer bonus]] can be useful. [[Mace]]s are slightly slower than the [[Shortsword]] and slightly weaker. It also features a [[Controlled]] [[stab]]bing attack. The [[Dragon mace]] is mainly used in [[player killing]] due to its [[special attack]]; the [[Flynn's Mace Market|store]] is located in [[Falador]].
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Scimitar]]
 
|Fast/Medium
 
|Slash/Stab
 
|A [[scimitar]] is an excellent [[slash]]ing weapon against cloth or leather and average against chainmail, but it is weak against platemail. It can hit just as fast as a [[shortsword]] or [[dagger]], and it deals slightly more damage than shortswords but less than [[longswords]]. The secondary [[stab]]bing attack is rather inefficient against some [[armour]], but better against chainmail. It is in the [[controlled]] style and yields equal experience to [[Attack]], [[Strength]], and [[Defence]]. The [[Dragon scimitar]] is one of the most popular weapons for [[PK]]ing along with the [[Abyssal whip]] and [[Dragon dagger (p++)]], and it's considered one of the most versatile combat weapons in the game although it doesn't have a very good Strength bonus. Nonetheless, the [[Rune scimitar]] is considered to be one of the best training weapons for [[Melee]] in a free world, and the Dragon scimitar is one of the best training weapons for [[member]]s whereas the whip lacks a way to train Strength; the [[Scimitar shops|store]] is located in [[Al Kharid]].
 
|-
 
|[[Longsword]]
 
|Medium/Strong
 
|''Slash/Stab'' <ref name="italics" />
 
|A [[longsword]] is slower than a [[scimitar]], [[shortsword]], and [[dagger]], but it has higher [[Strength]] and [[Attack]] bonuses, especially in terms of its [[controlled]] [[stab]] attack. Considered to be worse than the scimitar due to its lower speed, it has a considerably higher Strength bonus and higher [[slash]] and stab bonuses. It is described as the "warrior's best friend" on the ''RuneScape'' website. It was once considered the best weapon type before the scimitar's popularity outbreak although many high-levelled players still use the [[Dragon longsword]] due to its better stats than the [[Dragon scimitar]] and its substantially better [[special attack]]; the [[Varrock Swordshop|store]] is located in south [[Varrock]].
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Warhammer]]
 
|Slow/Strong
 
|Crush
 
|It is an uncommon [[crush]]ing-only weapon with no specialist store open to [[free-to-play|non-members]]. It's right in the middle of the [[Smithing]] scale for any [[metal]]. This weapon is good to dent other warriors' platemail. [[Warhammer]]s are not commonly used because of their low speed and mediocre [[Strength]] bonuses. They offer the same damage as their [[slash]]ing cousins, the [[battleaxe]]s; the [[Skulgrimen's Battle Gear|store]] is located in [[Rellekka]].
 
|-
 
|[[Battleaxe]]
 
|Slow/Stronger
 
|''Slash/Crush'' <ref name="italics" />
 
|It provides a better [[Strength]] bonus than the [[warhammer]] but not as effective in the secondary [[crush]] attack. [[Battleaxe]]s are stronger than [[longswords]] yet slower. A battleaxe is considered to be a rather effective [[PK]]ing weapon, but a quicker weapon, such as a [[Dragon scimitar]] or [[Abyssal whip]], fares better; the [[Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar|store]] is located in [[Port Sarim]].
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Two-handed sword]]
 
|Slowest/Second Strongest
 
|Slash/Crush
 
|A [[2h sword]] is the most powerful of the basic weapons, but it is also the slowest. Furthermore, as its name suggests, the two-handed sword cannot be used with a [[shield]]. It may be a good secondary weapon for the [[Ranged]] fighter as his/her [[bow]] cannot be used with a shield anyway. This weapon has no specialist store open to [[free-to-play|non-members]]; the [[Gaius' Two Handed Shop|store]] is located in [[Taverley]].
 
|-
 
|[[Halberd]]
 
|Slowest/Third Strongest
 
|Stab/Slash
 
|A [[halberd]] is equally about as slow as the [[two-handed sword]] and slightly less powerful, and a [[shield]] cannot be equipped with it. However, it can reach over small obstacles (such as tables, fences, other [[safespots]], etc.), which is known as "hallying".
 
|- class="altrow"
 
|[[Spear]]
 
|Medium/Medium
 
|''Stab/Slash/Crush'' <ref name="italics" />
 
|The [[stab]]bing equivalent of a [[two-handed sword]], this two-handed members-only weapon is one of only two classes in the game that can use all three [[attack styles]]. The [[spear]] has an average attack speed, features [[controlled]] style for each attack style, and all spears, excluding the [[Zamorakian spear]], can be [[poison]]ed. Its bonuses are not as high as other weapons', and the only way to train [[Attack]] or [[Strength]] with it is to use one of the controlled styles; the [[Tamayu's Spear Stall|store]] is located in [[Tai Bwo Wannai]].
 
|-
 
|[[Hasta]]
 
|Medium/Medium
 
|''Stab/Slash/Crush'' <ref name="italics" />
 
|This weapon is identical to the [[spear]] in every way except that it is a one-handed weapon compared to the two-handed spear and that it has negative [[Defence]] bonuses although this can be countered by wearing a [[shield]]. This weapon may also be [[poison]]ed except the [[Zamorakian hasta]].
 
|-
 
|[[Claws]]
 
|Fast/Medium
 
|Slash/Stab
 
|A [[member]]s-only weapon that is similar to the [[shortsword]], except that it is two-handed and is primarily a [[slash]]ing weapon. It cannot be poisoned.
 
|-
 
|[[Maul]]
 
|Slow(est)/Strongest
 
|Crush
 
|Does not follow the standard [[metal]] scale ([[Bronze]]-[[Dragon]]). It is also is two-handed. You usually get them either in [[granite]] or [[Obsidian maul|obsidian]].

The table above shows what level is needed to wield a certain [[metal]] and some specific weapons. The foot notes indicate additional skills and/or requirements as followed:
 
 
{{Reflist}}
 
 
Weapons are made of different metals, some stronger and more expensive than others. Higher [[Attack]] levels allow wielding weapons of better metals. For example, a player needs an Attack level of 10 to wield a [[Black weapons|black weapon]], whereas the player would need level 20 to wield a [[Mithril weapons|mithril weapon]]. Almost all metal weapons can be [[Smithing|smithed]], except for [[halberd]]s, and any [[Black]], [[White Knight equipment|White]], [[Dragon]], or [[Barrows]] weapons.
