Barge is a basic Attack ability, requiring level 30 Attack to use.

When activated, the player breaks free of all binds (but not stuns) and charges to their target, dealing 25-125% ability damage and binding them for 6.6 seconds. Barge has a maximum range of 10 squares.

Barge places the player within melee distance of his or her target, so it is useful for initiating combat with a faraway target and, in PvP, catching up to players attempting to flee.

The Mobile perk halves its cooldown to 10 seconds at the cost of gaining no adrenaline.

Barge can be upgraded to Mutated Barge through the use of a Mutated Barge ability codex


  • Until the 13 July 2015 patch notes, Barge shared a cooldown with Surge and Escape and could function as the melee version of those skills in the absence of a target.
  • Barge was named Charge in Jagex's test servers for the Evolution of Combat.
  • Despite the ability's description, the attack consists of the player kicking the target instead.
