The barrelchest anchor is obtained after killing Barrelchest in The Great Brain Robbery quest. 60 Attack and 40 Strength are required to wield it. Players receive this item in a broken state and must pay Smith on the docks of Mos Le'Harmless a fee of 230,000 coins to repair the anchor. Note that Book o' piracy is needed to properly speak with Smith. If it is lost, players can retrieve another damaged anchor from Brother Tranquility or purchase a repaired one from Perdu for 290,000 coins.

The barrelchest anchor's stats are almost equal to Dharok's greataxe. It is well known as a PKing weapon, used in combos such as anchor to Granite maul specials.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

A player using the barrelchest anchor's special attack, Sunder.

The barrelchest anchor has a special attack, Sunder, which doubles the player's accuracy, increases max damage by 10%, and lowers the opponent's Attack, Defence, Ranged, or Magic level (chosen at random from among those still above 1) by 10% of the damage dealt.[1] This consumes 50% of the player's special attack energy.
