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