Every Saturday and Sunday in December is a Winter Weekend – that's five weekends, each with its own bonus for RuneScape members!

We're kicking things off with a weekend of double drops from bosses, the Barrows, and more. A whole range of bosses and other beasties are waiting to be taken down – emerge victorious and fill your inventory with double the rewards! What's more, the Barrows chest will also yield double the bounty. That means you could end up with two pieces of much-coveted Barrows armour!

For full details of which enemies will give you double drops this weekend, see our FAQ.

This weekend of double drop mayhem runs from Saturday 1st December 00:00 GMT until Sunday 2nd December 23:59 GMT. Don’t forget that every Winter Weekend hosts a new bonus – next week there'll there'll be double rewards from minigames!

If you’re you're after more festive fun, anyone who becomes a member in December will get the awesome Festive Aura and receive a +50% XP boost for 30 minutes a day! To grab your aura, click here and become a member today.

“People are continually pointing out to me the wretchedness of white people in order to console me for the wretchedness of blacks. But an itemized account of the American failure does not console me and it should not console anyone else. That hundreds of thousands of white people are living, in effect, no better than the "African Americans" is not a fact to be regarded with complacency. The social and moral bankruptcy suggested by this fact is of the bitterest, most terrifying kind.”

I was wondering if they'd announce a double drop again. Sounds exciting! Hope places aren't too packed.

I'm honestly starting to think the EOC hit the playerbase hard and a lot of people left. All these bonuses seem desperate attempts to get players back, but hey that's just my opinion

Stand among the ashes of a trillion dead souls and ask the ghosts if honor matters. The silence is your answer.

On the bright side, now all the new items they have added like wands, Nex gloves, and Dragon limbs can crash too...

I plan to go to barrows for the lack of competition over kills, although if the 75+ chests I've done so far since eoc are anything to go by theres nothing to look forward to >.>
