The dragon 2h sword is one of the strongest two-handed swords in Old School RuneScape, requiring level 60 Attack to wield. The dragon 2h sword requires no quest to wield. Because of its slow attacking speed and the fact that it cannot be used with a shield or defender, many players prefer using other dragon weaponry instead, such as the dragon scimitar.

It is dropped by most Wilderness bosses and the Kalphite Queen.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performing the dragon 2h sword's special attack, Powerstab.

The dragon 2h sword has a special attack, Powerstab, which consumes 60% of the player's special attack energy. When used in a multi-combat area, the attack hits all targets within 1 square of the player, including the one they are standing on; no more than 14 NPCs or three players can be hit at one time with this attack. However, there are no advantages when using this attack in a single-combat area.

It can be especially useful while training in multi-combat areas, like those where one may fight Bandits or Skeleton Monkeys. The attack is also useful in Nightmare Zone, when used in with the "Power Surge" power-up that gives the player temporary infinite special attacks. This allows the player to deal massive amounts of damage to many surrounding enemies at once, repeatedly. It also proves useful when playing Pest Control, where multiple Spinners may be found on a single space; using the special attack can distract the mass from healing the portal. Additionally, the sword has the same crush bonus as the obsidian maul and Godsword, making it an effective crush weapon.
