Rune thrownaxe detail.png

The rune throwing axe, like all throwing axes, is a members-only Ranged throwing weapon and is the second most powerful type of throwing axe, behind the dragon thrownaxe. To wield a rune throwing axe the player must have at least 40 Ranged.

They can be purchased from the Tribal Weapon Salesman at the Ranging Guild. They are also obtained as a drop from Ninja implings.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player performs the rune thrownaxe's special attack, Chainhit.

The rune thrownaxe has a special attack, Chainhit, that ricochets off the target and hits multiple other opponents in a multi-combat area. This can target up to 5 opponents.

Each hit consumes 10% of the player's special attack energy. For example: 3 hits consumes 30%, while 5 hits consume 50%.

Many players use this in Waterbirth Island Dungeon as an efficient way of reaching the Dagannoth Kings. This is because with a pet rock and the rune thrownaxe, the player can make their way to the dungeon's sub-levels without a need of a partner. When used on the middle barricade support, the rune thrownaxe's special attack will destroy all three barricade supports without having to have another player attack it from the opposite side.
