behead - launch a special behead attack on someone


behead <living> with <weapon>
behead <living> <style> with <weapon>
behead compare <style 1> with <style 2>


This command allows you to prepare an attack with a weapon (which does slicing or chopping damage) against an opponent in combat.

Your ability in fighting.special.weapon determines your ability to prepare the attack, and your weapon skill determines the efficacy of your attack. It will cost you 35 to 45 fighting guild points to attempt to behead, depending on the style chosen.


Aside from launching a special behead attack directly (using the "behead <living> with <weapon>" syntax), you can do more damage by using specific styles of beheading using the dedicated syntax. Accepted styles are: brutally, calmly, savagely, carefully and roughly.

While styled attacks do more damage than a plain behead, they are correspondingly harder to prepare. You can use the behead compare syntax to see the relative difficulties and damage of the various styles. To compare a given style with plain specials, use for instance "behead compare calmly with default".
