The barrelchest anchor is obtained after killing Barrelchest in The Great Brain Robbery quest. 60 Attack and 40 Strength are required to wield it. Players receive this item in a broken state and must pay Smith on the docks of Mos Le'Harmless a fee of 230,000 coins to repair the anchor. Note that Book o' piracy is needed to properly speak with Smith. If it is lost, players can retrieve another damaged anchor from Brother Tranquility or purchase a repaired one from Perdu for 290,000 coins.

The barrelchest anchor's stats are almost equal to Dharok's greataxe. It is well known as a PKing weapon, used in combos such as anchor to Granite maul specials.
