Become an Ironman

Game Versions:

Ironman Mode is an account type in both RuneScape and Old School RuneScape that encourages you to be entirely self-sufficient. Looking for the ultimate test? Follow these steps to create an Ironman account.



  1. Create a new account
  2. Log in to RuneScape
  3. During character creation, under 'Advanced mode' select 'Ironman mode' or 'Hardcore ironman mode'



Old School 

  1. Create a new account
  2. Log in to Old School
  3. At the end of Tutorial Island, speak to the Iron Man tutor Paul before being teleported by the Magic Instructor



Adding Ironman to an existing account
It's not possible to become an Ironman after account creation.

If you missed selecting Ironman mode, your Ironman character died, or you gained unwanted XP we're unable to rollback the account. So if you wish to become an Ironman or want to start over please create a brand new account. 


Bought membership on your account?
If you've placed membership on a non-Ironman account by mistake, please get in touch so we can look into transferring the membership onto the correct account.
