Scythe detail.png

The scythe is an untradeable event reward. It can be obtained by completing one of the Halloween holiday events that occur once per year.

The scythe is not particularly powerful, as it is intended to be a decorative weapon. It has very low bonuses and the same attack speed as a battleaxe. Notably, it has several unique attack animations.

The scythe was also dropped from 3–10 June 2013 across Gielinor, where players would find them spawn on the ground across in random pre-set locations all over Old School RuneScape.

This item can be stored in the toy box of a costume room.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Scythe uses the default error examine info of "It's a [Item name]", as Jagex forgot to add any examine details during the RuneScape 2 Beta. The same oversight occurred with the Santa hat.
