The Bandos godsword is one of the four variants of the Godsword; the hilt is received from General Graardor whilst the blade's shards are attainable from any other boss or boss minion in the God Wars Dungeon. As with all godswords, it requires 75 Attack to wield. Its special attack, "Warstrike", 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 30 Defence and 20 Strength levels (leaving the target with 0 Defence and 10 Strength). The special attack drains 65% of the special attack bar. This special attack is similar to the Dorgeshuun crossbow, bone dagger, dragon warhammer 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. 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. Moreover, any player lacking a stat restore potion will continue to suffer the effects of the lost stats until they escape the PvP scenario or are killed.
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. The special attack is more effective against NPC's and players relying on high defence bonuses rather than high defence levels, as losing defence levels quickly renders defence bonus redundant.
This Godsword is sometimes chosen by some players due to its relatively low cost and 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.
