A Battleaxe is one of several powerful one-handed melee weapons that are great for dealing large amounts of damage. They hit hard, but are among the slower weapons. They are stronger than longswords, but slower. They are also weaker than two-handed swords, but are slightly faster and one-handed. Players can buy battleaxes at Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar in Port Sarim, at Bob's Brilliant Axes in Lumbridge, or from trading with other players.
Battleaxes have a strength bonus second to the two-handed sword. This is a good weapon for players who neglect their Strength relative to their Attack. The key to the effective use of a battleaxe is accuracy, which is why it is essential that you have a decent attack level.
