|Destroy||Empty: The bag is empty. Are you sure you want to destroy it?|
Filled: If you destroy it, the contents will be lost.
|Examine||You can store stuff in the bag when you're in the Wilderness.|
Tradeable items can only be stored whilst in the Wilderness, including the Ferox Enclave, by using them on the looting bag. Stackable items like runes, arrows or noted items stack in the looting bag as they would in the inventory.
The looting bag may also be used in PvP worlds near some of the common Player Killing hotspots shown below:

Obtaining[edit | edit source]
It can be obtained as a drop from any monster in the Wilderness, excluding aviansies and abyssal demons, and cannot be picked up with Telekinetic Grab. NPCs that spawn in the Wilderness while doing Treasure Trails, such as double agents, can also drop the looting bag.
It can also be purchased at Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing for 1 Last Man Standing point. A looting bag note can also be purchased from players, the Grand Exchange, or bought from Justine's Last Man Standing shop. This note can be exchanged at a bank for a looting bag.
The drop rate of a looting bag depends on the monster's combat level. Monsters with a combat level of 10 or lower have a 1/15 chance of dropping the looting bag, while those that are level 50 or higher have a 1/3 chance. The drop rate for monsters with combat levels between those two caps is 1/(150/level).[better source needed]
Usage[edit | edit source]
Players can use the Open option, which makes every tradeable item picked up go straight into the looting bag whilst in the Wilderness, including inside the Ferox Enclave. Once players have looted their desired items, they can use the Close option to have items go into the inventory instead.
When using items on a closed bag, players will be asked how many they wish to store (one, five, or all). Should players wish to have the bag always store as many as possible when using items on it (such as dragon bones), they may use the Settings option to always store as many as possible of the desired item.
Players can deposit items in the bank by accessing the bank interface, where they can click on the looting bag to show its contents. Clicking on the items or the "deposit all" function will send the items to the bank. Unbankable items will be moved to the player's inventory instead.
Upon destroying a looting bag in the Wilderness, all items inside are dropped on the ground, available for everyone to immediately see. Certain items such as food, potions, or vials of water will be destroyed in the process. Destroying a looting bag outside of the Wilderness, including the Ferox Enclave, will cause all items inside to be lost.
It is extremely popular for both player killers and monster hunters, as player killers can place items in the bag without having to use or drop most of their supplies, which can weaken them greatly. Players killing monsters like green dragons can add an extra 14 kills to the looting bag in addition to what they have in their inventory, boosting profit rates per hour. Stored items in the looting bag do not add extra weight for the player. It is also used by Ultimate Ironman players as extra storage for items they do not currently need but wish to hold onto, although as they cannot use the bank, the only way for them to get the contents inside is to die, or destroy the bag in the Wilderness and pick up the items.
If the player dies with a looting bag, it is always lost upon death, even if the player does not have anything else, that is prioritised over it. When this happens, the player who killed the person holding the looting bag will get everything inside the bag, excluding food and potions.
The bag can be brought onto Entrana, as long as there are no prohibited items in it.

Changes[edit | edit source]
|30 April 2020

|9 August 2018
|5 April 2018
Destroying a looting bag within the Wilderness now drops the items within it (except food and potions) to the ground to prevent victims from "denying" their killer from getting the items in their looting bag by destroying it. Outside the Wilderness, contents are still destroyed.
|30 November 2017
The "Settings" option was added, allowing players to change how many of an item are stored by default.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- If you try to store the looting bag within itself while the storage interface is open, a message in the chatbox will appear, stating You may be surprised to learn that bagception is not permitted.
