Multicombat area

A multicombat area[1], also known as a Multiway Combat area[2] is an area of the RuneScape world where a player or monster can be attacked by more than one player or monster at a time.

Multicombat areas are identified upon entering by two crossed swords (This icon indicates that a player is in a multicombat area) which appear in the bottom right hand corner of the interface. Anywhere else is classified as a single combat area.

Multicombat areas are especially dangerous in the Wilderness, as a player can be attacked by more than one monster (most notably a revenant) at a time. It is very useful, though, to be in a multicombat area while monster slaying with friends, as lone players can be killed easily.

Notice, when you are using Magic/Ranged on an enemy behind a barrier, such as ranging the guards on the Ice Mountain, even though it's not a multicombat area, as long as you aren't under attack, you can attack more than one enemy.

Multicombat is also required for a Summoning familiar to assist in combat, since a player and their familiar both fight one enemy.[3]

Some multicombat areas include:


  • Usually, when fighting a single monster with other players, the player that applied the most total damage at the end of the battle gets the monster's item/coin drop.
  • Players can "taunt" multiple enemies by simply attacking all of them without killing them then running to a farther location. The monsters "taunted" will follow the player causing the monsters to "pile" the player.
  • What determines if you are in able to attack someone else is based on the zone they are currently in, which means one could attack multiple from a single-combat zone as long as they are in a multicombat area. This will also mean that only one person can attack you if you are in a single-combat area.
