Gunthor the brave chathead

Gunthor the Brave is a level 29 barbarian who lives in Barbarian Village. He is located in the Long Hall in the northern part of the village. He is stated to be a mighty warrior and a chieftain of the barbarians. Some players consider him a minor boss, which would make him the weakest non-quest boss in RuneScape.

Fighting strategyEdit

Players can either fight him with melee combatRanged, or Magic. Like all barbarians from Barbarian Village (except for Litara and Peksa), if a player talks to Gunthor, the player will be attacked.

Players who fight him with melee generally only should fight Gunthor when they have a Defence level of at least 20 (as he can hit often and deal high hits), as well as a weapon better than iron. Players who attack him using Ranged or Magic can do so safely from behind the tables or stools. He is weak to Magic and Ranged.

Gunthor the Brave is the highest level barbarian in Barbarian Village.


  • Players can grab free cooked meat and beer from the tables. They respawn about every minute. This can save the lives of lower levelled players.
  • Low levels can usually manage to kill Gunthor, however, he should still not be underestimated. If a player just brought decent foodweapons and armour, they can kill him easily, but it would have taken time.
  • Players with Cooking levels high enough to cook troutpike, or salmon can sometimes get these fish for free along the river near Barbarian Village. Players often powerfish there, dropping their catches. The fish can be cooked at the perpetual fire right in the Long Hall that Gunthor the Brave inhabited.
  • If players accidentally clicked the "Talk-to" option on him but did not want to fight him, they can just click somewhere else on the map to avoid the battle. Gunthor will only engage when the player had finished the conversation.
