Special attack[edit | edit source]

The bone dagger has a special attack, Backstab, (75%) which has a guaranteed hit if you weren't the last one to attack the target, and lowers the target's Defence by the amount of damage dealt, similar to the Bandos godsword's and Dorgeshuun crossbow's special attacks. Note that a successful Backstab can still deal 0 damage, as a guaranteed hit is not the same as guaranteed damage. This is because Backstab guarantees a success on the hit accuracy roll, but does not guarantee an above-zero value on the hit damage roll.

The special attack can only be used after completing the Death to the Dorgeshuun quest, but it can be wielded and poisoned without completing the quest.
