Thrownaxes are a type of member's only Ranged throwing weapon. They must either be bought from the Tribal Weapons store at the Ranging Guild or from another player, as they cannot be made using the Smithing skill. They can be wielded with shields and prayer books for protection.
In terms of both damage and attack speed, thrownaxes are a balance between throwing knives and javelins. They are not as strong as javelins, but they have a slightly faster attack speed. They are the only thrown weapon type that cannot be poisoned.
