The Armadyl godsword is one of the four variants of the Godsword that was fought over during the God Wars. It is created by using an Armadyl hilt, obtained from Kree'arra, on a completed godsword blade. As with all godsword variants, it requires level 75 Attack to wield.
Players can attach an Armadyl godsword ornament kit, obtained from master clue scrolls, to cosmetically enhance the godsword, creating an Armadyl godsword (or). This only alters its appearance, and gives no stat enhancements. Doing so also makes the weapon untradeable. Dismantling the sword will return both the Armadyl godsword and the ornament kit.
A player uses The Judgment, the Armadyl godsword's special attack
Like all godswords, the Armadyl godsword has a special attack, The Judgment. In addition to doubled accuracy, it inflicts damage with a 37.5% (125% multiplied by the hidden 110% every godsword special possesses, the calculation uses integer values after the multiplication of 1.1 the value gets rounded down and then multiplied by 1.25) higher maximum hit than a normal attack, consuming 50% of the player's special attack energy.
The Judgment is capable of dealing a very large amount of damage; under ideal conditions, a player can potentially deal over 70 damage to a monster with the special attack, or just over 90 damage when utilising the effects of a black mask or a Castle wars bracelet. Because of this, the Armadyl godsword is very popular for many combat situations. In PvP scenarios the Armadyl godsword is most commonly used as a "knock-out" weapon, as the special is often capable of finishing an injured player in one large blow. In PvM scenarios its high hits are advantageous when fighting boss monsters such as General Graardor, especially when several players are competing to deal the most damage in order to secure a drop.
The special attack animation's colours can be changed to gold, which costs 100 Bounty Hunter points. Once unlocked, the gold trim can be toggled at the Bounty Hunter Shop whenever the player desires.

|The accurate attack style of the Godswords has been adjusted to use slash rather than crush. As the slash attack bonus on Godswords has always been higher than the crush bonus, having the accurate attack style of the weapons use slash rather than crush means that the accurate attack style takes advantage of the best offensive bonus of the weapon.

- The Accurate combat mode of godswords has been changed from 'Stab' to 'Crush', since godswords have no stab-attack bonus
- Godswords will now pop up a confirmation box when you try to dismantle them
- The Armadyl godsword weighs 1 kg more than the other godswords; this is due to the fact that the hilt is heavier.
