Note: If you're already wearing these items when you log in you'll need to reequip them to gain the chance boost, you should get the message "You look more festive! The Blessing of Winter effect has increased."

Ways to obtain

The Festive cracker can be obtained in the following ways:

  • Handing in your first daily challenge each day.
  • Earning 10,000 renown in the bird and the beast event for your faction.
  • Any combat or skilling activity that can earn you a spin ticket.
  • Events: Twice each day (2am & 8pm UTC) 200 crackers will be dropped at Falador party room, along with the community team planned events.
  • Eating any kind of food.



In addition to the owner of the cracker getting an item reward, both players involved in the pulling of the cracker will receive 1,000 bonus experience in a randomly chosen skill.


  • If you get a cracker from skilling, it'll give the message: "Congratulations! You've earned a Festive Cracker."
  • Getting a cracker from the daily cracker task would give the message: "You have been awarded a festive cracker!"
    • Obtaining a cracker from handing in a daily challenge would give a different message: "Congratulations! You've earned a festive cracker! Pull it to see what's inside."
  • During a party room drop, bankers and Party Pete would exclaim: "Cracker drop at the Falador party room in X minutes!"
  • Using it on another player while they're banking would give the message: "<Name> is too busy to pull your cracker right now."
  • If a player recieved a Black Santa Hat from a cracker, a server wide message would announce:

Someone pulled their festive cracker and received a black Santa hat!

  • The first festive item you wear would give the message: "Merry Christmas! You have received the Blessing of Winter."
    • Subsequent clothing would display: "You look more festive! The Blessing of Winter effect has increased."
