A detailed image of a bronze pickaxe.

The Bronze pickaxe is the weakest pickaxe in RuneScape. It can be used as a combat weapon or for mining. Since it is the weakest pickaxe in the game, it mines at an incredibly slow rate.

Members can smith a bronze pickaxe with 2 bronze bar at smithing level 5. First they must complete the Perils of Ice Mountain quest. Usually after a few combat level ups players buy iron and steel pickaxes from the Dwarven Mines.

Free-to-play respawns and locations

Players first encounter bronze pickaxes in the tutorial if they went through Tutorial Island. Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop in the Dwarven Mines Bob's Brilliant Axes provide bronze pickaxes. Dwarves frequently drop pickaxes when players defeat them. You can also buy a bronze pickaxe from the Grand Exchange in Varrock, but it is much cheaper if you are severely strapped for cash to buy it from Bob in Lumbridge.

In addition, players can find two bronze pickaxes on top of the towers guarding the gate to Lumbridge Castle. Players can also find a bronze pickaxe respawn point in a house at Rimmington, and there is also one lying on a table inside a hut at the Barbarian Village. The Mining tutor used to provide bronze pickaxes for free, before the Personalised Shops update. Since the update, Bob's Brilliant Axes now provides free samples of bronze pickaxes once in a while, replacing the mining tutor.

Combat use

Although obtained for free and easy to find, newer players prefer to use the bronze sword or training sword they receive from the combat tutors than the Bronze pickaxe. However, in PvP worlds, this may be used by PKers who do not wish their more powerful weapons, as it can be easily obtained from the two towers in front of Lumbridge Castle.
