Rune warhammer detail.png

The rune warhammer is the second strongest type of warhammer in the game, better than the adamant warhammer but weaker than the dragon warhammer. Players can make a rune warhammer with the Smithing skill at level 94 using 3 runite bars, giving 225 Smithing experience.

Unlike other rune weapons, it requires 40 Strength to wield and has no Attack requirement, making it popular as a knockout weapon for free-to-play strength pures.

The rune warhammer can be used as a substitute for a regular hammer when banging the big door at the entrance of Bandos' Stronghold in the God Wars Dungeon.
