"kg" redirects here. For the item suffix, see (kg).

Every item in Old School RuneScape has weight, which can affect a user in their gameplay. Players can see the total weight of the items they have equipped (measured in kilograms) or are carrying in their inventory on the Equipment Stats screen. Some items weigh with a fraction but the Equipment Stats screen will round down to the nearest kilogram.

The rate at which energy depletes while running scales linearly between 0 kg and 64 kg weight, where having 0 kg weight will deplete a player's run energy at the normal rate and having 64 kg weight will deplete a player's run energy at exactly twice the normal rate. Having a weight outside the range of 0 kg to 64 kg has no additional effect.[1] A player's Agility level contributes to how quickly run energy is restored, but does not affect the rate at which a player's run energy is depleted.

Some activities in Old School RuneScape require players to not weigh more than a certain amount. Example: diving off Port Khazard during and after Recipe for Disaster (Freeing Pirate Pete subquest); walking on the bridge in Temple of Ikov.

Stackable items such as runes, coins, and other items do not have a weight. Some items also reduce weight instead of adding, which is very useful for quests or activities that require a lot of running.

Weight reducing items[edit | edit source]

Item Weight (kg)
Spotted cape.png Spotted cape -2.2
Spottier cape.png Spottier cape -4.5
Agility cape.png Agility cape -4.0
Boots of lightness.png Boots of lightness -4.5
Penance gloves.png Penance gloves -4.5
Graceful hood.png Graceful hood -3.0
Graceful top.png Graceful top -5.0
Graceful cape.png Graceful cape -4.0
Graceful legs.png Graceful legs -6.0
Graceful gloves.png Graceful gloves -3.0
Graceful boots.png Graceful boots -4.0
Pufferfish.png Pufferfish -0.5

Currently, wearing the combination of a spottier cape, boots of lightness, penance gloves, graceful hood, graceful top and graceful legs allows the player to have weight as low as -27.5 kg. with a full inventory of pufferfish this is lowered to -41.5 kg. This is the minimum amount of weight currently possible. All weight reducing items are wearables and have to be worn to 'activate' the weight reduction, with the exception of pufferfish.

Greatest weight[edit | edit source]

The current greatest weight possible player can weigh at any given time is 1018.2 kg. Items required to wear in order to reach this weight are:

Slot Item Weight (kg)
Headwear Golden helmet 31.7
Cape Diving apparatus 10
Neckwear Seal of passage 4.5
Ammunition - 0
Weapon Barrelchest anchor 30*
Shield - 0
Body Granite body 22
Legs Granite legs 15
Hands Skeletal gloves/Spined gloves 3
Boots Guardian boots 7
Ring Granite ring (i)/Granite ring 3
Inventory 28× Barrel of coal-tar (or any variation) 28×32 (896)
Total 1022.2

Note: The Barrelchest anchor is a 2-handed weapon, therefore the Shield slot will be empty.

Barrelchest anchor can be substituted with Crate with zanik or Ana in a barrel. Both of these weigh 2 kg more however these items are only available during Death to the Dorgeshuun and The Tourist Trap respectively.

Weighing[edit | edit source]

Since some items' weights which have fractions are rounded off in the Equipment Stats screen, it's hard to tell the real weight. Fortunately, there are some known weights to help find out. These items are also not hard to find.

Item Weight (kg)
Gnomeball 0.500
Ground bat bones 0.100
Empty oyster 0.080
Vial of water 0.020
Any key (gold-coloured) 0.010
Rock (elemental) 0.001
