Best Runescape Melee Weapons

The Top Ten
1 Drygore Longsword

Best melee weapon currently in RuneScape, with a damage of 1102, and 4957 points of accuracy. When combined with an Off-hand drygore longsword, you can have extreme damage and accuracy. Unfourtunately, this item degrades over time, and must be repaired after 10 hours of combat. It costs 907,500 coins to fully repair this weapon.

Drygore weapons are the highest tier of melee weapons, also the best accuracy and damage... If anyone is waiting to buy drygores... Don't! Buy them right now! And go for longswords!

Best, period, no substitutes (ok maybe for rapier)
Only things that beat this are in dungeoneering and can't be taken out.

Better than a chaotic long sword or chaotic rapier.

2 Bronze Scimitar

Undoubtedly, this is the best weapon in RuneScape. The forging of my bronze scimmy took years to work on, requiring 200 smithing, 99 mining JUST to get the required items for it's forging, after the rework of Mining and Smithing, this merely became the greatest weapon in the game, no doubt about it. I fear the bronze scimmy wielder over anything else on any day of the year.

I have named my Bronze Scimitar "Swiper" I've built such an attachment on how reliable and powerful this weapon is. I will never go anywhere without "Swiper" I just feel so safe knowing whatever I face "Swiper" will take it down. You NEED a Bronze Scimitar for yourself!

Inspirational description and reasonable evaluation. I'm pleased to know that its potency is recognised by others than just myself.

This weapon is probably the best in game. My uncle wanted to buy it from me for one whole night even if he's so hot I didn't accept his offer.

3 Drygore Mace

Cost effective, extreme accuracy, prayer bonus.

4 Drygore Rapier

It hits pretty fast and hits really high. The only negative point is that is really expensive. I recommend it with a off-hand drygore rapier because it 2 times better then

Same stats as the long sword other then it has stab and the long sword is slash.

Had a set got owned by a mage in red .

So much better than d claws!

5 Chaotic Rapier

Fast hitting, high stab, and nice strength bonus make this a nice pick for the #1 spot.

Love this weapon, Very fast stabbing! Awesome/High hit's.

Fast and great offensive effect when combined with a dragon defender

6 Abyssal Whip

The whip is one of the fastest weapons in the game and can be upgraded to the abyssal vine whip. The vine whip has better accuracy and damage but requires 85 slayer to make.

One of the most common weapons in the game and one of the best for those who are mid level and don't want to spend the time getting 80 dungeoneering.

I have all skills level 75 up. I always use this.
I just love the look, motion and damage.
I would marry this whip.

I don't know what all this new garbage is about, but back in my day we whipped things hard.

7 Dragon Claws

Most deadly special attack in the game comes from these making it the 2nd best melee weapon.

8 Chaotic Maul

If high hits are your thing then this is just the weapon for you.

I love this weapon. Slow, buy with abilities it's a beast!

Best chaotic but has slow attacks. It can hit very high like up to 700s

9 Primal Longsword

The highest stats of a one-handed weapon and the best looking weapon in the game as well. You even have the option to have a shield or dual wield!

10 Saradomin GodSword

This is the best godsword in my opinion, even better than Armadyl Godsword. It's special doesn't hit quite as hard, but restores both your health AND prayer for only 50% adrenaline. Also, even if the monster you are killing is almost dead and you kill it with the special, you get the health and prayer bonus that you would have gotten for the hit, instead of just the damage you've dealt to kill it. It's passive effect if you choose to switch it is also incredible. Amazing!

It restores health and prayer points while having very good accuracy and it is fast enough. It is the best option to train attack, defense and strength and it doesn't degrade over time

Never actually need to worry about running to the bank for food.

Sword of the god saradomin, no food, just free heals and in eoc, you get tons of heals!

The Contenders
11 Armadyl Godsword

I think this is a great sword. Being around 7mil I believe. This tops over the d claws, especially now that the update has been up. The hits are insane with the Armadyl godsword. It will crush anyone who stands in its way. Infact there was a person with like 85 magic and he stood no chance against me. I killed him around 5 times easily. If you have the money I thik it would be a great choice for U. Maybe with some bandos too. (or dragon if you don't have that money)

Armadyl godsword is a good, cheap sword and has a great speical attack and is quiet accurate. great weapon choice in my opinion

12 Rubber Chicken

Used to kill kbd with this weapon in under 3 seconds. Best weapon I ever used

13 Dragon Scimitar

It doesn't matter what class you are, warrior, rouge, mage, it is a great melee weapon that can kill and is fast.

14 Abyssal Vine Whip

Upgraded version of whip, good to train combat with no need to break your drygore/chaotic

15 Rune Scimitar
16 Dragon Dagger
17 Korasi's Sword

This is the best non-degradable Main Hand weapon.

18 Zaros Godsword
19 Steel Hatchet

What more could you ask for? Speed in a heated pvp, then a useful tool for chopping an oak afterward.

OP. Jagex needs to remove this weapon. use it at your advantage while you can

20 Noxious Scythe

A 2H scythe with 2011 Damage and 2458 Accuracy, this weapon is the best meele 2H in the game. It has a special attack called Mirrorback which summons a spider which takes incoming damage instead of you, and reflects it onto your attacker. It requires level 90 Attack to use and can be bought at the grand exchange or created by items obtained from Araxxi kills. I quit using drygores alltogether after getting this weapon, its damage is truly awesome!

Acts as a halberd so you have greater range, making it, simply put, OP for arraxor/arraxi!
Pk with this and every attack equals an Armadyl Godsword special attack

21 Bandos Godsword
22 Brackish Blade

Fast attack speed and high stab makes this a perfect dragon slaying weapon

It's a bit good

23 Flowers

Happy, yet deadly. Obviously the best around.

24 Zangetsu
25 Steel Scimitar

Best sword after bronze
