In Old School RuneScape (OSRS), "stab" type weapons are those primarily designed to deal damage to enemies through thrusting attacks. These weapons are effective against enemies that have weaknesses to piercing attacks. "Stab" type attacks are particularly useful against creatures that have weaker armor in specific areas, such as dragons in their bellies or monsters weak to piercing attacks.
Some of the most common "stab" type weapons in OSRS include daggers, short swords, and spears. These weapons often have bonuses to the "stab" attack attribute in their statistics, which means they are more accurate when performing thrusting attacks. Additionally, some of these weapon types might have special effects or require certain skill levels to be used efficiently.
In summary, "stab" type weapons in OSRS focus on thrusting attacks and are a strategic choice when facing enemies weak to this type of attack.

Ghazi Rapier is so effective that every other weapon seems only decent when compared to it. While the rapier is the best stab weapon in OSRS, it is also a one-handed weapon. It provides a +89 strength bonus and a +94 stab bonus.
The rapier is highly used within the Slayer community and is considered to be highly efficient to train your slayer with. While it can be combined with a holy ornament kit, it does not grant any bonuses but makes the weapon count as a Saradomin item in God Wars Dungeon.
The Ghazi rapier can be obtained by the monumental chest inside the Theatre of Blood (ToB), and it has a 1/86 chance of dropping. The rapier doesn’t have any special attack, and it is compared to the Blade of Saeldor and the Inquisitor’s mace for the melee weapon with the highest damage output for general use.
Rapier is used as a primary weapon while Pking. High-skilled Pkers like to bring Ghazi rapier as their DPS weapon while tribriding or deep wildy Pking.
Statistics Requirements: To equip the Ghrazi Rapier, you need to have a minimum Attack level of 80.
Approximate Damage: 94.7% of maximum damage.
Singled handed and extremely fast, the Abyssal Dagger is the best dagger in OSRS with a stab bonus of +75.
The dagger has the same special effect as the Dragon Dagger, but does not include a boost to accuracy and damage.
This means that it’s overall a stronger weapon, but cannot hit as high as the Dragon Dagger when comparing special attacks.
Nowadays the dagger is mostly used by pures looking to increase their strength levels.
Statistics Requirements: To equip the Abyssal Dagger, you need to have a minimum Attack level of 70.
Approximate Damage: 91.1% of maximum damage.
Dragon Hunter Lance is the upgraded version of Zamorakian Hasta. The lance increases both accuracy and damage by 20% when fighting dragons, any draconic creatures, such as wyverns and the Great Olm.
Players love using lance because it stacks with Void armor and the Slayer helm (i). Although, in comparison with Zamorakian Hasta, it loses prayer and defensive bonuses, strength bonuses, and special attack.
The lance can be obtained by killing The Alchemical Hydra, which can be found in the lowest level of the Karuulum Slayer Dungeon. You need a 95 slayer to be able to kill the Hydra. If you’re not a patient PvM player, then purchasing it on G/E should be the best move.
Dragon Hunter Lance is the best stab weapon in OSRS when slaying Dragons, especially if you’re into farming Vorkath. While many players like to use range, using the lance will highly impact your kills per hour, especially if you prefer melee instead of range.
Statistics Requirements: 78 Attack, Completion of the Firemaking, Fishing and Smithing sections of Barbarian Training.
Approximate Damage: 89.5% of maximum damage.
Zamorakian Hasta cannot be obtained directly by any monster or made by a player. The player has to acquire a Zamorakian spear and take it to Otto Godblessed and pay him 300k to make him one.
It is the most popular weapon against enemies weak to stab, especially those such as Dragons. The difference between Zamorakian hasta and other stab weapons is that besides its accuracy and stab bonus of +85, it’s a one-handed melee weapon.
While other weapons do not provide you defense bonuses, Zamorakian hasta possesses the highest defensive bonuses for a player. This weapon has an unpopular special attack, which stuns people and monsters by pushing them back during combat. Therefore, making it useless while killing monsters.
The interesting feature about Zamorakian hasta is that it can be upgraded to the dragon hunter lance. You have to combine the Hydra’s claw with your hasta to get the dragon hunter lance. This process cannot be reversed and you will get a warning when trying to do so.
Statistics Requirements: 70 Attack, 55 Fishing, and Completion of Fishing and Smithing Barbarian Training.
Approximate Damage: 92.4% of maximum damage.
Concluding our list of the best OSRS stab weapons, Guthan’s Warspear is a two-handed weapon in OSRS and cannot be made using the Smithing skill. It’s the second most accurate spear in the game, which has a +85 Stab bonus, falling short only against Zamorakian spear/hasta.
Successful melee attacks have a passive effect if wielded together with other pieces of Guthan’s armor set. This passive effect has a 25% chance of restoring health to the user, equal to the damage dealt to the target.
Because of its passive effect many players like to use full Guthan’s to afk train their combat skills such as Attack, Strength, Defense, and Hitpoints. But not only that, you can use this set to reset your health without using food at different high-level bossing such as Bandos, Zilyana, and more.
However, Guthan’s spear is slower than most spears, which has an attack rate of 5 ticks rather than 4. The downside is that the Barrows equipment degrades while in combat. It can be used for up to 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely, and when repaired, it will cost quite a lot. The lower the smithing level, the higher the price you’ll have to pay to repair it.
Statistics Requirements: 70 Attack.
