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.

Better than a chaotic long sword or chaotic rapier.

I have all skills 99 and I have 7 B and I always use this weapon for all bosses and normal goblins. Goblins to OP!

2 Drygore Mace

Cost effective, extreme accuracy, prayer bonus.

3 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.

More monsters are weak to rapiers than long sword so they are the better choice, and are probably best on the list.

So much better than d claws!

4 Chaotic Rapier

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

Fast and great offensive effect when combined with a dragon defender

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

Great damage and accuracy, great for bossing

5 Bronze Scimitar

This item is truly amazing, you just can't live without it and it will help you through your runescape journey, its inexpensive and overall I'd say the most powerful weapon in the game, you surely wont regret choosing the Bronze Scimitar

Just flat put amazing! I could kill the queen black dragon in under 10 hits. No players could even match up to my skill while I used this

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

awesome

6 Abyssal Whip

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.

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.

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

7 Dragon Claws

Sorry but this isn't a good weapon on EoC

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

Great weapon to rush or spec out someone

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 its a beast!

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

Probally most damaging 2h weapon in the game I greatly suggest this to people who like 2h weapons but slow

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.

The Contenders

11 Armadyl Godsword

Having a high hitting special attack and very accurate slash attack makes this weapon a good choice for pker's

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

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)

Dragon claws are perfect for legacy mode but not for the eoc

12 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.

Very powerful weapon for pures and mid level players

Pretty good for mid and low

13 Abyssal Vine Whip

Hello guys anyway this weapon is the beast so screw you

It's the upgraded abyssal whip so it's better. enough said.

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

14 Rubber Chicken

Don't u think it is?

15 Dragon Dagger

This special attack is most likely the most common on used in the game at a very low cost and perfect for pking

Due to eoc the soecial attack no longer exist so longer is not as powerful as before and not tom good anymore

16 Rune Scimitar

Fast and has a pretty good hit and you can also have a shield

Do you kids even KNOW about F2P? - ThePeacemaker10

17 Korasi's Sword

Obtained from the quest The Void Stares Back. Requires 78 attack and 78 strength to wield.918 damage-1694 accuracy-stab style

This is the best non-degradable Main Hand weapon.

18 Steel Hatchet

1 hit any tree

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

Absolutly amazing must have weapon.

19 Brackish Blade

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

It's a bit good

20 Bandos Godsword

It will make them weaken in defense bye 1 until your targets defense level is down by 10 so you can fight the target easier to fight

When ever you hit you your target It will make there defense level go down bye one until 10 levels down so you can fight you target easer

21 Zaros Godsword

Worth as much as a blue party hat

ALL HAIL ZAROS

22 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

23 Flowers

Happy, yet deadly. Obviously the best around.

24 Spade

I dig so hard my enemies explode in jealousy.

25 Steel Scimitar

Best sword after bronze

26 Dragon Halberd

Has high damage and a low attack level and is cheap I think its about 400k

27 Easter Carrot

Absolute best and coolest looking weapon in runescape 2014. You can also wack off other players. Excuse me *wack* other players

28 Enhanced Excalibur

This isn't the best weapon in the game but it is one of the greatest along with a dygore weapon this offhand beast is incredibale

Its ability is very useful one of the best defensive abilities ever I don't get why a defender doesn't have something like this I truly love thisweapon it is hard to obtain but even when your a low level it is a grat weapon and is easy to get even if you don't have it enchanced you can still use it ability then change weapon best weapon I have ever used and I highly reccomend for all levels

I em sorrey I carnt speak englaish very well bat eye think these ise the best wepon in tse geme

29 Dragon Kiteshield

Defense is the best offense

30 Staff

This stiff wooden pole will make all your enemies fear you. With the Staff you can easily solo the mighty Vorago in a few hits. It is however said that only the chosen one may weild it.

31 Dragon Fire Sword

Easily the best weapon and its free as a reward from monkey madness 3, love it to bits!

32 Zamorakian Spear

Decent speed, high stats, low level required, good combos, hits hard,
I’m surprised I never see this mentioned anywhere..

33 Chaotic Longsword

This weapon is known for it's very high accuracy making it the perfect bossing weapon.

34 Saradomin Sword

The speed of a whip, with slightly higher numbers as well as a much better special attack.

This is a perfect sword for training Strength. They are perfect against deadly red spiders. Deadly red spiders are weak to crush and a saradomin sword is a crush weapon so... I train a lot with the ss... I highly recommend it for melee training. Greetings from TheEvilRobin.

The attack speed of a whip with the ability to train strength

Speedy, high hitter, devastator.
No more needs to be said...

35 Bronze Dagger

I was owned by a level 5 with this bad boy and I'm a level 112 with dragon claws!

Is there any weapon greater than this? I don't think so.

Best weapon in the game. Easily outhit my dual wielded drygore rapiers.

Best weapon

36 Mud Pie

So delicious the enemy will drown in their own saliva.

37 Jessika's sword

Can be purchased using 350 Void Knight commendation points after completion of The Void Stares Back. Requires 75 attack to wield.459 damage-1694 accuracy-stab style

38 Darklight

A great sword. It can actually outhit drygores when paired with a drygore off-hand. Unfortunately, it can only hit this high on demons.

39 Magic Secateurs

I love these things they are great for bossing, PKing and don't forget!... Farming

40 Barrelchest Anchor

If you like quests and you are a mid level player. This baby is perfect

41 Khukuri

It is the best wepon in the world

It is used in world war

42 Dragon Spear

Whether your pissing people off in castle wars or just helping your team pile. This weapon is responsible for so many #palmfaces.
