Hurricane is a two-handed threshold Attack ability that requires level 55 Attack to use. Hurricane's cooldown is shared with Destroy.

When activated, the player spins on the spot, dealing 66-219% ability damage to all targets in a 3x3 area of the player, including targets standing on the player's square. The player's main target is hit a second time for 84-161% ability damage. Targets standing behind walls are not damaged.

Halberds, the Noxious scythe, and the dragon rider lance deal damage in a 5x5 area.

Hurricane is fairly similar to Quake, however:

  • Hurricane deals more damage due to its higher minimum damage and second hit.
  • Hurricane does not reduce defence nor raise affinity values.


  • Although the ability's name is "Hurricane", the symbol is of a tornado.
  • Hurricane used to deal 400% weapon damage, but due to a change in the beta which significantly increased damage of all weapons, this was reduced to 188% damage. With the release of Legacy Mode, Hurricane's damage was raised to a maximum of 219%. The update on 13 July 2015 added a second hit to Hurricane that deals 84-161% weapon damage to the main target.
  • Hurricane was known as Whirlwind in Jagex's test servers for the Evolution of Combat.
