Penance Runners are only encountered while playing the Barbarian Assault minigame. The Runners cannot be attacked by conventional means such as melee or ranged attacks. Instead players must kill the Runners by luring it to the Runner trap with bait or by shooting eggs via the Egg Launcher. It is the job of the Defender to prevent Runners from running south and entering the cave opening, which results in 3 points being deducted from the group score for each escaping Runner.

Penance Healers may target the Penance Runners and heal them to full health.
