The fighter hat is a piece of members-only armour that requires 45 Defence to wear, and is obtained through the Barbarian Assault minigame. Players with 275 honour points in each role and who have killed the Penance Queen can purchase the hat from Commander Connad, located on the ground floor of the Barbarian Outpost.
The fighter hat is sometimes used in place of the warrior helm and berserker helm. The warrior helm provides slightly better defensive bonuses, but offers an attack bonus to slash only, while the fighter hat also provides attack bonuses to stab and crush. The berserker helm has slightly better defensive bonuses and provides a strength bonus (+3), but provides no melee attack bonuses. The fighter hat is a popular choice among zerkers who prefer aesthetics over slightly increased defensive and strength bonuses.
If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 45,000 coins by using the item on Perdu.

|The fire cape, rune defender, and the penance items have had their config cost increased to allow them to be protected over rune armour on death.
