OSRS weapons

Weapons tend to be found in most online games. You generally want to use the right one for the job, so today im going to do a quick overview of them all.

Daggers


Daggers are generally useless, they’re mostly used for their special abilities with the notably one being the double hit. Mostly underwhelming.

Swords


Swords are the archetypal weapon of the medieval era games and are obviously present in runescape in great number with the most popular being the dragon scimitar and a not-so-close second being the dragon longsword.

Maces


Generally maces aren’t particularly useful since they have quite poor damage, compared to the swords. However there are a few exceptions like the ancient mace, which can be used to drain the prayer points from your enemies.

Spears


These exclusive two-handed weapons are generally slow, however they have prodigious damage. With the two notables being the Zamorakian spear and Crystal Halberds which are useful in end-game raids.

Staves


Staves are generally used by magic-users and when they are they are quite useful. With the elemental staves enabling you to cast spells without expending certain runes they also generally increase your magic accuracy, so they are a welcome addition to any mages outfit.

Bows


There exist long and shortbows, however the longbows are generally ignored since they have such a slow attack speed. With most of the endgame actually being dominated by the rune crossbow.

Hope this was of help, see you next time.
