The Dragon battleaxe is the strongest battleaxe. It can only be wielded by members who have at least 60 Attack and who have completed the Heroes' Quest. It can be bought in the Heroes' Guild for 200,000 coins. However, it is advised that players buy this weapon from the Grand Exchange in Varrock or another player as it is cheaper to do so.
Its special attack, Rampage, requires 100% special attack energy, and increases the player's Strength level by roughly 20% at the cost of Attack, Defence, Ranged and Magic (10% level reduction).although the special attack raises strength it lowers defence so it is not recommended for high leveled monsters. But camping on a monster where you use protect from melee it is recommended instead of a super strength potion.
When the special is activated, the player screams, "Raarrrrrgggggghhhhhhh!". (Note that this "shout-out" is only on English servers. On other servers, other "shout-outs" are found here.)
The strength boost accounts for the popularity of this weapon; however, although it isn't as commonly used as other dragon weapons, many will use the special attack to boost their strength level, switch to a faster weapon, and then drink a dose of a Restore potion. This weapon's special attack has gained popularity in the Pest Control minigame, as the player's special attack meter is refilled after the completion of each round. The battleaxe's special attack with a Stat restore potion can be used to replace a Super strength potion too.
