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.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

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 and bellows Raarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!, 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 pre-existing boosts, it can raise Strength by up to 21. Barring overload potions or an imbued heart, doing this requires a minimum of 97 ranged and 96 magic, as well as 99 attack and 92 defence (or vice versa if the player chooses to drink a saradomin brew). Players can then drink a Zamorak brew, super restore, super defence, ranging potion and magic potion before using the dragon battleaxe special attack to have more levels drained, which in turn increases the Strength boost. This allows players with 99 Strength to reach 120, the highest possible in the game.

The special attack providing an unlimited amount of Strength boosts accounts for the popularity of this weapon; although the weapon itself 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, or an attack/super attack potion if only melee damage output is a concern.

Alternatively, drinking from a fancy/ornate rejuvenation pool effectively eliminates the stat penalties and special energy cost of Rampage while retaining the Strength boost.
