Bandos godsword special attack

A player uses warstrike, the Bandos godsword's special attack

The Bandos godsword is one of the 4 Godswords; received in pieces from General Graardor in the God Wars Dungeon. As with all godswords, it requires 75 Attack to wield. Its special attack, "Warstrike", very similar to the Barrelchest anchor, inflicts 21% more damage and drains the opponent's combat stats equivalent of the damage hit in the following order: Defence, Strength, Attack, Prayer, Magic, Ranged. For example, if the special attack inflicts 50 damage on a foe with 30 in all combat stats, it would drain their Defence to 0 and their Strength to 10. The special attack drains 100% of the special attack bar. This special attack is similar to the Dorgeshuun crossbow, bone dagger, and barrelchest anchor. Because Strength is drained right after Defence, the special attack of the Bandos godsword can be potentially lethal to Strength pures who only have 1 Defence. A Stat Restore potion would be a good idea if you're fighting another player who is using a Bandos Godsword.


Because General Graardor is the most popular boss to kill in the God Wars Dungeon, the Bandos godsword is the most commonly seen godsword among players. Because of this relatively plentiful supply, the Bandos godsword is the cheapest of all the godswords, next in line being the Zamorak godsword. However, all of the godswords share the same combat bonuses. The only difference from the other Godswords is the special attack and the hilt.

This weapon has been made popular due to the devastating damage that can be inflicted on other players in PvP situations. This weapon can be very effective in the wilderness as it can significantly decrease their Strength levels make it difficult to fight back.

The Bandos godsword is also extremely useful for bosses with very high Defence levels. Should the player hit high damage, such as 40+ with the Bandos godsword "Warstrike" special attack, the defence of the boss will be significantly decreased, allowing the rest of the fight to be far easier, as more of the player's attacks will hit. This Godsword is sometimes chosen by some players due to low costs and its special attack.
