The dragon battleaxe is the second-strongest battleaxe available, only behind the leaf-bladed battleaxe. It can only be wielded by members who have at least 60 Attack and who have completed the Heroes' Quest.
As with all dragon weapons, players cannot make this item through the Smithing skill.
A player wielding a dragon battleaxe.
A player using the dragon battleaxe's special attack, Rampage.
The dragon battleaxe has a special attack, Rampage; when toggled, the player character immediately hefts the weapon above their head, consuming 100% of their special attack energy. This drains the player's Attack, Defence, Ranged, and Magic levels by 10%, while increasing their Strength level by [10 + (levels drained / 4)]. The strength boost is comparable to that of a super strength potion. However, depending on the player's combat levels and preexisting boosts, it can raise strength by up to +21*. To get this boost you have to drink a Zamorak Brew, Super Restore, Super Defence, Ranging Potion and Magic Potion before using the Dragon Battleaxe special attack. Doing so will get you the maximum Strength level of 120, the highest in the game.
This accounts for the popularity of this weapon; although it is seldom used in combat, it is entirely possible to use Rampage for a strength boost and then revert to a primary melee weapon. The drained stats can be recovered using a restore potion.
Alternatively, drinking from a fancy/ornate rejuvenation pool eliminates the hefty stat penalties and special energy cost of Rampage while retaining the strength boost.
*Cannot boost strength past 118 anymore, players used to be able to boost to 120 but the level cap is now set at 118
