The bank key is a Deadman Mode item that allows 10 of the victim's most valuable items, based on Grand Exchange value, to be taken. It can be obtained by killing a player. The player that obtained the key can collect the items by opening a chest in a bank within a low-threat area, which means they must wait till their skull expires or risk being killed by the guards. These bank keys cannot be deposited into a bank, and only five bank keys can be in a players possession at any given time.
Players who attempt to destroy a bank key must wait for a 10 second countdown displayed in the chatbox, similar when attempting to teleport or log out. Players may cast High Level Alchemy or Low Level Alchemy on it to receive 0gp.
If a player kills a player who is in possession of another bank key, they will drop their own bank key in addition to their victim's bank keys. If a skulled player dies to a guard, 10 of their most valuable items from the bank are dropped wherever they die. Additionally, the player will lose 10% of all of their protected stats.
Players can insure up to ten items (ten single items, not 10 stacks of items) by speaking to the Financial Wizard and depositing the items in the safe deposit box. Items in the safe deposit box will not be lost, unlike those found in the bank, and can be collected any time the player visits the Financial Wizard.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- On 24 April 2018, there was a glitch where players could gain bank keys on non-Deadman Mode worlds. The bank keys had no use on these worlds. The glitch was fixed and Jagex removed the bank keys acquired from the glitch.
