The iron platebody is the next weakest platebody after bronze. Like the bronze platebody, it has no requirement to be worn. This makes it the best platebody for brand-new melee players. However, for intermediate players using Ranged or Magic equipment, an iron platebody is not a good choice due to its crippling negative bonus in those skills. If playing as an ironman, an Ironman platebody can be acquired instead with equivalent stats.

Players can smith them from 5 iron bars if they have at least level 33 Smithing. Doing so will yield 125 Smithing experience.
