Combat Achievements (commonly abbreviated CA) are a set of combat-based tasks and challenges released on 21 July 2021. They are intended to test the player's prowess in combat related content, ranging from endurance challenges, killing monsters under a set time limit, and restriction based tasks in which players must kill a monster in a specific manner.

The overview interface for Combat Achievements can be accessed via the Character Summary tab.

A number of tasks can be done by free-to-play players, although every tier does include some tasks exclusive to members.

Tasks which check the player's boss kill count, as well as time-based tasks for The Gauntlet and Corrupted Gauntlet, are automatically completed if players have the achievements prior to the release of the Combat Achievements system.

Tiers[edit | edit source]

The main interface for Combat Achievements.

Combat Achievement tasks are split into six categories based on their difficulty: Easy, Medium, Hard, Elite, Master, and Grandmaster.

Task types[edit | edit source]

The tasks interface for Combat Achievements.

Tasks are sorted into categories based on the requirements. Most tasks within Combat Achievements will rely on the player's ability to complete them alone, though there are tasks which require multiple players to complete, such as tasks for the Chambers of Xeric, Theatre of Blood, and The Nightmare.

Task Type Description
Kill count Kill a monster a certain number of times.
Mechanical Defeat a boss in a way that hints at how players are supposed to fight the boss, or tasks the player to kill the boss in a specific, difficult way
Perfection Complete a task without taking damage or dying.
Restriction Complete a task under a set of restrictions.
Speed Kill a boss within a set timeframe.
Stamina Kill a boss for a certain amount of times without leaving the area.

Rewards[edit | edit source]

The rewards interface for Combat Achievements.

Players may claim their rewards by speaking to Ghommal by the entrance to the Warriors' Guild. Unlike Achievement Diaries, players do not need to complete all of the tasks of the previous tier before claiming a reward set for another tier; each reward tier requires having a certain amount of points before players can claim them. This means players can claim a tier's rewards through any combination of tasks, instead of having to complete a lower tier's tasks before being able to claim rewards from a higher tier.

Should new tasks be released, rewards for the appropriate tiers become unusable and unequippable until they are completed.

Tier Total points required Rewards
Combat Achievements - easy tier icon.png Easy 33
Combat Achievements - medium tier icon.png Medium 115
Combat Achievements - hard tier icon.png Hard 304
Combat Achievements - elite tier icon.png Elite 820
Combat Achievements - master tier icon.png Master 1465
Combat Achievements - grandmaster tier icon.png Grandmaster 2005

Scrapped rewards[edit | edit source]

An off-hand blade was proposed to be added as a reward for completing each tier of the Combat Achievements, which provided increased melee attack bonuses and increased with each tier of tasks completed.

The blade was polled in the Combat Achievements poll and failed to pass, only receiving 64.3% of the supporting votes. The item was later reworked as a teleport item, in the form of Ghommal's hilt. Later, the Grandmaster and Master hilts were updated to be able to be combined with the Avernic defender.

Unreleased models for a Hunllef slayer helmet by Mod West.[1]

In addition, models were made for a slayer helmet design based on the Crystalline and Corrupted Hunllef, though it was never offered as a reward.
