Rune 2h sword equipped

The Two-handed sword is one of the slowest but most powerful weapons in any metal set. It is a two-handed weapon, so it cannot be wielded with a shield, and is the one of the only Free-to-play melee weapon with this characteristic with the exception of the Golden Hammer obtained from a Golden Cracker, the Easter Carrot, and the Scythe all of which are from special events or holidays.

Two-handed swords offer Slash and Crush attack styles in which it provides high bonuses in compensation for its slow speed with the exception of the Gravite 2h, which has negative Slash bonuses and a speed of 4. Players should choose the primary slash against most opponents, and the secondary crush against opponents wearing plate armour, such as platebody and platelegs.

In the older days of RuneScape, It featured a "Stab" option as well. This was replaced with the "Chop" option around the same release date of the Godswords (August 2007).

Members can buy two-handed swords in Gaius' Two Handed Shop in Taverley.

History and usage

File:2hCape.gif

Two-handed sword was the first choice of weapons in RuneScape Classic because there was no difference in speed between weapons, meaning someone could quickly and easily kill a player with this. After the transition to RuneScape 2, its popularity dropped because of the implementation of the aforementioned speed differences, making the Two handed Sword only capable of one strike in the time a scimitar could make two.

It is relatively common in F2P (Free To Play) player killing, where it is used to make finishing blows. Free to play rangers most often bring a two-handed sword to finish fights as they do not have a ranged weapon efficient in finishing blows. As a "surprise" weapon, it is similar to using the Obsidian maul, Granite maul, or Dragon dagger.

In a game update a while ago[source needed], the two-handed sword was given new, realistic, and more fluid animations. Before the major update, the two-handed swords were wielded in one hand leaning on the shoulder. About two years before that update they were held in one hand like a normal, right-handed weapon, and the hilts of the two-handed swords looked slightly different. However, Jagex improved this by giving it a more realistic look with actual two-handed wielding. Because of this, the price has increased, especially in the case of the Rune 2h sword, which some players were selling for as much as 90-100k (although the Exchange price is now about 36,735 coins). The two-handed sword is now the only weapon with different animations for every attack option. It is interesting to note that wielding any two-handed sword makes the player's cape (if any) billow in the breeze, a unique animation. NPCs that use two-handed swords often do not have the cape animation.
