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 to 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 65% of the special attack bar. This special attack is similar to the Dorgeshuun crossbow, bone dagger, and barrelchest anchor.
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 and stat reduction that can be inflicted on other players in PvP situations. The special attack can be particularly effective against players with little to no Defence levels as it can then significantly decrease their Strength, making 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.

- The Bandos godsword's special attack previously required 100% special attack energy, and only dealt 10% more damage than a regular blow. The special attack energy cost and damage boost were changed to 65% and 21% respectively after being polled, allowing the special attack to be much more viable.
