The rune battleaxe is the third strongest battleaxe in RuneScape, with the leaf-bladed battleaxe being the strongest and the dragon battleaxe being the second strongest. Like all rune weapons, it requires 40 Attack to wield.

Players may make a rune battleaxe with 95 Smithing by using 3 rune bars at an anvil with a hammer, giving the player 225 Smithing experience.

Any monster that has access to the rare drop table can also drop the rune battleaxe.

The rune battleaxe's main attack is a slashing style, with a crushing secondary attack which is only slightly less accurate than the main attack. The main slashing attack is available in all melee fighting styles except controlled, whereas the secondary crushing attack is only available as an aggressive style.
